What about the Jews, Jerry? They don't have freedom of religion? Or the Muslims, the Buddists, the Hindus or the Mormons?
What about the Atheists, Jerry, do they have any rights in this country? If they have to sit through your Catholic prayers shouldn't you have to sit through their speeches about how people should keep their invisible friends to themselves - it would only be fair.
Comrade Avis,

I have not problem with Jews or anyone else praying. As long as all prayer is on traditional lines and.

Athiests never had a tradition of prayer except until recently. and that is only because they see that prayer is acceptable in society and they phony up some just to try a act mainstream which they are not.

Comrade Avis, you forgot to ask about the Zulu faith, whatever it is. Now who is the one who is anti-religious?

Comrade,
The same way you promote socialized HC. It's called the Bill of Rights. Freedom of Religion is included. Not freedom from religion which extremists like you peddle. Your phobia of religion and God makes you pshycotic.

Actually Jerry, you are wrong as always. The constitution states that there is no establishment of a state religion. In other words, the state is NOT allowed to pick one religion over another. By allowing the mention of jesus, the state would be promoting one religion. That is a no-no. Mr. Mcall is not trying to keep anyone from practicing their religion. Nor is he trying to limit anyones freedom of speech. The freedom of speech amendment is to protect people from being prosecuted for something they say(particularly about the goverment). Mr. Mcall wasn't trying to have anyone arrested, he was trying to keep the state from violating the constitution. Of course you don't give a rats a s s about the contitution, as long as your extremist, right-wingnut beliefs are being served. Sorry Jerry, the constitution is for ALL Americans, not just nutty, religious freaks like you.

Oh, so your all for freedom of speech, as long as it's "traditional"? Hypocrite, nut-job.

As I said earlier, the US constitution is for ALL Americans. I know you and the other christian taliban members hate that, but you live in OUR country.

I neither "hate" nor "want to suppress" any tradition.

What I "hate" is when the ignorant (you) attempt to tell me which "tradition" I need to adhere to.
