Ok, I have to speak up here. How many churches have you attended lately mga, and jobot? I'm slapping both your hands because you are being prejudice. There are a lot of christians in this country and a lot of churches. I personally don't think, and this is only from my own personal experience attending a christian church, or speaking with other christians, that what you are saying is 100 % accurate. Yes it is true in SOME cases, but it is not in all. Please quit lumping all christians or religious people into a sterotypical group.
see....my point has been proven: christian people don't allow or believe in "freedom of speech". sheesh...you say one little thing about how wrong christians are, and they come out swinging and want to throw you in jail or something like that.
so, in your church, nina, you can honestly say that your minister or rabbi or whatever you call him, has never, ever talked about politics in any sermons? (remember, you're a christian and christians can't lie) LOL
and, besides, why should americans be forced to say "under god"? did you not read why they put that in the pledge of alegiance? it wasn't anything to do with god directly, but it was about communism and some groups fearful hatred of communists back in the 50's. no american has to pledge alegiance to the US "under god"....if he existed, he would have nothing to do with america, contrary to the conceited beliefs of many chrisitians.
