“Listening to politicians say 'God Bless America' sounds so childish. It's like they're saying 'I wonder what Santa will bring me.'”

    THAT’S WHAT I SAY GOD BLESS AMERICA. IF HE DON,T WHO WILL? MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR.

  2. tech Says:

    Also we need more politicians in office who believe in the Almighty God. The world certainly would be a much better run place for sure.It has gone down hill since they took prayer and God out of the school system.

    “It has gone down hill since they took prayer and God out of the school system”. – not really. It is a commonly known fact that teenage birth rates are higher in your ‘religious’ states.

    Here in the UK we have nearly seperated politics from the church and are much better off for it. Besides, wasn’t the US founded on secular principals?

    From the first amendment:
    “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.”

    That is of course if you’re a free thinking none religious person living in the US. If you are a religious person who believes the bible to be a book written by god and not man then you have the “except for” clause to the US Constitution. That clause 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.” “Except for us…”

    The Taliban are all very sincere believers in God, Tech. Belief in God DOES NOT correlate with moral behavior. For the record, there is only a single overtly non-believing member of Congress. Also, nobody took prayer out of the schools. Any child may pray to any imaginary thing they like. What WAS done, however, was make it so that people like you can’t FORCE my child to pray along with the class. You didn’t get a single thing right in your post.

  6. Chris Says:

    P.S. Atheists are a very underrepresented minority in prison. If religion necessarily leads to better morals, how could it possibly be that the people that commit the least crimes are the least religious?

  7. tech Says:

    Chris my child for someone who doesn’t believe in God you spend a lot of time trying to prove he doesn’t exist. Also the God I believe in is not the same God you refer to in your post. Crime is not based on how good a person is or if he believes in God or not. People commit crime for many reasons.They poor, hungry or want things for nothing.They start young in with the wrong crowd. What ever.

  8. Chris Says:

    OHHHH! It’s not the same God. Well, that clears things up. By that reasoning, isn’t it odd then that atheists start off with much greater economic circumstances? It’s as though we’re blessed by a deity that thinks groveling is beneath our dignity and so rewards our skepticism. I think I just started a new religion!

    For someone that said they were done with this site, you spend a lot of time here proclaiming your love for a raping-murdering deity.

    “Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him.”
    “But all the women children, that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves.” Numbers 31, 17-18.

  9. Holysmokes Says:

    Do you have a single shred of credible evidence to indicate that he does exist? If so, you would be the first in history.

  10. Holysmokes Says:

    Say Chris, can I join your new religion? How big of a percentage must I give? lol

  11. tech Says:

    Let me try and clear things up a little boys.To some the devil is a god.Some others, money is their god.Oh there,re lots of gods.But only one Almighty God.

  12. PEB Says:

    Clear as mud as always tech.

  13. tech Says:

    THANK YOU

  14. Holysmokes Says:

    Soooo, no evidence Tech?

  15. solomon Says:

    Dear Holysmokes,
    Theres a lot of evidence around you that prooves god exists.Your eyes is not blind but it is blinded by your heart.Your heart deny to wonder who creates everything around you.Even tons of evidence still won’t inflict just a slice of your heart to even wonder,how come all these wonderfull creations just pop up by itself.Look at your fingers and of others.Who determine there should be 5 fingers in one hand.Why there should be not more or less than that?That is only one simple example.You don’t even try to think.You just speaks out without knowledge but just following your misguided thoughts.
