Isn't it great how the religious feel authorized to define the lives of people they don't even know?
Besides, the angriest people I've ever met have had a Bible in one hand.

[Keeping this conversation on an adult level, ahem...] THERE IS NO FREEDOM FROM RELIGION: Our founding fathers wanted us to have the same freedoms that they practiced, such as quoting straight from the Bible in their hand, in sessions making our laws, over 15,000 reported times, and they were standing on government lands doing so! They opened and closed every session with prayers to God, and they were on government land as they prayed aloud! THIS IS NOT A FREEDOM FROM RELIGION! THERE IS NO FREEDOM FROM RELIGION, AND IF ANYONE IS OFFENDED, THEN TOLERANCE IS EXPECTED!
This seems to be true. I think many would be shocked if they read one of the Amendments of the Virginia Constitution:

"16. That religion, or the duty which we owe to our CREATOR, and the manner of discharging it, can be directed only by reason and conviction, not by force or violence; and therefore all men are equally entitled to the free exercise of religion, according to the dictates of conscience; and that it is the mutual duty of all to practice Christian forbearance, love, and charity, towards each other." - Virginia Bill of Rights, June 12, 1776

1. That all men are by nature equally free and independent, and have certain inherent rights, of which, when they enter into a state of society, they cannot, by any compact, deprive or divest their posterity; namely, the enjoyment of life and liberty, with the means of acquiring and possessing property, and pursuing and obtaining happiness and safety.

-Doesn't seem they took themselves or their proclamations very seriously, Virginia being a slave state and all.

If I was pissed off I wouldn't be laughing at your elementary attempts at trolling.

Why not respond to the topic for once instead of trying to insult me? You're just making yourself look even more stupid by acting like a 3rd grader.

I agree with you... to a degree.

It's my opinion that the issue of slavery being legal by law was a mixed issue for those in government back. I believe there were people who thought of it as "no problem!" and: those who knew it to be the criminal tyranny it truly was.

This goes for any issue even today, whether drugs, guns, prostitution, etc.- You'll have many [who believe in liberty] disagree with keeping these things illegal, yet also the fascists (sadly in the majority) who choose to keep them illegal.

Be sure to tell yourself that every time you look at "IN GOD WE TRUST" on the courthouse. You Godless liberals lost this fight, big time.

For now. The 'godless' are the fastest growing 'religious' group in america. Soon religion will be thrown into the dustbin of history.

Muslim...christian...same thing. Both of y'all worship the same bronze age goatherder god. Muslims are a little more backward these days but that's only because us sane people took power away from the Christians. Put them back in power like they were in the dark ages and they will be just as nasty as the Muslims.

Simpletons like you still run things in a hick town like Clinton - and look what kind of shape it's in! Your kids are all meth-addicted illiterate fools working for minimum wage down at some Eagle Bend sweat-shop like a bunch of Mexicans. Anderson County is practically a flthird world country! And it's the leadership of ignorant bible-thumping fools who got you there.

I'll tell you what your BIBLE has to say about it. It says BY THEIR FRUITS YOU SHALL KNOW THEM. I'd say that the sorry state of Anderson County is the 'fruit' of exactly the proud ignorance you're reveling in here. I know y'all feel all righteous and superior about that "in gawd we trust" while your meth-addled kids are going to heIl in a hand basket. What was it Jesus said about pointing out a splinter in you brothers eye when you got a plank in your own?

The founding fathers believed in God, the creator, not the god of The Bible (yes holy rollers, sorry to burst your bubble). They were Deists, for the most part, as am I. Deism is the belief that reason and observation of the natural world are sufficient to determine the existence of God, The Creator, not the god of the Bible, accompanied with the rejection of revelation and authority as a source of religious knowledge (thanks Wikipedia). how did evolution happen? by chance? Where did stuff come from? When we put "In God We Trust" on a building or on currency, we are not putting "In Jehovah We Trust" or "In Allah We Trust" or "In Buddha We Trust"
