  •  SECULARISM UNDER ATTACK! (0+ / 0-)

    Ryan is a modern version of the same religious do-gooders that brought us Prohibition. The 18th Amendment in 1920 was thankfully repealed with the 21st Amendment in 1933. It's the only amendment to be repealed.
    The Judeo-Christian crowd are always finding ways to impose their values on a free society. FIGHT BACK!

    The Republican Party has been taken over by the corporatists and christian fundamentalists. The corporatists will force you into poverty, and the christian fundamentalists will force you to live under biblical law; daily gruel and scripture for all.

    •  Am I Free? (0+ / 0-)

      If the Religious Right imposes their Judeo-Christian values on me, am I a free man? How can I live under Judeo-Christian values without also believing in its religious doctrines? If I refuse to abide by Judeo-Christian values, will I be treated equally under the law?

      "[N]o man shall be compelled to frequent or support any religious worship, place, or ministry whatsoever, nor shall be enforced, restrained, molested, or burthened in his body or goods, nor shall otherwise suffer, on account of his religious opinions or belief; but that all men shall be free to profess, and by argument to maintain, their opinions in matters of religion, and that the same shall in no wise diminish, enlarge, or affect their civil capacities." Thomas Jefferson 1779
