Well don't tell that to Russians, who did not abandon God, and were tortured in evil satantic ways and then genocided by Bolssheviks. That is why we say God, "Guns" and Country. People need to be able to protect themselves.

Hello everyone I'm new here and I'm interested in civilized discourse about our great nation
I do believe you are wrong about the great country/nation. As for belief in me it makes no difference as most of the christians are suedo christians.

It can never be said that a country "abandons God," since a belief in a Supreme Being is held by individuals and the only thing that can be said is that lots of people in a given country, even a majority, believe in a Supreme Being. In the U.S. The plethora of religious groups and houses of worship shows that a goodly amount of Americans believe in a Supreme Being, although they act on this belief in different ways and have different supplemental beliefs.

Like when they claim that God is not in schools..How do you stop an omnipresent being from not being somewhere when they want to?

They also insist that students "can't pray" in schools, which totally misrepresents the law. Students may pray as long as school personnel are not involved and they are not interfering with normal academic activities, i.e. no loud praying in the middle of an algebra test.

I am old enough to have been in school before the school-prayer decision. The teachers led us in the Lord's Prayer every morning, using the Protestant version, which caused confusion in church on Sunday. I had Jewish kids in my classes, including a good friend, and it was only when I became an adult that I realized that this prayer does not exist in Judaism. These kids must have been terribly confused, and it must have made it difficult for their parents to raise them in their faith.

Yeah, they used to make us pray we did the Baptist version..They prayed at sports events, school pep rallies and after sporting events. They even prayed for a lunch that was worth eating.

Welcome to party, Powell. Hans Gruber and his goons are up on the thirtieth floor. Ho, ho, ho let's hope you brought a "machine gun's" worth of wit and common sense.

First of all, welcome to the board. I hope you enjoy it.

Second of all, as for the "When a country abandons God, God then abandons the country", I am a bit confused. If devote Christians live in the USA, and pray to God, does he stop listening because of what others did? Is faith a personal and individual thing? Or must it be the whole country?
