    Feel free to post comments, rants, or even personal attacks. It simply shows your wish for taunting if you do the latter.

    You can say anything you want here. But if you get stupid I reserve the right to point it out, call you lots of inventive names and laugh like hell.

    The Wide Awakes

    By now you have heard that a judge in California has ruled that saying the Pledge of Allegiance in Government Schools is Unconstitutional.

    If you haven't, well, welcome back to civilization.

    What, exactly, constitutes "religion"?

    Is it going to church?

    Well, my grandpa has always said that going to church no more makes you religious than going into the garage makes you a car.

    Is it believing in what is in some book?

    I don't think so, because I know people that believe in those UFO books and nobody is claiming they worship aliens.

    No, religion is the WAY one lives their life and the creed to which one stridently adheres. The most rabid people I know are religious extremists and atheists, but, as Mark Twain once said, I repeat myself.

    You see, atheism, not to mention secular humanism, is a religion. People that adhere to the belief that there is no creator are, in effect, adhering to a religious code.

    Religion doesn't mean that one fervently believes there is a creator, religion IS the belief system through which one lives their life. It affects the decisions they make day to day and moment to moment.

    Recently another judge ruled with this very argument.

    "Atheism is [the inmate's] religion, and the group that he wanted to start was religious in nature even though it expressly rejects a belief in a supreme being," the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals said.


    Even the Supreme Court of The United States of America has said the same thing:

    The Supreme Court has said a religion need not be based on a belief in the existence of a supreme being. In the 1961 case of Torcaso v. Watkins, the court described "secular humanism" as a religion.


    So, with that little tidbit out of the way I ask you this;

    Is this not proof that the ACLU is promoting one religion over another?
