    So, Republicans want to kill fictional human beings and democrats want to help fictional human beings? Really turned those tables.

    When will you return to your full glory? Have you grown weary? I miss your debates man!

    @rvick

    Well, according to those who wrote or played a huge part in the drafting of the First amendment and establishment clause there is. I’ll take their word for it.

    @Lake

    Like Jewish bakeries in Germany?

    Got any evidence?

  • [2] October 21, 2015 at 1:39pm

    Do you have any empirical evidence? If I took personal anecdotes as evidence I would believe in everything. From the empirical evidence we do have it seems pretty clear that NDE’s are hallucinations from not only chemicals in the brain but the brain being deprived of oxygen. Many fighter pilots have experienced NDE’s when experiencing high G’s which deprives their brain of oxygen.

    A book on NDE from 1975? Well, 40yrs later we know quite a bit about what causes NDE’s. He should update his library.

    @henri

    So majority rule? You do realize the constitution is a protection for all it’s citizens against majority rule right? Just like the Danbury Baptists concerns, which you mentioned in a separate post, were put to rest by Thomas Jefferson because of the first amendment and the separation of church and state that it creates. If the country every became a muslim majority I would feel the same way as I do about this…all Americans citizens, which would include Christians should feel that their government and military was neutral when it came to religion. If Allah was showing up on government buildings and military bases I could completely understand how my Christian brothers and sisters would justifiably(for real this time) feel that their government was not giving them a fair shake or equal representation. Surely, you must see why the law will fall on the side of the First amendment and the establishment clause every time right?

    @henri

    part 2

    But lets just assume that the law, constitution, history, and facts are not on my side. Let’s say the framers of the constitution wanted the federal government and it’s military to show favor to a particular religion. That wouldn’t make it right today any more than it would make it right to own slaves as they did. 250 years later we have plenty of evidence in the middle east of governments favoring the majority religion over another and know how dangerous it is.

    @henri

    The first amendment and establishment clause, which has been shown time and time again, is not just about “establishment” but also about “preeminence” or favoring one religion over the other.

    I think this is hard to comprehend when it is your religion being shown favor creating a blind spot in your ability to reason effectively. I imagine if one the most powerful militaries in the world, for which I proudly served, showed favor to lets say Vishnu, Allah, or Xenu. You would have an easier understanding of why the 1st amendment and its establishment clause are so important.

    Let’s see what the person most responsible for the First Amendment had to say.

    “Congress should not establish a religion and enforce the legal observation of it by law, nor compel men to worship God in any manner conrtary to their conscience, or that one sect might obtain a pre-eminence, or two combined together, and establish a religion to which they would compel others to conform.” James Madison (Annals of Congress, Sat Aug 15th, 1789 pages 730 – 731).

    “The civil Government, though bereft of everything like an associated hierarchy, possesses the requisite stability, and performs its functions with complete success, whilst the number, the industry, and the morality of the priesthood, and the devotion of the people, have been manifestly increased by the total separation of the church from the State.” James Madison (Letter to Robert Walsh, Mar. 2, 1819).

    @Henri

    The establishment clause, it’s mentioned in the article so I”m not sure why you are confused. If you need further information you could look up multiple court cases spanning years or you could read the writings of Jefferson and Madison which they clearly indicate their intention of creating a separation between church and state.

    Would you be ok with that same sign if it said “Allah” instead of god?

    Ironically, the hair standing up on the back of her neck is and interesting example of of evolution and our ancestry.

    @socialism

    They got the most up votes…look at their time stamps. You can change the view to first post by switching it to “oldest” or “newest” if you like. Or next time you can try to refute their argument.

    I informed my employer this morning that I can no longer perform some of my duties because of my religious beliefs but must continue to pay me.
