Seriously, I'd allow my 2nd grader to do as their conscience dictates. I believe the Great Spirit is Jesus, personally..
Somehow, I doubt those parents whose Native children were rounded up and 're-educated' in white-man's schools, would agree with you on this one. The Cheyenne, Sioux, Arapaho, Iroquoix, etc., never heard of 'Jesus' before the Jesuits arrived here, and they did very well without him. Native religions involve worship of, and communication with, the spirits of every living thing with which the person comes in contact - and most of the entities which 'Christians' perceive as 'non-living, as well. "Jesus" is pretty far from being a Native American deity.

Bull. But if you must be picayune, how bout we require public school children to pledge allegiance to a flag which flies over a 'Nation under Buddha', or a 'Nation under Shiva,''Siddhartha,' or 'Bodhisatva'?

Or how about 'Ra'?

Enough with the examples. Having read your hypocritical responses to my previous inquiries in this vein, I can only conclude that you would immediately pull your child from the offending school, or protest vehemently to the school board that your religious rights were being abridged, in such a case.

And you wonder why non-religious folks are up in arms about religion in government.

Someone who worships an invisible sky-daddy he can't prove exists really shouldn't be calling others out for "drinking the kool-aid." Capische, paisano?

You're only voicing the coll-aid you've been taught, you don't know me. And I doubt you really know many good Christians at all. That's why your political group can so successfully brainwash you; you have to get out there and see for yourself.
I have heard blessed yule,while shopping at WalMart. And knowing it was a well-intentioned greeting, I responded with a smile and a wave in return.
You are obviously judging me without knowing me; the hallmark of bigotry!

Left out the response to the last part of yours...

Question: Did the fact that the Pledge and the currency did NOT reflect any religious sentiments, before 1954 / 1956, mean that Christians were being 'silenced' by the absence of same?

Take your time. This one may require a skoche of thought on your part.

I'll wait.

Yep, I am free to share my opinion, just like you.
Share your OPINION all you care to....but, in the words of Eric Shultz,

"Who the fuck are you to turn your views into my laws???"

Pardon my (and Eric's) French.

As for 'standing up for my right to disagree with you,' you've so far done a very substandard job, what with accusing me of quaffing Kool-Aid, and what-not.

None of my assertions have indicated a desire on my part to be free from disagreement with anyone...just from legislation which requires me to submit to the doctrine or sentiments of a religion to which I don't subscribe.

That was sixty years ago. What other gains have the religious right made?
Benjamin Franklin suggested to the continental congress that they all go home and 'pray' when they couldn't agree on the constitution. How has that hurt you?
Our history is full of religion or at least a faith in God. How has that hurt you? I think their beliefs have given us the greatest country on earth.
I'm quite certain that the folks who were here for a thousand years, before the Founders wrote the Declaration and the Constitution, found their civilizations and their respective Nations quite great as well.

But theirs don't matter now, since 'Christians' usurped their lands, insisted on their submission to Christianity, and exterminated them from the French and Indian wars to the Trail of Tears.

And just for the record, religion, and those who supposedly follow it, has been the primary organ of 'hurt' in the world, since the first caveman sacrificed his neighbor's baby to a volcano.

Its notable that you chose to argue the person and not the issue. It says a lot; even you really know better somewhere in your immoral soul.

I'm as much a citizen as Eric and/or you, and so are all the other religious people, that's who!

You people are the ones, which your post makes so obvious, trying to marginalize other American citizens out of the political process

If my vote wins over your vote; its only because more citizens voted my way.

Whine about it all you wish; but its not whether one's religious or not that wins any elections, etc., its about how much of the population in a free democratic society also agrees.

Eric, apparently chose to whine, cause he lost out on something, Boo-Hoo! Learn about democracy and learn to get your voice heard, that works much better than whining.

Those folks who lived here a thousand years ago were busy killing each other. Some were busy cutting out people's hearts and eating them.

Some like all groups of people were wonderful people and we could've and did learn a lot from them. Many learned a lot from us and became Christians of their own choosing.

Others threw my ancestors babies against brick walls, scalped, and tortured settlers who did them no harm.

They were a warring culture, we warred with them and WON! So go pout some about it; it won't change anything.

Were you on one side and I on the other and you threatened the life of my family or me, you bet I'd have fought you to the death, too. Don't like it, don't throw people's babies against brick walls or come in the night to light their homes ablaze!

Not so; the primary organ of hurt in the world are human beings!

Many people have been slaughtered by atheists as well. Did you forget Mao or Lenin? Did you forget the Romans? People hurt people, and people fight back.

You hate religion, so its convenient for you to only take note of religion. Its not the religions, they teach kindness, love, and forgiveness. Its bad people using the NAME of RELIGION. They have to to motivate otherwise good and moral people to fight and kill!

Its the same with the atheistic socialists, who make religion evil, to make it look moral to attack and kill them. You are drinking their cool-aid and one day it won't surprise me if you are one of the number that justifies murdering innocent religious people. It always starts with planting such hogwash in people's minds.

How bout not stealing the land from them in the first place?? If the shoe was on the other foot, you don't think you'd have done whatever it took to get the usurpers off that land?

White technology was superior - but white motives were ulterior.

Neither makes the extermination of the Natives any more 'moral' or 'justified' than our own extermination would have been.

And your nattering has become a colossal bore.

Enjoy your night.

Just as they stole the land. Sorry, they were no different in that. Maybe if they weren't so busy killing and eating each others hearts, they could've took some time for learning and developing technology?
They earned their manhood by killing other human beings, they were no better than those they lost to.
But, that was hundreds of years ago. No one today is responsible on either side. All people can do today is whine about the winners. Boo-Hoo!
A fine example of Christian compassion.

Given this sort of interpretation of 'Do unto others', I'm sure your 'Jesus' is very proud of you.

I would be fine if the currency had Caesar on it; but it reflecting the heritage of most of the people who fought and died for this country is also perfectly fine and only immature idiots could find it offensive.
Immature people always need something to fuss about, rather than live among us all with respect.
There hasn't been a Caesar for a thousand years either. I'd definitely have a problem with that likeness, on the currency of a country the Caesars never heard of.

I would be fine if the currency reflected nothing other than the acronym 'USA', a denomination, and a value. Only an immature narcissist would find that offensive.

You've been fussing about the persecution of Christians since you arrived here - and to that I reply, that the dissolution of the legal ability to persecute others, is not equal to the persecution of you.

When you respect the people among which you live, enough to cease attempting to deny them rights you feel you have, then we can discuss this intelligently. Until then, your braying about religious persecution of Christians, is worthy only of contempt.

Nor does someone behaving like you need it anymore than the moneychangers in the temple. Jesus wasn't a doormat, sorry to have to inform you. And neither am I.
You misapply the verse, obviously for your own idiotic intentions.
Really. Well then, sage, tell the class what Jesus ACTUALLY meant by "Do unto others as you would have others do unto you."

I'm all ears.
