They might as well worship cows. They sure as hell aren't worshipping Christ.
 
2013-04-08 11:18:51 AM
Meaning 66% of Americans don't... I'm OK with that.
 
2013-04-08 11:24:32 AM
Which one?
 
2013-04-08 11:29:52 AM
I don't think they thought their cunning plan through...not that they ever have.

James!: Which one?


The correct one.
 
2013-04-08 11:38:37 AM

James!: Which one?


The one that follows the version of the Bible written a short 1600 years after Christ.

Angry Drunk Bureaucrat: James!: Which one?

The correct one.


Ah, so snake handling.

I say this doesn't go far enough.  The pledge of allegence should be replaced with 5 minutes of speaking in tongues.
 
2013-04-08 11:46:14 AM
And roughly the same number of Americans gave a big-ole "thumbs-up" to our previous administration during the entirety of its term.

You'd better be handling the right types of snakes, tho', you heathen!

So 33% of American's think this makes 'merica better than them muslin nations?
 
2013-04-08 11:53:01 AM
So one-third of Americans don't believe in the 1st amendment.  I bet most of those also vehemently defend the existence of the 2nd amendment.
 
2013-04-08 11:56:39 AM
Kind of hard to call them "Americans" in that case.

Diogenes: Kind of hard to call them "Americans" in that case.


But you can call them Republican.

66.6%, hilariously appropriate.

ThatGuyGreg: Meaning 66% of Americans don't... I'm OK with that.


I'm not.  That's offensively low.  I'm sure every one of those morons also spouts shiat about how the Founding Fathers knew everything and wanted us to be a Christian country.

Of course, they can never answer this question: why didn't they?  There was absolutely nothing stopping them from directly declaring that.  They did no such thing and made sure it wasn't possible to.

Not to spoil the irony, but with single digit precision, it would properly be rounded up to 66.7%

Only a third of Americans?

/in before they cry persecution, I suppose
 
2013-04-08 12:32:04 PM
It would be hilarious since about 90% of that 33% would be all pissed off if it did happen since the government would choose the "wrong" kind of Christianity according to them.
 
2013-04-08 12:32:20 PM
I believe in Odhinn and Thor. So that's one who doesn't agree with Christianity.

Why do a third of Americans hate the Constitution?  Why are they so disrespectful of the Founding Fathers?

Meh; it will never happen. Just like making English the official language won't ever happen or making the foot the official measurement won't ever happen.

2013-04-08 12:33:37 PM
that's disturbing

i wonder how that would break down by denomination, and if they'd have been cool with a different denomination then theirs as the official?

Hey, Take my vote back.
I thought the poll said O-Fecal.
 
2013-04-08 12:34:23 PM
Why would America need an official religion? How about you worship what you want and leave everyone else the fark alone? Does that work for you?

Hey, 18% believe that the sun orbits the earth. Another 18% believe the President is the anti-Christ. IOW, you can get a sizable minority to agree to any idiotic thing that strikes your fancy. Video at 11.
 
2013-04-08 12:35:19 PM
I'm not a christian and I don't see this as a problem.

We have official trees, birds, songs, pies, etc.  Adding religion is just another one of those things.

Now, someone who gets upset over these trivialities, now those people are the problem.

Flappyhead: Why do a third of Americans hate the Constitution?  Why are they so disrespectful of the Founding Fathers?


Stupidity, a lack of education, and willful ignorance, I mean we are talking about religious people here.

The real question is, how can christianity be the official religion when Bill O'Reilly told me christianity isn't a religion, it's a philosophy?

"The most effectual means of preventing [the perversion of power into tyranny are] to illuminate, as far as practicable, the minds of the people at large, and more especially to give them knowledge of those facts which history exhibits, that possessed thereby of the experience of other ages and countries, they may be enabled to know ambition under all its shapes, and prompt to exert their natural powers to defeat its purposes." --Thomas Jefferson: Diffusion of Knowledge Bill, 1779. FE 2:221, Papers 2:526

Republican's think their guns will prevent tyranny.......sad that their ignorance is what allows it.

As long as it's not 50.1% of 2/3rds of the states, we're good.

2013-04-08 12:36:34 PM
Which "Christianty" are they talking about? Catholics? Baptists? Jehovah's Witness'? They hate each other. We could be like Northern Ireland only bigger.
 
2013-04-08 12:37:34 PM
Hey - has anyone mocked the religious yet?

It's funny that the people who scream the loudest against Sharia Law in the United States would be ok with it with a simple name change, like calling it Jesus Law.

We already are, only less bomby and more derpy.
