I want his personal amswer minus the sarcasm.
Now I have no problem with a manger scene on the town hall lawn and I sort of miss it. That doesn't hurt no one. I think us old folks would say it use to be kind of quaint. But no, we should have no laws whatsoever forcing a religion on anyone and we should have no laws whatsoever prohibiting the practice of one religion.
Early voting in Georgia. On the 20th of October this old Goldwater conservative voted against both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton by casting my vote for Gary Johnson. Neither Trump or Clinton belong within a million miles of the Oval Office.
And it isn't my ego... it is my frustration when dealing with people that refuse to acknowledge things that are so common sense, simple and that are NOT a big deal that bother me.
Do we not have the same laws that we once did? Laws that reflect the religious morality of Christianity like murder, theft, adultery? Our culture does not have Christian wedding traditions like vows, exchanging rings, etc?You have shown that our country was influenced by christianity, you have not proven that it is currently a christian nation.
The us is no longer a christain nation in practice. Its culture and laws prove that.
Hell yes they do. Are you crazy? Just because they are more commercialized does not negate their religious significance. There are nativity scenes, carolling, prayer, etc. and my family isn't even religious and we participate in many of these things.The holidays you list no longer reflect their christian origins.
That, along with the funeral and marriage traditions, burials and this, the moment of silence:
A moment of silence is the expression for a period of silent contemplation, prayer, reflection, or meditation. Similar to flying a flag at half-mast, a moment of silence is often a gesture of respect, particularly in mourning for those who have died recently or as part of a tragic historical event.
Silent prayer and worship, including moments of silence practiced during other group activities have been practiced by Quakers for more than 300 years
We have national and local moments of silence that are even allowed in secular public education.
"The United States is not a Christian nation any more than it is a Jewish or a Mohammedan nation." --Treaty of Tripoli (1797) Carried unanimously by the Senate and signed into law by John Adams
Let's put this 'Christian nation' idea in the round file and move on to more important things.
