The fight is against something you believe doesn’t exist.
Your not fighting the belief UFO’s exist.
Nor are you asking the elimination of the tooth fairy.
Your not going to war against Dracula.
Your not fighting the elimination of Santa.
You are not fighting the people who say we didn’t land men on the moon.
But you are fighting against God. God must be real or you wouldn’t be fighting so hard.
Here is a good opportunity to try some critical thinking skills.

Do people who believe in UFOs, Santa, Dracula, the tooth fairy, etc proselytize and try and use the government to foist their ideology on other people to the degree that certain Christian groups do in this country?

You don't have to. Just the talent. For movies and live entertainemnt.

You said you give porn away. You will run into licensing issues about that. You mentioned clickbank. Just what are you giving free porn away so people will click on your links? Toasters?

Around the time you brought your businesses up Microsoft, and I think it was Symantec or McAfee, along with the Feds, took down some servers that ran zombie computers, causing them to produce false clicks, and defrauding advertisers doing so, Big money involved. They are facing jail time. I blieve this was an initiative of Microsoft and the other company. They were protecting the interests of their clients.

Can you imagine what is going on looking for pedophile profiteers like you? I bet you have some business partners upset about your big mouth.

Isn't it amazing? They can have sniffers and readers on the internet following traffic from anyone. They don't have to go through your ISP or web host.

Christianity is a fundamental religious freedom right under the constitution of the United States.

When you attack ones freedom of religion you are attacking the foundation this nation was built on. You are attacking the core principles of the constitution.

“Give me Liberty, or Give me Death!"

is a quotation attributed to Patrick Henry from a speech he made to the Virginia Convention. On that day, at St. John's Church in Richmond, Virginia, and is credited with having swung the balance in convincing the Virginia House of Burgesses to pass a resolution delivering the Virginia troops to the Revolutionary War. Among the delegates to the convention were future US Presidents Thomas Jefferson and George Washington.

Sorry to disappoint you Comrade.

Take away spinning on a gravity center and you really don't have much holding that axis.

Throw a hook down the alley and have it hit a lump just off center. Your axial tilt will change just by encountering resistance, any resistance.

More like reminding militant Atheist of the freedom of religion clause in the United States Constitution.

Of course Atheist never appreciate this. They would prefer that the constitution be modified where freedom is removed.

Your not free if you don’t have a choice. I thought I would never come up against people in my own country that stood against freedom.

Our freedoms are always under attack. I’ve seen it first hand here in this sleepy historical city I live in. The place where Abraham Lincoln walked and lived.

We the People, need to fight those who want to undermine the constitution and strip us of our freedoms.

My country,'tis of thee,
Sweet land of liberty,
Of thee I sing;
Land where my fathers died,
Land of the pilgrims' pride,
From ev'ry mountainside
Let freedom ring!
2
My native country, thee,
Land of the noble free,
Thy name I love;
I love thy rocks and rills,
Thy woods and templed hills;
My heart with rapture thrills,
Like that above.
3
Let music swell the breeze,
And ring from all the trees
Sweet freedom's song;
Let mortal tongues awake;
Let all that breathe partake;
Let rocks their silence break,
The sound prolong.
4
Our fathers' God to Thee,
Author of liberty,
To Thee we sing.
Long may our land be bright,
With freedom's holy light,
Protect us by Thy might,
Great God our King.
Additional verse to celebrate Washington's Centennial
5
Our joyful hearts today,
Their grateful tribute pay,
Happy and free,
After our toils and fears,
After our blood and tears,
Strong with our hundred years,
O God, to Thee.
Additional verses by Henry van Dyke
6
We love thine inland seas,
Thy groves and giant trees,
Thy rolling plains;
Thy rivers' mighty sweep,
Thy mystic canyons deep,
Thy mountains wild and steep,--
All thy domains.
7
Thy silver Eastern strands,
Thy Golden Gate that stands
Fronting the West;
Thy flowery Southland fair,
Thy North's sweet, crystal air:
O Land beyond compare,
We love thee best!
Additional Abolitionist verses, 1843, A. G. Duncan
8
My country,'tis of thee,
Stronghold of slavery, of thee I sing;
Land where my fathers died,
Where men man’s rights deride,
From every mountainside thy deeds shall ring!
9
My native country, thee,
Where all men are born free, if white’s their skin;
I love thy hills and dales,
Thy mounts and pleasant vales;
But hate thy negro sales, as foulest sin.
10
Let wailing swell the breeze,
And ring from all the trees the black man’s wrong;
Let every tongue awake;
Let bond and free partake;
Let rocks their silence break, the sound prolong.
11
Our father’s God! to thee,
Author of Liberty, to thee we sing;
Soon may our land be bright,
With holy freedom’s right,
Protect us by thy might, Great God, our King.
12
It comes, the joyful day,
When tyranny’s proud sway, stern as the grave,
Shall to the ground be hurl’d,
And freedom’s flag, unfurl’d,
Shall wave throughout the world, O’er every slave.
13
Trump of glad jubilee!
Echo o’er land and sea freedom for all.
Let the glad tidings fly,
And every tribe reply,
“Glory to God on high,” at Slavery’s fall.

Song: Proud To Be An American

If tomorrow all the things were gone,
I’d worked for all my life.
And I had to start again,
with just my children and my wife.

I’d thank my lucky stars,
to be livin here today.
‘ Cause the flag still stands for freedom,
and they can’t take that away.

And I’m proud to be an American,
where at least I know I’m free.
And I wont forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me.

And I gladly stand up,
next to you and defend her still today.
‘ Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land,
God bless the USA.

From the lakes of Minnesota,
to the hills of Tennessee.
Across the plains of Texas,
From sea to shining sea.

From Detroit down to Houston,
and New York to L.A.
Well there's pride in every American heart,
and its time we stand and say.

That I’m proud to be an American,
where at least I know I’m free.
And I wont forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me.

And I gladly stand up,
next to you and defend her still today.
‘ Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land,
God bless the USA.

And I’m proud to be and American,
where at least I know I’m free.
And I wont forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me.

And I gladly stand up,
next to you and defend her still today.
‘ Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land,
God bless the USA.
