GUEST,guest from NW BS: Ten Commandments on Public Property? (438* d) RE: BS: Ten Commandments on Public Property? 06 Apr 05

what is so hard for you people to understand? america is not a "christian" nation. it is a nation that forbids its gov't to establish a state religion. it (in principle) accepts all religions. so if we don't have a state religion, that means either NO icons of religion on public, tax-funded property or an assortment of religious symbology from many different religions to accomodate all views.
personally, i like the "no religious symbols" option. keep your religion in your church, your heart, your home, your family, talk about it with interested friends but keep it OUT of public buildings. but if you insist that the 10 commandments must be displayed then you should fight equally hard to display quotes from the koran and other alternative texts or else you're just a prosthelytizing (sp?) christan jerk trying to force your beliefs on me. and i don't like it!
