    Western civilization is founded upon the moral rules of conduct deriving from our Greek philosophical and Judeo-Christian religious traditions. Atheistic and agnostic liberal-socialists are moral free riders who benefit from living in a society ordered by the morality of spiritual religion, while sneering at spiritual religion and moral codes as simple-minded ignorance. At best, they do nothing to contribute to social order. Too many of them do everything in their power to discredit or to destroy the very source of social order. Without Judeo-Christian morality, they would be in the position of scientists and scholars in Nazi Germany or Soviet Russia: working under orders for the collectivized National State.

    There's nothing "Judeo" about Western Civilization, my friend. A Congressman once sat on the dais. He remarked, something about our Christian heritage. His aide tugged on his jacket sleeve and said, "Congressman, don't you mean Judeo-Christian?"

    The Congressman cooly replied, "I meant what I said."

    Booyah!

    So, by your logic, anyone who is not Jewish or Christian is morally equivalent to a decadent and morally bankrupt Nazi or communist party aparatchik. I truly can't believe you mean that. But if you do, you have my profound sympathy. I have met many in this world who follow other religious paths, or even none at all, and who are as good and decent as any I have ever met. If you truly mean what you said, I would suggest you go back and read your scripture with an open heart and mind.

    You're overstating, bully, he's just saying secular zealots really do not understand the degree to which our society has been structured and made successful by this foundation.

    All I meant is that liberal groups such as the ACLU are destroying a society that gave them a chance to come into being.

    Why then did the ACLU take up a case in Stafford County,Virginia. Members of the Cornerstone Baptist Church were barred from performing baptisms at the Falmouth Waterside Park.

    The ACLU threatened a lawsuit on behalf of Cornerstone Baptist to open the park to the baptisms. Officials decided to permit baptisms in public parks.

    For the full text, go here:

    Your perspective has been clouded by the nonsense some in the religious community spout about the ACLU being "anti-christian". Don't be afraid to learn something new which might contradict those views.

    A needle in a haystack of communistic nihilism.

    Then that's what YC should have said rather than equating atheists and agnostics with Nazis and communists. So, why don't you let YC speak for themselves.

    No...You're simply unwilling to consider anything which might contradict your views. If you had the courage of your convictions you would visit the ACLU website and look at the work they do to protect religious freedoms.
