and atheists acted like the more vocal "This is a Christian Nation" people, were the majority, and tried to run rough-shod over everyone else the way the Religious Right is trying to do.
This is mostly for fun (it's been quiet here, lately), but also consider it food for thought.

They HAVE removed prayer from public schools. People protest the Ten Commandments being in front of court houses, or saying the words "under God" in our pledge of allegiance. Pretty soon they'll want it off all the money too. Like it or not, this country was founded by Puritans who fled religious persecution. If Christian beliefs bother you so much, even tho they are not imposing them on you in your daily lives, then well, you can always leave! As soon as people started pulling away from the basic values & morals, things started going down hill. Now we have Snookie! AGH!!! OK- you can DV me now- but I say this with my head held high & the Lord in my heart. :)

I could ask the same of you- if you are asked to appear in court & swear on a Bible- what would you do? The oath itself includes the words "So help me God". It's just been interwoven into our ways of doing things, b/c the founding father saw fit to do that it that way. They also saw to it that you have the freedom to practice or not practice your religion, but I find it very disturbing that this seems to be the only country that is made to feel ashamed or is attacked for it's basic Christian values. Like we should be worried about offending someone by saying Merry Christmas. Give me a break. Try walking down the street in Saudi Arabia w/ your shorts, a tank top & a pair of flip flops & no facial coverings- then talk to me about freedom of religion or freedom in general. God Bless America!
