Literally shoved down our throats? It's a matter of fact that most people don't use ObamaCare. I certainly have never used it.

Yep. One who did not have any health insurance of any kind...did they like paying a penalty? That is force.

Separation of church and state is guaranteed by the First Amendment. DT is sworn to protect the constitution of the United States. Ergo, this plan would be breaking the President's oath of office. It'll be interesting to see what the SCOTUS makes of the legal challenge that's sure to follow.

Render to Caesar what is God's. Oops!


So, do unto others as you would have them do unto you, blessed are the peacemakers, love your neighbor, though shalt not kill, are all based in judeo Christian teachings. That is now the source of all evil.


No one is recruiting for their flavor of religion. Law cannot alone stabilize a society. Law, hand in hand with generic J/C tenants is required.


Interesting, type 'judeo' and a red line appears, right click and the choices do not include 'Judeo'. Huh?

Equally unacceptable.

Anything related to religion at all should be confined to elective Religious Studies classes.

It has always been legal to pray in school.

If they want any more than that we can justifiably eliminate any prospect of school vouchers for private and church schools.

I haven't watched it because I'm afraid I will be too alarmed that worse and more crap is going on in DC than we--I almost don't want to know that religious zealots may be controlling the government even more than we know.

Rather seditious to try to wipe out what the Founding Fathers planned for the country. But, as the US becomes more secular and diverse, they would have a more difficult time turning us into Iran.
I watched it.

My takeaway was “ The Family” uses religion as a tool for influence, power and $$$.

People have been using religion as a tool, since just about forever.

That I completely agree with. I have picture proof that they would rather teach Allah and Mohammad over the American Revolution and history.

There's a difference between learning about different religions, and being taught that one religion is the right one and all the others are wrong. No public schools in the United States are teaching that Islam is the one and true religion.
