Christianity is not a religion...

it's merely a philosophy

The Fox circus of clowns never fails to entertain.

Regardless, we are incrementally winning the war of making those silly, small-minded supersticionists who believe in all these pathetic human constructs cower in fear and shame.
Someday, when our Noble Idea is secure, man will have no need for "God" or religion.
Until that day, we must make them very uncomfortable in their homes and churches.
Excellent link .
Forward !

O'Reilly is correct here, government is allowed to display religious objects, they just aren't forced to make you participate or practice a religion.

1st amendment is freedom to practice a religion, not freedom FROM religion

Seems like you are one of those small minded simpletons who think that this planet would be better without religion.

If you actually think that, you are an idiot.

We're talking about Bill O'Reilly, the only man in America who would dare "write" books about Lincoln and Kennedy, but display his name in much larger type on the covers than the icons he "writes' about. AN EGOTISTICAL IDIOT.

We march forward to a day when Man will no longer need the false embrace of an imaginary "God".
Our Long March FORWARD will lead us to a time where people rightfully place their trust in The State.
The State will provide us with all our essential needs.
And we will serve the State.
And the God Myth will no longer be neccesary.
Forward !

While I do not agree with government "establishment" of a religion, this is essentially true.

"Christianity" as that word is commonly used, is not a religion, in the truest sense of the word. "Catholicism" is a religion within the broader confines of "Christianity", as are "Methodism", "Baptism", "Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints", "Church of Christ", and "Seventh Day Adventists".

Just from my, more or less random, selection of denominations - their beliefs vary WIDELY and they are often in conflict, even with their common core of beliefs. That is what makes America great. Nobody says any of these are more "right" than others.

There is nothing wrong with public expressions of a generic faith - as long as no one feels compelled to do anything other than be respectful of others. There is nothing wrong with Federal holidays for Christimas and Easter.

Nobody is harmed by this. Jesus' core philosophy was how great the world could be if everybody was nice to each other for a change. There's absolutely nothing wrong with that.

Find any more cross resembling brick patterns to get faux outraged about lately? Any college bands playing amazing grace recently that made you all pissed off?

Wrong. Catholicism, Methodism, Baptism are sects of the religion of Christianity.

Is Islam a religion? Buddhism?

It's about displays of religious symbols in the public square by government.

Government actions are no longer a political matter?

I actually agree with Rex here, Christianity is a religion. There are groups within the Christian faith but Christianity is a religion based on the life and teachings of Jesus Christ.

I will admit I didn't watch the link but the fact that the govt endorses a religion doesn't bother me, just as long as people of other religions are free to choose a practice a different faith.

The fact though that christians are attacked bothers me. I mean our official language is english but you are allowed to speak spanish, french, and german why can't religion be this simple as well. You could argue the govt endorsed the english language.
