Steward knows f*ck all about history. It’s only in the last 50 years or so that the concept ‘Separation of Church and State’ was twisted to mean the ‘Elimination of Religion’. JFK’s was the first Catholic president, and his opponents pandered heavily to anti-catholic bigotry in the election campagin. Although his speech was intended to lay to rest innuendo that he’d be taking orders from the Pope, it’s twisted today to mean that America today should be free from religion. That’s bullshit too. For example 1800 Congress authorized the use of the CAPITOL Building as a Church. And it was… Read more »

If you think church/state separation means “elimination of religion” then *you* don’t know anything about religion. Originally it wasn’t put there just to protect us from the evils of religion in politics, it was also created to protect churches from the influence of politics. Some people just need to understand that if you allow one religion to be favored in front of others, you open up an ugly can of worms that could some day force the current majority of Christians to be repressed by another dogma. When has theocracy ever been a positive thing? If you put the bible… Read more »

Correction: “Then you don’t know anything about *history*.”

Theocracy? Who the hell is arguing for a theocracy? Not I. Neither was I arguing for one form of religion to be foremost over others. Read what I wrote again. I agree with the concept of there being no “State Religion.”

Either you deliberately missed my point and are trying to distort what I wrote or you’re letting your own biases create meaning in my words that aren’t there.

Read it again.

Hiding what I wrote earlier is a typical example of how liberals react to facts and ideas they don’t like. I’m not surprised. Despite claiming to be open-minded your dogma always seeks to eliminate opposing views.

I expect the next response will be either more censorship or else name-calling.

You fear the truth.

How I know that there’s no such thing as a government drive to “eliminate” religion: athiest organizations still have to pay taxes.

Hamm172 should read a little less Xian propaganda and a little more history: Robert Aitken of Philadelphia was printing Bibles in America as early as 1771 and again in 1778 – and while he did some printing for Congress, this was his own business venture. On January 21, 1781, Aitken petitioned the Unites States Congress to authorize, and if possible even fund, the printing of a complete Bible in the English language of the King James Version. The reason was that the “King James Version” was technically under copyright of the British crown and Aitken wanted assurance that Congress wouldn’t… Read more »

Donation plates are funding. That’s where the donations go.

Chances are the heavily religious members of congress at the time gave a little or a lot.

Most schools do have the Koran in them. It’s printed in invisible ink and sits rolled up next to the toilets.

If JFK were alive and saw that a good portion of Americans (and others) got their political information and opinion from a stale comedian he’d probably shit his pants a lot more.
