You can ignore all you want, but the country was also founded with a belief in God.
AA wrote:You quote from the Pledge of Allegiance to prove that the country was meant to incorporate God? C'mon! The Pledge was written by a socialist hired to promote a kids' magazine. "Under God" wasn't added until 1954. It's 50 years old.
Our money has God on it too.
The pledge isn't the only thing that proves the point.
Do you want to get back to the original intent? Let's travel back to the constitution, huh?
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof . .
People are trying to change what this country was founded on, but it's not who you say it is. This country was founded upon the principles of justice, security, and liberty for each individual person.
And also the belief in God. Pretty amazing how you seem to overlook that fact.
Oh, and where or how has the country prevented you from worshipping as you please? Oh wait, it's just Christians that are having to deal with that injustice.

What makes you think I'd be offended if you put up the rules of Satanism on the wall of your classroom? Some of us are a bit more openminded than you are. I personally wouldn't be offended in the least, but that's part of accepting people for who they are and what they believe. Something you obviously are not able to do, and don't misunderstand, I'm not taking a shot at you, just saying what's obvious.

Where did I tell you to leave the country in this thread? Show me. I said people have the option of leaving (which is true), but where did I say that you should leave? Yet another pathetic attempt of yours to put words in my mouth, and quite frankly you're only making yourself look bad when you pull crap like this.
How about our last discussion where we disagreed? Did I tell you to leave the country in that one? Here's a reminder:
Minimum Wage Discussion
By golly, that's our last two disagreements, and in neither one of them I said you should leave the country.
You do realize how bad you make youself look when you tell blatant and boldface lies to try to make others look bad, don't you?
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
