How can you expect to be taken seriously when you can't even use puntuation? You wrote six sentences before the first sign of a punctuation mark.
And although I enjoy wearing short sleeve shirts, I had no idea it was a constitutional right.
Oh, and BTW, freedom of religion means the right to worship -- or not worship -- any way you want. Why do you think the first English settlers came here to begin with? It was to escape the Church of England from forcing their believes on them.

What country? Narnia? Cos you sure as hell aren't talking about the real USA.

I need my civics lessons refreshed: what part of the US was founded on the Gospel of Jesus Christ?
religion was part of there [sic] education
The "establishment clause" in the First Amendment of the US constitution was put in there specifically to forbid what is done in England. I think maybe Kathryn needs her civics lessons refreshed, too. That, or move to England if she prefers their way.
how can we learn about Islam and Muslims but not Christianity
The US permits public schools to teach about religions, including Christianity. But that's not what fundies want. They want the schools to indoctrinate other peoples' children in Christian fundamentalism.
I think that is where the decline started when God was taken out of schools
God wasn't taken out of schools. Kids can still pray in school as long as government employees aren't leading the prayers. Does she honestly think the whole culture of a country is determined by whether or not a teacher (who may not even be a Christian) has the children mindlessly chant the Lord's Prayer for 30 seconds every morning in a classroom?

Change your screen name immediately! Neither Captain Janeway nor Chakotay would approve of such ignorance.

Heads up for our NarniaFan... States that include cultural studies in their social studies standards mandate that the basic beliefs of the major religions be taught--primarily these are Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. Christianity is NEVER omitted from these standards. No religion can be taught as revealed truth, better or more correct than the other, etc. And each religion must get equal coverage.
It is a lie that schools do not teach ABOUT religion. What they cannot do is proselytize.
More lyin' fer Jesus!

Czn God fix your atrocious grammar?

I stopped reading once I saw Gospel. Someone hid this girl over the head with Common Sense.

Wow, 7 posts before a "Treaty of Tripoli Bitch!"
You desperately need to learn grammar, punctuation, and American history something fierce. Freedom of religion was one of the primary aspects for the founding of the USA, as was the freedom of speech and right to bear arms.
Oh, and your ignorance is an insult to Narnia and Star Trek fans.

so this country was founded on the gospel,and we get to have bear arms? kickass bears are strong as hell,id love to smack a fundie across the face with my bear arms

she wants laws requiring everyone to join the Church of England?

"In 1776 our fathers endeavored to retire the gods from politics. They declared that "all governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed." This was a contradiction of the then political ideas of the world; it was, as many believed, an act of pure blasphemy a renunciation of the Deity. ...It was a notice to all churches and priests that thereafter mankind would govern and protect themselves. Politically it tore down every altar and denied the authority of every "sacred book" and appealed from the Providence of God to the Providence of man."

"This is one thing that burns me up this country was founded on the Gospel of Jesus Christ..."
Really? Why isn't God, Jesus, Christianity, the Bible nor the Ten Commandments mentioned in ANY of our founding documents?
9/29/2007 2:37:59 PM
you sound like a retard did you know that
Christ was humanist. (See Gospel of Thomas)
Founding Fathers were humanist. (See Declaration of Independence)
Constitution guarantees "life, liberty and pursuit of happiness".
Bible guarantees...um, guarantees...oi, where's the feckin Concordance at?
9/29/2007 3:14:15 PM
Are you reclaiming freedom of punctuation and spelling?. Moreover, since you quote the OT all the time, which Gospel are you quoting?, the one which goes as "Judge not lest you'd be judged"?

You've managed to squeeze an impressive amount of wrongness into so few words.

I demand you stop using Janeway's good name to promote a savage and hateful religion - or I am telling Tu'vok to open fire!

Your screenname is from one of the lamer incarnations of Star Trek.
You fail prematurely.
9/29/2007 8:01:31 PM
This country wasn't founded on any religious text damnit.
And for the last fluxing time, it's not 'freedom to bear arms', it's 'freedom to arm bears'! Get it right!XD
9/29/2007 8:46:19 PM
I think the decline for you started when you didn't read your American history books in middle school. FUNDIES STOP MAKING IDIOTS OF YOURSELVES AND READ THE DAMN CONSTITUTION. Or at least assume that others are intelligent enough to have read it and know that you are making shit up about it.
9/29/2007 8:50:31 PM
Two, four, six, eight, why can't you fucking punctuate?
Also, betraying yourself as a Voyager shipper makes you look unspeakably lame. Jeri Ryan was the only decent actress on that show and she was there to be the cheesecake.
