Religion in Politics : LUSENET : Gore 2004 : One Thread

We don't like religion in politics. We don't like it if it comes from the left, right or center. We believe that government and the politicians and officicials should guard the Constitution and the Amendments and the Clergy and their people should mind the Bible and the Commandments.

Sheila - You said it well and in a few words!!!

The problem we face is with the misuse of flag and Bible by religionists. Religionists are fake christians--bogus Buddhists-- make believe jews--let's pretend metaphisicians and all the rest of those who give lip service to religion but turn their heads to the need of the poor and the weak.

And Jesus himself said it in even less words

"Render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar's and unto God the things that are God's."

He was preaching separation of church and state long before the U.S. Constitution was written. So why aren't his followers following him?

Too many who talk about Jesus only talk and talk and talk!!!

There's too much politics in religion. Self-declared experts on the so-called god's will abound. TV legislates morals informally. I'm glad I grew up when times were free, way back in the 1960's. George Orwell was way wrong. The State will never have to revert to violence to enforce beliefs...the American Public has no sense of history, and believe everything seen on the boob tube.
