Normally I would stay out of something like this thread, but since I have been reference in here, I am compelled to respond.
I will say this: I did not vote for President Bush and in this thread at least my reasons for not doing so are unimportant.
I would also point of that I am among those on this board that at least try to admit when they are wrong.
Oh and by the way, I am not Christian, and I don’t like Christianity even obliquely shoved down my throat. My people did not kill Christ, criminals did.
I find it embarrassing enough having to go to a food bank without having to deal with a Christian religious sermon before I can get something to eat.
I am not lazy, I am just plain sick, I did not ask to be sick, but I am. I will be God dammed if I am going to stick my tail between my legs, and humbly allow someone to tell me what kind of a sinner I am because I can’t work, and how God’s wrath is upon me for killing Christ. So kindly take your moral judgments and put them where the sun doesn’t shine.
What I really am tired of is people walking up to me or coming into my hospital room to tell me how they are going to save me and help me find Christ. Well let me tell you something I have not lost my faith, God and I have a personal relationship but that, is between God and me. I don’t need the name of God plastered all over every thing owned or issued by the government to reinforce my faith.
I am really tired of faith based this and faith based that, persecuted Christian this and persecuted Christians that. I am really tired of hearing about the Christian agenda in every dam newscast I tune into.
Go a head tell me again, how the United States is a Christian Country.
If you think that imposing Christianity is going to stop the crime, and protect your children, you are truly the lost.
Don’t tell me how your not imposing your religious beliefs, you’re the one that brought up “faith based,” and are talking about the so-called restrictions on “Faith Based organizations.” Like the restriction that says I don’t have to listen to a sermon to get food supplied by the federal government.
To put it simply President Bush is enabling the evangelical drive to take away my religious rights, and impose Christianity as the Official religion of this country. I am too staunch of a believer in The Constitution of the United States, to vote for any man like that. When a President of the United States starts repeatedly proclaiming his faith then by the powers vested in him, there is no longer a separation between Church and State.
