    Should the government outlaw religion?

    Do YOU think there is the slightest chance the American government will make any moves toward outlawing religion? If you do believe it is possible, what actions taken by the government cause you to believe such a thing? or were you just attempting a trolling?

    Our government cant but wish it could (be the only religion)..

    Progressives like Pelosi and ObamaClownToolBoy view themselves as idols...

    Progressives in government dream about being Mao, Stalin, Hitler, Pol Pot et al while using forces like Che Guevara to achieve that goal, well after they ban everything that can be used in self-defense.

    I suppose in Lenins "Utopia" religion was horrible because it distracted people from worshiping his government and having obedience to his government and his Red Army.

    Wait wait wait? I hate pedophiles as much as the next person...but are you telling me that it isn't a mental disorder? It is a criminal action yes. I get that. People deserve punishment for their crimes, but pedophilia is a mental defect like someone being a sociopath. Maybe I misunderstood the title and your post...maybe I missed the context...and I hope I did...but it seems like you are saying pedophiles aren't defective mentally?

    Re: Cardinal says paedophilia 'not a criminal condition'

    The word "pedophile" has seriously been rebranded from anthropology and its defined terminology ....

    Obviously we have our own ethics but in some cultures it is not odd for a 35-year-old to have children with a 14-year-old - it's just human nature.... Of course that is anthropology and not our western ethics....

    Sociologically typing - I think that our culture is obsessed with fetishes and views sex as with a "child (an individual between 13-17)" as some sort of wicked act but the cultures that engage in such a practice do so for reproductive purposes.

    Of course I live in the west and our culture is different... But historically and even presently in the Middle East, Africa and Asia it's common.... Many countries are trying to adapt to the western ethics tho... I don't know if that is good or bad.

    You cannot imagine an action somewhere between banning religion and doing nothing? Really?

    Man, you have so little clue as to what liberals and/or progressives are interested in that it is hilarious. Best laugh in awhile with this post, thanks.

    13 to 17 is not pedophilia.
