The strict separation of church and state

I have been debating on whether to start this discussion for a while because it is sure to be very divisive and there are probably people who will choose to troll instead of posting valid and rational responses but I am going to take that chance because this idea needs to be discussed. There are two important religious freedom clauses in the First Amendment of the Bill of Rights. The...

The Democratically controlled House of Representatives voted Friday 236-173 in favor of the Equality Act, which would require schools to include male athletes who identify as transgender girls on female sports teams. Eight Republicans crossed party lines to vote for the bill, which had unanimous Democratic support. The bill amends the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to make “sexual orientation...
May 20 7:21pm @9.1.47 "..." yeap, that must be it, thanks !
May 20 6:59pm @9.1.43 "..." why would you conflate biological sex with gender while knowing they aren't the same thing ?
May 19 5:57pm @9.2.1 "..." um.. that's been happening for quite a few years, decades even - have you not been paying attention ? i haven't seen any biological male pretend to be a trans female just to win at female...
May 19 5:53pm @9.1.20 "..." biological sex is biological - research gender and gender identity, there's a difference between the two. one's opinion doesn't change the fact there's a difference between biological sex...

May 18 12:16am @9.1.8 "..." very interesting viewpoint..... out of curiosity - do you believe in pizzagate as well ?
May 17 11:59pm @9.1.2 "..." so you seriously believe that this will be the new trend - that cisgendered boys will pretend to be transgendered girls so they can win at girls sports and brag to their friends about it ?...
May 17 11:38pm @9 do people actually believe that cisgendered boys are going to pretend to be transgendered girls just to compete in girl's sports and try to win ? so they can - what - brag they won in girl's sports ?
Stricter abortion bans are conservative-led states' gambit to overturn Roe vs. Wade

Stricter abortion bans are conservative-led states' gambit to overturn Roe vs. Wade

ATLANTA - When Republican lawmakers in Alabama weighed a stringent new bill that would outlaw almost all abortions, they did not pretend that it complied with federal law or that it would go into effect anytime soon. "Yes, it's unconstitutional," state House Rep. Terri Collins, the bill's sponsor, said last week at a hearing. "All our pro-life bills are unconstitutional right now. That's the...
May 12 8:17pm @6.1 "..." it's all about control and they want control over women's medical decisions and bodies - but this is just a slippery slope start for control, think about a bigger picture.

At PragerU, we have released about 400 videos on virtually every subject outside of the natural sciences and math. Along with two billion views, the videos have garnered tens of thousands of comments. So we have a pretty good handle on what people most love and most hate. For example, any video defending America or Israel inevitably receives many negative responses. But no videos elicit the...
May 12 8:00pm @9.1.25 "..." yet they do announce on Sunday worships and in their "home gatherings" that it is for the Christian religion etc - do these small groups and large protests announce it's specifically for...

May 09 11:09pm @9.1.5 "..." possibly because many of the religious always feel the need to constrain others under their religious views/rules, it's almost as if they wish to live in a theocracy and be ruled solely by...
May 09 9:21pm @4.2.43 "..." for freewill to exist in your example - there absolutely has to be a CHANCE that LFOD will SURPRISE you and possibly pick another candidate or decide not to vote or even come up with...
May 08 9:24pm @4.2.39 "..." absolutely ! a simple concept many can't seem to grasp....
May 08 9:15pm @4.2.37 "..." it seems to be the case - freewill requires the elements of surprise and chance, these elements are not possible with an omniscient God who knows everything in advance
May 08 9:12pm @3.1.19 "..." yet he's not powerful enough to defeat the devil, nor communicate a clear message so that none of his creations would misunderstand it, huh ?

Big Tech always preaches about treating people equally, but they never do. Funny how their “algorithms” never seem to suspend liberals’ accounts. The religion of Inclusion is a fraud. As I write this, my organization’s Twitter account (@LifeHasPurpose) has been suspended for 15 days for violating their cardinal rule—don’t tweet the truth.  On April 13 th we responded to Representative...
May 11 8:55pm @3.1.12 "..." so they want secular public business owners to do their job and serve the public - and you are upset over this ? "..." they currently do - after all you are very conservative minded and...
May 09 10:10pm @3.1.2 "..." well you know there are many conservative minded people who claim to want a "limited" government - until they want to use the government to control private entities they disagree with

Another Act of White Supremacist Terror. When Will GOP Leaders Say Enough? Posted:Sun, 28 Apr 2019 04:34:10 +0000 Two horrific acts of terrorism were committed this weekend against non-Christians. One by an Islamophobic Christian supremacist terrorist mistakenly targeting Sikhs (again), and one by an anti-Semitic white supremacist terrorist spouting “replacement theory”...

A Serious Question: How is abortion anyone's business?


By: Gordy327  •  205 comments  •  3 months ago
Over the last several months, there have been news reports of certain states trying to prohibit or severely restrict abortion rights, impose legal penalties for women seeking abortion, and even judicial interventions regarding the government's funding of health providers who also perform abortions. While such instances are not new, the current round of abortion arguments probably started...
May 06 11:41pm @13 abortion will always be all about control - either controlling women and their health decisions, or letting women have control over their own bodies... apparently some people feel that it's their...

May 06 9:47pm @3.4.22 "..." interesting.. because "inane" questions like that (in concept) are heading to the Supreme Court - maybe you should use your "expertise" and let those judges know how they should rule.
May 03 11:11pm @3.4.18 "..." my mistake -- i thought you could answer a simple "yes" or "no" question. I was wrong. Oh well.
May 03 10:14pm @3.4.15 "..." so, if human sacrifice is against the law but my religion believes in human sacrifice - does that mean my first amendment rights for my religious beliefs are being denied and i'm being...

They believe this stuff.   The leader of the group, Mark Sargent, claims that the Earth is flat and the stars and planets are just lights in the sky.   He holds that the flat Earth means that there is a greater force than us.   Apparently the views are religious.
May 03 10:06pm @5.1.6 "..." WHAT ?! i was told there was a secret toy surprise in the middle, like they have in certain cereal boxes (or did). There's no secret toy surprise ?!?!

The Equality Act continues to draw strong criticism and warnings from advocates of traditional and biblical values – and voters are being encouraged to get hold of their representatives on Capitol Hill and urge them to vigorously oppose it should it come to a vote. Dr. James Dobson … Alliance Defending Freedom … Dr. Michael L. Brown … National Religious Broadcasters … American...
