This is an entirely dishonest post. Intelligent people do not object to anyone practicing any form of mythology they should choose. Most of us think it is stupid to build your lives around fiction, but no one would try to take away your right to do so.<quoted text>
Awww...what happened to that 'can't we all just get along' Wiggley? I think you'll find that your comment fits both sides of the issue.
Shall we beat this dead horse some more? Why not...I'm game this morning.
Once again...the constitution states that the government cannot establish a state religion. It further states that all citizens have the right to the free exercise of their chosen religion. It says nothing about freedom FROM religion or the right of any one individual (or the government, for that matter) to prevent another individual from the free exercise of their own religion or forcing that person to 'hide' their religion from view so they don't have to be 'exposed' to it.
The way you atheists go on an on about it, you'd think that people actually have the ability to force you to believe something against your will and all it takes is simply to come into contact with it. Are your minds and wills really that weak that you can't say, "meh...believe what you will, it's not for me" and move on?
It is when you start to make laws that interfere with our lives based on your particular fable that makes us whip out Amendment One and remind you that this behavior was a large part of what drove the American Revolution.
Indulge yourself in your delusions as much as you like. Just keep them out of our courtrooms, classrooms, bedrooms and women's wombs, and things will be as they should be.
