Quote# 8117

Based on their worship of the doctrine of 'separation of church and state', secularists and skeptics are constitutionally obligated to do the OPPOSITE of what Jesus would do.

And this is a bad thing because....?

Contrary to what they teach in Sunday school, Jesus wasn't quite as nice a guy as most people think.

In fact, some think he was a delusional schizophrenic: http://humanknowledge.net/Thoughts.html#God

A little odd to characterize it as \"worship\". And it doesn't mean we can't do things that Jesus would approve of (helping the poor, for instantce) - it merely means we don't (and can't) use the government to attempt to convert people.

WWJD stands for \"What would Jesus do?\"? With all those fundies wearing crap with that on it, I assumed it meant \"Who would Jesus demonize?\"

There's one little problem with iowan15's statement:

Jesus wasn't a politician, he was a minister. He didn't run in a political party and wasn't trying to merge church and state. Quite frankly, he didn't care about creating a theocracy, he simply ministered.

iowan15 must be referring to those other ministers: Pharisees.

An even bigger problem: the phrase \"Separation of Church and State\" while it does not have a root in the Constitution, it DOES have a root in the sixteenth century credo of the Anabaptists (later the Baptists). So, the evil secularists are... using... a Christian concept for evil?

Jesus never existed; A myth for the dismally stupid.

Based on what he said here iowan15 has no clue how secularism works nor what Jesus said

Again, you only lesson the meaning of Worship when you apply it to absolutely fucking everything.

Are you so indoctrinated that you can't even fathom that others don't need something to worship?

Separation of Church and State is a logical position that the Founding Fathers formed, based on what they knew of the havoc that religion wrecked back in the Old Country.

The separation just means that personal religion should be kept personal, and public state affairs should be handled in the public arena, not in church. (Yup, it goes both ways, ya know.)

This might well be exactly what Jesus would do, considering what he said about praying in private (as only hypocrites pray in public), and "Render unto Caesar".

Actually, it's many Religious Rightists that seem obligated to do the OPPOSITE of what Jesus would do, as stated in Matthew 25:35...

I have the feeling your definition of "seperation" is fundamentally different than mine. If I have to do the exact opposite of something all the time I'm not seperated from it at all. It would actually be one of the closest bonds I could have with something. You are an idiot.
