You sure do sceptic. Your daddy is a donkey and your mommy was a pole dancer.

Bear in mind? Your own "holy" book CONDEMNS public prayers-- your Jesus was definitely AGAINST such behavior.
Here: Matthew 6, 1-7, words of your own Jesus

All religion needs to kept out of the public schools, and no parochial school should be allowed to graduate a student who can't match or surpass the academic standards of the public school systems.
As for public places, fund the forum by yourself, or keep your superstition out of it.
..No..I'm not okay ..with a Muslim , Jehovah witness , Wiccan ,Atheist ,Scientologist .....or..a Catholic trying to convert someones child ....

The real standard should "be" no public school, should be allowed to graduate a child ...who can not match, the academic standards of a graduating parochial student ...

(..but, then only Orientals would graduate ...)

The Swiss have traditionally been neutral in war, for as much as they have been able to be.
(they haven't always been--but they do try)
That's one reason why Swiss Banks are so popular-- their currency has more or less remained above the ups & downs of wartime.
Lately, though, that traditional independence from it all, has been under attack, and their previously "secret" banking has had to back down, in the face of world wide criminal organizations making use of their neutrality, to sequester their ill-gotten gains.
Alas, we cannot seem to apply that same method against the *legalized* criminals, otherwise known as politicians...

And everyone of these pimps, child molesters, etc. no doubt justifies their actions{at least in their own mind}. So do you really think they are evil or just really awfully screwed up? If one was really evil wouldn't they be doing these things in the name of evil?

Evolution "is" not so testable ; as no one will/can say ..Who are our (homo-sapiens) direct ancestors ...Hmmmm..??

People are not stupid ..everything true and good ..is kept and passed down to posterity ...i.e. The writing of Plato , Aristotle , Confucius , Hindu vedas ,Buddha ,Jewish Prophets and Jesus ..( I consider Mohammad a plagiarist ,so don't count him .)

Where are the prayers to Jupiter or Odin ...Hmmmm..??

Praying and reciting scripture, are not really marketable skills, even when your best employment opportunities are Mickey D's and Wally World.

Jesus was a Rabbi, and a teacher, he taught in public. He prayed in private, yet still was caught out a few times "prayin" .....'forgive them father for they know not what they do', and one or two more like that.

So you think that you and Jesus should have the same rules? How original. Maybe he meant that "no public praying" for his myth-book followers. You for instance. You are male, Jewish and a virgin?

We the people are. We the religitard are not. You can't display the ten commandments, unless you, give equal public space to the Vodun, the Hindu, the Muslim, the Wiccan, the Scientologist, etc.

Actually? It's not magic: his parents had sex--like mine did-- and 9 months later? Birth.

Just like it's been for more than 15,000 years of humanity on earth.

Just like it'll be for the next 15,000 years-- most of which won't include your insanity: religion.

Who knows? But that ain't dirt you ignorant fool.

Likely it was in ocean-- slightly salty water saturated with protanecous pre-cursors to DNA.

Science has already demonstrated time and again that if you put the base chemicals-- chemicals found in comets-- if you put the base chemicals into slightly salty water, you get DNA out the other end.

All of whom find a home believing in your bible: slavery? Bible-approved. Rape? Bible-approved. Child-molesters? Bible-approved (judging by the number of child molesters who are also Priests/Preachers...)

So yeah... I agree.

Nope-- you've never been to an actual Jewish service, have you?

Obviously you have never been...

Here-- let me repost what you DID NOT READ THE FIRST TIME (or ever, apparently)

Here: Matthew 6, 1-7, words of your own Jesus. Pay close attention to verses 5 and 6.

YOUR JESUS COMMANDS YOU TO PRAY IN SECRET--NEVER IN PUBLIC.

__________

Matthew 6 King James Version (KJV)

1 Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven.

2 Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

3 But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth:

4 That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.

5 And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.

7 But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.

I don't.

I would eliminate all private banking in a heartbeat, and turn it all public-- open-source, open information for all to see.

THEN?

We can prove beyond a doubt how much money our politicians REALLY get from illegal sources.....!

They all can easily turn to the bible for solace: it condones all their actions and more...
