Too Much Time
Too Much Time
these are tough times.Unemployment is
high, the misery index is high, prices are high, and taxes are high.People are struggling just to survive.People are doing whatever they can do to make
ends meet, to keep a roof over their head and to feed their family.And yet some people seem to have just too
much time on their hands.
If times are
so hard, how do people find the time to protest a church cross which is part of
a silhouette used on an official city logo?
over 19,000 members of the FREEDOM From Religion Foundation in Madison
Wisconsin that have nothing better to do than go around looking for any
religious reference or symbols which interfere with the doctrine of separation
of Church and State.
Now I am all
for keeping the instruction of religion or the establishment of a “State”
religion out of this great country of ours, but does the mere mention of
religion or the mere inference of a religious symbol constitute a threat to
anyone’s pursuit of happiness?
The FFRF finds this
cross to be a Steubenville slippery slope to establishing a state Religion
Seems to me
these people have too much time on their hands.
also is suing a restaurant in Columbia, Pa. because they offer a 10% discount
to patrons that bring in a church bulletin.Hey, I guess they have a point…I know I feel much better knowing church
people have to pay full price, but…damn…who has that much time?
The FFRF is
suing the city of Woonsocket, Rhode Island for the removal of a cross on a WW I
and WW II memorial.I guess they have a
point, I know whenever I travel through Woonsocket and see that cross it just
makes me feel damn uncomfortable.I am
just curious…who has that much time?
Baptist Church has 40 members with enough time on their hands to protest
anything homosexual in this country.They protest at funerals of gay people and even protest funerals for our
soldiers lost in battle because…heck I really don’t know why…something about gay
Where do they get the time?
Westboro Baptist Church preaching the
gospel of hate
thousands of people camped out in public parks protesting against rich
folks.They want rich people to give
them money.Where do these people get
the time?I guess they are unemployed,
but are there jobs in these public parks?I’ll bet some of the illegal immigrants in this country that are taking
the jobs these protestors don’t want will be part of the 1% in ten years.
don’t mind protests.The freedom to
protest is one of the things that makes this country great.Protesting keeps people on their toes.Protesting helps eliminate injustice.
Get the Hell
out of Viet Nam!
for going to church? Sexual orientation? Rich people? A cross on a statue?
they get the time?
post was written twenty-six people, twenty of which were children under seven
years old were senselessly murdered in a Connecticut elementary school.The following headline shocks me beyond
Church Says It Will Picket Vigil For Connecticut School Shooting Victims
claim these murders were Gods work to punish our country for its support of
homosexuality.If they are allowed to
protest anywhere near the State of Connecticut it will be an abomination.
