I don't see any rights that have been lost. Point them out if you want. Otherwise I will assume that you don't know of any either and you are just all talk.
Oh, vieja, please, I love that you insist upon staying as oblivious as you are. Head up your ass, blissfully ignorant, smugly thinking that your precious status quo is firmly in place, doing nothing but twirping online....this is exactly where we want you. Thanks for your compliance, moros!

First, do you think all medical malpractice and workers compensation suits are legit? They aren't many are a scam.
Unlike you, I'm not inclined to strip all patients of our rights to sue a doctor for malpractice, on the basis that a few bad apples take advantage of the system. The small percentage of phony claims, is a small price to pay for everyone's ability to be legally compensated for a real one.

Now then, what changes would you suggest, and why?

Try as you might, you will never destroy anyone's religious rights.
Try as you might, you will not shove your religion down mine or any other persons throat. Your religion belongs in your tax free church not to be waved around and thrown in peoples faces. Not does it belong in public schools or influencing law.

My daughter was being taught religion in 6th grade in a public school. Needless to say the teacher and I had a very loud interesting discussion. He said "he believed" students should be exposed to religion and the good things it teaches. I told him in no uncertain terms that I did not want my daughter learning this crap, otherwise I would have sent her to a religious based school. I told him he had one of two choices, my daughter would be dismissed during the religious teaching or I would attend the class and I would be asking a million questions in front of the class. Then I had the same interesting discussion with the principal who was unaware that this was happening. Needless to say, that was the end of the religion lessons. I won, religion lost.

There is no reason that religious organizations should have any different financial status as any other non-profit. Who's taking away your religious rights, mama? Sorry, your megachurch will pay taxes, eventually. Tough for your rich hypocrite of a pastor, huh?
I don't have a mega church. We seat about two hundred.

My pastor makes about 30K a year. Probably a little high but he gives away much of it to needy parishoners. Maybe churches , religious schools, colleges, hospitals and homeless shelters should be taxed. Maybe religious charities, schools and hospitals should be supported by Catholics and be only for Catholics. Everyone else can go to what's left and pay for it.

<quoted text>So they haven't sued yet?
Aside from 'threats to sue', which don't actually constitute a lawsuit, many of the folks killed on 9/11 were not Christian.
Will their religious affiliations be recognized on the beam, as well as the Christian cross?
<quoted text>So the School District decided to do the responsible thing and admit that they couldn't win a lawsuit, thereby saving the School District the cost of exorbitant legal fees.
Where's the beef?
The chick posts this stuff, I use it to point out that religion will not stay privileged and uniquely tax exempt as it has been and she still denies that it's happening. She provided the damn evidence, for jesus sake!

Staying on this subject, not only are patients making false claims but the medical business is also filing false claims for reinbursement. They catch some.

The healthcare system is a mess and it is going to get worse with Obama handing a windfall to the insurance companies.

He had no right to teach anything other than the accepted curriculum. You were right and he should have been fired.

Nobody lost any rights here. He didn't have any.

That was not a group of Atheists in the school district lawsuit. It was a Humanist legal group. There are religious Humanists, you know, Witless.

You always manage to make everything about you. This crap you keep spewing about being a troll is just you being a coward. When you give an opinion and then get challenged your spine crumbles and you fall back on the 'i'm just a troll from under a bridge' shitola.
You flip flop around like a fish on a dock and then run away with a load in your pants.
K! LMAO

But seriously, your BP is probably really high, and you're risking a stroke. Calm down, have some tea (not Earl Grey, that's the expensive kind) have a hot tub .... oops, probably can only fit about 3 cups of water before you over flow it with your body mass. Ummmmm errrrrr shoot Chicks, can you rent a movie? Are you still able to get Beta tapes (my G-ma had a lot of those)

Dang, I can't think of anything that could calm you down. A nice warm glass of tap water? How about that? No clean glasses? Cup your big hands together, and enjoy!

She wasn't talking about civil rights, you know. She was talking about the priviledge that Christianity has enjoyed previously, which is should not have had in the first place.

oops, for Heaven's sake WASH YOUR HANDS before you use them for that. I'd hate to think of your dying of dysentery because you listened to me in that your hands could be used to help you drink water.

Once more for the stupid girl: The small amount of phony claims is a small price to pay for the ability to sue a doctor for malpractice as a result of a real claim. I'm sure if your knee surgeon cuts off your leg instead of inserting the replacement knee you were promised, you'd like to be able to get some compensation for that.
