    Aren’t you the people who champion the cause of employers being able to hire and fire at will, for any reason? Aren’t you the people who call for teachers to be fired when they say something you don’t like, or hold a second job you don’t approve of? You are hypocrites who only want people to do and say what you want. You are no better and no idfferent from the left that you scream about 24/7

    Individual freedom to live as you wish, with whomever, in whatever marriage or other arrangement you wish (assuming consenting adult humans), is always more important than religion or religious doctrine.

    No musicians on that list. Where are Jethro Tull, Emerson Lake and Palmer, and Rick Wakeman. REAL musicians.

    Good for him, that’s his belief and he is following it. I like this Pope. That said, not everyone believes the same thing, in this country, we have the right to believe differently. Abortion is between the mother, her doctor, and whatever Deity she reveres, or does not. It is not for any other person to get involved or to try and control her choice.

    Sorry Cavallo, I’ve never believed the enemy of my enemy is my friend. Just because they may share some ideas does not make them worth support. And I fail to see how people who champion laws regarding behavior and the restricting of rights and freedoms can be seen as in favor of small government. If the TP were what you say, then there should be much common cause with libertarians. Instead, the TP supporters on this site spend their time insulting and denigrating us.

    I wish that was the case Cavallo, but it is demonstrably not. The major TP candidates have been people like Santorum, Bachmann, and Perry. people who trumpet their religiosity at every opportunity. This does nothing but turn away people who would otherwise vote for the TP but want nothing to do with anything resembling the morality police.

    Patty Henry- YOU are the problem with the Tea Party. When the party divorces itself from the religious mumbo jumbo, when the party stands for real freedom, including religious and moral freedom, when it stops whining like a 3 year old about abortion, gay rights, and morality, it will become a viable party. We, the rest of the country, would love to see government shrunk, taxes reduced, and freedom restored. That not only includes freedom from progressive ideas, but it includes freedom from conservative Christian ideas. If the Tea party would dump the alliance with the Christian right and join with the libertarians, we’d stand a chance. Until then, YOU, and people like you, are the roadblock.

    I prefer freedom and liberty for all, regardless of what society may think. While I do beleive we have far too many laws and rules, most of which have nothing to to do with the only legitimate purpose of law, protecting person and property, it is sometimes necessary to follow up on constitutional rights to ensure that freedom comes first. School sports are the antithesis of free and independent thought. Group think and subsumption of personal freedom are the rule, in the idea that winning as a group is better than thinking as an individual. Just one of the many reasons that I wont support school sports.

    There is no harm in praying to a higher power. The harm comes from the fact that Christians, mostly of the conservative variety, think that they own the rights to the public pulpit and that they have appointed themselves the arbiters of what is good and bad in Society. If they would just accept that there are people who don’t care, don’t want to know, and are not going to accept their dogma and morality, most of this would go away. But as long as they keep up with the cr@p about this being a Christian country, and keep trying to reverse hard won freedoms, then the pushback, which they mis-name ‘a War on Christianity’, will continue.

    Social engineering is evil, whether left or right, religious or secular, Tea party or Marxist. Leave people alone to live however they hell they want. As long as they do not kill, injure, or financially injure any other person, it is none of government’s, religion’s, or society’s business.

    I’d love to, but it seems the conservative Christians are determined to impose their narrow minded, bronze age dogma and morality on the rest of us. I don’t care who, what, or how you worship. Have a good time. Just don’t try and pass laws that restrict me from being hedonistic, supporting gay rights, supporting Roe, or anything else that they want to do. In other words, stop trying to engineer society. Let everybody live however they wish, without interference. Pray for yourself, don’t try to get others involved. Don’t try and impose morality that the majority don’t want. Don’t constantly be telling us that if we don’t conform to your particular religious belief, we will suffer for eternity because that’s BS. There is no war on Christianity, there is just a pushback that says we don’t care about your religion and refuse to go along.

    Well, if you want a really honest answer, I’d prefer that schools stop wasting money on interschool sports, which do nothing to advance the GPA of the so called athletes. But I would like to see a guarantee, in writing and enforced, that students who refuse to participate in these prayer circles will not be penalised in any way, shape, or form

  • [2] August 13, 2014 at 10:57am

    I’m not an atheist, but I do support their aims. I don’t hate Christianity or religion. On the other hand, I will not put up with being made to accept the morality of a religion that I don not believe in. How about you practice your own religion and live according to your dogma and morals, and recognise that the rest of us have the Constitutionally guaranteed right to do the same? Stop try to recruit or change the rest of us.

    Biohazard- what about live and let live towards people who are not Christian and want nothing to do with your religion, dogma, or morals? You talk about atheists spending a lot of time fighting against the Christian religion, but how much time and effort do conservative Christians spend trying to push their agenda on those of us who don’t believe? Lets add up the time and money spent fighting Roe, fighting gay rights, pushing dress codes, trying to close down businesses, and generally fighting to have their morality enshrined in law, whether the rest of us believe it or not. I don’t think there’s any doubt who spends more time and money on their cause.

    Anyone can pray, there are no laws against it. when it becomes a problem is when teachers, coaches, public officials, etc. use the power of their office to forcibly involve other people in those prayers. It’s a football team and the coach has ultimate power. Do you think any student athlete is going be able to say, ‘No, coach, I won’t pray’ and still be on the team? Coercion, whether overt by threat, or by peer pressure is a very bad thing. You tlak about freedom of religion, what what about the freedom of the non Christians, atheists and other religions, to be free from Christian proselytising? You people want a one way street with no rights for people who reject Christianity.

    If, as has been said, this is a small town, a business that pays taxes and brings money into the local economy is more likely to be welcome than a church that pays no taxes and does not contribute to the town coffers.

  • August 11, 2014 at 8:03pm

    Do you understand the difference between legal and illegal?

  • August 11, 2014 at 7:47pm

    No, it is the motto of freedom loving people. If you have the freedom to go to church and be pious, we have the right to go to strip clubs and be hedonistic. What you are proposing is theocracy. Perhaps you might feel more at home in the new ISIS. BTW, not everybody believes in sin and the devil.

  • [1] August 9, 2014 at 11:27am

    I will answer yes. Illegal should be reserved for things that actually, physically or financially hurt individuals. Rape, theft, assault, fraud, etc. Most of the the laws we have having nothing to do with such things and are there for the sole purpose of societal engineering. Societal engineering is wrong, IMNSHO opinion. Freedom of the individual is more important than keeping the neighbors feeling happy and content.

    Wild- I’ll give you two out of three. Illegal, no. But Society and religion have no right to tell people how to live and no one should be subject to their maunderings.
