Quote# 64377

[Minister's son believes it should be illegal to post the Ten Commandments in government buildings.]

Run him out of town. Have businesses refuse to do business with him. People have to start standing up to these people. He needs to learn the law, because posting them is not illegal. Then again, our ideas and beliefs are outdated. When we let the few push us around, we get what we don't stand up for. That's why we are where we are in this country today.

Obviously the guy knows his legal stuff. You don't. As for all those people putting the 10 Commandments in their shops they can do so if they are the owner. If you succeed be prepared for a pentacle right by the commandments. It's only fair, right?

at least some of the posters disagreed with josh about running the man out of town.

When we let the few push us around, we get what we don't stand up for.

This is why (and I'm probably becoming a broken record at this point) I disagree with the idea of redefining the word "democracy" to include the government of the U.S. Too many people only know the classic definition-that the majority rules. By this definition, it makes sense that if Christians are in the majority, they should be able to require non-Christians to abide by the laws they vote for.

The fact that our government is based on a Constitution, and that all laws must conform to that Constitution, makes us a republic, not a democracy. If we keep this definition, then it's easier to explain why just because Christians are the majority doesn't mean they get to pass their morals off as law.

"Then again, our ideas and beliefs are outdated."

Finally, something a fundie & I can agree on.

Yeah, I remember when I was charged with not honoring my mother and father...

So, by your logic, we should run out of town anyone who argues that we shouldn't do something that's legal. (It isn't legal, but still.)

There go all the pro-choice people!

Doesn't this amount to: "He doesn't BELIEVE WHAT WE BELIEVE?! BURN HIM!! BURN THE WITCH!"

When ideas are obsolete, it's time to move on.

He's a minister's son. You're a cretin from one of the deepest, darkest pits of stupidity known to the internet. You wouldn't recognize the law if it walked up to you, introduced itself and proceeded to hit you with the cluebat of justice.
