Quote# 21221

I wish we could just take all the athiests and put them in camps and ovens, I really do. The Founding Fathers (who all worshiped Jesus) never promised freedom from religion -- they simply wanted to make sure that Evangelical Christians like myself were free to pray in schools. Unfortunately the Supreme Court insists on that and on killing babies.

I love you, too. But I think you got something incorrect, though. Freedom of religion includes freedom from religion.

You're a Nazi.

You probably don't think there's anything wrong with what you just said, but the Nazis didn't think they were doing anything wrong either.

Your grandchildren will be ashamed of you.

Seriously, how do these people see anything similar between the religion preached by Jesus and what they claim to follow?

Sincerely serious question

You know that little voice in the back of your head that tells you to kill them all because they must be planning something against you?

We've got pills for that, but they're told its \"jesus whispering the way to heaven\" to them by others with the same affliction.

wrong wrong wrong. The founding fathers were at the very least firm secularists, and many of them where likely agnostic or atheist.

would you consider atheists better people if we had a religion, such as Hinduism? You can't deny that the constitution protects our right to follow that.

Why is it that so many Christians are obsessed with making everything like themselves? No blacks, no gays, no atheists, no women, the only thing that counts as a person is a white Christian straight man... unless he's the wrong type of Christian, that is.

This reads like satire, especially the \"they just wanted us to be free to pray in schools\" part.

Evangelical Christians are free to pray in schools, subject to the school's attendance policy. When has anyone said you can't pray in a school? They just can't use the school building, which is paid for by everyone, to conduct organized religious services or expect school employees, who are paid by everyone, to conduct them.

Besides, evangelical Christians don't really want school prayer for their own kids - they could pray all they want before school, on the way to school, at lunch, between classes, etc. - what they want is to make everyone else's kids pray, because they think everyone else is the spawn of Satan who needs fundie help in raising their kids.

To quote that great philosopher Joey Tribiani from Friends: \"You haven't gone over the line, you aren't even close to the line. You're so far away, the line is a dot to you.\"

Christianity caused nazism.

I'm sure Jesus would approve of your plan to imprison and then roast other human beings. You biblical types should remember that there is also a passage that reads 'Judge not, lest ye be judged.' Just a thought.

Revisionist history.

Pssst! The most influential of the Founding Fathers were Deists.

I think it's both fascinating and frightening that I know more about American history than some of the people that live there.

Are fundies ignorant of US history, or cynically convinced everyone else is? Does lying through stupidity still violate the 9th Commandment? Hello! Dumbasses! Benjamin Franklin was agnostic! Washington, Jefferson, Monroe, and Madison were Diests (modern day Unitarian Church, which you fundies consider pagans). Thomas Paine was an atheist. A lie told to further your fundie religio-political agenda is still a lie. God doesn't like liars. Remember #9 Jimbo.

Freedom of Religion means you can believe in any religion and in any way... including NOT believing in any of them.

Going by your logic, the Freedom of Speech means we MUST listen to what everyone says... since it doesn't say Freedom from Speech.

Actually they wanted to ensure that no religion would be able to tyranize the rest of the nation...like you so desperately want to do. I think the Founding Fathers, even the ones who worshiped Jesus, would be happy that their efforts are still hindering the likes of you from establishing your theocracy.

Tell you what, if your sky fairy god has a problem with me not believing in him, let him throw me in the oven himself.

As feedom of religion in the US-- go read some history books before you make yourself look like an idiot again.

Historical revisionism at its worst.

I wonder what James Rourke thinks of the Holocaust: God's punishment to the Jews for killing Jesus 1900 years earlier?
