I notice, however, that you have not addressed the OP anywhere previously in the thread and this post certainly does not address it.
So... you figured you'd just jump in to moan about folks not addressing the OP, even though some of us have, while doing the same thing (not addressing the OP) that you're here to bitch about?
How about you stop running around trying to play junior assistant moderator and only ending up putting your foot in your mouth?
Either that or sit quietly in the corner and drink a nice hot mug of STFU?
Thanks, and you have the best day ever.
As long as the speaker was known to be a peaceful person I would have no issue with him reciting a prayer from his practicing religion. Doesn't mean I have to recite the prayer with him or believe in it. He is up there because of his accomplishments, and if that is how he feels his time is best spent then so be it. I would expect all religions to be given the same treatment though. There is room for them all in this country. If an atheist would like to speak about why they don't believe in god then it's there time let them go ahead.
I believe half of the things I say and say half of the things I believe.
