One nation under god?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
America is NOT and NEVER WAS a Christian nation. Get over yourselves. Here's the deal:

The nation was not founded in Christianity. It was more founded on pagan ideas. The pledge of allegiance did not contain the words "one nation under god". Those words were later added in 1954. America is the land of the free, not home of the enslaved by religion. We have the right to be a patriot without being religious. Religion is a personal thing, so stop trying to shove it down everyone's throats. And stop telling everyone who does not agree with you to leave America. If you have an issue with them, how about you leave and go somewhere where your personal views are supported elsewhere?

I am at home, where my freedom of speech shall not be infringed upon, where no government can tell me what to say, where I'm not dictated by a religious system that forces its beliefs upon me.

Oh wait,

Separation of church and state is a JOKE; gays can't get married, abortion is still illegal (yet the death penalty still exists) and god is still a thing in public schools.

Mind you, I understand things are progressing an getting better but one should never be forced to conform to another's ideals.

the founding fathers may not have been Christian per se, but like most men of the time, they did believe in God, so it would be safe to assume our nation had religous values back then and since most ppl here are Christian or religious affliated today, we still have a nation under God. no one is forcing you to convert, in fact i see more and more relgious freedoms taken away than the right to free speech.

No, not at all. Been here since the beginning of CM. I've watched the ignorance seed and grow. It's such a shame so many choose to argue then educate themselves.

 You must be new here. LOL

Roger Williams.  He left MA because he refused to become a Bishop in the church they started in the 1630's.

My ancestors, one of whom founded a state, were deists, not Christians.  So i agree.

No. We have a nation founded by some people who believed in a Christian deity.

That's all.

What religious freedoms are taken away? You can't worship in a your house of worship? You can't wear religious symbols? You can't marry a person because of your religion? You can't fly because of your religion? You can't vote because of your religion?
