As a global objective, I believe separation of church and state should be of paramount importance.

That very much includes the US.

[-] 2 points by GirlFriday (21771) 1 year ago

Yep!!! I strongly agree.

Why can't we just lynch conservatives of every stripe, regardless of religious affiliation . . . such a fine secular approach would solve the problem, wouldn't it?

[-] 1 points by shooz (26599) 1 year ago

I thought that was what we are already doing.

It's not working out so well for the 99%.

[-] 1 points by ZenDog (20391) from South Burlington, VT 1 year ago

I believe that's because we're giving the Christian conservatives a pass.

It's all about C vs M these days and both of them are getting puffy pants over it.

Violence IS the problem.

Separation of church and state.

Don't need to be violent about, just do it.

I have to admit though, talking to fundies about it is an exercise in frustration. I wonder if secularists in the Muslim world feel the same way?

are you kidding? What thread is this again?

He'll be frustrated for the next 3 years, but the religion that put him there extends far from the Middle East..........But yeah, I musta got lost for a second there. It's been a long day.

can you say martyr?

[-] 1 points by shooz (26599) 1 year ago

Yes I can. Martyr.

I still say lynching might be a little too much like what they want.

How about we flood all those places in the World where they hold sway with the works of Richard Dawkins.

[-] 1 points by ZenDog (20391) from South Burlington, VT 1 year ago

I shall have to read up on this Dawkins individual - but somehow I doubt it may be all that affective. Big ideas just don't seem to fit well in such small minds . . .

A separation of church and education would be effective there.

The children must learn in spite of their parents.

I am pretty much at the point in the movie where Anikin flips out and starts killing jedi.

[-] 1 points by ZenDog (20391) from South Burlington, VT 1 year ago

that's nice - and just when I've lost my light sabre . . .

embrace the powerrrrrrr of the darkside.

[-] 1 points by ZenDog (20391) from South Burlington, VT 1 year ago

that's just silly

[-] 1 points by quantumystic (1710) from Memphis, TN 1 year ago

How can you master the light if you can't master the dark?

[-] 1 points by ZenDog (20391) from South Burlington, VT 1 year ago

yeah-ya - I'm still working on mastery of self - you better watch it or Yoda will have you standing on your head in lotus forever . . .

perhaps the time has come for a magister populi.

Islam = Catholic - 600 years
but even the Catholcs from 1450 did not want to kill themselves to get into heaven
and they had torches - not bombs

Would it be too farfetched to guess that the Muslim Brotherhood being in power had something to do with his conviction?
