It's always the left that brings it up.  Always the divisive ones.

Anybody: "The country shoudl do x because of y to bring us to the z-prosperity"
The Left:  "Do you believe in God?"
Anybody: "Umm, yes..."
The Left:  "Separation of church and state! You want us to bring back the dark ages and crusades!  End of the world!"
Anybody:  "..."

Anybody: "I want so-and-so to help me with this because of these qualifications."
The Left:  "Do you have any blacks in there?  Gays?  You have to have a black gay man whatever the qualifications."
Anybody: "Yes, one of the qualified people is black...  rolleyes.gif "
The Left:  "You don't have any hispanics!  Racist bigots!"
Anybody:  "..."

It's so funny because most of the time their arguments are exactly my arguments, they just don't realize their solution is the one fed to them and not the correct solutions.  They say that now this country doesn't seem like "their" country anymore... well... it's NEVER Felt like "My" country. Always PC... then the CPS, IRS, ATF, RoeWade, BrownEducation, Legislation from the bench, Affirmative Action, Social Security... only now that it's *kinda* *Sorta* going in the right track these squeaky wheels are all bent out of shape.  They need to learn how to share... haha, socialists needing to learn how to share... how prophetic.  They had 30 years or so in power to cure world hunger, homelessness, poverty, etc etc etc... they just make it worse.  
Giving fish and actively telling them govt is the only way to get fish.  One of these days I'll get my thoughts together on that and write a book.  Still would love to see that historical timeline so people can visually see it doesn't work and only damages.

Yes, no more religion... why do they keep making such a big deal about a person's beliefs... oh yeah... no tolerance from the tolerant ones for anyone that doesn't believe the lefts religion of the day... socialism, athism, scientism or whatever they need to use for control.

Man, I managed to lump a bunch of groups into one asinine writing.  wacko.gif

The right: We must do this because the morality demands it!
The left: But isnt will destroy a lot of jobs, and dont go against the separation betwen state and curch?
The right: You are an amoral  pinnko crazy commie!!!!!!
The left: ......

Im an evil pinko UN slave liberal commie

I don't think any of these "The Vague Society of Nebulous Meanies are going to take over the world and light up a planet" theories worry too much about practical considerations like that. It's all about rousing ill-informed, paranoiac fear, not making sense.

the right: Morals and religion are not the same thing, what's wrong with letting morals influence our choices?

the left: Stop forcing your faith on me! This is an abomination of the separation of church and state!!!! I am gonna sue somebody!

Can it be because the vast mayority of the USA republicans use Cristian morals has a base. No everyone follow all of your cristian codes. Adn triying to impose a moral code based in a religion, is triying to impose a religion.
