Oh I am aware of that, I have my own petty beliefs, dont take offense.<quoted text>
Surprise Big D, that "petty little belief system" is all around, and to a certain degree, "forced on the rest of us". In God We Trust adorns our currency, the President is sworn into office with his hand on a Bible, cities are named after saints, sports teams have religious names, and on it goes. You should come down from the mountain more often, mix among the common folk.
Every president does so by a choice, that is their choice. I did notice when I was a jury Forman recently that all mention of it has been removed from the courts, only affirming they will tell the truth. I dont mind when your beliefs and rules of that belief is a choice, it is only when you try to apply your beliefs to others not of you belief that you are going to run into a brick wall.
I actually defend your right to believe this religion or that religion and I will help see to it that your children are not preached to from a position of authority by other religions as well.
I was never on the mountain so to speak, but many others that have been there for a long time are being shown the way down.
We are growing up, the time of Santa Claus is passing. It will take a long time, I know... but it is good to see it well started.
