    THE LAW IS THE LAW

    So, if the US government determines that it is against the law for the
    words "under God" to be on our money, then, sobeit.
    And if that same government decides that the "Ten Commandments" are
    not to be used in or on a government installation, then, sobeit.
    And since they already have prohibited any prayer in the schools, on
    which they deem their authority, then sobeit.
    I say, "sobeit," because I would like to be a law abiding US citizen.
    I say, "sobeit," because I would like to think that smarter people than
    I are in positions to make good decisions.
    I would like to think that those people have the American Publics'
    best interests at heart.

    BUT, YOU KNOW WHAT ELSE I'D LIKE?

    Since we can't pray to God, can't Trust in God and cannot Post His
    Commandments in Government buildings, I don't believe the Government and
    it's employees should participate in the Easter and Christmas
    celebrations which honor the God that our government is
    eliminating from many facets of American life.
    I'd like my mail delivered on Christmas, Good Friday, Thanksgiving &Easter. After all, it's just another day.
    I'd like the US Supreme Court to be in session on Christmas, Good Friday, Thanksgiving &Easter as well as Sundays. After all, it's just another day.
    I'd like the Senate and the House of representatives to not have to
    worry about getting home for the "Christmas Break." After all it's just
    another day.
    I'm thinking that a lot of my taxpayer dollars could be saved, if all
    government offices &services would work on Christmas, Good Friday &Easter.
    It shouldn't cost any overtime since those would be just like any other
    day of the week to a government that is trying to be "politically correct."
    In fact.... I think that our government should work on Sundays
    (Initially set aside for worshiping God...) because, after all, our
    government says that it should be just another day....
    Sobeit...........

    Nice post, but I gotta call you on the Thanksgiving thing. That's a completely secular holiday that celebrates the peace made between the Plymouth Rock colonists and the Iroquois (I think) Indians. That's a true American holiday. Other than that, it makes a really good point. If they insist on removing all the so-called 'negative' parts of God from government, why do they still have the positive. It seems they're having their cake and eating it, too...hypocrites.

    Oh, and I don't know if it was intentional, but 'sobeit' sounds and looks a lot like 'Soviet.'

    Actually, Lincoln's proclamation specifically mentions that the fourth Thursday in November be set aside as a day of giving thanks, not to the Pilgrims and Indoans, but to God. While it has been secularized, it was originally rooted in faith.

    And another thing... if we are going to erase God from our government, why should we continue to use phrases like "God Bless America?" After all, if we are going to officially ignore God, why should we expect that He won't ignore us?

    Oh but he Will! But while we're wiping out all "Christianity" from the American government, lets make damn sure we wipe out EVERYTHING ELSE religous. So the first time I hear a muslim call to prayer being broadcast over a loudspeaker, I'm going to blow the fucking speaker off said support with a couple of magnum loads of 12 gage double ott buck.

    Great post Pale!

    :thewave:


    So while all the government workers are working 7 days a week plus working all the holidays that us HORRID CHRISTIANS (sarcasm) are taking off for religious purposes, they can sit at the job and feel smug in their political correctness and governmental secularism. I just wonder how many people would drop out of government work? :D

    Regarding Thanksgiving Day, if they take it off, I only have one question: Just who exactly are they giving thanks to? :D

    Of course, we all know that people will demand their holidays and the government will just rename them. Already Christmas is being renamed to Winter Holiday. If the government can name our holidays and control them, the government has won. Welcome totalitarianism.

    There is only one thing that can stand between such a State and our freedom: God.
