No great problem if that law is passed. Better to believe in something than nothing at all is what I say.

This bill is just part of the control mechanism and nannystate currently being promoted by the conservatives.
Bow down to our agenda and we will give you stuff; like a worthless diploma and an "atta boy"....

The Arizona GOP is already backpedaling from this bill as fast as they can because they know it will be struck down in court and lose them support from Jews and other religions.

That's insane. Our country is founded on freedom of religion. Buddhists don't believe in "God" or a "Creator". There are millions of Buddhists. They are stepping on toes and judging others. They have no right to impose their will on everyone. If they do this, I hope they see why they suffer the same situation sometime in the future. What comes around goes around. You take away religious freedom and soon you will lose your own religious freedom.

You may not realize that Buddhists believe in many, many things. A creator God is not one of them. So they do believe in something - just not that. You have a problem with that? Don't you believe in freedom? What country do you live in? China?

Y'all are so worried about non-existent gun bans, non-existant threats to your constitutional rights, you are missing the REAL danger to the USA - religious idiots!

This is not some mealy-mothed little imagined slight or restriction on some constitutional right - this is an all out assault by christian fundamentalist, in hte guise of hte GOP, to turn american into a fundamentalist theocracy.

The obvious assalt is to the 1st Amendment, but how long befoer they start making proposals for real changes to teh 2nd?

the 2nd amendment follows a clause in the British Bill of Rights that gives PROTESTANTS the right to bear arms (as opposed to Catholics, what with the religious natuer or war & politics of the time)......I reckon it's a short hop for these guys to start proposing some religious restrictions for the 2nd too...

(Yes I know this could be in American political madness, but IMO it is also seriosuly conspiratorial - a well known conspiracy that no-one wants to talk about!)

Good, since our founding fathers education evolved around the King James Bible, now look at what we have? a bunch of godless moral decrepit indoctrinated ignoramus people trying to get their worthless piece of the pie because the vanity is so shallow nobody cares about anybody but themselves.

good on these "Republicans" partisan dote.
