The church was established back in ancient Rome but was frequently destroyed by those who believed it interfered in politicsOriginally Posted by chiefblackhammer
In my oppinion freedom of speech is one thing that I am all for aswell as freedom of religion but I am highly against confusion of the 2. You have a right to be who you are, say who you are and so forth but when you use this to support a political belief not everyone can follow b/c of these rights. Don't get me wrong I am definatly not saying that every one should be the same religion. I myself am I diest but nothing I believe is within there speeches and that does not bother me at all but the fact that I can not follow them b/c in my eyes what they believe is bullshit.Originally Posted by chiefblackhammer
This I agree with, one has the power to turn off the tv and such so yeah maybe I wrote that in a wrong wayOriginally Posted by chiefblackhammer
b/c it can be all around offensive, just like the thought that 2 guys kissing on tv is wrong and should be censored (but thats not the issue)Originally Posted by chiefblackhammer
Everyone wants thier side and oppinions noticed and turning to religion narrows the scope of who the world cares about, I mean in the eyes of those who are offended.
I am not against this entirly b/c I do not say the pledge I just stand, but as for the carvings you speak of, if thats the case, why not also have the pillars of islam and so forth.Originally Posted by chiefblackhammer
I highly appreciate you responding like this b/c I was looking for a debate. As for religion is everywhere, yes, but my statement is that it would be better if it wasen't in government. No one speaks of the constitution in church and/or prayer why is it okay for god and such to be in politicsOriginally Posted by chiefblackhammer
