Went to go watch a movie. I’m still here. I’m not saying “religious people are dumb.” I’m saying religious people are dumb because of this scenario.
*To answer your question… I imagine most religious people would be in favor of showing things that are in favor of their religion. To compare, would you have a problem with a friend coming over your house? No? How about an enemy? *
Well, in this country we don’t put religious symbols on public property. Why? Because it will offend those whose religion is not depicted by the symbol. And even moreso because of tyranny of the majority (note it’s only the majority religion that’s represented at the courthouse in Aluhhhbama… I don’t see any scientology shrines). If the majority had its way, we would have a National Church of Christ. Most people are christian, and most christians wouldn’t have a problem with that. But they’d all have a problem with a National Church of Islam. That’s why our founding fathers said we will have no establishment or support of religon by the state. Those guys were smart. The people yammering in Aluhhhbama are not smart. This shouldn’t be an issue of “like it vs. not like it.” Sadly, that’s what it comes down to about 90% of the time. You’d think people would be less myopic about what’s at stake. If you really think it is analogous to “friend vs. enemy” then this is quite sad indeed.
“Really, to tell you the truth, we was just plain, old country folks.” – Jerry Moore, Roy “Praise thuh Lord” Moore’s little brother.
Plain old country folk shouldn’t be sitting on a state’s supreme court. They should be at home or at church, where we can all keep an eye on them.
