    So you admit that you are against the First Amendment. That Amendment guarantees freedom of religion to Wiccans, or, as they are also known, witches. Nice to know you are anti Constitution.

    Conservative Christians do just as much to take freedom away from the people. They are the ones out there pushing laws and ordinances to outlaw behaviour that they consider sinful or bad for society. Why should they be the ones to choose? Freedom includes the right to be sinful, prideful, gluttonous, decadent or, libertine. Ah, but those go against your dogma, so apparently there is not as much freedom in Christ as you wish to believe.

    I don’t have a major problem with the general idea, but I wish they had picked another church. My reading of various articles over the years indicates that charities and food banks that are supported by the rightwing and evangelical churches generally want to proselytise along with their charity. I’d be happier with a food bank supported by a less fundamental church, like the Episcopalians or the Congregationalists that aren’t going insert a few tracts into the food basket.

    Yes. It just wasn’t so blatant back then. Now the corporations and unions openly hold legislators hostage. They don’t care who knows anymore.

    The whole concept of Schoolhouse Rock’s “How a bill gets passed” was trashed long ago. It died when we allowed lobbyists and money to take over government. Dems and Reps now do the bidding of their corporate masters. The people no longer are involved.

    Suppose it depends where you are. Street preachers in NYC and Boston are pretty in your face
    We get a lot of those missionary types at pagan festivals and outside pagan shops. Key West has a few of them, especially at Fantasy Fest.

    If you’d shut up and go away when somebody says they don’t want to hear it, things might be better but you dont. You keep pushing. I don’t care if you think my lifestyle or any body else’s is filled with sin. I don’t believe in sin so leave me and those like me alone. We are not going to accept your Christian society so live your life and let us live ours.

    Yeah, but now we’ll hear all the usual crap “i’ll never listen to them again” I’ll burn their CDs” and on and on.. Personally, country music sounds like the yowling of cats in heat. I’ll take Tull or Rick Wakeman any day. the music counts, not the people playing it.

    Quincy. If I decide to start preaching on I-95 during rush hour standing in the middle lane, am I exempt from laws about obstructing traffic because I’m preaching? The kid was breaking school rules about being obstructive and a distraction. Religion is irrelevant no different if he had been reading a comic book.

  • [-1] November 20, 2014 at 1:24pm

    Quincy. Where does the Constitution say that you can break any rule or law as long as you are preaching religion?

  • November 20, 2014 at 1:10pm

    So Rjj if I come to your garden club meeting and start quoting the Wiccan Bible and disrupting your meeting, I have the right because it’s religious freedom. Good to know.

  • [4] November 20, 2014 at 12:20pm

    No standing and spouting your mythology in the middle of someone else’s event is not disruptive. SARC. the kid needs to learn manners.

    Wisdom- there are churches on damn near every corner. You have the right to practice your religion openly. No church has been broken into and the congregation arrested. Nobody has been arrested for being Christian. There is no persecution in this country. If you consider that being asked to respect other the religions the way you demand respect, if you consider that having to follow the same rules as everyone else, and if you consider that just being a non-intrusive neighbor are all persecution, then you have a severe persecution complex.

  • [13] November 20, 2014 at 8:59am

    Yep, sameol sameol around here. It doesn’t matter if you break the law, if you are breaking it to spread Christianity. Try and get it through your heads. You are NOT special. The Constitution DOES supercede the Bible. Yes, the tax code sucks, but if I have to follow it, I’m going to do everything I can to make damn sure everyone does, INCLUDING RELIGIOUS ORGANISATIONS. (yes I used caps, figured I’d try the same tactics as the Christian posters)

    Yeah Reading and research and education are definitely ‘naughty’, at least according to the Christian conservatives. B&N has books that question the Bible, and promote religious understanding and diversity. I can understand why you think them evil.

  • [1] November 19, 2014 at 12:17pm

    Mooz why can you only think in terms of Christian
    , athiest, or Moslem? There are many other religions in the world. Wiccans like myself would never consider beheading anyone
    We just have different God’s and beliefs.

  • [-7] November 19, 2014 at 9:10am

    Exactly so. Christianity, as practiced by the right wingers on this site, is completely at odds with the freedom promised in the Constitution.

  • [-8] November 19, 2014 at 9:08am

    First Amendment gives me the right to believe in other Gods, to live my religion and to reject yours and all the stupidity associated with it. If you don’t like that, I suggest you move to a country comfortable with theocracy. Iran, or maybe ISIS.

    Doesn’t take much around here. You can guarantee that Billy Boy will be tossing red meat out for the uber evangelicals around here. And you can guarantee that they will line up to feed. I started coming here to get some libertarian news as Glenn said. Then I found out that libertarians are hated around here and this might as well be a church site. But it’s like watching a race for the crashes…
