Nice.
If you care to rebut, feel free to tell the class what Jesus ACTUALLY meant by that pronouncement.
I'll wait.
Simple, He meant treat others in your daily life as you would like to be treated. This concept isn't have to understand.

Are you talking about the Vikings with their pagan beliefs? What religion where the Mongols following?
The record says that most of the hurt and atrosities committed by groups of people on others had nothing to do with religion.
Paganism is a religion - The Pledge doesn't recognize it, but it still counts as one.
The Mongols were highly tolerant of most religions, and typically sponsored several at the same time. At the time of Genghis Khan in the 13th century, virtually every religion had found converts, from Buddhism to Christianity and Manichaeanism to Islam. To avoid strife, Genghis Khan set up an institution that ensured complete religious freedom, though he himself was a shamanist.

'Christian' is the only one of the above, which the Pledge of Allegiance recognizes.

Do you think Jesus spent all his time on earth whining about the horrid things the Jews and their ancestors did to their neighbors? I don't think so. He spent his time teaching love of neighbors in the present and the future.
I think I asked a specific question: What did Jesus ACTUALLY mean by "Do unto others as you would have others do unto you."?

And I also think you know if you answer this, you'll admit to being as much a tool as the idiots to whom I originally posed it.

This is the biggest problem you folks have with the Bill of Rights: in no word, phrase, or sentence, does it EVER mention the right to remain un-offended.

Sorry about your luck.

Incorporating the dogma, sentiments, and tenets of ANY religion into a democratic government or emblazoning same upon its currency, is not simply 'offensive'- it is illegal.

you're full of shit. had you recited the full pledge with others and then kept your mouth shut for those two words only, nothing of the sort would have happened.
As a matter of fact, that's precisely what I did. However, had I stood up loud and proud, and said what I REALLY thought, which is "I don't believe in this imaginary God", I certainly would have been at least 'disciplined'...as I worked in the buckle of the Bible Belt at the time.

And yesterday, I had a high-colonic enema....so your first assertion is also incorrect.

I don't recommend this treatment in your case, as you would undoubtedly implode and disappear...

oh, what the hell - give it a go. The more I think about it, the more I like that idea!

You are fighting a two hundred and fifty year old tradition. Faith and God have always been a part of the United States of America. I think you will just have to continue to be offended.

That isn't the case. "Under God" doesn't refer to any one religion.

Welcome to my world, Ink.

Your inane and illogical questions, and your literal-minded responses to any type of nuance in the conversation, have consistently failed to lend anything of substance to any discussion, in which you have tried to participate.

One would imagine you get tired of asking 'why don't I understand this' over, and over, and over, and over again...especially when you insist on ignoring the answer.

Once more: you don't understand what pro-choice folks post, because your brain is a tiny black and white box, with no room in it for any original thought processes, or deviation from what you were taught by the fundamentalist folks with whom you identify.

I know that was a lot of words. Should keep you busy all day.

Have fun!!

See, this is what I mean by 'inane' in describing your 'additions to the conversation'. Nearly all other religions refer to their Deities by name - not as 'God'. You know this very well. Yet you continue to insist that 'God' should be included in a recitation intended as a patriotic affirmation in a secular democracy.... and that 'God' should be featured on United States currency.

I still say that if 'God' is mentioned, we should name every Deity out there, as they are all represented in our citizenry - and frankly, I don't think many of us could haul currency that size around.

Of course, what I really say, is that 'God' has no place on United States currency, or in the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag which represents ALL citizens...not just those who worship ANY god.

But of course, you 'don't understand this'.

*sigh*

Maybe, but that's because its not the proper time and place for discussion and that's simply rude. I wouldn't have given my Muslims friends a Bible at their wedding for the same reason. Its called respecting others. Its not that hard. You can do as others do and be respectful at the proper times and hold discussion at proper times.

People saying the Pledge aren't doing so to invite discussion. You sound like someone constantly turned on sexually and can't behave properly, just have a little self control when you're out in public!

Despite what you learned from "mandingo", you could not kill a slave with impunity. There were laws concerning that. If one died during punishment, there would still be an inquiry. Many times, they were ruled accidental, just like when a prisoner dies while in custody today.

And, again for the slow-witted, murder cannot be legal. Your pissiness doesn't change the meaning of the word.

fine. there was also a time when slave owners could kill their property during the course of "punishment" with legal impunity. does that mean it wasn't murder because it was legal?
