  •  Not to mention the crusaders! (4.00)
    I'm really sorry about this, but it pains me that even Christians of good will don't realize how threatening and repulsive this stuff is to non-Christians, and how pervasive it's becoming, a little more "acceptable" all the time.

    The higher comfort level with the blurring of separation of church & state, and with the de facto "Christianness" of the US, is very frightening to those of us of other (or no) faiths. Already my tax dollars are being used to fund "faith-based" organizations - ALL of which just happen to be Christian. Picture yourself as a citizen of a non-Christian country where the same was being done to you.

    •  Separation (4.00)
      of business and Christianity.  Just in the last 5 days I have heard of 2 savings and loan businesses whose owners considered these businesses their "church."  

      One of them was destroyed by a gas leak and 3 women employees were killed.  the owner said that he prayed with all his employess all through each work day and prayed with each customer seeking a loan.  He considered it his duty as a Christian to lead all souls to [his, I assume] belief.  

      then just days later I saw a savings and loan named "Thrift Savings for Christians."  I guess he doesn't want any heathens' money.  And that is in the Midwest.

      •  That's fine. (none)
        He won't be getting any of mine. Now how do I get back those Christianized taxes?
