    The Ten Commandments were in court rooms not because of religious importance but because they were the foundation of law. The Pledge Of Allegiance is to the flag and country, not God. These two have less to do with religion and more to do with honor and patriotism. Tell me how that forces you to believe in God, or maybe it's because you don't want to pledge an allegiance to the country or follow basic law. I'm an old guy and I still remember those who didn't pray during school "prayers". No one looked down on them or gave them a hard time. This country moves farther and farther from what it was founded on as time passes. We need to get back to basics and you don't have to be religious, or even believe in God to do that.

    The 10 commandment are a christian based list nothing more. It is still religious based period. The allegiance is still practiced most everywhere without the line" under god" in it.

    In AZ and MT I had not seen the 10 commandments hung anywhere.

    I insist that everywhere the 10 Commandments are held up as a foundational code of laws for the American Republic, that the foundation of all written codes of law be included as well.

    1. If any one ensnares another, putting a ban upon him, but he can not prove it, then he that ensnared him shall be put to death.
    2. If any one brings an accusation against a man, and the accused goes to the river and leaps into the river, if he sinks in the river his accuser shall take possession of his house. But if the river proves that the accused is not guilty, and he escapes unhurt, then he who had brought the accusation shall be put to death, while he who leaped into the river shall take possession of the house that had belonged to his accuser.
    3. If any one brings an accusation of any crime before the elders, and does not prove what he has charged, he shall, if a capital offense is charged, be put to death.
    4. If a Builder build a house for someone, and does not construct it properly, and the house which he built fall in and kill its owner, then that builder shall be put to death.
    5. If a man give his child to a nurse and the child die in her hands, but the nurse unbeknown to the father and mother nurse another child, then they shall convict her of having nursed another child without the knowledge of the father and mother and her breasts shall be cut off.
    And the other 277 laws of the Code of Hamurabi.
    When they "Nudge. Shove. Shoot.",
    Don't retreat. Just reload.

    For those of you that have a problem with Christianity just remember by a wide margin most of the founding fathers did not. The same ones that gave you the 2nd Amendment. Never the less Gods love and forgivness were for "who so ever". John3:16 For those that refuse his grace that is their right.
    By faith Noah,being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear,prepared an ark to the saving of his house;by the which he condemned the world,and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith Heb.11:7

    Holy right wing, Batman, I thought that 2A covered everyone, including Democrats, of which I'm one. Does this mean I have to renounce my 2A rights? Not on your Batmobile will I do that!

    Which set of The Ten Commandments should we put back in the courtrooms since there are at least 4 different official major versions.

    Religion, like politics, is a subject which discussions usually break down into no win arguments. Everyone is entitled to their beliefs. My main point here was that those suiting over the signs would probably file suit against a religious sign being posted. It's a two way street, if you're going to have the one then you're going to have the other. They don't want anything religious shown in public but they do want to push their own agenda of non-religion. As I said, you can't have it both ways.

    I thought your main point was that all atheists are wacky; at least that was strongly implied by the title of your post.
    In any population you have a bell curve with extremes at both ends, with the majority - moderates - in the middle. This is true of religions, ideologies, and yes, even gun owners.
    Is that particular group of atheists a bunch of wackos in the same sense as a PETA person who would have you put to death for giving a rat a dirty look?
    I don't really know.
    What I take issue with is that it appeared you put all atheists at the extreme far left - the wacky side - of the bell curve; this is not a true or fair characterization.
    So there, I have admitted that there are some "wacky atheists".
    Can you admit there are maybe just a couple of "wacky" religious people out there as well?
    I can - I've known quite a few.

    (Oh, I was a bit confused by "It's a two way street...", "you can't have it both ways."; since a two way street does go both ways and a one way street only goes...)

    Reading my post leads me to believe me that being retired is leading to being retarded - too much time on my hands - I think I should find something constructive to do.
    Maybe get out to the range.

    Agree?
