So… you like America?
I really feel that would fixed 99% of our problem.
So do you wish that there were a state religion? Do you think the country would be better if every citizen were forced to believe Jesus died for their sins? Religion doesn’t solve any problems. It perpetuates the laziness of those who decree all is included in god’s plan. It creates banners which we wear into battle; slaughtering individuals sporting a different banner.
Why should anyone like the government? It is merely a monopoly of force. I love this country, but I hate my government. No man has the right to tell anyone else how to live, and that is exactly what our POTUS does.
“The United States has been narrowly saved from lethal terrorist plots in recent years — or so it has seemed. A would-be suicide bomber was intercepted on his way to the Capitol; a scheme to bomb synagogues and shoot Stinger missiles at military aircraft was developed by men in Newburgh, N.Y.; and a fanciful idea to fly explosive-laden model planes into the Pentagon and the Capitol was hatched in Massachusetts.
But all these dramas were facilitated by the F.B.I., whose undercover agents and informers posed as terrorists offering a dummy missile, fake C-4 explosives, a disarmed suicide vest and rudimentary training. Suspects naïvely played their parts until they were arrested.
This is legal, but is it legitimate?”
You cannot expect government to solve the problems that it creates.
The Ideal Government
This picture kind of makes me wonder why some people feel the need to make others question their own faith. If they’re happy believing in God, why can’t you just let them be happy?
EDIT: I probably sounded like a bit of a hypocrite there, since ive sometimes spoken against some parts of religion because of the anti-gay stuff but i guess its like.. you can believe whatever you want, as long as you aren’t trying to encroach on someone else’s right to believe what they want.
.. am i making any sense? or am i just making things worse? i dunno. D:
There have been more acts of violence committed in the name of religion than under any other banner. It is a blight on humanity. The only true road to peace and prosperity is the completely free flow of people, goods, and ideas.
