Can't we just separate church and state for once? LOL

But back to 2016 big article on Yahoo...Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton discuss their views on Education. My guess is that's the way it will roll. Either way we lose, in my opinion.


So you would be FOR restrictions on free speech?

Just askin' . . . .


Free speech is a must, I'm just asking for a conservative leader that doesn't throw Christianity in my face. Does that exist?


I've seen Obama say religious things and Christian things and about praying and reading the Bible in several speeches. Is it the religion or is it the dislike of a conservative saying it?

Here's just one where he ends with praying that God bestow his blessings on you.

No, I mean that's fine. Saying you're going to pray or talking about a going to a church service is much different than tweeting a bible verse or quoting the old testament. There's quite a difference to me. I realize that Obama did it there, but there's a difference. Do you know what I mean? There is a lot more flaunting of Christianity by Conservatives and Republicans. To be fare, I know just as many democratic Christians as I do republican. Watching the news channels. CNN, MSNBC, FOX or any of them really, you would think that democrats can't be Christians!

For the record. not a democrat, not a Christian and not an Athiest.

Pay for email? Do idiots still do that? Hell, I get 10 free email addresses if I chose to use them with my crappy ass canadian internet. I would assume it's the same for ISP that provide for his office. Nowhere in any constitution I have ever read does it say that an official cannot hold and state their beliefs while in office.

See, I don't think there's a difference. We see a lot of "god talk" from the left when it suits them, be it talking about raising taxes or increase welfare spending or gun control. I've seen Obama quote Bible verses along with Nancy Pelosi and a lot of Democrat politicians as well. And don't forget the "reverend" Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson.

Okay, I may have to give you that one. Let me revise.

Can we just have a politician that doesn't throw Christianity into our faces all the time?

As long as they are for less government, less taxes, less spending, less gun control, etc, I don't care if they worship Satan.

I just don't see a threat there. Also, I don't think taxes pay for his free online social accounts so I guess he can be as religious as he wants on it.

This just seems like a case of somebody hearing something they don't want to therefore they try to demonize it. Christians and Atheists seem to be experts at doing this to each other.

Jesus wept. From laughter.

Anywho, I think the Dems would be thrilled if Scott Walker were handed the nomination in '016, he'd be one of the easiest to defeat. The atheist organization, on the other hand, has to lighten up and "come back" with another bible verse in response. This would make as much news while not portraying themselves as so touchy. I'll be surprised if Walker is elected governor again, which will knock out his presidential bid before it starts.




You must not be from Wisconsin. I am and he's doing a fine job here. The liberal press and universities in our state will try to show polls that its a neck and neck race for the governorship this year, but they tried that same move during the recall election two years ago and he crushed them. I don't believe any of their polls. Walker has done a lot for the state and has saved Wisconsin taxpayers a lot of money. Our state went from deficits to surplus. He'll easily win re-election.

I can understand why the FFRF would want the tweet removed but they're making a little too much outta it. I'm an atheist and I can't see any kind of threat here and have no idea what threat you can dig from that. While there is a fine line with respect to the establishment clause I don't think Walker crossed it. If he quoted the Dalai Lama this wouldn't be a big deal.

It is a code word for a MK ultra subject.

Be prepared folks.

Or he could have just had a rough day at the office.

Hell he could have been constipated on the crapper.

As a non believer of religion, who friggin cares? It's a social media post.

ETA: after rereading my post I just wanted to add that I didn't mean this is a disrespectful manner Flyerfan. It was more of a general sarcastic remark.

So there are religious quotes/images on our money, Government buildings, and in the documents that this country was built with and some of you believe this guy shouldn't be able to throw a Bible verse out there on Twitter? Come on people, time to worry about bigger problems.

This...seems really silly.

I am not a religious person in any sense but, I mean, come on. Who could possibly view that as a threat?

That is one of the most benign passages in the Bible and a group actually viewed that as threatening?

And it's his twitter. He can post whatever he wants. It's Twitter...TWITTER.

People get offended over everything today.

You know... I'm pretty close to an atheist I suppose. I'm not a Christian or follower of any organized religion. But it does make logical sense to me that something very powerful must have created this amazing universe around us. So I suppose that makes me not an atheist, but I'm damn close.

And yet, today's atheists drive me absolutely up the wall. Many of them have become so incredibly arrogant and condescending towards anyone that anyone might have faith in a divine being of their choice.

Guys, we get it. God doesn't exist and everyone who doesn't think the same is an idiot. Now please go have a tall glass of stfu.

SCOTT WALKER is a potential candidate for the GOP in 2016?!?!? "God" Help us. I'm from Wisconsin. This tool has no place anywhere near the White House. Well, I've hated the last two presidents so I suppose it would be par for the course. Although this guy would just do what he wants while giving everyone the finger as opposed to trying to be liked.

Has anyone noticed that the underlying argument against religious people always seems to be about intolerance? But whenever someone talks about their faith they get skewered? Paradoxical. Intolerance of intolerance?!!? Am I the only one who finds this confusing? So it's wrong to be intolerant, right? But we shouldn't tolerate intolerance, thus becoming intolerant. Therefore we don't tolerate ourselves because we are intolerant. Therefore everyone is intolerant and must not be tolerated.

I guess I'm in the group that doesn't like him making this tweet. I have no problem with him following any religion he wants, but when people basically shove their faith in everyones faces it makes me feel like they're also going to make policy based on their religious beliefs and that goes against what this nation stands for.

In the end though I'll discount this as him just wanting to rally the hardcore religious voting base.

How on Earth is a tweet "shoving their faith in everyone's faces"?

If you don't follow him on Twitter, had the morons that claimed this was a "threat" just kept their traps shut, you would likely have never heard about it. If anyone is shoving Scott Walker's faith in your face, it's the idiots in the "Freedom from Religion Foundation" (who apparently can't read -- in the US, you have a Constitutional right to freedom OF religion, not freedom from it.)

Scott Walker is a Christian and posted something on social media to people who are interested in what he has to say. Get over it.

If you are saying that people must be in a religion because they have freedom "of" religion and not freedom "from" religion, then I think you are just playing with words, because what would that even mean? Using freedom OF religion to choose Satanism would mean freedom FROM Christianity and using freedom OF religion to choose Christianity would mean freedom FROM Satanism.

As for the original post, everyone is free to have their own religious beliefs and to express their point of view. If they were using tax payer's money to preach or If they try to make their religion the government's law, then it's a problem because that would be a theocracy and not a democratic republic.
