There are People Advocating for Freedom From Religion

To liberal folks, religious freedom means no public free expression of religion at public events where "we the people" are gathered. Their way establishes atheism, secular humanism, secularism --at the expense of a faith in a Supreme Being --which is no one religion but generic to most religions in our country.

Their way has religion police snoopervising and intimidating people at every public event --no prayer at banquets, at graduations, at gov't meetings, in schools, before games, etc. etc. etc.

No public manger scenes on public property--ultimately no angel decor, maybe no Christmas trees --ultimately no national religious holidays of Good Friday, Christmas, and Thanksgiving.

The people will feel led to pray, or say, "God Bless America!" or sing the 2nd verse of the national anthem, and the "wall of separation police" will be RIGHT THERE to march them off to jail or to slap a lawsuit and a fine on them.

Don't they have anything better to do than be such pains in the rump! ?

As for people "like you, Barb" being only 7 per cent of population according to one blogger--Not really. There are many more than that --count orthodox Jews and devout Catholics --and the 1/3 of Republicans said to be evangelicals -- (Did you know that only 13 percent by a recent poll want govt' healthcare to pay for abortions?)

We are prolife; we believe in God and free expression of faith; we believe in religious institutions being allowed to follow the Bible by their interpretations (with some limits --say on polygamy and other currently illegal pagan religious practices); we believe in traditional definition of marriage and no other; we believe in the Ten C's with some modification re: graven images and what we think was originally intended by the verse (preventing idolatry, and perhaps the tendency of artists to idolize man-made creations, other people and self?)

The Christians believe in Jesus as Son of God, Savior, Resurrected, Miracle-worker, Teacher. And we believe in His Great Commission--to preach the Gospel and make converts in His name --to tell the world about Jesus and how He came to save us for Eternity.

"God is not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance and have eternal life."--the Bible
