You know damn well everyone would be in full agreement.
Um, ... what happened to separation of church and state?
The founders weren't even christian anyway
Lambert (2003) has examined the religious affiliations and beliefs of the Founders. Of the 55 delegates to the 1787 Constitutional Convention, 49 were Protestants, and three were Roman Catholics (C. Carroll, D. Carroll, and Fitzsimons). Among the Protestant delegates to the Constitutional Convention, 28 were Church of England (or Episcopalian, after the American Revolutionary War was won), eight were Presbyterians, seven were Congregationalists, two were Lutherans, two were Dutch Reformed, and two were Methodists. A few prominent Founding Fathers were anti-clerical Christians, such as Thomas Jefferson (who created the so-called "Jefferson Bible") and Benjamin Franklin. A few others (most notably Thomas Paine) were deists, or at least held beliefs very similar to those of deists.
Christians do not own this country - - - and non-Christians are fed up with them thinking they do.
Not being able to display a specific religion on government property is as it should be.
There is no reason to be political during this holiday season on a personal level. Everyone should just enjoy themselves whatever way they choose to celebrate - - or not.
I have had people try to make a big deal to me saying Merry Christmas and then making some comment like Christ is in Christmas.
The ad is beyond anti-gay, its anti-American. Rick Perry put this ad out the same day he stood in front of the Republican Jewish Coalition and said that “Israel shares our values” – the same Israel that has allowed openly gay service for 30 years now. . . . . This ad plays to the cheap seats, appeals to the absolute worst in people and is exactly what one would expect out of a desperate campaign entering its political end days.
Your stated opinions are very manipulative. Redirecting to fit your purpose.
I was raised Christian and yes as a whole they believe they "own" this country - - in that it should be governed by Christianity.
Christian idealism is common sense and has nothing to do with the religion itself. The philosophy in the 10 commandments came long before the time of "biblical Jesus".
All land is government property? Good one. No one is fooled by that statement - - when speaking of a specific religion sanctioned on government property.
