They are a bunch of barrel chested beer swilling loud mouthed uneducated baboons who break windows, tear up cars, and generally act like what their bible detests. In the name of their republican,'merican, blond haired, blue eyed, flag a'wavin', beer drinking, heterosexual g-string-high-five'n jesus of their own creation, according to their pick yer verse bible that they half way know.

These people can not be athiest. An athiest is somebody who does not believe in God or deities. A true athiest would not care if people are reading the bible at school or having a prayer at a public meeting because to them it is all just a ferry tale and has as much meaning as reading Harry Potter or conducting themselves as wizards. Since these so called athiest are against all religious activities, they would be better discribed Antichrist. An antichrist will seemingly provide for the needs of the people but deny the ultimate salvation.

And Monica, you really need to take a chill pill. How do know these reports are true or just a way for the Athiest Group (Antichrist) to further their agenda. I'm just saying!!!

Monica, it's about time someone stood up to these Lake City idiots who call themselves Christians. And Confused Status needs to look up the word athiest and how typical of those bible-thumping evangelicals to make such assinine assumptions. And while she's looking up the word athiest, perhaps she can look up the proper use of the word 'ferry'.

Believe me, Confused, that's one thing I'm NOT.(confused). I've lived here for 9 years now. I am a Veteran, which carries NO CLOUT when you don't agree with the "faux news" take on topics. I've seen cars destroyed in the afternoon across the street from the police dept & windows smashed out of office buildings for political signs, and the police said "take the bumper sticker off if you don't want trouble". I've seen old people with their yards tore up by truck tires because of yard signs. I know people invited OUT OF CHURCHES and treated DISGRACEFULLY for their POLITICAL BELIEFS. As long as you walk with the thugs, you can not know their mentality. You don't need to go over seas if you want to fight to defend freedom, it's not protected HERE.

If you do not like God, don't believe in him or just choose not to have a relationship, move out of God's Country. This is a Christian nation and leaving those values behind is why we have the current concerns. Again if you don't like it here, LEAVE. I don't care what you believe or don't believe, but our great nation was founded on Christian values. Do some real home work! There is no such thing as "separation of church and state". I hope and pray God finds a way to show you the truth. Your life will be much better. And for now, leave people who choose to pray alone.

Proud - you are proud of YOUR definition of MY country. You are exactly what this nation was NOT founded on. If you don't like my Countries Freedoms, YOU LEAVE. And the SO CALLED CHRISTIANS are NOT (as usual) The ONES under ATTACK HERE. And just as YOU PEOPLE DEFINE CHRIST according to your CULTURE & RELIGIOUS INTERPRETATION, you also manipulate EVERY SINGLE ENCOUNTER to ACT LIKE YOU are standing on the side of RIGHTEOUSNESS. You don't know the DIFFERENCE between being SOUTHERN - BEING BAPTIST - BEING AMERICAN - BEING REPUBLICAN (or - let me guess...libertarian)- or THE BIBLE. You don't know the difference between righteous and SELF RIGHTEOUS. I SERVED MY COUNTRY, DEFENDING EVERYONE'S FREEDOM, SO YOU GET OUT OF MY COUNTRY, TYRANT!

To Fed Up: I did look up the word Atheist before I posted and it is defined as "unbeliever in God or deities" and it you read my post that is exactly what I wrote. If you think you are an atheist, then maybe you should take a look at the definition. I give you credit for the word ferry, it should have been fairy.

To Monica: You do not have a lock on being a veteran. I spent 26 years in the Navy and my wife spent 20 years. Since you like to throw around your veterans status so much, I would venture to "guess" that you probably did not complete your first enlistment. When someone like yourself makes such extremely generalities about groups of people, you are never taken seriously.

BIG ISSUE?? "first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brotherís eye." "But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye?"
" 22Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity." self serving.

Thank goodness Monica has saw the light and changed her way of thinking from her first two post. She has taken the plank out her own eye and is now going to love her enenies rather then call them "a bunch of barrel chested beer swilling loud mouthed uneducated baboons who break windows, tear up cars, and generally act like what their bible detests. In the name of their republican,'merican, blond haired, blue eyed, flag a'wavin', beer drinking, heterosexual g-string-high-five'n jesus of their own creation." I will continue to pray for you Monica so that your coversion to a tolerant and loving person will continue. Amen!

You really need help. To be so angry, simply because people choose to pray. I don't go after you or your friends causing trouble for them in order to make them pray. So stop causing trouble for those that choose to pray. And again our country is a Christian nation and it is a nation that allows people to worship however they choose. To bad you can't see that the very thing you are fighting for will eventually take that right away from you also.

I don't know what happened to your faith. It is obvious you had some at some point in your life. But I will continue to hope and pray that you find your way back to God.

And again, I say to you that if you are so unhappy in this great nation, move. I bet you would come running back with a new perspective. God Bless You

Proud - did you READ the story? LINE ONE: A scheduled meeting between the leader of a Lake City-based atheist group and the Suwannee superintendent of schools was canceled for FEAR of VIOLENCE, according to Randy Lewis, director of Atheists of North Florida." What happened to my FAITH, dear sir, is that I am angry at people who use the name of the father to act how ever they want. They lie in the name of, kill in the name of, claim authority of their own opinions in the name of. The Prince of Peace is not represented by Bible toting thugs. We lead b EXAMPLE. This town - this whole region, is so pompous and full of it's self - it would run Jesus out of town! We are supposed to LEAD the LOST home, not THREATEN them because WE are so WEAK in our own faith. Your lack of anger perhaps should be examined. You notice, I never once said I am against PRAYER in school. You assumed it. I am against the corrupt turning souls away forever in this most important time.I am fed up with heathens raising heathens and acting like heathens all waving crosses. A lady told me recently,"If I didn't know Jesus BEFORE I came here, I SURE wouldn't want to, judging him by his local ambassadors." We have ONE job, brother - and supporting OUR culture through violence and calling it "Christian" SURE AINT IT. And PS - when you stand before the Lord - he will not be asking you "are you AMERICAN?" I'm done with this conversation. I pray for us all.

Monica: I find it interesting that you give so much credence to Randy Lewis, Director of the Atheists of North Florida, on his report that threats were made against his organization, which he could not and would not substantiate. You immediately jumped on his band wagon and began to condemn all Christians living in Lake City and Columbia County as Intolerant Red Necks. Who's really the intolerant one here? Who has the most to gain from lying about these supposed threats? Randy Lewis of course! Is Randy Lewis lying? I don't know, but I do know that not all Christians in the area are not "Bible Toting Thugs".
