    They dont seem to get that religion isnt a game. its a way of life. Pretending to have faith is even more insultling than not having it. We aren't dumb. we can tell sincere people from serious people. you dont try to pretend to have such a faith because its just mocking those who really do.

    Not having faith is insulting? To whom?

    Perhaps you meant: pretending to have faith is even more insulting than belittling those that do.

    I misspoke. not having faith isnt insulting but its offensive to try to pretend to have faith and act like people are stupid if they dont blindly accept you when they can tell your insincerity. does that make any more sense?

    Sad thing is, some people will probably buy this.

    Lowry: "At a practical political level, the Democrats have a problem, given that secular voters and the only- mildly religious overwhelmingly belong to their party."

    Anything coming from the lib Democrats re religion has nothing to do with faith and everything to do with duping those they think are idiots to get the power back. Beware the wolf in sheep's clothing.

    Bingo. They don't practice religion to lead a better life for themselves and others, they practice religion to get votes. Disgusting.

    What I see as an even worse phenomena taking place is this notion that Dems/Libs who regularly denounces any type of religous overtones filtering into our government in any capacity has, since the last election shifted to a so- called more tolerant and open attitude towards religion, but really have only repackaged that to embrace secular humanism being passed off as morality and religion. They just don't embrace morality as religious people see, and to be that disengenuine to try and pass humanism off as religion is just another in the long line of smug slaps in the face.

    Well, Bonnie, you know that old saying "Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me." If people haven't caught on to the libs and religion by now, there's little hope that they ever will.
