remember that whole deal with the 10 commandments being removed in some southern state?
well personaly i could care less but find it funny that people bitch anyways, both sides.
"has the government abandoned god?" was one quote, listed on AOL.
well duh, and it cant be even in league with god, or zues, allaha, denaude-kess, shiva or any others. there is this thing called seperation of church and state, duh.
otherwise we would have ourselves a nice tali-ban like government (but oh wait, because it is CHRISTIAN it is alright.) yes i have heard that.
anyways what where your thoughts on that and other similar incident.
other things that crack me up are the "book lists"
these are books rated offensive by fundalmentalist groups.
books in ton ten are usally like "harry potter" and various pokemon and other childrens books.
what about new satan worship books, mien kampf, and books writen by the group call 'the church of christians' (a neo-nazi group with ties to domestic terrorism) infact i have seen them even recomend books from the church of christians(i hope its just cause they are ignorant of what that group is about).
so what do u feel about religipon in government.
flame away i guess

They made the 100% right decision to remove it as far as I’m concerned, and I couldn’t help laughing my ass off at the fools protesting outside.
And as for the USAs' Christian foundations, I don’t care if the US was founded by Jesus himself, saying Christianity is above corruption is just plain naïve.
What the Hell? Not all of our founding fathers were Christian. It was a good mix of Christians, Diests, Humanists, and Atheists. I know for a fact that Thomas Jefferson was a Diest, at least for a large portion of his life. And while he was a Christian, he wrote his own version of the Bible, changing many passages to how he thought it should read. Isn't that a little anti-church there?
I think the answer to all the separation of church and state issues is that whenever there is a question if something is endorsing Christianity, replace the word "God" with the word "Allah" and see how much people like it.
Ah yes, and Article VI of the Constitution:
The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the members of the several state legislatures, and all executive and judicial officers, both of the United States and of the several states, shall be bound by oath or affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.
