    when will folks understand this?
    technically jews and christians as they both worship the same god,with the difference being jews believed jesus was a prophet and christians believed he was the messiah.

    Why do militant atheists have to throw a fit over hanging the 10 Commandments? People are to hypersensitive, and it's a public place and should be allowed to hang.

    I'm not bothered by seeing them - I kind of like the symbolism a bit eventhough I'm not religious. But there are numerous religions: and do we want to have to represent them all?

    Same sex couples should be allowed to marry. Why are those religious getting their panties in a knot over this? Why are they so hypersensitive?

    a bit off topic to the subject at hand.

    What does this have to do with SSM? I think the hypersensitive ones are those who cannot stomach having the 10 Commandments displayed or want to oppress religious beliefs and freedom of expression by trying to warp the law into stating that you can't display these things in a public place/

    No, but if a student or faculty want to display something in public schools they should be able to. It's shouldn't be a religion free zone.

    Well - court rulings keep deciding otherwise.

    I support allowing *all* faiths to be represented if they're going to allow any - I don't support just one being allowed and none others.

    Why do the hyper-religious Christians continue to wast taxpayer dollars in fighting the lawsuits which they inevitably lose in court? For example, here in Florida, this past week - Bradford County Ten Commandments monument dedicated

    Why do extremist whack job atheists continue to files these lawsuits that in the long run cost tax payers money fighting these extremist whack job atheists? There is nothing in the constitution that says you can put up religious decorations on public property.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    So everyone else can murder, steal, lie against your neighbor, disrespect your parents, convent other's stuff, cheat on your spouse?


    You do realize that these also apply to Catholics, Christians,Mormons, and Jehovah's Witnesses and any other religious that follows the new testament?

    Mathew 19:18-19:19
    19:18 He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness,
    19:19 Honor thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.

    Luke 4:8

    Matthew 4:10

    4:10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.


    Mark 7:22-23
    22 Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness:

    23 All these evil things come from within, and defile the man.
