Does Seperation of Church And State mean ANYTHING to you people?

Well, at least this one admits that the Constitution doesn't claim we're a Christian Nation.

Yea, unfortunately, that's not going to happen. And as far as the omnipotent creator of the universe creating his most important rules go, the 10 commandments are pretty fucking weak anyway.

Go here

http://www.usconstitution.net/const.html

And try to find "God", "Jesus", "Supreme Being", "creator", or any other reference to a supernatural entity. You can't do it. There is no mention of your god. This is *not* a Christian nation.

While we are on the constitution, here is what the framers wanted the president to say on entering office, "I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States." Notice how "god" is missing.

Mudak isn't claiming that America is a Christian nation, but that it should be. Even though there are a lot of redundant statements in US law about this being a secular nation, down to the Treaty of Tripoli which specifically states "The United States is not a Christian nation."

10 Commandments should be displayed on every building.

But isn't having them displayed on a brothel or strip club a little blasphemous?

Until the Constitutional Amendment that solidifies Christianity as the religion of the land is passed

A.K.A. never as it conflicts with the very first amendment in the Bill of Rights. And BTW, most of the supporters of freedom of religion are Christians; Christians who aren't whacked out zealots and understand that freedom of religion protects everyone, including Christians.

I'm ok with other "religions" posting their commandments

What's with the quotes? Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, etc. are all just as much religions as Christianity. In fact, you'd be surprised by how similar they are to each other, especially the Abrahamic religions.

but they shouldn't be given a big spotlight

Okay, I'm fine with that. So long as Christianity isn't given a big spot light either. But I'm willing to bet that's not what you're asking for, but rather are asking for Christianity to get a giant spotlight and everyone else should sit on the side, am I right? In which case: go fuck yourself.

Hey buddy, what about that thing where the founding fathers wanted to AVOID having a nation with an official state religion, because they just left one that did?

This is what home schooling does to people.

I see this as a sign of progress. His beliefs are nuts but at least he realizes that they won't be allowed unless something dramtically changes. Baby steps forward, at least keep taking baby steps forward.

How about we post the Rules of the Earth and the Satanic Sins, instead -- it would be much more productive. Not to mention, far more humane, than posting Christianity's farce of a list.

Separation of Church and State and FIRST Amendment. Look for another country.

This one just doesn't make sense. He talks about how Christianity should be the law of the land, and yet all other faiths apparently are. Okay, I dare you to find me the Wiccan Rede on one government building.

@WMDKitty

I agree. Firstly, I would be able to hear all the fundies eyes popping out of their heads nationwide, then because they're well thought out and written ideas and rules.

I bet the Founding Fathers had this on their minds when they made a laic constitution... Pffft.

10 Commandments should be displayed on every building.

You are entitled to your opinion. However, I don't want them on my house, and I don't want them on any buildings paid for with my tax dollars. You lose.

Until the Constitutional Amendment that solidifies Christianity as the religion of the land is passed

So you're admitting that there's nothing in the US Constitution that gives Christianity special treatment?

Check your history, Shortstack. Such amendments have been tried repeatedly throughout American history.

Hell, some of the founding fathers fought unsuccessfully to have pro-Christian text included in the constitution.

I'm ok with other "religions" posting their commandments, but they shouldn't be given a big spotlight

Then why do you expect those other religions to accept your commandments on their buildings?

Nice use of scare quotes, by the way. Very "witty".

Only if I can post the FSM's 8 I'd Really Rather You Didn'ts next to it. Heck, they are far more practical and realistic anyway.

If the ten commandments are so damn important, why are only two of them the law of the land?

I'm pretty sure coveting isn't a crime.

"Until the Constitutional Amendment that solidifies Christianity as the religion of the land..."

Yeah good luck with that.

All religions have equal rights except MY religion has MORE equal rights.

Great. I'll be glad to see The Satanic 10 Commandments displayed everywhere, which are actually closer to the truth of how you ass hats really behave.

Only in America! Religious mania seems rife there, both from what I see here and from what I saw on the ground there.

So everyone should have equal rights, just as along as I don't disagree with it? Nice double standard.

No. Learn to read. Come back after you have done it.

You're only saying that because you want the freedom to rejoice and holler in a mad frenzy, and without any restrictions to your merciless zeal whatsoever, leaping and screeching round the slowly roasting body of a still living person who has been accused of witchcraft or who doesn't believe in God. Now do you see why we find that you are ever so tasteless and somewhat dangerous imbeciles? Ditto your deranged God.

Like Frank Zappa said, "It can't happen here."

I vote Jewish.
