    Exactly! What’s good for the goose, is good for the gander.

    All of that worry of the thereat of “human sacrifice” by satanists and witches has been proven by the FBI to be a complete myth. No evidence ever found. False. Most missing minors are runaways and strict Christian households have some of the highest runaway rates in America.

    Clearly y’all miss the point that Christians constant pushing to insert their mythology into public schools caused this situation. Why not call a truce and all just back the heck away from children. Why are Christians so fixated on early indoctrination? Is it fear that a more developed and reasoning individual will be unlikely to accept the superstitious unscientific approaches to life and existence?

    I send short texts all the time while driving with Siri. I have a dash-mounted bracket that holds the phone and reading the display is no more distracting than looking at the gauges or radio display.

    When radio was first introduced in auto, many city councils tried to ban them for the same reason people over react to mobile communications technology. The tech will adapt faster than laws will.

    If you look at all the instances where the protesting atheist has become publicly known, you will find they are always the targets of threats and persecution by the dear sweet Christians.

    There is no court in America where “So help me God” is required in civil or criminal cases for swearing in witnesses. There should not be for any civil process.
    Keep God at Church.

    The preacher is an fine example of the #1 reason churches are fading from America and headed into obscurity and cultural irrelevance. The dichotomy between where our society stands on these sorts of issues and the untenable position of some Churches simply drives people out of the pews and into the ranks of the Nones! Among under 30 Americans there is overwhelming support for a complete spectrum of gay civil rights and equality. That includes broad unequivocal backing for marriage inclusion for same sex couples. 20% of all Americans have no religion, 35% of college aged citizens are Nones. Only about 30% of Americans devoutly follow a religion, occasionally attend services and adhere to biblical precepts. We, the Nones, are in the majority, the ungodly churchless bunch and increasingly so. 40% of births are out of wedlock, barely half of us are living in married households and fully 30% of Millennial are projected to never marry.

    Religion as a moral guide, Marriage as a necessary life stage, and rigid sexual role definitions, these 20th century holdover principals will be looked upon like the prudishness of Victorian England in a few decades, as antiquated, out of touch, lacking contemporary relevance.

    A very small percentage of colonists came to the New World for religious freedom. By the time the Pilgrims show up and devolve into puritans, the Virginia colony was already established and shipping tobacco back to England. When Puritans tried to settle in Virgina they were rejected and fled north, when they tried to aline with Bacon in 1676 they were again repulsed. You suffer from the mythical colonial history that in Massachusetts-centric and very biased.

    The myth that America is a “Christian nation” is not only untrue, but promotes the pernicious idea that non-Christians are second-class citizens.

    The point is creeping Christian influence, big or small, must all be challenged in order to intellectually consistent. Crosses are fine on helmets at Oral Roberts U., not at a state school. No offense is so minor as to be ignorable. Every inappropriate placement of religious iconography has to be protested or the merit of all protests are weakened.

    ZQ, “want a cross on their helmets” Wrong, not “their” hemet!
    The issue is that the helmets in question are not the property of the players but are the property of the school, paid for by the funds of the taxpayer supported public, secular university. The administration is well within its rights to control the images displayed on their property. About 20% of this nation’s population holds no fealty to your christian icons.

    There is no atheist religion. While I don’t speak for all Nones, my personal position is that I’m not superstitious. You religion, any godhead religion, is nothing more than superstitions based on the myths and legends of ancient nomadic tribes. Your sacred texts anthologize so many varied myths from other cultures, awareness of that alone should make you a unbeliever.

    Come join the Nones, we are the future.

    This is exactly why the fastest growing beer segment is Craft beers, the locally made relatively small production of Sam Adams, Abita, Dogfish Head and the hundred or so other great real beers being made right here in the USA by small local brewers.

    Atheists oppose all religious iconography appearing in public venues unless balanced with other viewpoints such as an Atheist counter display. Example you can have a Christmas tree but you can not disallow a Festivus tree in the same area or a season Freethinker’s statement.

    It has been determined by the SCOTUS that Freedom of Religion includes Freedom FROM Religion too. That is what we strive for. A public spaces where no inappropriate icons appear.

    It’s likely your daughter’s REAL education from a Christian college will only be worth an MRS degree. Most are low-standards diploma mills.

    If you think Lifeway polls a representative population sample, you are certainly delusional.

    E Pluribus Unum was first, E pluribus unum was considered motto until 1956 when Congress passed House Joint Resolution 396 adopting “In God We Trust” as the official motto. The Star Spangled banner was not even the national anthem until 1931. And we could use a new one too!

    I will be 62 in 3 days, I have never said the Pledge. I faked it in elementary school and as an adult I just avoid any situation where they do it. I don’t bow my head when you pray either. My father, his father and my great-grandfather were all Freethinkers, an early designation for atheists and my father was greatly offended by this as they came from Sweden to avoid State Churches. Under God offends me every time I hear it mentioned, it would have offend Thom Jefferson for sure and the reason behind it is just silly away

    First of all wait staff in NYC and Chicago were unionized in the 1940-50s, unions created the middle class and fast-food jobs are no loner entry level after school jobs for 17 year olds. The average age of a fast food worker is 27. In Australia, where their dollar is worth right about the same as ours, the minimum wage is $15.95 and a Big Mac costs just about the same as it does in Cleveland.

    Fact is a major minimum wage increase would be a giant stimulus to the economy and the boost we need.
