    I would like for some of you religious people to explain to me WHY you can't teach your kids about YOUR religion at home/church. Why is it you feel the need to PREACH to people who don't want to be a part of your religion(if I want to I will just look for the closest building with a cross). Why do you think YOUR religion should be in the PUBLIC square?

    Why is it o.k. for you to try to FORCE your religious views on the rest of us through legislation?

    We only have two actual nutters (IMO) here.. Maybe you should direct this specifically to them, rather than lumping everyone else who isn't nearly as offensive together?

    Ring sure you can if you've got an opinion.

    Dis, I guess I am just interested in the extremists because they are the ones who don't seem to understand the seperation of Church and State.

    My religion? Which one is that and why do you think I am forcing it on anyone?
    Oh, I get it, you just want to bash, demean and disenfranchise Christians.
    It's called fanatical secularism.
    Have fun!

    Do you mean the first 200 years of legal precedent or the current one that ignored the first 200 years of legal precedent?

    As I have said on numerous occasions I respect people of FAITH and I DESPISE people who want to legislate their religious doctrines on the rest of us. If your faith is an intensely personal thing then why get on a soap box and force it on the rest of us? Didn't Jesus say something about preaching in the public square?

    Well, there you go.. You just proved my point - you're here simply or a fight.

    You aren't the first to post such a thread, you won't be the last, and likely most will just ignore you because you're really not interested in discussing it with them, but rather getting on your OWN soap box, and making your own demands about what should and what should not be.
