Sen. Allen would make church mandatory. God help us.

Allen said, "Probably we should be debating a bill requiring every American to attend a church of their choice on Sunday to see if we can get back to having a moral rebirth," adding "that would never be allowed."

Looks like the US is getting closer and closer to moral breakdown instead of moral rebirth. And people like Allen are the reason for this. In a country where freedom of thought is guaranteed to anybody by the Constitution senator who represents 6.7 million people suggests mandatory church attendance.

The US is a Christian nation and it always has been but getting too much out of religion is equal to banning the religion completely. Look, religious believes is the most private thing we probably have. Making it a matter of big politics is both immoral and outrageous. In Iran, where Islam is mandatory for everyone, people look for religious freedom above all. I hope we are not Iran.

Church going people, as Allen put it, are some of the most hateful and intolerant people in this country. "Mandatory" this. Here's an example of one of those lovely church going folk

Colorado GOP aghast at Klingenschmitt's act-of-God comment in baby's death

Source: Denver Post

Several leading Colorado Republicans lashed out Thursday against state Rep. Gordon Klingenschmitt, saying his act-of-God comments about an attack on a pregnant woman whose baby was cut from her stomach were "disgusting" and "reprehensible."

The lawmaker, who also is a minister, quoted the Bible in his "Pray In Jesus Name" program Wednesday and tried to link the crime to abortion.

"This is the curse of God upon America for our sin of not protecting innocent children in the womb and part of that curse for our rebellion against God as a nation is that our pregnant women are ripped open," Klingenschmitt said.

Among those who denounced the remarks: two fellow El Paso County Republicans, Laura Carno, who in January started a Facebook page called "Conservatives against Gordon Klingenschmitt," and former Rep. Mark Waller, whose used to represent House District 15 in Colorado Springs.

I'm far from an atheist, but, I'm increasingly turned off by religion in general and the "christian" religion in particular, and when I read a story like the one you posted Camelot, I'm convinced that Klingenschmitt's God isn't my God or anything close to it.

That's not the point Kbear. Making such statements and Governors like Pence signing a law that will allow businesses to discriminate based on religious beliefs shows a growing intolerance on the Right and a willingness to break down the walls that separate Church and State.

And then there's this ..........................

Quote:
I’ll make a bet with you. Two guys break into an atheist’s home. He has a little atheist wife and two little atheist daughters. Two guys break into his home and tie him up in a chair and gag him. And then they take his two daughters in front of him and rape both of them and then shoot them and they take his wife and then decapitate her head off in front of him. And then they can look at him and say, ‘Isn’t it great that I don’t have to worry about being judged? Isn’t it great that there’s nothing wrong with this? There’s no right or wrong, now is it dude?’

Then you take a sharp knife and take his manhood and hold it in front of him and say, ‘Wouldn’t it be something if this [sic] was something wrong with this? But you’re the one who says there is no God, there’s no right, there’s no wrong, so we’re just having fun. We’re sick in the head, have a nice day

Duck Dynasty Star Fantasizes About Rape And Murder Of Atheist Family At Prayer Breakfast

In my experience, I'd much rather deal with an ethical atheist than a "moral" Christian any day of the week.

Give us examples of what the non-church people are doing. Would it be anywhere near comparable? Or, is this just about blasting religions?

Is there a difference between the two? Ethics and morality are not mutually exclusive to any group. Nor is the lack of.....

It is not about religion and atheism. Both categories of people can be equally terrible and appalling. It is about mentally challenged people using religion as a pretext to violence and intolerance.
