fortheloveofChrist's comment history

If the people in a government office are all ok with having a prayer prior to a meeting why can't it be done? How is that pushing a religious belief on someone that does not believe?

I honestly believe that I am a much happier person knowing that God is on my side. That the Holy Spirit is here to guide me and protect me. That there is a place to go in the end where we can see lost loved ones and be free of all evil that is here on earth. I do believe I would be a very lonely person without all of this.

You are more than welcome to try to get "our" government to print a different currency for "you" to use. Again, why should we not be able to speak of God just because you don't believe?

Since this country was founded with the belief of God, maybe you might want move to a country that has their dictator's picture on their currency instead of the word God. I'll guarantee that you won't be pushing that government to change what they were founded on.

Easy123,

secular - Has a root meaning of "temporal"—opposed to the eternity of the church—and means "not connected to a religion."

I guess we disagree. I can guarantee that our country was not founded on the above definition of secular. Example, the last time I looked at any/all U.S. money it states "In GOD We Trust". It's been that way from the beginning.

Please explain to me why I and others like me cannot publicly display our love for Christ. What is the difference between us saying "WE Believe" and you saying "You Don't Believe"??

This country was founded on Christian beliefs. There are laws that give us the freedom to speak those beliefs. (not only Christian beliefs but others also)Why is it that our government has the right to rule against what our country was founded on?

This country has gotten to where it is today because of our freedom. Everyone wants to express that freedom in their own way. What is so wrong with that?! If we don't have freedom of speech (no matter what you might believe in)we might as well live in a society governed by a dictatorship.

If Christians can't speak what they believe freely why should any other group (religious or not)be able to speak what they believe freely? Why does our government have the right to decide who should be able to speak freely and who should not?

Why can't we all treat each other as we would like to be treated? With respect.
