    No the political and social engineering was not inherently Atheistic. There was no movement to organize the country in an atheistic manner but rather to simply usurp the religious power base. They claimed the removal of religion was because it is inherently despotic and shackles the mind but the truth was that they wanted that despotic power for themselves and hoped to keep the chains firmly in place. This is very different than an atheist ideal... because there is no such thing.

    reread what you wrote and I think you'll see the flaw in that reasoning.

    That's just bull**** altogether. You can provide no proof of this assertion.

    Your comment was offensive and could hardly be considered as a "joke" because it mirrors your views of Christians; for something to be funny, it has to be OBVIOUS in its irony.

    In your case, it is more in line with your previous inane assertions about religion. Your desperate efforts to suggest this was intended to be “humor” offensive as that is even, can only be believed by the gullible. I guess Captain Courtesy is first in that line.

    Oh God - Cry me a river build a bridge and get the **** over it. You're defending torture but the minute somebody cracks a joke about Jesus you become a bigger fag then New Coup? Why don't you go suck the dick of somebody who cares enough to listen to your problems and sensitivities. You silly politically correct douche bag.

    Another goofy outright fabrication in order to support your whacked out Liberal views. Why would I not find this surprising?

    Reading this, it is OBVIOUS why people like you will never actually "get it."

    Once again, what "rights" have been taken from you by the previous administration in order to ensure your safety?

    I keep asking what this "perceived" loss of rights is and have yet to see anyone make a coherent argument that they have suffered from the Patriot Act or any ACT by the Bush Administration.

    Only in a nation as spoiled as the USA has become can you have citizens claiming that their Government is evil for trying to protect them from terrorists.
