Who said I agree with everything Bill Maher says? He was spot on with his statement. Heck, from time to time, I can even agree with the Bill O'Reilly. Religitartd right wing nutts, like you, just will hold on to the lies you hold so close to your hearts, that you can never agree with someone with an opposing view, even if there is no disbuting the truth of a factual statement. You just plug your ears, walk around, la la la, derp derp derp!

We aren't dealing with rational people here. They are strangers to logic.

I've got no beef with religion per se, but these fundamentalists are a national embarrassment.

ACLU considering helping the KKK get a road sponsorship.

Because, you know, the KKK and Jews (that supposedly run the ACLU) go together like ice cream and sprinkles.

Explain this, paint huffers.

"these fundamentalists are a national embarrassment."
-what ewe call 'fundamentalists' started this country!
and 'strel they had something which ewe indicated was bad-'strong convictions' Post #18 quotes a couple more modern ones like JFK & MLK which apparently ewe hate too cuz like the founders they also said things about our Rights coming from God not men/govt.
Funny how ewe'll be concerned about what the KKK (started by top Freemasons Albert Pike etc.) is up to when today they're nothing but a small band of beer drinking rednecks, while for almost as long and continued today, Many THE Most powerful men in politics and business in the country still meet annually at Bohemian Grove every July in the redwoods of CA and wear KKK-like robes and perform very occultic rituals by a 40 foot owl with an altar and sacrifice a supposedly fake baby there and we don't see ewe'r ilk getting upset about that!

*****'Court rejects Acton family's suit to strip 'under God' from Pledge'****
WOBURN -- The latest legal bid to strip the Pledge of Allegiance of the words "under God" has been squashed after a Middlesex Superior Court judge tossed out a lawsuit an atheist couple filed against the Acton-Boxboro Regional School District on behalf of their three school-aged children.
In her decision, released Friday, Judge S. Jane Haggerty wrote that "the Pledge is a voluntary patriotic exercise, and the inclusion of the phrase 'under God' does not convert the exercise into a prayer."
The Acton family, whose identity was withheld from court documents, acknowledged in their complaint that their "children have the right to refuse participation in the flag-salute ceremony and Pledge recitation" but argued that doing so causes the children to "suffer actual harm," since it results in their religious beliefs being "publicly rejected, having their patriotism and their patriotism of their religious class brought into question, and being portrayed as outsiders and second-class citizens."
