    Deal with the reality.
    Um, there is a carving of Moses with the ten commandments in his arms on the wall inside of the United States Supreme Court building in our nations capital, deal with that reality.

    There is also Mohammed holding the Koran next to Moses holding the commandments. And there is also Confucius and Solon are you noticing a theme here?

    Perhaps because it's easier to say what you really think while posting anonymously under a pseudonym than it is when talking to family, friends, and co workers?

    I'm neither an atheist (I'm agnostic) nor hostile towards christians, but I can certainly identify with the atheists who are. Most christian-hostile-atheists used to be christians, and feel a sense of outrage that they were indoctrinated and fooled for so long. I can definitely relate. I for one find it completely unfair to indoctrinate kids from birth to believe something as baseless as that, and I for one will be raising my kids to think for themselves. If they grow up and want to be christians, then that's great for them, I hope it makes them happy, but I'm not going to brainwash them.

    I think its because DP leans to the left where most of society is center right and a huge majority believe in God......I think the last poll was around 86%. It is encouraging to see that in this far left forum the majority still believe in God...

    Whether you like it or not the USA is a judeo/christian country. I am a Roman Catholic and we force the Catholic religion on no one. We welcome people who want to be Catholic

    You ever notice that in every thread you post in, the majority of the people there disagree with you on the selected topic? At some point in the conversation, you then throw your hands up in the air and accuse everyone of being leftists and not part of the mainstream of America.

    I guess that's easier than actually debating and attacking the points of your opponents. You'll find the people here who oppose you come from every sector of the political spectrum.

    You sadly remind me of my dad, who says things like "If you're not a mainstream christian, you should get the hell out of America! U-S-A!! U-S-A!!"

    I voted 'For' but what I believe you wouldn't call Christian at all. And about the only place conservatives and I agree are in military matters - usually, but not always.

    I don't think the government, any government, should spend money on religious symbols. I understand why it was done in the past but just as SC finally took down their Confederate flag, so should we keep religion out of government.

    It is really a waste of time to post a poll here dealing with political or social issues......I believe that most of the members here a kids who are brainwashed at this time and like I did when I was their age will grow out of it when they get older and wiser and get married and have a family and most important of all get away from the left wing college profs. who are trying to brainwash them.......even a far lefty like you has to wonder why the polls are so different then they are on the national level...

    There is a separation of church and state my friend but since we are a God fearing country and most of our legislators are themselves Christian you will never shut God out.
