Defending the Separation of Laws! Keep Fanatics Off OUR Constitution!

God has no role in government; Christianity has no role in government.

Those fanatics will try to argue that there is no such thing as Separation of Church and State.  Yet it’s very obvious that there is a Separation, even in common knowledge of most American’s.  I like this quote: god has no role in government; Christianity has no role in government.  The founding father’s made this clear.

Jeff Schweitzer: Religion in the Affairs of Man: Mixing Theology and Politics

Declaration of Independence (1776)

The most important assertion in this document is that “… to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.”

Note that the power of government is derived not from god but from the people. No appeal is made in this document to god for authority of any kind. In no case are any powers given to religion in the affairs of man.

Remember, too, that this document was not written to form or found a government, but was stating intent meant to appeal to an audience with European sensibilities. Only four times is there any reference at all to higher powers, specifically: laws of nature and of nature’s god, supreme judge of the world, their creator, and divine providence. In all four cases the references to a higher power appeal to the idea of inherent human dignity, never implying a role for god in government.

Finally, should there by an doubt about the author’s intentions, I offer you this quote from Thomas Jefferson in an April 11, 1823, letter to John Adams: “The day will come when the mystical generation of Jesus by the Supreme Being in the womb of a virgin, will be classed with the fable of the generation of Minerva in the brain of Jupiter.” He went on to say in his concluding paragraphs, “But we may hope that the dawn of reason and freedom of thought in these United States will do away with all this artificial scaffolding…”

These are not the words from a man who would wish to insert god into the affairs of man. [read full article]

Out of Control Evangelical Christian’s on a Cruisade

This is what happens when Evangelical’s are allowed to control the people. Let’s hope we all stand for and defend Separation of Church and State laws in America, otherwise this crusade will start in the United States, AGAIN!  Keep religion out of politics, and don’t make laws favoring religious dogma or religious fatwa’s.  America takes pride in itself with the separation of church and state laws, but more recently voters voted in favor of a religious fatwa in California, and these same types of Evangelical Christian’s are moving across the states to change laws through voter fear tactics in favor of religious dogma.

Wake up people or the Crusades, Salem Witch Trials, or the Inquisitions will take place once again in the America’s.  Religious dogma should not be forced on those of us who do not practice that dogma, and children should be protected from the harm they may inflict upon them as a result of that dogmatic view.

If they had their way the killings would start today.

Beware of the history they try to distort.  Some of them allege things like the Holocaust, the First American Genocide never existed or happened in order to bolster alleged kindness toward the first people here, when they considered them “devils” fit for killing and taking of their land.  You think these people got rich by hard work, the land is stolen land.  Let’s not forget about the Christian terrorists of which the media doesn’t even mention, but they sure mention alleged Islamic “terrorists” and don’t even ask why they exist.

Many of our ancestors came here because they were persecuted for who they were by religious fanatics.  Stand up and defend Separation of Church and State!

Churches involved in torture, murder of thousands of African children denounced as witches

EKET, Nigeria (AP) — The nine-year-old boy lay on a bloodstained hospital sheet crawling with ants, staring blindly at the wall.

His family pastor had accused him of being a witch, and his father then tried to force acid down his throat as an exorcism. It spilled as he struggled, burning away his face and eyes. The emaciated boy barely had strength left to whisper the name of the church that had denounced him — Mount Zion Lighthouse.

A month later, he died.

Nwanaokwo Edet was one of an increasing number of children in Africa accused of witchcraft by pastors and then tortured or killed, often by family members. Pastors were involved in half of 200 cases of “witch children” reviewed by the AP, and 13 churches were named in the case files. [read full article]

Bias Religious Dogma Should Stay Out of Politics

This is what happens when you have religion dictating the lives of the people!  It’s always their way or no way because they are the supreme being, in most cases it’s like that depending on how the faith respects the differences of others or not.

If this were to happen in the US it would probably be Christian’s dictating similar dogma through a supreme leader that would end up attacking the diverse population and minority groups of America, claiming tradition!   This probably wouldn’t happen, but I see some fanatics trying to do it through petitions in favor of their own religion disregarding the faith of others or those that are non believers.  That’s what happens when people bring in religion.  America has long understood that religion should be kept out of politics, but we have these neo Christian’s who are trying to claim otherwise and push their religion on the rest of us.  Their claim of tradition is flawed because “traditions” in America have always evolved, but they don’t want to evolve when it comes to a particular group of people.  Heck, slavery was traditional, divorce was not traditional, women working is not traditional and so on those traditions change when you come to America.

So many other groups that came to America are told your American know, you don’t need those traditions, yet they claim tradition in the name of Christianity when it suits their particular cause, and disregard all the other traditions that they do not follow because were in America now, it’s all oxymoron.  They alleged marriage is traditional to the church, yet they divorce numerous times, have adulterous affairs and bastard children all over the place, and you can easily check family history for all that.

Were American now, we don’t need all those traditions they would say, but unless it’s their tradition and they allege it is then they expect every one to abide by those rules.  It’s a joke!

Sure you can have your views, but your religion shouldn’t interfere with the lives of other people, much lest their personal lives, and we shouldn’t be allowing votes based on religious views that target a minority group of people.  These are things we all need to be aware of.

Iran’s Clergy Step Up Anti-Government Protests

With Iran’s political opposition running out of legal avenues to fight what it sees as fraudulent presidential elections, members of Iran’s powerful clerical class are stepping up their own anti-government protests in defiance of the country’s Supreme Ruler.

An association of religious scholars seen as politically neutral in the dispute between President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Mir Houssein Mousavi sharpened the debate, calling the country’s highest election arbiter, the Guardian Council, biased and the June 12 election results “invalid.”

The statement carries moral weight — especially after the security forces have quashed street protests and jailed hundreds of opposition supporters — but has little practical ability to change the certification of Mr. Ahmadinejad as the winner.

It does, however, highlight a growing unease among Iran’s scholarly ruling class about the direction of the country and questions about the theological underpinning of the Islamic Republic: the assumption that the supreme leader and the institutions under him are infallible.

The Great Exodus of the GOP

A lot of people left the party because they focused to much on peoples personal lives!  Social issues don’t have a part in the political party, this is American, and everyone has a different opinion on their own “moral” issues.  My morals are different than your morals, and just because mine are different than yours doesn’t make your morals better than mine, it’s just ridiculous!

If you want to worry about morals then go to your own religious background and practice it there, it shouldn’t be brought into the political parties.  I’m sad to see the GOPers do this to the Republican party because it’s NOT the party Lincoln founded.

I agree, with McCain’s mother and many others; in that people like Rush don’t represent the Republican party views.  Republican’s started adopting religious views in the 80’s, from my experience, and that’s why a lot of people left the party.  This is America, you can’t have a Party favoring one religion and ignoring the others in it’s stead, and that’s why, we, America have a time honored tradition of “Separation of Church and State” which the neo GOPers totally ignored. 

When they say “conservatism” they are speaking about “fiscal” conservatism NOT your religious “conservatism.” 
Keep your own religion to yourself, people shouldn’t be forced to abide by one religious doctrine, if other’s have an  interest in your particular brand, then they will ask you.

Caruso-Cabrera: Tweak Your Platform, GOP
More evidence of what’s wrong with the Republican party emerged this week with the Mark Sanford scandal. If you haven’t heard, the governor of South Carolina disappeared to who knows where this past week. (Now he says he was not on the Appalachian Trail but in Argentina.) He didn’t tell his wife or his staff, which has lead to all kinds of speculation that he is A: Having an affair; B: Having a nervous breakdown.

If the answer is A, you can add it to the long list of hypocritical actions by self-righteous Republicans. Insert here Senator John Ensign recently having to apologize for an affair.

The Republican Party insists that “American values” must be a core part of the platform. Their values of course; and yet values that many of them don’t adhere to. There are few crimes greater in America than hypocrisy.

American Soldiers are NOT Christian Crusaders!

I’m so thankful that Bush is gone! 

I find this disturbing to say the least!  Bush sent soldiers into Iraq, as warriors for “god”, whose god I ask because American’s have a diverse people who practice diverse spiritual practices.  America has always had a diverse culture of people with diverse spiritual practices.  Bush was suppose to keep his practice out of America’s government [Separation of Church and State] , it’s a personal practice and it’s a shame that he sent American soldiers into a Muslim country with that attitude.

“U.S. soldiers “are not Christian crusaders, and they ought not be depicted as such.”
                                                            – Rev. Barry W. Lynn

Pentagon: Bible Quotes No Longer In Reports

The Pentagon said Monday it no longer includes a Bible quote on the cover page of daily intelligence briefings it sends to the White House as was practice during the Bush administration.

Pentagon spokesman Bryan Whitman said he did not know how long the Worldwide Intelligence Update cover sheets quoted from the Bible. Air Force Maj. Gen. Glen Shaffer, who was responsible for including them, retired in August 2003, according to his biography.

For a period in 2003, at least, the daily reports prepared for President George W. Bush carried quotes from the books of Psalms and Ephesians and the Gospel of Peter. At the time, the reports focused largely on the war in Iraq.

The Bible quotes apparently aimed to support Bush at a time when soldiers’ deaths in Iraq were on the rise, according to the June issue of CQ magazine. But they offended at least one Muslim analyst at the Pentagon and worried other employees that the passages were inappropriate.

On Thursday, April 10, 2003, for example, the report quoted the book of Psalms _ “Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear Him. … To deliver their soul from death.” _ and featured pictures of the statue of Saddam Hussein being pulled down and celebrating crowds in Baghdad. [read more]

Newt Gingrich’s Gay Fascism; More Myth Stories from Religious Fascists!

I think these extremist groups are confusing “Gay Fascism” with something else because Gay people are only fighting for equality and nothing else, so the myth that an alleged “Gay Fascism” exists is a myth being started by these people.

They are not trying to convert your children as the myth going around claims.  You are either Gay or Not, just like you can’t convert anyone to being “Straight,” oh yes, you can pretend to be straight, because you need to fit into your particular group of people and feel accepted, but your only fooling yourself.  The extremist conversion theory is a myth pushed by religious fanatics, along with many other myths.

The only fascists that I know of is Hitler, KKK, and other extremist groups, but they all follow mythical biblical law, and want to exterminate and threaten all Gay people, so again, I have to say that Gingrich is spreading more myth stories in order to gain the converts he needs to push his presidency and kill Gay people.

So, if you like myth stories then you would fit with Gingrich’s new group.

Educate yourself on these kinds of religious fascists, terrorists and fanatical groups [Jim Jones, Timothy McVeigh, Branch Davidian, etc.]  These are some good examples of why religion should be Separate from Church and State laws and politics.  If we have people like Gingrich pushing his Evangelical views on the rest of us, then what religion will we all be forced to practice in the name of his “god”?  Would the Evangelical’s finally ban “The Book of Mormon” for blasphemy or would the Pope finally condemn Evangelicals for removing the word of God from their religious book?  We will only know if people like Gingrich succeed.

Gay people are not pushing any religion or “god” on anyone.  Gay people just want to be free to practice their own religious faiths [freedom of religious practice], and to be treated as American’s with equal protection under constitutional law, NOT religious law.

Newt Gingrich’s Gay Fascism

If only Newt Gingrich could have been a one-hit wonder. Instead, the former Speaker of the House is stirring the pot with a potential 2012 bid for President, and the formation of a new group – Renewing American Leadership. What is the goal of Renewing American Leadership?

To combat gay and secular fascism.

Much as we’d like to be kidding, here’s Gingrich on Fox News:

[T]here is a gay and secular fascism in this country that wants to impose its will on the rest of us, is prepared to use violence, to use harassment. I think it is prepared to use the government if it can get control of it.

So in order to combat this gay fascism, Gingrich’s new organization is looking to build and strengthen coalitions between economic conservatives and religious conservatives. According to Bill Berkowitz over at Buzz Flash, Gingrich will be taking his new organization to an influential group of conservative pastors that were among the leaders of the Bush re-election campaign of 2004, and Gingrich is planning on releasing a film about the late Pope John Paul II’s role in taking down the Soviet Union.

Religious Extremists T-Shirt

Warning! Religious extremists target Gay community. Recent events caused an increasing of hate violence/terrorism toward the Gay community after religious extremists pushed prop 8.

Thank Two Congressmen for Saying No to Creationists

Creationists are scary people whom cannot understand the reality of life.

Here we are in a war against alleged terrorists who wish to exert their religious rule on the rest of us through either physical or verbal ideology [terrorism], and we have to deal with them in our own country!

Public school systems should not force kids to study creationist theory, which should be an elective of choice. Private schools already have that, so anyone wishing that type of education should go to a private school because it’s patriotic and common law of the people to have separation of church and state. It’s like that for a reason because creationist wish to exert their ideology on those of use who do not believe or practice that type of religious system, they belittle anyone else who is not part of that system [terrorism]. Social conservatives terrorize groups of people who are not part of their system [terrorism], and try to push it on us through legal means and votes through fear tactics.

Separation of church and state is one of the founding democracy’s and why America is a democracy and free, it’s why our forebears pushed for a free America in the early years of America. People came here to have religious freedom, and that doesn’t mean the right to antagonize people who are non-believers.

Social conservatives [extremists] allege they have religious freedom, well religious freedom just mean that you have a right to practice your faith without persecution with in your own community, it doesn’t mean it’s okay to persecute non believers or those of another belief system, regardless of the hate the bible teaches. Your faith is personal to you and you alone, and should not be forced on others either through legal means or a tyrannical vote, much less taught in public school as if it’s true science!

Perhaps a new age has come for taxation of that kind of business?

Thank Two Congressmen for Saying No to Creationists
It takes courage for a politician in Texas to speak out against religious fundamentalism. Texas state Senator Rodney Ellis and Representative Patrick Rose deserve the thanks of all Americans for showing that courage.

Whether you’re a Texan or not, if you want creationism out of high school science textbooks – and evolution in them – please take a moment to thank Sen. Ellis and Rep. Rose for fighting the Discovery Institute/creationist-dominated Texas State Board of Education (SBOE).

Rose and Ellis proposed legislation “to place the board under periodic review by the Sunset Advisory Commission and hold them accountable for their performance, just as we do the Texas Education Agency and other state agencies.”

Why? In their own words:

“The decisions of the SBOE not only impact millions of young lives on a daily basis, but impact the economic progress of our state as well.

“For these reasons and many others, the public has a right to full disclosure and oversight.

“The board has escaped such scrutiny for far too long. The disregard for educators, instructional experts and scientists can’t continue. It’s time to take a closer look at the operations and policies of the State Board of Education.

“Our state, and especially our kids, deserve better.” [sign petition]
