Changing laws to fit decisions, deciding that homosexuals can marry, getting rid of the Ten Commandments everywhere in the U.S.A.. Is everything offensive to everyone except those who would like to hold onto traditions and beliefs? Seems odd that it's mostly Christians that are being zeroed in on and discriminated against. You're thoughts?

Thanks for a well thought out answer.
I appreciate you taking the time to write it.
70% of the country identifies as christian. that hardly makes christians a persecuted minority.
Exactly, Cathylynn - 30% of the country is the part experiencing persecution!
The Constitution does not talk abut marriage.
Religious displays have been a part of American life since the founding of the country.
Name calling seems to be the answer to most of the messages coming from those that espouse this drivel.
I haven't called any names. I said that Christian ways were bigoted. And they are. Just displaying religious icons does not make it ok to do so. It is offensive to many. The constitution governs people's RIGHTS! Try reading it.
When the constitution overrules God's Words, it's in trouble & we as a nation will suffer! Title VII protects both Religion & Sex NOW (2012)! How is the Govt going to rule against itself? We'll see which one takes precedent but my guess "LG
hold on. arent you the old guard, too? i thought only one persona allowed in questions and forums? how many people are you in forums????
As Picard said, "Make it so".
"The fabric" may not be that the state has any right to decide who or what gets married.
My belief is that nothing is "moral" or "immoral" in America, these days.
"Right" and "wrong" concepts have been lost.
Yes, because it has always been right for some, wrong for others. If you have enough money, you can be right almost all the time!
Understood. M.T. Dremer.
That's a good question at the end of your comment.
Are no "morals" held through thick and thin?
Not killing, not stealing?
We do both - execute and tax (robbery by law)
What's an eternal truth?
Thanks for your comment
The only eternal truth is that Life goes on...
The only eternal truth is "Death is inevitable" & your "reward" will be given!
Interesting take on "the fabric" that once underpinned the culture of the U.S.
"Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other." John Adams
The state oversteps in many ways.
So who are all these clowns bombing people? Bet every single general goes to church. Whats moral about cutting taxes for rich, while poor starve? In fact, what is so christ-like about america? When has it ever been?
Agreed Sandie! Is 5:20 "Right is wrong & Wrong is right!"
Great response Andrew!
I love it! Can I quote you? It's time to get everyone into the 21st century!
Thanks for you well thought out comment.
You've made some good points.
If you look at history and what Jesus said - poverty and starvation will always be with us. As will violence.
Thx for your opinions.
