Not surprised. Typical Christian behavioured when they don't get their way.

True. Even though Jesus himself operated on the basis of free agency,some christians take it personally when you do not agree with their belief-path and they treat you like an enemy of their god. And when they act out such as the unidentified caller they believe they are doing so in the name of their lord.And this justifies that in their mind.

Keep these bibles out of public schools. The separation of church and state was purposely put in the constitution by the non-christian framers. Deism was that era's way to say non-believer.

Well, I disagree.Schools, public and private should make all books available equally without furthering any certain religion. Religion is a personal choice. It is no more right to censor learning than it is for one to ram his or her beliefs down another's throat.

As for the separation of church and state, well, that was actually set up to prevent the state from dictating which religion you as a citizen decide to practice.

As for Deism,I don't know that much but in my belief path we are taught that deists believe in a god but choose to do so outside of an organized religion.

Don't think I am taking up for the christians because I'm not. After all, Christianity is one of if not the bloodiest religion(s) in the world.

It doesn't even begin to surprise me that some fool made threatening phone calls sad but all too true.

I know. People like that seem to only see the world through the keyhole of their belief path. If they would just open wide the door......

They walk among us. What can I say?
