    Heh. Dude, believe it or not, I'm hardly a prude.

    However, there's the question of where do we want that line to be, in regards to public decency.

    Public as in "out in public, in plain view of everyone".

    I mean, is having sex on the sidewalk in a public park during daylight hours just fine with you? No? What about people walking down the sidewalk at 3:00 in the afternoon with their genitalia swinging in the breeze? I'd rather not be subjected to that myself.

    Join a nudist retreat, I won't come there and bother you. Wear as little as you like in your house. If your back yard has a tall privacy fence, do yo' thing on the grass, whatever. Not my problem.

    But in public, especially if we're talking about normal-hours plain-old broadcast TV, is it so freaking terrible to have a few simple standards? Do we HAVE to be constantly awash in sexuality ALL the time, as if that were the sum total of life?

    Is it really so much to ask, to be able to sit and watch the Superbowl halftime with your child and not be subjected to Justin (bleh) Timberlake and Janet (blah) Jackson doing some kind of talent-less softcore porn musical? Complete with gold-studded nipple-popups? Hail it wasn't even good art.

    Just pardon the hail out of me for thinking some mild basic standards might not be quite so horrible.

    Today's the day Christians believe Jesus Christ was resurrected from the dead, and 78% of Americans share that belief.

    A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 10% don't believe Christ rose from the dead, and another 11% are not sure.
    Wouldn't the Christianity of our nation be in the Constitution?

    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    Furthermore, if only 49% of the United States believed Jesus rose from the dead, would we no longer be a Christian nation?

    I had a couple Mormons on bikes follow me for a couple blocks. They weren't pushy and we were having a nice conversation. I didn't take any of their literature.

    When I was in the navy, things like that actually did happen to me. People somehow felt it was important enough to tell us about god they would be dicks about it, which is not an effective way to go about it. While not religious, I believe in respect for others beliefs, and don't mess with people's religious beliefs, with the exception of those who aggressively push their belief on me.

    No these people were that big of idiots. The church they were from is actually a good church and they do a lot of good. And normally when I say no thank you they don't follow or ask again. These two idiots on the other hand didn't follow the same rules, so I felt like I could say what I said. Normally I am not like that to those that after I say no thank you leave me alone.

    Sorry....you are still wrong. It doesn't matter whether the vast majority of the "founding fathers" were "Christian" or not. The bottom line is that they smart enough to have the wisdom to make this a religious neutral country.

    They did not make this a "Christian Nation". It never has been one.

    If you keep trying though....you might just get it. Start by taking a look at the Constitution. That should help you get there eventually.

    Hmmm...I have zero patience for fanatics of any religion. Religious fanatics are creepy. I can spot em' from a mile away....they always have that blank stare in their eyes.

    See that is the thing. I will respect anyone's beliefs. I have even taken a couple of course in college to get a better understanding. But once you start trying to force me to believe, or try and force me to take something from your religion that is where we have a problem.

    I have had wonderful conversations with people from numerous religions and learned a lot. It is when you cross the line from understand to forcing is where I start getting pissed and I start saying things like I did to those two fellows.

    Although I did go talk to the pastor of the church to explain to him what happened because I found out they told him what I said. I told him the only reason I said it was because they kept following me and trying to give me something I didn't want.
