Subject: RE: Lyr Req: For the Godless March on Washington
Denise, Since this was supposed to beio free godless (secular) nation in the first place, and since the xians want to shove god down the throats of anyone who doesn't believe, what do you expect? You see when this nation was founded, it was founded by people who had a state religion which was expected of everyone to believe the same.
Thomas Paine was a well known Atheist who was one of the founding fathers, and most of the others were diests.
While we don't have the right to take the reference to a superior being out of poetry or popular music, we do have the right not to listen to anything that offends us, and if the word god offends us then we have the right not to have that word used in conjunction with the government.
You see, in popular music, U2, Petra, Jars of Clay, and especially Creed are popular Rock bands, but those of us in the know don't have to listen to them, and most of us don't due to our non-belief.
I for one am hoping the godless people of the country will make a re-appearance next year so our cause won't die.
You see our leaders make statements that the press take as the truth, and the press then has to be set straight, and most of the time the setting straight doesn't have the impact the lies told by our leaders do.
Here's hoping to furthering this.
