This article made its way to the front page of Jacksonville Florida’s Sunday June 24th newspaper: http://www.jacksonville.com/tu-online/stories/062407/met_179684416.shtml
Setting aside all notions of this paper’s history of slanted-ness, this is the furthest I’ve seen this paper push its way up to the line and probe the philosophical nature of the population. My big question is who made the decision to put this on the FRONT page and for what goal and purpose?
I’m so sick of religious people claiming to be under an irrational attack from the non religious. Does it just not occur to people that displaying religious icons on public/government of any type is very UNconstitutional? Or is it that they really do know that, and they have only one option and that is to retaliate with crazy things like “OMG we’re being oppressed!!”
If your beliefs are so fragile that you think they will DISAPPEAR if I tell you to not put them in a courthouse, or that its ok for gays to get married, or that you shouldn’t be so generous with “merry Christmas”, then maybe your beliefs are all they were cracked up to be, and maybe…. just MAYBE…. you really don’t believe them.
