ok heres the deal... i am for freedom of religion (or no religion). just dont infringe on my rights (meaning dont force your ways or religion on me) like forcing me to convert to christianity or making me go to bible study in order to stay somewhere... otherwise i wouldnt care if someone wants to worship god or pray to him so be it... i think tolerance of other cultures and religions (knowing there are many) should be also recognized too... unless freedom of religion only applies to...

Ok, Here's the deal...You're for freedom of religion (or no religion), so why should you be offended by Christianity? You live in a free country, so that you can express Your beliefs and opinions. What do you think THE RED, WHITE, and BLUE stand for?

Debra Hubbard i didnt say i was offended by christianity i simply said just dont infringe on my rights (meaning dont force your ways or religion on me) like forcing me to convert to christianity or making me go to bible study in order to stay somewhere... otherwise i wouldnt care if someone wants to worship god or pray to him so be it... i think tolerance of other cultures and religions (knowing there are many) should be also recognized too... unless freedom of religion only applies to...

If you take this offensively sorry about your little feelings BUT WHJAT ABOUT MINE? Do I not have rights ALSO? Why it that people just decide that God and our Flag is so offensive? Do they not have things to be thankful for like your freedoms? Sure I understand if you have not had someone witness how great God is and how much he blesses you when you serve him BUT HE DOES and IT IS TRUE wither you like is or not! I wish someone would share Christ love with you so you can know him too! ...

I wish someone would share Christ love with you so you can know him too! People in the USA are so spoiled! They think we are “ENTILTIED” to anything they want! Our forefathers served God and did quite well for themselves! Here is another thing I don’t understand? If you read this part of the Declaration of Independence:
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness”.
So we are ENTITLED to are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness! THAT IS IT! Not everything you want!
So If YOU don't like our Flag, Freedom, and God, PLEASE, PLEASE , PLEASE feel free to leave. Maybe you would enjoy it somewhere else OR maybe you will see how much you have that you SHOULD be thankful for!
Thank you to ALL of our soldiers who have served and do serve our great country! I pray that GOD watch over you and keep you safe!

We need to stand up for our country. Each day our rights are, sadly, slowly going away. With the advent of the new health care, our government is trying to overtake our independent decisions, thus forcing us to choose the government's way or pay the penalty at tax time :-(. We cannot stand idly by and be ignorant of going against our Constitution. If we love our country and appreciate our freedoms as we should, then we should stand up for her! We should all be patriotic enough to care for our country!

We were founded on these principles, which our founding fathers wanted for our country. If they were alive now, then how would they feel what we have done to our country? That is why going back to the fundamentals of our freedoms is crucial to becoming what we have been since 1776.

this country was built on freedom: Freedom to live freely to practice religion and cultures without interference. Our national anthems and patriotic tributes are based on our forefathers belief in God. No one has the right to erase that!

Boy I'd like to see anyone go to any other country and see if they remove anything in their country that would offend us. This would never happen. Also no country has changed their offical lanquage to make everyone happy. example if you live in Italy and don't speak the language ummm guess you're out of luck. (althou some people in Italy do speak English, they are not willling to learn 50 different languages to accommodate everyone) It's either learn the language or go home.

Comments come and go. What matters is the back of the book ( the bible ) God is glorified. This life we live is but a vapor, ( James ) like warm breath in cold air, gone in a second. They can try to blot out God every way they can. Makes no difference. We will all stand before Christ, so knock yourselves out. His arms are always open to all of us, always.

How, can you agree, with O'Reilly on guns, when he doesn't even know the subject? O'Reilly is one of the most misinformed reporters, when it comes to guns, I have ever seen...here are a few facts,,the shooter in Co used an ar-15 (a medium powered .22 not even powerful enough to hunt deer with in several states) The evil AK-47 was a select fire weapon, issued to the troops of the USSR from 1947-1956 when it was removed from service, and replaced,,it never was for sale in the USA. It's like...

It's like asking for legislation, against keeping a dodo bird as a pet. The AK-47 was replaced by the AKM (the vietnam weapon),,It is also a select fire weapon, not for sale in the USA. A very few may have been brought home as tropheys,,if they were,,they were inspected, cataloged and taxed. No AKM's either...so just what is it,,you think should be banned?? Oh well,,,it's long gone too,,out of service in 1974. Replaced by the AK-74. YEP, obsolete too. You don't even know, what type of weapon, you want taken away, banned, or whatever...moving on....a heavy weapon, is a cannon,,towed by a truck,,or airlifted by a helo,,,none of them for sale at walmart either..bazooka's,,yep,,gone for decades,,,so,,,whats the problem? Nothing, O'Reilly mentioned, is even made anymore, much less for sale...are you getting an idea,,as to the stupidity, of those trying to make laws,,against guns?? don't believe me,,,look it up...I am a combat vet, firearms instructor, range safety officer,,,and pistol range director for a private club.
