You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

There is no welfare in India so it is expected of anyone middle class up to hire servants IAW ones income and place in life. Mama really liked it.
What is the point of all this? If Christians can't accept atheists without issue, or atheists can't abide religious without issue, no matter how much or what any of us worship, then people just aren't worth crap. I get tired of people complaining about Romney was a Morman, Christians want a Nativity scene, and someone else does not want to be confronted with any worship of any kind or style. Ergo, I have a Christmas tree. I don't have a holiday tree. I have a Nativity scene in my living room. I also have a statue of Buddha which my father found in the Jungles of Burma during WWII at an old deserted temple which had been retaken by the jungle. If anyone doesn't like it, they can go straight to hell without passing go and collecting $200. After that experience in India, which taught me the most important thing in life, religious (or areligious) tolerance. When I did research about religions I CHOSE the most common Christian faith in the world because to me their doctrine more closely followed the New Testament and was the basis for all of the New Testaments printed today. Even the King James version which is quite popular among some denominations is nothing more than an English Translation of the original Christian New Testament. The reason I CHOSE this faith is because it was the most inclusive faith I found. It does not exclude the truths of any other religion to include the eastern religions. There, now you have it. What are you going to do about it?
that is where the phrase actually came from-not the vietnam war but rather the papists vs protestants or "heretic" wars
