Good thing they're spending time on this instead of actual problems.

How typical to focus on this, when people can't find jobs, more and more people are losing their homes, and the gap between the richest 1% and the middle class and poor continues to widen. rolleyes.gif These people are so out of touch with the real concerns of the majority it's pathetic.

It's funny when people use the "tradition" angle to defend the slogan, when in reality it was adopted as a reaffirmation of America's anticommunist stance in the 1950s. haha.gif I personally don't feel strongly either way about this, though. It's a non-issue.

^ It's surely an issue that this is what congress is worried about right now with what mess our country is in.

In that sense, yes, but not in the sense of importance though. I can't believe they're worrying about this when people are losing their jobs, possibly losing their unions, losing their homes. I mean, God is cool and all, but I think there are more important issues than pretty much saying "LOOK THE US IS RELIGIOUS."

Hey, if the US wants to join other countries who let religion rule their state, like Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, UAE...... whistling.gif

Typical politics. Work on the window dressings and furniture rather than the foundation.

I wonder if they actually think of America as the Christian equivalent of those countries? closedeyes.gif I know if states like Texas had it their way then every law in the country would have God involved.

Oh God, yeah I'm sure if Texas = the US, it would be illegal to be gay, people could be put in jail for adultery, etc etc... wacko.gif Texans will deny this, but they're pretty much the Christian equivalent of the middle east.

They'd also probably have segregation. ermm.gif Yeah, that's why I call Texas "Christian Iran." laughing.gif

Yah, religion should not play a part in politics. Not everyone believes in God and it shouldn't be what the government is focused on at all right now. tongue.gif

God, the US is in some deep crap. ermm.gif I really hope China is nice and doesn't do what they CAN do... unsure.gif crying.gif
