I don't see how it matters a whole lot whether it is, or not...
It's clear in the Constitution that we're a secular nation.
In practice, we are not.
In practice, we are. Yes, we have references to God on the money and in the Pledge of Allegiance, but those are minor violations.
Greg camp said the 10 Commandments establishes a religion. They are posted in in every state. What religion does that establish greg?orlin sellers
Our laws, customs, and character are reflective of our people. Our people are 85% believers. Our laws are not reflective of a secular mindset. Blue laws (many of which are still on the books) are all about religious consideration. The fact that we don not have a government sanctioned religion does not mean religion does not guide our laws and actions.
Yes, Anonymous, but can you see that over time, we're moving more toward a secular understanding of the role of government? Even here in Arkansas, two counties recently threw out bans on sales of alcohol. And marriage equality is becomes the law of the land.
I guess 250 years (and counting) is not unreasonable for those who have been forced to live under religious laws. Right, you are a great defender of secular law. HA HA HA HA HA HA Now go beat someone up, since that is your law.
Anonymous, what are you going on about? We have improved over time. And in comparison to many nations, we've done a better job of maintaining religious liberty.You should work harder at your lying.
Right, 250 years and you are happy where we are at. Typical for a lying criminal coward who promotes death.
In a word, no. Why that matters to you, I have no idea.
I wonder about that, too, especially considering the tone that the posting takes.
Actually, I think there is quite a big part of the gun rights movement that's into things like "God, Guns and Family." Remember Fat White Man who used to comment here. He was a big Born Again Christian according to his blog. There are a lot like that.
Well since we are a secular nation that does not oppress the beliefs of the people then what is the big deal if some or even all of the citizens of the country are personally religious? Isn't that a protected right spelled out in the Constitution as well as the right to keep and bear arms?
Exactly, Anonymous. We should be free to believe in whatever religion or non-religion we choose, so long as we don't impose those beliefs on others.
Mikeb, I wonder what happened to Fat White Man, but have you noticed that your gun-rights commenters now don't generally take that position?
Like any other large group of voters they vote for those who agree with their religion and I'm stuck living under their laws. My rights are being violated. They are imposing their beliefs on me, through the law.
Anonymous, what specifically do you mean here?
I knew you were to stupid to get it. Thanks for proving it to everyone.
Anonymous, you didn't say anything to get. But thanks again for showing to everyone that you're the kind of arrogant asshole who can't be trusted to organize a trip to the store, much less making rules about how we all must live.
This from the criminal who said revenge is justice and it's OK to beat people up. These are what YOU want a civilized socity to live by. HA HA HA HA HA HA I really enjoy you proving yourself to be the criminal lying coward I say you are. Thanks.
"Mikeb, I wonder what happened to Fat White Man, but have you noticed that your gun-rights commenters now don't generally take that position?"I'll bet Truth be Told is another one. Who else denies evolution but the Christian extremists.
