There's a major thing I want to address about the religious majority here in the United States of America and it's something that needs serious addressing because the way these Christians are talking, not only have they severely failed in the education when it comes to science classes but they also failed horribly in history as well. It's mind boggling how anyone here in America can be so damn uneducated and completely oblivious about their own country's history, let alone science. This post is not about science this time but the history of the United States itself and how these dumbasses are failing not only themselves but their country as well.
The major gripe I'm referring to? Whenever I refer that we should tax the churches because they're interfering with politics and constantly preaching politics at the pulpit like they're NOT supposed to be doing, there's always Christians that chime in that the churches are allowed to because it's their religious freedom to do so because, get this, they say it's because America is a Christian nation. When you correct them by letting them know it's a secular nation rather than a Christian nation and inform them it just happens to have a lot of Christians in this country and that you assure them it's still suppose to be secular regardless, they have more defenses even though they're all false.
You know it as well as I do if you're an atheist. "Well, In God We Trust is on our money and our national motto because we're a Christian nation". Which is partially true, In God We Trust is on our money and our national motto, but it's not because we have a Christian nation, it just proves that around 60 years ago, our members of Congress were part of the Christian Majority and were afraid of communism and thought that you couldn't be communist if you were Christian (which isn't true, you can be a Christian communist, I know a few actual real communists in the American Communist Part and American Socialist Party even (socialists) that are insanely religious and base their stance on that because of the teachings of Jesus Christ)). The only thing that the national motto of "In God We Trust" and it being on our paper money proves is that we have a Christian Majority ruling with their religion, nothing more than that.
Additionally? The "In God We Trust" also means that the US Congress did something unconstitutional by favoring one religion over another, they're not supposed to do that and so far, our government (again, Christian fucking majority cannot be mistaken for Christian Nation, just a Nation with too many Christians) has failed to repeal this unconstitutional bullshit and I find it even more offensive when Christians use the "In God We Trust" fucktardary in their excuses that nobody is a true atheist otherwise we wouldn't be spending our money nor accept it. Sorry dumbass, but I prefer to have a place to live and food in my fucking belly, you god damn assholes. I'm forced to use money to pay for things that have your stupid ass religious prayer on it against my will. If I had the choice of using a currency without it, I would, so until then, I'll continue using ink to mark off "God" from all my money and pencil in "Science" in it's place. So if you've ever used that argument, go fuck yourself with a cactus then get a proper education because you're severely stupid or ignorant. However, I hope it's ignorance because that can be fixed, stupidity, however, is forever.
Then there's this. "The Declaration of Independence says that all men are created equal and they're endowed by their creator, this is referring to God because the founding fathers were all Christian, they didn't mean for it to mean any other religion, just Christians." Let me get this straightened out for you dumb fucks. The Declaration of Independence was written by Thomas Jefferson between June 11th and June 28th of 1776. He wrote as "Laws of Nature and Nature's God", however there's nothing in the Declaration of Independence that mentions anything remotely about Christianity.
Christians often try to claim to Thomas Jefferson was a Christian, in fact though, he was not. At the time of the writing of the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson used language which shows him to be a deist, not a Christian. Deists at the time often referred to Nature's God". Now, don't get me wrong, Thomas Jefferson did believe in a creator, just not God and Jesus Christ, not by a long shot. He even went as far as editing the bible to remove all mysticism and superstitions from Christianity, you can even read The Jefferson Bible, he wasn't a Christian, but he edited it for you guys anyway. He even removed all the "miracles" that Jesus allegedly performed as well.
Jefferson aimed at laissez-faire liberalism in the name of individual freedom, He felt that any form of government control, not only of religion, but of individual mercantilism consisted of tyranny. He thought that our civil rights have no dependence on our religious opinions, any more than our opinions in physics or geometry.
Where the preamble declares, that coercion is a departure from the plan of the holy author of our religion, an amendment was proposed by inserting "Jesus Christ," so that it would read "A departure from the plan of Jesus Christ, the holy author of our religion;" the insertion was rejected by the great majority, in proof that they meant to comprehend, within the mantle of its protection, the Jew and the Gentile, the Christian and Mohammedan, the Hindoo and Infidel of every denomination.
-Thomas Jefferson, Autobiography, in reference to the Virginia Act for Religious Freedom
Believing with you that religion is a matter which lies solely between man and his God, that he owes account to none other for his faith or his worship, that the legislative powers of government reach actions only, and not opinions, I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should 'make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,' thus building a wall of separation between church and State.And now for my personal favorite from Thomas Jefferson that Christians will learn to hate him for.
-Thomas Jefferson, letter to Danbury Baptist Association, CT., Jan. 1, 1802
The whole history of these books [the Gospels] is so defective and doubtful that it seems vain to attempt minute enquiry into it: and such tricks have been played with their text, and with the texts of other books relating to them, that we have a right, from that cause, to entertain much doubt what parts of them are genuine. In the New Testament there is internal evidence that parts of it have proceeded from an extraordinary man; and that other parts are of the fabric of very inferior minds. It is as easy to separate those parts, as to pick out diamonds from dunghills.
-Thomas Jefferson, letter to John Adams, January 24, 1814
Christianity neither is, nor ever was a part of the common law.
-Thomas Jefferson, letter to Dr. Thomas Cooper, February 10, 1814
In every country and in every age, the priest has been hostile to liberty. He is always in alliance with the despot, abetting his abuses in return for protection to his own.So as you can see, separation of Church and State also means keeping the god damn Christian Religion out of politics as well. Yes, this means that Christianity was never meant to take over the country, it was never meant to be allowed to deny gays their rights, etc. To be honest, you Christians are actually violating the US Constitution every single time you drag your religion into the voting booths, whether you're using your religion to vote on a bill or using your religion to pick your politicians, either way, it's a violation of the US Constitution which means you Christians are violating the United States of America. Christians using their religion to vote based on their religion alone are traitors against the Constitution and are therefore, domestic enemies of the US Constitution. This also translates to all those Republicans being anti-American terrorists too. Oopsie! That's what you and them both get for being domestic terrorists.
-Thomas Jefferson, letter to Horatio G. Spafford, March 17, 1814
And you can claim you Christians aren't domestic terrorists all you like, but I still don't have my fucking rights as a gay man to marry the person I love. Hell, with all the gun nuts throwing a huge bitch fit over gun regulation, you would think they were being denied their rights to marry the person they love, but they're not. All that aside, since I can't get married because of the Christian Majority dragging their fucking religion into the voting booths, I'm going to continue to call all Christians terrorists. You can either accept the Terrorist label or you can accept the Nazi label, it's one of the other. Why Nazis? Because it wasn't just the Jews that were imprisoned and killed in the camp, it was gays too. People actually begged to get the star of david instead of the pink triangle when thrown into these camps because the Jews in the concentration camps would also beat the living fuck out of the gays in there. So yes, either Terrorists or Nazis, either or, your pick.
And don't you fucking dare try to claim that you as a Christian are like being in Nazi Germany if you can't continue to oppress us gays and keep us from marrying. Yes, that's right, you're the fucking oppressors. The one's living closest to being in Nazi Germany right now are actually the gays. You should hear your religious leaders as they preach. Know who else spoke like that? Adolf Hitler.
The writers of the Constitution weren't all Christian, a great deal of them were atheists and deists to be brutally honest with you and most thought Christianity itself as being vile, evil and detestable. They saw religious leaders of Christianity to be brutally dishonest and vile as well. The 10 commandments are not in the constitution either, only brought that up because I've heard a dumbass mention it.
The whole Separation of Church and State bit also includes Separation of the Christian Church and State. Christianity is not an exception. Lastly, I'll leave you with this. "The Constitution" does not equal "The Sacrement".
Learn your history and secondly, learn science. You guys are failures when it comes to education and you are in some serious need of superior education to cure you of the insane amounts of stupid on your shoulders.
Know what was a Christian nation at one point in time? Germany under the reign of Adolf Hitler.
