Separation of Curch and State by OurHandOfSorrow Separation of Curch and State by OurHandOfSorrow
"Don't like the separation of church and state? Then move to Saudi Arabia and quit complaining!"

The separation of church and state is there for a very good reason. Why? Because there are tonnes of faiths out there, making it law to only follow one would be a violation of loads of peoples human rights.

But if you really don't like that fact, you could always move to Saudi Arabia. If you're a religious fanatic and believe religion should be imposed in law, you'd love it there! :P

As a Christian, I don't mind the separation of church and state, just as long no one tries to prevent me from following my religion.

With 'church' she meant 'clerge', that is generic.

If you want to include religion in general yoiu should talk about clergy, because Church is referred to Christianity only.
I agree on what you meant with this, anyway.

I'm a proud liberal, and I DO support state atheism. My reason for doing so is simple: the First Amendment requires that if the government acknowledges one religion, then it must acknowledge them all. Now consider just how many different religions(and how many different sects of different religions)exist. Obviously, it's a whole lot easier to simply acknowledge no religion at all than to have to acknowledge hundreds of different religions.

That is the stupidest thing I've heard this week.  Everyone who has read your comment can feel their IQ drop.  May God have mercy on your soul.

First off: I don't believe in God, so I don't give flack what he thinks about my actions, and I take full responsibility for my own soul.
Second: If you wish to call me and my comment stupid, please provide at least one legitimate reason for doing so. You and I are both entitled to hold opinions, but with that right comes the responsibility to explain our opinions to others, as I believe I did.

You said you support abolishing religions because it's inconvenient to acknowledge them.  If you're not a troll, I pray for humanity.

I said nothing about abolishing religion:if you want to buy land and build a church/temple/mosque/synagogue on it-fine, it's your land. What I'm advocating is no official government endorsement of religion-as stated in the First Amendment.

Just because they're not throwing bibles at minorities in the streets doesn't make them any less religious.

What about the fact that they obsess about removing religious symbols from public?  The star of David from a Holocaust memorial?  Or how about cutting the cord on a Valedictorian for mentioning her religion?

Some forget that separation of church and state does not mean that anyone has the right to prevent someone from praying when and where they wish. It is a two way street -- just because the majority of people wish to pray at say a football game and you do not does not mean that they have to avoid praying --- just means that you stand there doing nothing. The "state or school" is not forcing you to pray. When students, etc... are not allowed to pray they ARE being forced to do keep from praying.

I have not heard of schools in my country not allowing children to pray in school. The thing is, there's a huge difference from not being allowed to pray in school and actually basing laws that will affect everyone on religious rules.

Funniest part is that lately people have been coming up with the most hilarious reasons why religion is "oh-so-tr00-and-awesomeh!!!1111!" My personal favorite is the argument that the Bible is proof that god exists. If that's true, then Lord of the Rings is the proof that elves, dwarves and hobbits exist. Or comic books are the proof that if you're caught in a radioactive explosion you gain the ability to turn into a huge green rage monster instead of freakin' dying. I think you get the picture.

Yeah :/ Thankfully I live in a country that's (mostly) separated from religion. Unfortunately the church of England have tried their best to stop gay marriage from being legalized.

The Church of England really doesn't have a say in "traditional marriage" if you consider why there is a Church of England in the first place.
