Hello all. I just had a general musing on the likelihood of America ever living up to the promise of maintaining a wall of separation between church and state. I live in a country where it is considered protected speech for a shop owner to deny service to someone based solely on their sexuality since that conflicts with their religion's teachings, which to me shows that civil rights come after religious rights. What if the bible taught that black people were cursed by the mark of Cain and were lesser for it in the eyes of god (which the book of Mormon actually states), would the lawmakers pushing for the tragically ironic "religious freedoms" act back a shop owner denying service to a black person because of their religious teachings?

Religious nuts can try anything.

Churches and similar entities such as the NFL, get to do business tax free. How very nice. A shitload of injustice and they get a gift.

The constitution is full of religious connotation until it is written with better wording we are screwed for the separation of church and state. They will have you sware on a bible about that lol.


Yes, it's sad. Luckily, the upcoming Millinnial generation is starting to vote and they're much less religious than their parents.

By the way, this website has a bit of a learning curve, so here's some info, in case you need it.

For members who are open to dating, certain thumbnails and profiles have a heart symbol on them with a percentage. This identifies which members are open to dating, and the percent shows approximately how compatible others are with them.

You gain website points by answering all the profile questions and writing a bio, which also earns website points, and helps other members get to know you.

Commenting on posts and writing your own posts earns more points. At level two you can private message people, and at level eight you get an agnostic T-shirt.

If you want to date, the website uses profile algorithms to find member matches, so the more details one includes, the better the match.

Many people prefer to see a written profile talking about interests, hobbies, and backgrounds that can be quickly perused to find others with similar interests..

In case you didn't know yet, to find members near you, click on the "Browse" button at the top of the page, then on "Members," and enter your preferred search parameters.
Click on the "Discuss" button, then "Nearby" to find members near you also.
Or click on the "About" button at the top left of the page to find links to FAQ or the website tutorial.
Points are now being given to level 3+ members who chat. You can see chat rooms on the group main page or at [].

Thank you! I needed that information


weird trying to get my head round that 1
