    Completely false. Christians are absolutely under attack rhetorically for their beliefs by people like you.

    Depends on other issues I suppose if we were to take a look at all your stances, I don't think you would be considered right-wing when all that is said and done.

    I am pro-second amendment, pro-gay marriage, pro for the right of a woman to have an abortion but I would rather her not, pro-welfare (if it was reformed), pro-SSN ( in the fact that government should have NEVER got it's hands in the pool), against the Iraq War, against bailouts, against trickle down economics as it shows it doesn't work when the upper class hordes their money.

    These are just a FEW stances of mine and they go all over the board. I bet if you were to list all of yours they would as well.

    No Chrisitians are not under attack. What is under attack is the discrimination that Christians want to do.

    What I find hilarious is the same backery that wouldn't make a cake for a gay wedding because thy said the SANCTITY of marriage was too important, made a cake for a dog wedding. That's the type of BS that gets called out on Christians.

    Was JC Penny under attack from Christians?

    And under attack rhetorically? I translate that as "are disagreed with." How come homosexuals aren't under attack rhetorically from Christians who say all sorts of nasty things about them?

    What does Gandhi know about Christians? He spent almost all his life in a country which burnt widows when their husbands died and where a caste system still controls people's lives. He should speak of something he knows about. Dead,foreign and dressed in a robe doesn't necessarily mean wise.

    Excluding tantrums, you would seem to have it all together.

    The same thing that frightens me about Muslims, Hindus and all others whom take Peter Pan fairy tales seriously.

    Why do we need the govt to promote any religious values?

    Tell me which religions are unable to practice their religious beliefs without the govt helping them to do so?


    I can think of a few, like polygamy for Mormons, but I believe the mainstream religion has moved on from that.
