    In my country our government constantly funds christian organisations
    Ah well :(
    I would prefer to see funding for a secular center for people from certain areas

    Where is Palin and the Tea Party?
    This is about Christian Family Values, and Freedom and Taking America Back and REAL Americans.

    Where are you people? Oh right, your puppet masters need you to follow the playbook.:D

    Can't you follow along, must EVERYTHING be listed out for you.
    1. People are AGAINST the NY Community Center
    2. Now you complaining that TAX dollars will be used
    3. While America CLAIMS of separation of C&S they are STILL peddling Christianity. Proof, look at the whole Obama is a Muslim thing, so WHAT if he is and or was. I thought you said separation of C&S...right
    4. T Party ppl want to take America back and call for REAL Americans to stand up and also wanting traditional family values etc...

    So, here is a clear case for them to protest if on nothing else but the TAX issue alone. So where are they?

    I wish there was truly separation of church and state. I don't want my government supporting any religious institutions.

    droiduzr2: you DO realize that you're becoming an "anti-birther", right?

    Not EVERY discussion of American politics requires "ZOMG!!!!!one1eleventy!! The Ebil Tee Partiez"

    Sometimes, groups not even related to either the Left or the Right become involved in political issues. Weird, I know...


    Honestly, I would prefer we remove all the BS concerning religion from our laws. No special privledges, no tax breaks, no Federal money. For ANY faith.

    However... if Christian centers can get Federal dollars, so can Islamic centers...

    That's absolutely hilarious.

    The fact that the citizens of a nation don't want a Muslim president doesn't mean the "government" peddles Christianity.

    I understand that you believe what you believe and you don't need actual facts to back that up... but this is probably the biggest reasoning fail I've seen in a long time.

    Its not just religions they fund, anything they know will put the lint out the govs' hair. But I do believe they need to seperate church from state being that alot of people can not be in politics becuase of their religous beliefs. Especially if you have none.

    Man, you really have comprehension issues.
    I guess to you the Presidents RELIGION is MORE IMPORTANT that his ideas or leadership or character.

    hmmm Didn't Hitler brainwash a Nation to become the "President" of Germany BASED on Religion or was it his IDEAS the PEOPLE VOTED FOR?

    So in your world there can NEVER be an Atheist President because based on YOUR reply you would only vote for a Christian.

    Are you getting new leather boots for Christmas?

    Hello Mr. Pot

    Actually the word AWESOME by default means GOOD/NICE.

    I know comprehension escapes you, keep trying, yes you CAN:D

    wait wait, how's this. "I like your lifestyle as much as you like my church"?

    You bring out the worst in this forum, that's quite the accomplishment.

    Hows this. If you don't like what others post in your thread then don't post it to begin with. Saves you and others the headache.

    That's actually more a function of the voting public than of any law that I've ever heard of.

    What are you, 19 or something?
    You retort seems juvenile complete with the sticker your finger in your ear image yelling la la la I can't hear you.

    You do know what they say when you point your finger...3 are pointing right back at YOU.

    That was the most childish thing I have seen on a forum...oh look someone that is challenging my thought process is hurting my feelings...*Crude takes his ball and runs home*:eek::eek::eek:


    Dark Jedi- Crude is all about FREEDOM of HIS speech, didn't you get the email:D:D:D

    Since this is a thread about church and state, I thought I would pose this question here. Where does a US Federal judge get the authority to make a ruling regarding the anti-Sharia law passed in Oklahoma? I can't seem to find anything in the Constitution that gives that authority.
