    So fundamental Christians should be forced to tolerate those whose beliefs are different, but not vice versa?

    Here's the threadstarter showing his concern and care for his alleged religion. Racism.

    Rambling for several minutes about a need for everyone to convert to Christianity and bow down to the Christian god was entirely inappropriate for the venue and occasion.

    Democrats talk about America but their brand of America is not the same God Bless America we have traditionally recognized. Their brand of America is the unholy socialist atheistic "Goddamn America" the immoral Democrats are out to create.

    Does the strict separation of church and state mean anything to you? Religious observance is not to be part of the governmental function. The government isn't to be supporting relgious belief over non-belif or endorsing one religion or sect over the others by public action, word or policy.
    If they want to pray then do it on their own time, their dime and their place but religious observance are not to be part of the government.

    Your bible explicitly tells you not to do it, but that has never stopped you because you only read and obey the parts that support your opinions.
    Matthew 6:6-7
    Matthew 6:6 New International Version (NIV)

    6 But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.
    7 And when you pray, do not use vain repetitions as the heathen do. For they think that they will be heard for their many words.

    This is America. I have gotten used to the leftist barbarians praising and worshipping idols and evil and democrats encouraging that sort of thing.

    Someone who knows that proselytizing is not a legitimate function of government and has social graces unlike the rube who gave that invocation.
