America was not founded as a Muslim nation, nor a Hare Krishna nation, nor an atheist nation. No, it was founded as a Christian nation -- and we have Christian prayers.
If you want Muslim prayers, there is a flight leaving soon for Iran. If you want Hare Krishna prayers, there is a flight leaving soon for India. If you want atheist prayers, there is a plane leaving soon for Russia.
Remember the old saying, "When in Rome, do as the Romans do!" -- and when in Christian America, etc.
God bless, have a wonderful, blessed day,
Actually it isn't a Christian nation, but I can see why that would be important to you to think that. This country belongs to all its citizens, including all the faiths and groups you mentioned. So anyone who doesn't want to pray the prayers you do just need to leave the country? Wow. This isn't just your country. I am a citizen the same as I guess you are, and that makes it my country too. Wow.
And you have the audacity to use that signature after you spew hatred and intolerance at anyone who isn't just like you and call others ignorant. How sad it must be to be you and live in such denial and with such anger and sense of superiority that you feel if people don't do things your way and go to your church...if they don't pray the exact same prayers you do..that they should just leave because this is your country and no one else's. If you ever wonder why I don't believe in God, read the post you wrote that I just quoted. Perhaps more of a reality is that if you want the kind of country you just described you would need to be in a country with an official religion and a nice big thumb to squash non-believers under.
