    Your religious freedom ends when it affects mine.
    Your conclusion has no basis in reality. Present evidence Boykin would not allow freedom of religion in his command.

    Yep, we have a tendency to be like that.

    That said, that type of activity is not confined to religious people. But I understand your point.

    EDIT: I said "we" as if I am religious. I wish I could truthfully make that claim.

    Really a General said that? Well he has a right to his opinion,just like all a'holes have opinions!


    It's not because John McCain doesn't care. It's because John McCain doesn't get it.

    Sure, but I said "in religion" because it's the topic. People can also be patronising when talking about their country too, not just their god. You know, like the US promotes peace and democracy, when that only happens if its in the interest of a few, if not, we promote chaos, like in the Middle East, or economic pain like in Latin America. My gods better than yours, my dad's better than yours, my teams better than yours, my countries better than yours, etc.
