ManicProgressive:   Liberals aren't anti-religion. What you see as anti-religion is the majority of America trying to protect their own rights.

 

 

 

Exactly correct. Liberals are not anti-religion at all, they just don't want others trying to make their religious views public policy. People can worship the God of their choice, however they want to, they can worship a can of soup if they like and I won't object, but leave me out of it. In other words, butt out of my life with your religion.

Honestly, nobody cares about your religion until you use government to impose your religion on others.  And the ones who are trying hardest to do that right now are conservative evangelical Christians.  Definitely not the mainline Christians.   It's certainly not mainline Christians arguing against abortion rights and against marriage equality.    Not the majority of Jewish people or Muslims, either.  

 

Liberals aren't anti-religion.   What you see as anti-religion is the majority of America trying to protect their own rights. The majority of America is pro-choice.   The majority of America is also pro-marriage equality.    

 

I know many want Christianity to remain culturally supreme in the US, because that's all they have ever known.  But people who have been raised in minority faiths or without faith know that you all will be just fine as Christian numbers start to dwindle.  Well, with one condition.  You will only be OK if you uphold both the establishment and free exercise clauses of the First Amendment for everyone, not just conservative Christians.  The goal here is to maintain American Constitutional precepts despite changing religious demographics so that all people, regardless of faith or lack thereof, can practice as they want to.

That would be all those Republican Laws that force people to obey some GOPer's religious fanaticism.

Conservatives hate Jesus because he preached the Good News of LOVE, and Repubs just gotta have someone to HATE.

 

The Right has replaced the Jesus of the Bible with SuperGod who will swoop down and smite all their enemies - enemies being those who want truth, justice and security for ALL God's children.

 

No room in any Regressive heart for that.

Liberals are the primary source of anti religious initiatives. Conservatives support religious inititives, so just the opposite is true. 


What, exactly, is an anti-religious initiative? I've never heard of such a thing.

The truth is the Republican Party literally shredded the Constitution during the impeachment of Comrade Trump.

Wow, that has got to be one of the most one sided, incorrect, and hypocritical responses I have seen for a while now.

Conservatives support Christian supremacy. It shouldnt be conflated with religion in general.

Liberals support freedom for all religions. And freedom from all religions. Just like the Constitution says.

 

Dont forget all the conservatives who protested over a mosque being built near Ground Zero.


It is very hard to separate the hypocrisy from the stupidity in the subject of this thread.
