There are two reasons, one the christian cult members try to force their beliefs on to every one and every thing in our society,

George Washington
1st U.S. President

"While we are zealously performing the duties of good citizens and soldiers, we certainly ought not to be inattentive to the higher duties of religion. To the distinguished character of Patriot, it should be our highest glory to add the more distinguished character of Christian."
--The Writings of Washington, pp. 342-343.
.
John Adams
2nd U.S. President and Signer of the Declaration of Independence

"Suppose a nation in some distant Region should take the Bible for their only law Book, and every member should regulate his conduct by the precepts there exhibited! Every member would be obliged in conscience, to temperance, frugality, and industry; to justice, kindness, and charity towards his fellow men; and to piety, love, and reverence toward Almighty God ... What a Eutopia, what a Paradise would this region be."
--Diary and Autobiography of John Adams, Vol. III, p. 9.
.
Thomas Jefferson
3rd U.S. President, Drafter and Signer of the Declaration of Independence

"God who gave us life gave us liberty. And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are of the Gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with His wrath? Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that His justice cannot sleep forever; That a revolution of the wheel of fortune, a change of situation, is among possible events; that it may become probable by Supernatural influence! The Almighty has no attribute which can take side with us in that event."
--Notes on the State of Virginia, Query XVIII, p. 237.

"I am a real Christian – that is to say, a disciple of the doctrines of Jesus Christ."
--The Writings of Thomas Jefferson, p. 385.

Just a couple for the Ignorant!

On the side...
Here's one from John Smith...
.
"honour is our lives ambition"

"Then seeing that we are not borne for our selves, but each to helpe other, and our abilities are much alike at the houre of our birth, and the minute of our death: Seeing our good deeds, or our badde, by faith in Christs merits, is all we have to carrie our soules to heaven, or hell: Seeing honour is our lives ambition; and our ambition after death, to have have an honorable memorie of our life: and seeing noe meanes wee would bee abated of the dignities and glories of our Predecessors; let us imitate their virtues to be worthily their successors".from the conclusion of Smith's A description of New England (1615;1:361)

God Blessed America, then we turned our back on Him...
With lies, hatred, anger, and debouchery!
Glory to God...!

<quoted text>My wife took a worlds religions course in college. However there is a difference in presenting the different religions to a college student and teaching the bible to young children.
The people pushing this have the agenda to teach the bible as fact and Christianity as the only true religion. They want to indoctrinate young minds with their idea's and beliefs.
If a class on worlds religions where to be properly taught in school there would be more children questioning the christian cult
Only if there were "cults of hate lessons" presented-like the KKK yewneeyon types (haters of other colors, the Jewish and Catholics, pretty much anything that wasn't "white and protestant", or other radical extreme hater and/or type psychotic harmful to other people type fringe groups that live outside the civil codes of society.
Anything that presents itself out of hate, is NOT good....but that would be a GOOD thing for children to recognize for certain!!

The above post is a good example of extremism, as it is illegal to burn or harm anyone or anyones elses anything, or to demand that people be burned at stakes.

Might want to try a nice, soothing cup of some herbal tea there instead of over-concerning yourself with the beliefs of others.

<quoted text> Its a shame they cant compromise. The history of religion is facinating, but u cant force religion down peoples throats. That is the definition of a cult. Its better to be open minded and u might find that u can learn something from them all.
May we never have an establishment of government that does try to do so. Just look at the messes in the middle east!

Pentagon leaders have suggested the possibility remains that no troops will stay in Afghanistan after 2014 should Karzai not agree to a deal granting immunity to U.S. troops from Afghan laws.
Obama supported those statements saying "it will not be possible for us to have any kind of U.S. troop presence post-2014" without such an agreement.
Which makes sense. The lawlessness of an eye for an eye of the craggy rock ages are so brutal, and inhumane.

The Truth of the GOOD word sets people free, not hypocricy.

Let those who are with OUT sin, cast the first stone.

"Freedom OF (OF!!!) religion" (NOT from). Get it right. Which means, yes we should as DECENT human beings, accept the FACT that OTHERS have beliefs that are NOT the same as what we as individuals may believe (or not believe).
So long as they are NOT harming others in any shape, fashion or form.

And we've already covereed the TONS of quotes of Founding fathers (many of which also mention SOME, not all. having thier own special seats IN their churches of preferred attenedance.

Kind of why there's a lot of the stuff scribed in various structures in DC too.

History is what it is, and there's NO changing the facts.

Find a quiet place and listen. It should be very quiet. The only sound you should hear is your heart beating. Listen. Peer deep down inside your heart. Do you see someone that holds a special place in your heart? Maybe they have always been there when you needed them; maybe they offered words of encouragement; taught you a lesson; comforted you when you were sick; praised you on your accomplishments. Make this their lucky day.You have the POWER to spread happiness today. A quick note or a kind word is all it takes to bring a smile and lasting memory to someone very special.

Calling people names is not a rebuttal to what I posted. You want to hang a shiny dildo around you neck go ahead and then show how blind and ignorant you are when historical evidence is presented.

KublaKhan rebuttal to your healing gifts claims using scriptural rebuttals and you're to brain washed to see that his understanding is supported by evidence that nothing supports what you preach today, yet you said he is without wisdom.
