    what does your comfort have to do with anything?

    as a minarchist, i'm pretty uncomfortable when a bunch of politicians get together in groups to force their will on the populace..... but i'm thinking my comfort level isn't going to stop them from doing it.

    re: Federal court halts Christian prayers at North Carolina county meetings [W:656]

    Personally I couldn't care less but I also don't quite see the point.Did God say to the angels "well I was going to collapse the building on them,but since they asked nicely...".
    If a politician needs to ask for assistance just to do their job,that's not a politician I'm inclined to vote for.
    But that's just me.

    if that is what it's really about, then you would be supportive of it... like SCOTUS has.

    i'm of the mind it's more about your disdain of religion rather than anything having to do with the Constitution.

    and I would say the Pater Noster until the cows came home.. Another black spot on America's reputation and another nail in the coffin of Freedom...

    I should be flattered that you consider me on par with a religion, but I just think you're either confused or being intentionally "slow"...................

    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    I would personally fight for your right to pray to whatever god(s) you like; I just don't believe that praying should occur or government property and or be done by government officials while on official business- that's all
