    What happened to freedom of religion? This country's founders fled suppression of their religion in England and found a land where they could freely express their faith. Our forefathers wanted to protect the right of all people to freely express their forms of faith - not suppress religion. "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof. There will never be an establishment of a "national religion" but Americans must always have the right to freely express their religion.

    Islam kids: blow yourself up & receive the fruits of 72 virgins
    Christian kids: bend over & receive the fruits of god's love

    a tough choice! 🙂

    Whatever happened to the separation of Church and State? If they need spiritual care then they need to go to a church OUTSIDE of the government offices that my taxes support

      Nothing has changed. Why do you think Romney (from MA) got 90% of the Utah's primary votes in 2008?

      It's called, the "subjugation of others!" Without it, religions can't exist!
