    Wow, reading comprehension- Not! First, it was not ‘a few’ it was most of the evangelicals in town who were blasting ecumenism, and, from what I read on this board, nothing has changed. Judging other Christian churches, calling them ‘light’ and ‘social’ or even ‘cults’. For a religion that claims peace and brotherly love, I don’t see it now and I didn’t see it then. Second, did you read the part about how I don’t care who, how, or what you worship? Most of us other religions or non hard core Christians just want to be left alone to follow our own path, without the constant condemnation from the right, and without you trying to dictate our lives by banning things that you consider ‘sin’. Most of us consider the Constitution a higher law than your Bible and we’d like to keep it that way. But you keep pushing the ‘bring the country back to Christ’ crap and you expect us to just accept it and not push back. As I said, stop trying to save and convert us all, live your own lives and stop trying to dictate ours, and you’ll find that the militant atheists have a lot less support.

    Ok this is how I see it. I don’t care who, how, or what you worship. I used to be Christian, Episcopalian to be exact, quite involved in the ecumenical movement. Then the evangelical right started attacking ecumenism and none of it made sense anymore. I quit and was a long time without religion until I found Wicca. But the attitudes of the Christian right drove me away and keep me away. Look if you don’t like gay marriage don’t be in one. If you don’t like abortion don’t have one. If you dont like porn don’t watch it. If you don’t want to go to strip clubs, nude beaches, or swingers clubs don’t go. But stop trying to pass laws to stop others doing these things. There’s only a few crazed atheists that really want to eliminate Christianity but as long as you keep trying to force your narrow views on the rest of us, you are creating allies for the crazed and hurting your own cause.

    Yes and remember how the Christian right screamed about it and the public money involved. The Christian right is no better and no different than the militants atheists. They want things their way and their way only. Why can’t they just leave us alone to enjoy our sins and decadence and we’ll leave them alone?

    I did any and all religions that tell other people, not of their faith, how they should act or what their morals should be. Individual freedom trumps religion.

    BS. Sports is just another indoctrination method. Take one for the team, sacrifice for the team.5 are you one of us, and other such garbage. It’s designed to stifle independent thought and create another useless follower, sorry team member. Any kid who thought he was free to walk away from this idiocy will have learned, to their cost, just how free they weren’t.

    The problem is that they want this to be public and have everybody involved. They demand primacy of the public pulpit. How would this have been allowed if a couple of boys had wanted to to be initiated into Wicca on the field? Why must they demand that everybody share their beleifs and participate?

    Too many problems with this one. 1) Why would a high school team need a chaplain? That’s ridiculous. 2) Considering the state of education in the south, schools should not be wasting dollars on sports. Cancel all sports amd put the money into education. 3) Any boy who does not attend these so-called optional activities is going to sit on the bench, or get roughed up in practice, or otherwise be punished. That’s my problem with Christianity. They don’t believe in live and let live, and when they are called on this attitude, or people push back, they whine about being victims.

    More BS from the out of touch prude brigade. Go live in a monastery.

    “Christians do not bash others over the head for their lifestyle or beliefs. ” BS!!!!

    I see it on here all the time. People like Patty Henry, Maine Patriot, and Big Mick. Calls for outlawing, imprisoning, even executing gays and anyone else with what they consider to be a “sinful” lifestyle. All the people who want their
    Bible to supercede the constitution. Bashing non Christians is a way of life around here.

    You willing to extend that freedom to ALL religions, including those that you find abhorrent? If you are, I’m with you. Otherwise you are just a shill for the control freak Christians.

  • October 17, 2014 at 9:22am

    Yeah, I say again, freeloaders. Getting tax exemptions while providing no realistic benefit. And your claim that taxes already being paid should exempt them is bogus too. By that logic, I shouldn’t have to pay any taxes or fees to the government since I have already paid income tax on that money. Good luck with that. Flat tax, no exemptions.

  • [-1] October 17, 2014 at 8:51am

    Well, Patty, you certainly think you have the right to enforce your boring lifestyle. How about you live on your knees and the rest of us will live like free citizens.

  • [1] October 17, 2014 at 8:48am

    So Cruz is still pandering to the handwringing, sanctimonious “victims”. These people are useless. Thus is part of a court case, and subpoenas have been issued. Deal with it. Of course, the best solution is to eliminate all tax breaks and shelters for religious organisations. Flat tax, no exemptions for anybody. These churches, mosques, and synagogues have been hiding behind that religious exemption for too long. Talk about freeloaders.

    No, Christians are most certainly NOT willing to let atheists and non christians hold and display their beliefs. Witness the anti gay, anti abortion, anti free media, anti alternate life style, anti sex, rhetoric that we are subjected to every day, and the constant efforts to get their dogma and morality enshrined in law, to the detriment of non christians’ freedom. I don’t care how, who, or what you worship, but your holy book does not give you the right to dictate my life and morality.

    Why? Why shouldn’t atheists and other non Christians have the right to live by their standards, instead of being forced to accept yours? The 1st Amendment gives us the right to reject your religion and demands that ours gets the same respect. It is NOT an amendment for the protection of Christianity, it is an amendment to allow all of us to live by the creed we prefer, even if that twists your Christian knickers.

    I don’t want to a wall of separatio, I want a dog with razor strip and mines. I don’t care who, how, or what you worship. But your religion, whatever it is, doesn’t give you the right to dictate my life or morality. The same 1st A that gives you the right to worship, also gives the rest of us the right to gay marriage, abortion, hedonistic lifestyles, promiscuity, and all the other things you sanctimonious ones think are evil. Your holy book does not have the right to rule us. I don’t care what you think about the moral direction of this country. You don’t have the right to direct it and we won’t comply.

    No government, on ANY level, should be able to dictate morality.

  • [1] October 15, 2014 at 8:01am

    Good for the SC. When will you guys get it, that this is a secular country and individual freedom far outweighs your bronze age myths?

    jo- someday it will get through to you that not everyone in this world puts their brains in park when a baby appears. You have the right to go gaga over over children. I have the right to think they are noisy, smelly, encumbrances,

    No argument about that. I think the election cycles of this century have been totally disgusting on both sides. Issues don’t matter, they are just one string of attack ads after another. It’s not what I can do, it’s what dirt I can publish about you. But for one side to go ape about an attack ad while being quite ready to publish as many of theirs as they can get away with, is just the disgusting state of politics today. People don’t matter, just getting the party to win.

    BTW, I did see ads that were almost exactly as you said when Davis did her filibuster.
