Quote# 66029

[Re: a Muslim prayer event]

Yes. We began as a naation of freedom. Do you think we are still that way today? Or are we rather, a nation of complete acceptance of everything... welcoming the voices that are NOT of the God that our nation was founded on? Do we accept other religions and their teaching or do we stand for Jesus and His Word (Who died for us?) When do we say, "I cannot support this"?

We began as a naation of freedom.

To be brutaly honest, we never really were a nation of freedom.

welcoming the voices that are NOT of the God that our nation was founded on?

Our nation was never founded on any god.

Freedom = good, but acceptance = bad?

Also, I think we're better off as a naation. The more a's the better!

Define "freedom" and we may have a talk.

Remember: Freedom is always and exclusively freedom for the one who thinks differently

Wait so accepting what other people do is against freedom?

Again, we were not a nation founded on Christianity, this is what happens when you are home schooled.

No one will argue that the majority of the population then and now are Christians, but the leaders of our country, the founding fathers, were largely deist, to even agnostic.

Spoilt brat. You have more freedom than most people can even dream of. But just like a petty child you can only be happy if you are the only one with toys.

When do we say, "I cannot support this"?
You just did.
Of course, taking awayt he freedom of others to worship as they will would pretty much stuff up the whole of your earlier point.

Welcoming something new fits with freedom perfectly.

Either freedom means something different in America that it does in the dictionary, or this person is a fucking idiot.

"We began as a naation of freedom."

The Puritans were about as freedom loving as the Taliban.

"Do you think we are still that way today?"

You can post this whiny paranoid crap and not get arrested, what do you think?

"Or are we rather, a nation of complete acceptance of everything..."

Would that we were.

"welcoming the voices that are NOT of the God that our nation was founded on?"

For the 879,000,000th time, we are NOT a christian nation. We were founded by syphilitic greedmongers looking for gold and spices to sell back in their old country.

"Do we accept other religions and their teaching or do we stand for Jesus and His Word (Who died for us?)"

Ahhh, playing the tiresome religious-freedom-as-long-as-you-believe-what-I-do card.

"When do we say, "I cannot support this"?"

So sit home in your little vacuum and wallow in your paranoia. No one says you have to support anything, but people are going to believe what they believe whether you like it or not. That's what freedom is, baby. After all, we have to put up with your fundie crap, so fair's fair.

You have the freedom not to support it. They have the freedom to do it any way. Both your belief systems are just as loony tunes as the other as far as I am concerned and quite frankly I wish the lot of you would just STFU.

"When do we say, "I cannot support this"?"
oh, that's an easy one. i can say that every single time one of you numbnuts says anything about anything.

rapture ready said it...it's fucking retarded...that settles it.

I love how he twists it around to make it sound like the First Amendment is unconstitutional.

His username is just so apt here.

Treaty of Tripoli, bitch!

Yes, we started as a nation of freedom..for all white Christian males. Everyone else was subject to being sold into slavery or controlled.

Doubting Thomas

Sorry, but this nation was never founded upon any god. Freedoms, yes, but gods, no.

And I love it how Christians will fight tooth & nail to preserve "freedom of religion" but want to throw it out when it's a religion other than their own. I'll say it yet again, Christians tend to believe that "freedom of religion" really means "freedom of Christianity."

Thinking Allowed

Yes. We began as a naation of freedom. Do you think we are still that way today?

More so now than then. Society is becoming more accepting of what was abnormal when the country first started.

Or are we rather, a nation of complete acceptance of everything...

Not everything as you say. There are still bigots like yourself that are still around.

welcoming the voices that are NOT of the God that our nation was founded on?

FAIL

Do we accept other religions and their teaching or do we stand for Jesus and His Word (Who died for us?)

Perhaps you should read what the Constitution (particularly the First Amendment) has to say about religion.

When do we say, "I cannot support this"?

Anytime you want twisty58. After all, this is a free country.

So complete acceptance is ok so long as it is Jesus? Amirite?

Dr. Novakaine

Does Rapture Ready have a different definition of freedom than the rest of the known universe? Because it would explain a hell of a lot.

Treaty of Tripoli, bitch, etc.

Part of the idea of being a nation of freedom is that we have no single religion.

Caustic Gnostic

I think the 'freedom' here is simply freedom from consequences, freedom to be ignorant and freedom to be proud of one's ignorant little self.

You've always shouted your disaproval.

Good thing it's a secular country without religious prejudice as it's base. That what made America great, Not the Bible belt or your ficticious Christian Founding Presidents

What you want is a Christian Theocracy, always evil, always self-centered and always against freedom
