Don't get me wrong, I am a devoted Christian and give my heart and soul to Jesus Christ, but at the same time, I think this infringement on the rights of those practicing other faiths could put the right to practice OUR faith at risk someday. This proclamation forces Christian beliefs on the residents of that town. I think this is a bad thing, because Christ shouldn't be forced on others through government, but should be evangelized in a way to bring people to the faith, rather than throw it at them and drive them further away. I mean, how would you feel if you lives in a mostly Muslim town and they made a proclamation saying, "Allah is the greatest." Sure, it would be accepted by most of the town, but THEN Christians in that town would argue in support of seperation of church and state. What are your opinions?

|Well I am partul... hear me out thow. I dont support putting this act into order no do I bilive we should force religen onto people but... I do support the end of the world Deppends on my mood sometimes the sooner the better I say. Blow it all up but well there are souls to be saved and this is not the way to go about it. Anyways I have to show my dad this he is going to "piss an ant" as we would say down here.
You peeps watch out people like that are going to bring the end of the world. Its probably going to be the church that makes it happen. I would go into more detail but I gatta git.

|jonny, i agree with you..
however i believe there is a balance, God had placed government over us, for the purpose of justice and order (even if both are lacking, he said this of the pagan roman government, and probably means it of the american one too ... there is balance... you could say seperation of church and state, but many of our laws which are good, like not to murder or steal and based on the christian belief system... to fully seperate church and state would require to get rid of such laws
I think the idea of seperating church and state can go to the extreme of it being an idol, and also be an excuse to stiffle the working of God..
However on the other hand, it is wisedom, because man often takes the things of God, when he has power, ignores God and uses that power.. many christian churches, organisations, countries in the past have abused many peoples in the name of God.. done hideous crimes in the name of God...
I don't want to get into politics, i am neither a democrat or a republican. but a bible believing christian who knows that that hearts of man are flawed and lives that are lived in submission to Christ and God's will do wreck havoc on society..
|Angel-- What an interesting thing to say:
If that happens, how will the scripture at Psalms 37:11 be fulfilled?
