Interesting how no one in the BWW thread on this bill mentioned the preceding Ramadan bill with the nearly-identical wording that inspired this...

namo, your reliance on dreamy things has ripped my last nerve from that spot just below and to the left of my tailbone, thrown it on the ground, spit on it and used a stiletto heel to grind it into the dirt.

while we may not kill in the name of religion, Americans do hate in the name of religion.......no religion is truly that different than the next.

If people worldwide would deal with the REAL issues on this planet than this sort of nonsense about what we should or should not say during this time of year, we might have a better planet. Republicans and Democrats alike act like idiots this time of year.

Good good point orangeskittles.

What if this article had taken place when the bill about the Muslim religion was being introduced? Would the thread have been called "Congress is trying to kill Ramadan"? What would have the response then been?

I see the advantages of such a bill, it seems like it is being applied semi-equally anyway. Has a bill of the same effect been introduced on the part of the Jewish religion? If not, I suspect that is not far away.

I couldn't care less WHAT religion it is. I'd like to know why my tax money is being used to pay these idiots to carry on about ANY religious topic while they're supposed to be my CIVIC representative.

There are times I TRULY hate this system.

I think it's mostly just a way to get attention OFF other issues.

I remember days
Or at least I try
But as years go by
They're sort of haze
And the bluest ink
Isn't really sky
And at times I think
I would gladly die
For a day of sky

drama - I think that's what all of it is, all of the time. We certainly shouldn't know what they're really doing - which is lining their pockets, and continuing their own power base.

And that has NOTHING to do with what party they're with - it'a across the board.

I happen to have a friend, Martin who's a 92 Jewish guy and always answers these political questions the same way--"So, ... nu? Theyr'e all corrupted. It's ALL ABOUT $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$....who's giving, taking, hiding, spending, not spending, (with a Jackie Mason accent!!).
I love this guy, he used to hang around with Fred Astaire and Georg Gershwin when he was a teenager.
