forgive me LJ, for it has almost been a year since my last post.

 From my fundie Aunt:

In 1952 President Truman established one day a year as a "National Day of Prayer." In 1988 President Reagan designated the First Thursday in May of each year as the National Day of Prayer. In June 2007 (then) Presidential Candidate Barack Obama declared that the USA "Was no longer a Christian nation." This year President Obama canceled the 21st annual National Day of Prayer ceremony at the White House under the ruse Of "not wanting to offend anyone" BUT... on September 25, 2009 from 4 AM until 7 PM, a National Day of Prayer FOR THE MUSLIM RELIGION was Held on Capitol Hill, Beside the White House. There were over 50,000 Muslims in D.C. that day. HE PRAYS WITH THE MUSLIMS! I guess it Doesn't matter if "Christians" Are offended by this event - We obviously Don't count as "anyone" Anymore. The direction this country is headed should strike fear in the heart of every Christian, especially knowing that the Muslim religion believes that if Christians cannot be converted, they should be annihilated. This is not a Rumor - Go to the website To confirm this info: ( http://www.islamoncapitolhill.com/ ) Pay particular attention to the very bottom of the page: "OUR TIME HAS COME" I hope that this information will stir your spirit. The words of 2 Chronicles 7:14 "If my people, Who are called by my Name, Will humble themselves And pray, And seek my face, and Turn from their Wicked ways, Then will I hear from Heaven And will forgive their Sin and will heal Their land." We must pray for Our nation, our communities, Our families, and especially our children. They are the ones who are going to suffer the most. .. If we don't PRAY May God have Mercy. IN GOD WE TRUST.

awesome.  so this was my response:

Where to start?

Firstly, check out these bible verses:

Leviticus 19:18
Leviticus 19:34
Matthew 22:35-40
Romans 13:8-10

The USA is not, nor has it ever been, a "Christian Nation". The UK is a "Christian Nation". The Anglican religion is the state religion, and the Queen is its primate, through her Archbishop of York.

The USA has no official religion, and it does not support one religion over another.

Barack Obama, never said that the USA was "no longer a christian nation", the end. He said that we are "no longer a christian nation, at least, not JUST. we are also a jewish nation, a muslim nation, a buddhist nation, and a hindu nation, and a nation of non-believers"

in fact, he misspoke, and meant to say the clearer:

"Whatever we once were, we are no longer just a Christian nation; we are also a Jewish nation, a Muslim nation, a Buddhist nation, a Hindu nation, and a nation of nonbelievers."

He DID cancel the ceremony at the White House -- which is FAIR, as religion has no place being on public display within the government.

So, what happened on September 25, 2009? Well, a Washington, D.C. area mosque sponsored a "day of Islamic unity". I don't see a problem with that, do you?

Religion has caused enough problems. Perhaps we need to start electing atheists!

US Constitution, Article IV, Paragraph 3:

The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.

I got a version of that e-mail from at least 4 or 5 different people. I don't even want to get into it anymore. Mixing government and religion results in people being burned at the stake.

I just don't know why people (christians) care so much. God's greatest gift was free will. To force others to become christian to against god's will. Go in peace, be like Jesus, lead by example.

<3 Love it. I've been getting into a lot of "debates" on my facebook page lately, most of them relating to the Islamaphobia that's getting stronger & stronger lately.

People still read e-mail? Oh and no worries, I assumed you abandoned this place like 90% of my FL. I'm just really stubborn, and this place has gone to hell with the agressive adverts.
