    Everyone (sane ones anyways) want peace.  We want to live together without all this bologna hanging over us daily saying do this, pay this, wear this, say this, go here, this place is prohibited, this place is for the ?, go to school, don't go to school, take this medicine, don't take that medicine.  This theory says this, this theory says that, this one is right, no this one is right... did you forget the first part of the op?

    What is it really? I know the simple answer will be because this side or that side wants total control of all the people a communist nation... excuse me, I mean a communist globe (and don't get me started on communism as if democracy, liberalism, capitalism,socialism, imperialism, Catholicism, and whatever "ism" there is all have the same underlying principal no matter how heavily clothed it may seem, they want total control so don't be fooled by a liberal, democrat, republican effort that speaks volumes about what is good for the whole where there is no possible way that what is good for one is good for everyone else.

    Religionist get a beat down for laws prohibiting certain things and telling you you "must" do this or that blah, blah, blah and then use "force" if need be to achieve their desired outcome... praise God...no I mean, praise Allah, I mean Jesus, I mean, I mean, I mean... this is the right path, take this one and it will all go away... don't bitch at white rabbit.

    Then the anti-religionist, you can't tell me this, I can do that, you can't do this, you should chose your own way, if you chose god's way your an idiot, you can't think for yourself, go to school, get an education, go to college, learn how to make money to support a happy lifestyle, say what you want... don't bitch at the white rabbit.

    Then the government, you have to pay this, you can do this but you must pay for that, if you don't like that then leave, but before you leave you have to pay to leave, you need health insurance, you need to send your children to school, you have to support your local government and pay your taxes, you have to pay for your home you have to pay for the law makers to make laws that you don't even know exist until you get fined for it, forget about trial by jury, we have a speedy more cost effective approach to it, what? 

    You have the freedom to chose but that doesn't include the freedom to not pay taxes that are supporting war and criminal activity? Oh wait a minute, yeah ya do but when it goes unchecked for so long, it's pretty friggin hard to reverse, ever think that America would fail disastrously without proper checks an balances?  Yeah it was the point of being an American democratic society. You were supposed to do your part to ensure that we would not fall into a socialist society, but it looks like a rouse of "religious/political" affiliation has shattered the foundation of the every law whether Judaic or governmental law and this is a problemo.

    It's a religious foundation that went against its own principal by incorporating political law into their "covenants".  The very thing that Jesus sought to destroy was "satanic (political law) influence in a god fearing community". 

    Now don't go all, oooh satan blah, blah blah or where do you get your information or see that is what religion does or that's why there is separation of church and state rhetoric bull shite.

    I can piss off a perfectly tame cow with a few simple words, don't bitch at the white rabbit.

    Have a nice day.

      Well I can see one of those isms that doesn't have a snow balls chance in hell of gaining total control in the US.  Guess which one.  Tip; it's the only ism listed that is not a political system.  In the next couple of years, you never know, any one of those other isms listed could gain total control in the US. smile

      Now what was the original question?  Oh yeah, why can't polar opposites shake hands?  The other side's hand is too cold. big_smile

      Let Prince Moses' people go. lol

        They certainly can. I have plenty of friends with irrational belief systems. The ones that can take a joke get made fun of and the ones that can't - we agree not to discuss the subject. Because we both value each others friendship more than we do fighting about it.

          They must really appreciate you, in all your self-consuming egotistical glory, dismissing their beliefs.
