    >Everything< that was religiously, "Branded" in their brain (as a child) is almost impossible to erase and they are really children in adults bodies who have attained a position of power that they think gives them the right to, "Dictate" their imaginary friend to everyone else who don't agree with that phony created fairytale,, or not at all.
    He needs to be replaced with, "An Adult" and sent back to his original religious indoctrination place of stupid where they can (hopefully) be slapped back to reality and the real world..

    He is the real adult, you are just a “Dick”, Richard.

    WFZ crossed the line in another thread, comes here to call names and be a force for evil.

    And yet, people like WFZ claim the moral high ground because they have the “correct” faith.

    Seems to me there was something in that holy book WFZ likes to wield as a weapon about knowing a person by their actions.

    Your move WFZ.

  4. There shouldn’t even be a prayer in my government. Religion should stay at your home. We all have different religions so not one can be incorporated in government. Churches need to pay taxes. They use the streets and everything states offer as any other business. State and Church separate. Anyone working in govt. should be fined if they put religion in their speeches. You can preach when you resign.

    On the Edge of Now,
    Our Founding Fathers never had it their minds for religion to be at one’s home, that is why the First Amendment says the “free exercise of religion” with no restriction as to where that happens.

    WFZ, the Founding Fathers had the good sense of mind to keep religion out of government and government out of religion

    Wrong about the First Amendment. It states . Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

    Doesn’ say anything about the exercise of religion with no restriction as to where that happens.

    If I want to pray for someone on a city Street or for the person next to me on a plane if they ask, or to pray over my food in a restaurant or a student sharing their faith with another student at school during breaks, or athletes leading a team prayer before a game. You are reading something into the Constitution that is not there.

  8. G

    Wrong WFZ, it is you who are reading something into the Constitution when it is not there and/or misinterpreting it.

  9. WFZ

    G,
    All those things I mentioned above before you answered are all protected under the Constitution.

  10. Grey One talks sass

    WFZ – yes, as a private citizen all the activities you listed are protected.

    How disingenuous of you because none of the situations provided are what the MRFF addresses every day on behalf of their clients. You couldn’t come up with anything not of a civilian nature?

    When a person enlists or is is drafted into the Military there is a stricter code of conduct. And Christian Nationalists are breaking that code with impunity. That is the topic, didn’t you do the reading assignment?

    So WFZ, why are you trying to start arguments about civilian culture on a military site?

    ** Disingenuous – adjective: not candid or sincere, typically by pretending that one knows less about something than one really does.

    No WTZ, they are not related because they are not stated so in the Constitution. Again the 1st Amendment states: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

    Funny how people like you are always trying to insert specific things in the Constitution while ignoring things that are stated in the Constitution.
