    GOD does not belong to "Christians". GOD on money, GOD in the pledge does not reference a preference for any religion over any other. Isn't that Great!!!
    Because our country is founded on the free exercise of religion, it does not dictate your hope that everyone worship your version of "Christianity".

    Haven't you noticed that many different denominations give the prayer offered every morning in Congress. It is not a "Christian Prayer".

    I know that you badly want the government to sponsor your version of Christianity as a national religion so that you can claim this is a "Christian" country....but this is not and has never been a "Christian" country, no matter how bad you would like it to be.

    What God do you think they are referring to........The Buddist God? The Islam God.......They are talking about the Christian God and you know it..........

    I believe in the Separation between church and state but that does not take away from the fact that we live in a Christian Country which has nothing to do with the government........

    That's absolutely not true. It refers to a higher power...it doesn't refer to Jesus Christ, Buddah, Allah or any specific God.

    Why would our government EVER take a position in promoting one religious view over another?

    Face it Navy, you are dead wrong. This is not, nor has it ever been a "Christian" Country. All you have to do is look at the founding documents of this nation to see that this nation was set up on relgious neutrality. As much as you and the evangelical world want our country to embrace its distorted view of "Christianity", it goes against the very core principles of this country.

    Oh, I know! I know! Call on me!

    We all know this country was founded on, in part, the tenents of Freemasonry.

    One of the tenents of F&AM reads, "All important undertakings should begin with the blessing of diety."

    How do I know this? If I told ya, I'd have to kill ya.

    Masons. The original patriots. True then. True now.

    I was surprised to find that the almost all the defenders at the Alamo were Freemasons. And a Welshman.

    Limiting the options to one deity excludes a lot of gods. Being three for the price of one, that excludes Christianity completely.

    The masons, while religious in nature, is a fraternity and not a religion in and of itself. When invoking the "blessing of diety" prior to their important undertakings, the diety is always addrerssed as "T.G.A.O.T.U.," meaning, The Great Architech of the Universe, respectively. The reason behind that is because Freemasons come from too many cultures, countries, races, ethnicities and religious faiths to count and "harmony and strength is the support of all institutions." Masonry in America, I have observed, doesn't endorse any religion over another but does have a particular lean to christianity, in as much of the rightous morals it represents, amongst it's brethren. But being religiously "benign," so to speak, always works better towards keeping the peace.

    Religion and politics make for upheaval and ill-will. So Masons leaves matters such as those to politicians and preachers. In the lodge, the guy to your left might be a muslim and the guy to you're right might be a southern baptist. The guy in front might be a Catholic and the guy behind you might be a Wiccan. Who knows? Who even cares?

    It's amazing what one can accomplish without the heavy yoke of religious or political idealogies weighing them down. The United States, being just one example. The US would be MUCH better if it realized that harmony and strength is the support of all institutions. You can lead a horse to water......
