    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.

    Just like the “Christians” on the Blaze.

    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?

    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.

    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.

    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…

    The Declaration references a “Creator”. It does not specifically refer to the Christian god or any other. For me, as a polytheist pagan, that can just as easily refer to Hern, Lord of the Forests and the Hunt or The Star Goddess. That is the big mistake you all make. You want it to refer to your particular Deity, so you act as if it is. You demand respect for your God and dogma, while denying it to everyone else’s.

  • [6] November 17, 2014 at 5:17pm

    kd- I say that the basics of freedom come from a shared belief in humanity and are not from any Deity, yours or mine. Those things which are proscribed- lying, cheating, assaulting, stealing and killing- are pretty much universal and predate Judeo Christianity and are found in ancient and modern cultures that never heard of Judeo Christianity. Rules and commandments beyond these basics are from a bronze age, tribal, patrimonial society in a harsh desert environment, and are integral to that society. They are no longer valid in an educated, 21st century society. We recognise many and varied freedoms that would be inimical to that tribal society. To restrict these freedoms would be to deny the progress we have made over the centuries.

    Excellent, and I fully agree with Tyrion. Ideally, that would be the best solution, open to all. However, when you get groups like this, who insist on spreading the Christian message, they demand their freedom of religion, but are more than prepared to deny it to all non Christian, and even Christians that they don’t consider Christian enough. Christianity doesn’t bother me, most Christians don’t bother me, but the hard Conservative Christians that insist that the rest of us live in a country bound by their views of sin, morality, and propriety are a real problem and an insult to personal freedom.

    I’m not even going to consider any of their suggestions ‘healthy’ until the eliminate GMO foods from this. But that wiil never happen in this country because the same government that wants to control our eating habits is being paid off by Monsanto to keep GMO food in the pipeline. Europe is way ahead of the US in this.

    As far as the obesity epidemic is concerned, I blame the schools and the parents for not letting the kids run and play anymore. Recess is near to non existant and when it is allowed, games like tag are banned as being unsafe. Parents have become so paranoid over nothing that they won’t let their kids out to play and run anymore, they’d rather they were safe inside with a screen in front of them. We ate all the same foods that are being villified now as unhealthy but we weren’t overweight. We ran, played in the streets and fields, climbed trees, waded in the streams, got dirty and fell down and grazed knees. We were just fine.

  • [1] November 17, 2014 at 9:59am

    As a taxpayer, I have a right to demand that the food we provide to the kids will actually be something that they will eat and not just pass over their plate on the way to the garbage. It is NOT government or society’s mandate to determine what people should or should not eat. I’d rather see kids enjoy what they eat rather than turn their nose up as this so called healthy crap.
