This world has sure changed!
Once upon a time a person’s faith was respected, everyone knew that one’s religion was there own business, and the only thing you had to deal with was others attempting to convert you to their religion.
Now days you have all of these special interest groups and these so called watch dogs sticking their nose into private people’s business. Yes a bunch of people who usually don’t have a religion to speak of for themselves.
Separation of church and state wasn’t meant to keep religion out of state, it was meant to keep state out of religion, you know freedom! of religion, the way it use to be not too many years ago.
Then there is the naacp, in my opinion originated to defend peoples rights. Now this organization has swung to the other end of the pendulum stealing the individual person’s rights. The way our constitution was written and understood was about personal respect, and that was how it was. Sure you always have that element of ignorant knuckle heads who cross the line. Isn’t that true everywhere?
Now unfortunately all religions are being attacked, not by other religions, but by these very watch dogs who have butted in where they weren’t needed in the first place. If we would have been left alone the worst problem facing all religions in the US would be each other trying to convert each other.
Now today the buttinskies unfortunately aren’t just breaking down our personal rights, they are breaking down the very American fiber that has made the United States of America great, and a country that the world desires to live in, well, they use to.
Without freedom of religion for all, and freedom of the individual to live peaceably, this country is doomed to continue in the decline from a wonderfully great nation that we were, to a country that will continue to fall apart to the point that we will sell out to the highest bidder like a prostitute, and be forgotten. Left to be just another country with no reason to say:
"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."
Notice that word “ALL”
