And I'm still waiting for you to point out where in our founding documents where we were supposed to be a secular country.
I would, in a nation where all religion is treated equally the ten commandments have no business in a court of law.
That said, I would hardly call putting the 10 commandments in a courthouse,
And here I agree with you. I believe any temperary rituals to be irrelivant and I believe that the foundation of this country to be strong enough to with stand the mear mention of the word god...
A Nativity scene in a public park, or a little girl saying God in a poem establishing a theocracy.
How am I joking with you? Atheism is based on irrationalism, the same as any religion, therefore I would agree that it is a religion
But you go ahead and project all you want because you are so off base on this that it almost like you're joking with us.
However, petitioning or even getting the courts to intercede in those things I mentioned by Atheists is promoting a religion and that religion is Atheism. Scoff all you want but dictionary.com defines religion as
I would disagree, no where have I said it is ok for Athiests to push their view on others. In fact, it is just the opposit, as a secular document I would say that the constitution would prohibit it.
Whether you believe in a supreme diety or not, you have some sort of belief system on how things were created and such. But some people believe in something more strongly than others whether it's God or not in God. What I'm trying to say is based on the Atheists reaction and strong believe that there is no God makes Atheism a religion meaning to you it's OK for the Atheists to use the power of the state to push their religion on others but not the other way around.
