Hokey Pokey Boom Boom and the Forty Thieves... with Knives
Let me start off by saying though not a big time ooga booga fan of organized religion and church policies, I do not see the
necessity in driving faith (which is something different) into extinction. I don't turn my back on a person based on them
being Muslim, Jewish or Hindu or whatever else just because I was born to acknowledge and accept the teachings of Christianity.
Preservation of a person's right to religious practice should be defended just as much as anything else in the Bill of Rights.
Abolishment of religion would be a violation of individual rights. There is already a separation of church and state that
was installed to protect the church from the state just as much as the state from the church. I believe regardless of quirks
that each religion has, within each lies a necessary structure. I acknowledge a supreme creator of everything and address
him as "God" and under the United States Constitution, you don't have to and in fact you also may take wherever
I put the word "acknowledge" and replace it with the words "believe in" as you wish but please understand
that there are people who respect God more than any human being walking the earth (all kidding aside, cops, judges, lawmakers,
friends, family, spouses, soldiers, other military personell and the President of the United States are all human beings).
That being said, these are not people who will obey any state law that mandates violation of their respective holy scripture.
Thus, disallowing ALL speech, literature and acts regarding a person's religious views in society will be met with opposition
by these very same people, many of whom are positions of power in their own right. Unless there was a campaign to make it
seem that admitting to be a Christian, Muslim or Jew or whatever else is shunned and not to be done among the in-crowd turning
the in-crowd itself against any acknowledgement of God, then it would be easier because it's just not cool to believe in that
"silliness" anymore. We are who we are meant to be with regards to faith just the same as national origin and all
the cultural stuff that surrounds that and it is what helps shape the individual. The people who kill over religion are, always
have throughout world history and always will be a fanatical minority. As a special footnote, those who go on a mission to
abolish public expression of religion into extinction are in a sense religious fanatics because of how fanatical they are
about shunning all theism. Also keep in mind that by supporting any aspect of a person who does not dismiss the Holy Bible
or any other holy scripture as bullshit, you are supporting all aspects of that person even if they don't coincide with some
if not all aspects of you... But FEAR NOT! Non-coinciding does not necessarily have to equal conflict of interest. Uninhibited
sex and science bless you.
