I don't want to get into a big debate on this, but sit down some time and muse on the pro arguments for each side and the feelings behind them.
    That's why I said many and put that group beside a similar group, the islamofacists. I'm talking about the lawsuit happy media whore types who get a lot more press than the more reasonable folks you have had the pleasure to interact with. I'm talking about Americans United for Separation of Church and State, who think that government should be a religion free zone. Just like not every muslim wants the evil west conquered by the sword, not every atheist wants the church hog tied and gagged. But the ones who do on both sides have no issues shouting it from every available roof top.

    What do you expect... we have a socialist government that we need to get rid of. Roll on 2010. The conservatives here are against the surveillance state, and we will win at the next election.

    I have to say that the Happy Holidays seems to be an American thing rather than a European one. As an atheist, I am fine with saying Merry Christmas.

    There is a glut of PC thinking on both sides of the aisle. There is a case to be stated that the bus driver should have received no pay for each shift where he refused to drive the bus ... instead the company is bending over backwards to accommodate him.

    The man gets paid to drive a bus. He does not get paid to decide what is posted on the side of the bus.

    I don't see this as any different than the muzzie cab drivers that won't transport people that are carrying alcohol.

    He should be fired.

    I thought you had a long weekend planned? I hope your plans didn't fall through. I'm stuck working from home all weekend. I can't complain, it beats going in to the office.

    I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.

    Politicians expressing their faith in GOD: Democrats==GOOD----Republicians== BAD

    Have you ever heard of an atheist or any of their followers bash Bill & Hillary for their Christian beliefs? How about grease-ball Al or mouth of the south Jessie? Therefore, I will let the Good Lord be the judge whether their beliefs are thinly veiled.

    Good to hear. I wish your opposition luck.

    I have to say that the Happy Holidays seems to be an American thing rather than a European one. As an atheist, I am fine with saying Merry Christmas.
    Then you may remove yourself from the group I am griping about. Even if you insist on saying Happy Holidays, you're not one of the people I'm griping about. The hyper PC folks who insist I say Happy Holidays, or demand that stores don't put up Merry Christmas signs in the name of inclusiveness, those are the targets of my ire.

    You drive this bus instead of that bus is not bending over backwards. Letting food workers not wash their hands because it would expose to much skin for their religious beliefs, that's bending over backwards.
