Well hello. I think we need to slow down and have an understanding here. You said,,
You write about American Freedoms while at the same time you inject this:
Your quoting me when I said,,,
When I look at the world around me and see the pathetic waste and deep rooted hate for simply saying you believe in God.
I was expressing 2 separate thoughts there. # 1 Pathetic waste of life by the waste of trying to dominate a free soul/person in life by those who seek
power over all people. Governments, corporations and whoever is guilty of it.
# 2 - I can only speak from one side of a two sided coin, and that is as believer in a higher power. From my side it is becoming almost criminal to
say you believe in god. But just as important is the fact from your side of the coin you have every right to not believe. in essence you are allowed
the same freedom as me, right?
I don't care if your an atheist. Your freedom allows you to believe or dis-believe what you choose.
So to close on this issue. I have every right to say what my experience is, as a believer, without being pounced on don't I ? This has nothing to do
with Church and State. Or does it? The issue Church and State was to protect people from having to follow a religious structure dictated by the
Government over them. In this country it's headed that direction. The Government has a religion.
As far as you asking me,,,,
Do you wish to debate with atheists, or debate American freedoms?
I will debate whatever you want. I didn't start the thread for a debate on Atheism or American Freedoms. I started the thread because The American
Government is taking away the freedoms of the people that it has sworn to protect. That's a fact and there is no debate. By the way I never mentioned
a "Biblical God" did I ?
Nor did I say Atheists make me cringe. Is there anything I missed here?
Thanks for your opinions..
