NO PROTECTION

Any religion should stop being protected as religion when it crosses over into vile activities and requires the taking away of another man, woman or child's life, liberty and pursuit of happiness.

I couldn't agree more.....

Nancy said...

The one thing that makes America the greatest country in the World is the COMPLETE separation of Church and State.

Every country that has mixed the two has failed...We must keep religion out of politics or we are in danger of failing,too.

Loving Annie said...

Totally agree!

ugh...that's all of them (eastern religions included).

Thomas Paine has some good quotes:

- Of all the tyrannies that affect mankind, tyranny in religion is the worst

- My mind is my own church

maybe the first drove him to the second?

It makes me so upset when people do violent and hateful things in the name of God. Totally missing the message.

Dani – Marla – Changes – Thank you for the agreement.

Nancy – Amen to your comment. I have never attended a church where the pastor discussed politics and I truly believe in the separation of church and state, but how are we every going to bring that to pass?

Loving Annie – Talon – So glad you agree. Today is the saddest remembrance of what some zealots can do in the name of religion and that is not to say the Christians and others have not also done horrible things too.

Jessi – Bless you for always speaking up with something worthwhile. I could not agree with Thomas Paine more and appreciate you for sharing that.

Riot Kitty -- You bet I am with you on that!
