ArkAngel: Cythraul: She explained that courts ordered religious displays at public buildings to be removed "because we listen now to the less than 1 percent in society that feels this way."

I think the constitution was set up to protect the rights of all people in the country, not just 99 percent of them. I may be wrong.

I just find it amusing that now it's the opposite side of Farkers defending the "1%"

/lol



Didn't realize that 1% owned 85% of America's religions.

I have a dream....

No, seriously. I have a dream. I have a dream that Rupert Murdoch will one day appear on Fox News and reveal his secret identity to be...Stephen Colbert. And the entire Fox News Universe will have been just one major, elaborate hoax.

It could happen. Has anyone ever seen Murdoch and Colbert together?

Leeds: pciszek: Diogenes: She should hope to never be in the minority. Perhaps she forgets why the Puritans fled to come here.

Actually, they came here to practice religious discrimination. Which they did, hanging witches, Quakers, and Baptists.

And that's still the dichotomy we have here today. In the 1600's two groups moved to America in droves: the Puritans and the Quakers. The Puritans came here so that they could fight against religious freedoms and the Quakers came here to establish religious freedoms. One side promoted tyranny and the other promoted consensus and freedom from oppression.

America is still suffering from the legacy of allowing those a$$hole puritans to have any say in the new world.

To dumb it down even more: Quakers are the Mystics and Puritans are the Skeksis.


My favorite version: America got England's Puritans and Australia got England's criminals. Australia got first choice.

How about we make a "1%" deal with the Right. We'll agree that the 1% have no rights and we'll let you keep your mangers and baby Jesus' and we get to pass an 80% tax rate on the other "1%"

dletter: Here should be the rule for putting something of a religious nature on public/government property: "If someone else put an equivalent thing from another religion in the same place, would I be offended?" If the answer is "Yes", then, you shouldn't put yours there.


THIS! THIS! THIS!

I still remember the storm of controversy that San Jose had when they decided to put up a stupid (and I do mean stupid: it looks like a dino turd) Quetzalcoatl statue. A huge chunk of the controversy came from the "OMG, that's pagan!" people, with a lot of backing from the local churches.

These were pretty much the same people throwing a conniption whenever the subject of maybe, perhaps not officially celebrating the birth of Jesus came up. And i doubt that a single one of them realized the hypocrisy of their position.

/ Seriously, though... that statue sucks.

Citrate1007: I find it hard to believe that Fox News doesn't understand the 1st Amendment.........farking shills.


Oh, they understand the part that says Congress Can't Stop the Media from Talking, or however that goes. All the rest is just static. Something about religion and not coveting thy neighbor's manservant, right?

grokca: LarryDan43: serial_crusher: impaler: She explained that courts ordered religious displays at public buildings to be removed "because we listen now to the less than 1 percent in society that feels this way." [citation needed]

1) Christians are not 99% of the population

To be fair, she wasn't just counting "non-Christians". She was specifically counting people who get butthurt about religious displays enough to file lawsuits.
She still pulled the number out of her ass, and it may very well be greater than 1%, but it's got to be smaller than the percentage of all non-Christians. Most of us don't really give a shiat.

If not for those 1% fox would have nothing to talk about all month. Although, I suppose they could go back to Benghazi.

What would Christmas be like without the annual Fox War on Christmas poutrage?

It really gets you in the Christmas holiday spirit.

hillbillypharmacist: Fox News legal analyst Jeanine Pirro said the First Amendment prohibited government from preventing the establishment of religion - not prohibited government from the establishment of a religion.

That's the stupidest thing I've ever heard.


It that is their "legal analysts" then no wonder they are dumbfounded everytime courts rule against their favor.

"But the interesting thing about this is that the First Amendment has the Establishment Clause and it says there is no way that you can interrupt the establishment of a religion or prohibit the free exercise of religion," Pirro explained. "It doesn't give you freedom from religion, and that is what my objection is."

Because holy shiat, how can I properly enjoy Christmas unless every single government building or square inch of public land in my town is carpeted in Fake Plastic Baby Jesus and multicolored lights?

It was set up to protect the straight, white Christians, men more than women. Haven't you read your (Texas) history books?
