Church of England calls for legal right to wear a cross | Mail Online

Church of England calls for legal right to wear a cross | Mail Online.

Next time someone tells you that there is not a “War on Christmas” or a “War on Christianity” from the left, shake your head at their denial and self-delusion.

Yeah, this is Britain, where there is no First Amendment. Yet our left has turned our First Amendment from Freedom OF Religion, to Freedom FROM Religion, where any hint of religion (read: Christianity) in a public forum is a de facto creation of state religion, which ofcourse, it isn’t. But it will be deemed “offensive” to have a Christmas Party, much like wearing a cross to your employment is now in Great Britain….

    Absolutely false, Craig.

    “this is Britain, where there is no First Amendment.”

    Yes. There also happens to be a state religion in England. Called the Church of England.

    “where any hint of religion (read: Christianity) in a public forum is a de facto creation of state religion”

    False again. Public forum is fine. Publically-OWNED land, venue, etc., yes, that would be wrong. No matter what religion. Putting the 10 Commandments in a court of law, for instance, would be wrong.

    “But it will be deemed “offensive” to have a Christmas Party”

    Um, no, not really. Individual companies have the right to do what they want. I had a Christmas Party at my squadron (shock of shocks, I know). This is more of the “oppressed-majority” crap that is beyond silly.

    Let’s remember an important thing that you “righties” keep forgetting:

    Jefferson: “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. . . . I shall see with sincere satisfaction the progress of those sentiments which tend to restore to man all his natural rights, convinced that he has no natural right in opposition to his social duties.”

    Wear a cross all you want, not gonna raise an eyebrow. Wear some Muslim cultural clothing, and that will get you put in prison in France, Australia…coming to America soon. Then how will the Christians react? Something tells me THAT would be okay…

    What is that word? “Hypocrite”?

    Odd that in the Country with a state religion, it is becoming more difficult to practice your state approved religion? Hmmm. Perhaps because of the open hostility to Christianity from the left…

    And a menorah, or a crescent, or a copy of the ten commandments is not an endorsement of religion by the “public”. And I am all to well aware of Jefferson’s out of context taken quote from a letter to a group of Baptists concerned with another denomination gaining state sanctioning. No where is it implied that a christmas tree in the town square is the equivalent of the ESTABLISHMENT of a state sanctioned religion in any form. Now where is that the equivalent of a state sponsored religion, where you are required to pray, or where members of a certain religion get preferential treatment over others…. like say in Iran or the Middle East where Islam is the overbearing and freedom squashing religion of choice. We have had Christmas Trees in town squares for a long, long time, and somehow people of other religions weren’t forced to somehow pray to the Baby Jesus and say Hell Mary’s…. Heck, we open Congress with prayers and there is a copy of Moses giving the Ten Commandments in the Supreme Court. It is almost like the current interpretation of constitutes a “state sponsored religion” is of recent origin….

    I am all too aware of the anti-Christian left mocking those people of faith in office for calling for prayers from the people for divine deliverance or guidance or blessing, much like leaders through out this country’s history have done. Everytime Barack Obama says “May God Bless You and God Bless the United States”, it must set your hair on fire, having the leader of this nation force his religious beliefs from his bully pulpit…

    And i disagree with the French law prohibiting the Muslim veils for women. I do however agree with laws that state a woman MUST take a picture of herself for her government issued ID, and she MUST show her face to a law enforcement or other government official when confronted. Ofcourse, to you and the anti-Christian left, ofcourse that is evil Christians being hypocrites or something. Whatever your fevered reasoning needs to be so you can sleep tightly in your hypocritical beds…

    “I had a Christmas Party at my squadron (shock of shocks, I know).”

    And according to you, you just violated the Separation of Church and State, especially if it was in any way connected to your Squadron, a government entity…. oh dear… oh dear… What would the ACLU think? I think I know the answer….
