    50. Wyoming 1889 " grateful to God "

    Looks like the closer the government is to the people, the less secular it becomes.

    We can ban Christmas altogether from the public square and replace it with nothing. Just leave it the same all year 'round. That should bring joy to the hearts of Satanists and atheists everywhere.
    If they removed religion from the public square, that would remove Satanists. You get that, right? If the government stays out of religion, these things don't happen.

    It's not "tolerance" if you only "tolerate" the people you like. Which is exactly what you want them to do - "tolerate" the Christians, but only the Christians.

    The First Amendment guarantees the right to NOT believe in God. It just does.

    It also guarantees the free exercise of religion, and mentions nothing of public property.

    You continue to have the right to not believe in God. Nobody cares what you believe or don't believe, providing you leave other people alone. Again, it's called "Tolerance". It's what makes societies work.

    It isn't worth it. There are a couple of people here who are so completely and utterly clueless and without the capacity for reason, it isn't worth even seeing what they have to say. Those who claim that everyone that disagrees with them is a liberal, or a neo-con, are top of the list.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
