Former Governor Huckabee Would Force His Religion on You at Gunpoint

The first amendment guarantees us the right to freedom of religion. You can choose from the big four, and any of their sub-flavors; or choose any of the lesser known; you can choose neutrality, or choose no religion at all.



Yet there are those who don't like this idea; and prefer you not get a choice.



Like Governor Huckabee for example, who seems to think we should all be one flavor of Christianity. Of course it's the flavor he has chosen; and he would be just fine with… Continue

Congress Goes to Recess - Secular Successes and Failures So Far This Year

Congress at Recess As nonbelievers I think 'separation of church and state' issues tend to show up on our radar much more easily than it does for believers. Too few believers realize that separation of church and state is what allows them to practice their flavor of Christianity. So many who push for more Christian influence in government don't seem to realize that they might end up disagreeing with the flavor that comes to power. If only more believers realized this, I think we would have so many more… Continue

[UPDATED] Thousands of Tax Payer Dollars to Add Engraving to Capitol Visitor Center

How irresponsible and wasteful! No matter which side of the political teater-totter you sit on, most of us aren't happy with the current financial situation; both in the economy and in the government. I'm no financial whiz, but I know that right now the government should not be spending thousands (or more likely tens of thousands) of dollars of tax payer money to add a few engravings to the United States Capitol Visitor Center (CVC) (… Continue

Kingsville: King of Ignorance

Kingsville Texas is the county seat of Kleberg County; in January of 1997 county commissioners unanimously designated "heaven-o" as the county's official greeting.



Okay, I know that's not really breaking news; but I've been on a bit of a separation of church and state kick, so when I stumbled on this I thought I'd share.



So what is wrong with using "hello?" Well it turns out that Leonso Canales Jr. thinks "hello" is a negative greeting due to its… Continue

What's Good for the Goose is Apparently Not Good for the Gander

More and more we see religious groups trying to push their agenda into laws, politics, and the government. Too many in the general religious populous think God has been kicked out of government, and they want him back in there. But what happens when the roles are reversed, and government proposes to push its policy into religion?



The church cries 'foul' and sputters quotes about 'the separation of church and state' and then holds a rally to gather support to stop the… Continue

Partisan Preacher: IRS Should Revoke Florida Evangelist’s Tax-Exempt Status

No re-write today, just a straight pull from the Americans United for Separation of Church and State site.



More evidence has come to light that the Internal Revenue Service is cracking down on religious ministries that violate federal law by endorsing or opposing candidates for public office.

What Should Obama's Priority be After Inauguration?

There are several of these "suggestions for the new president" sites out there, and its tough to keep track of them all. The main ones I've seen though are:

change.gov

change.org

opposingviews.com



Weather-or-not chiming in on these sites will make a difference, or weather-or-not the ideas will even make it to… Continue

JFK Had the Right Idea

John F. Kennedy, Sept 12, 1960 Today I stumbled upon a transcript on the National Public Radio site. It was a speech made by John F. Kennedy, given to a group of Protestant ministers a few months before the election. JFK was a devout Catholic, but he was also a big proponent of the separation of church and state; this speech has some excellent excerpts that exemplify this. JFK was the first Catholic elected president, and during the elections other religious groups (primarily the Protestant group) were concerned… Continue
