So when a person tries to be inclusive, the Christians (perhaps just the more evangelical making the rest look bad again) take it as an offense to their minority faith.
Remember that the founding fathers of your faith chose to pillage many customs and traditions from the old religions.
Do not get your panties in a twist just because someone wants to include all faiths. Is it such and offense to not put your faith before everyone else?
To push and press to get a Merry Christmas because you did not feel catered to? Nobody kissed your ass? Pretty pathetic.
Do you know how many times God is mentioned in the Declaration of Independence? Once.
Just so nobody thinks that I am taking it out of context:
“When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the
political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the
earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle
them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes
which impel them to the separation. ”
Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God, that is much more than just God. That is is the equivilent to god, leaving all faiths open. IN fact Nature’s God coule be interpreted to be much closer to Pagans than Chistians. Funny thing isn’t it?
How many times does God appear in the Constitution? Zero.
How about the Bill of Rights, is he there? Nope.
How many times does God show up in the Articles of Confederation? Zero.
For a nation that some feel was founded on God, the supporting documents just aren’t there.
Now a country founded on the belief that ALL should be able to practice the religion of their choosing, that is all over the place. The First Amendment does a good job if putting that out there for us.
