Patsified

Are we becoming a nation of folks who will do anything to avoid standing up for our national creeds and beliefs? Someone has sugested that we change the words Under God in our pledge to under your system of belief..GEEEz what are we coming to? come on folks, Lets show a little old fashioned GUTS.

  • I am a believer in God. But there are many who are not. Now if these people get up to say the pledge, what is to stop them from omitting "God" and put nothing in there, or mohamid? If those same people "had" to say God when recitting the pledge, perhaps they wouldn't even participate.

    Do you believe in a free country, or do you think people should live the way YOU want them to?

  • I believe several things...

    1) Moses did not descend from the mountain with stone tablets with his 10 GOOD IDEAS, on them. Those principles are foundational to our society.

    2) I believe (and unless I'm having a senior moment) in The Constitution, which states that I have a choice in what I believe and that the Government should not putz around and establish a religion for everybody.

    3) I am (unequivocably) a CHRISTIAN. That makes me a member of a group of people that is regularly discriminated against. If I admit, in public, that I am a I am CHRISTIAN, then I am in trouble because Wiccans, Taoists and Secular Humanists may take offense.

    4) I do not have any special entitlements because of my discriminated against status. I don't want any.

    5) The point is this. If my belief causes you to question your beliefs, you are the one with a problem. I am not slapping you 'up the side of the head' with my Ryrie Study Bible. But if my belief makes you nervous, then you are the one with the problem.

    Bottom line...

    Most people feel that they are entitled to feel good all the time about everything. Most people do not seem to understand the differences between freedom and license. And most people are not willing to accept any consequences for their actions.

    I do not feel in a minority (religious or otherwise). Those of us that believe in what our country stands for, need to get together and take it back.

    'Nuff said.

    Peace and all good,

  • Amen Kermit! I don't go around telling people they have to believe as I do and sure as hell don't want someone to push their religion on me.
    Whatever happened to these people to make them so afraid to say "God"?
