Holy Shit!

Hello, once again it's been a while since I've written anything here. I usually wait until something inspires me to spend time typing. Mainly because I suck at typing so whatever it is had better be important or at least interesting to me. So what is it this time you may ask. It's this whole thing with Christianity and we need to get our country back to God and so on and so forth. Let me start by saying that I have no problems with what people believe or how they decide to spend their Sunday morning or anything like that. I believe in live and let live.
If going to church and believing in God helps you get through the day I think it's awesome. Everyone needs something to believe in. I just ask that you don't try to shove it down anyone else's throat and don't ring my doorbell and try to get me to believe in it or ask me to give you money to build another abomination that is as far away from the teachings of Christ as you can get.
From my understanding the United States was not founded as a Christian nation. It was founded as a place for religious freedom, thats why the people came here in the first place wasn't it?
The FOUNDING FATHERS were smart enough to know that religion and government do not mix. Thats why there is supposed to be a separation of church and state! Also "Under God" wasn't added to the Pledge of Allegiance until 1954.
I'm not saying that religion is a bad thing. I'm just saying that it's not my thing. I think that I've lived my life as a good person and I try to treat people as good or better than they treat me. I also think that any belief system that causes wars or that is responsible for ruining the lives of children by causing them physical harm and mental anguish is probably not such a healthy thing to believe in.
That's just me and my opinion. You can take it or leave it, I don't care. I hope that you all have a great day and continue doing what makes you happy.
