Why should I be obligated to a man (or GOD) I do not know? Why is my life, as good as it is, dependent on the beliefs of others?

Spin's question is central to whether a country has to promote or tolerate religion. The First Amendment to the US Constitution puts religion outside of politics. There is no obligation to believe in God or worship anything. There are some countries which base their law and politics on religious beliefs. You may be incarcerated or even executed if you don't go along with it.

Spin!!! What is wrong with you? Isn't there enough room on the Religion forum? Or is it that the people are boring you :)

"Come on Lily you have to stop all this fornicating, you know Christ died for your sins. Why do you keep on doing it?"

"I know He died for my sins, i just think i should make it worth His while"

Wrong forum - should be under 'Mythology' aka Religion.

Wiliam: No. You are wrong.. Are you telling me that Romneys campaign had nothing to do with religion? That religion, particulary the christian religion, has no influence whatsoever in US politics?

No Spin, your questions may require the answers No, but it does not therefore follow that asking "Why did Jesus die for me?" is a suitable topic for discussion in the Politics forum.

It's pretty obvious to me that Obama is an atheist, although he swears blind he's a christian. Just like any other lawyer, expediency overrides truth.

Spin writes, "Secularism: another word for fascism." Spin falls back on the old prop of the defeated - abuse.

Do you make a lot of mistakes, Spin?

William: Really? So why does secularism refuse to acknowledge the beliefs of those opposed to secularist ideologies? What proof does secularism have that it is the one and only valid state of society? Given the latest troubles, I think secularism has a hard time condoning itself...

Spin asks, "So why does secularism refuse to acknowledge the beliefs of those opposed to secularist ideologies?"
He is confused and therefore confusing.
Secularism argues against beliefs in God; it doesn't 'refuse to acknowledge' them. It refuses to acknowledge that they are true, basing itself on reason and evidence.
It doesn't argue that "secularism ... is the one and only valid state of society."
Spin attacks straw men arguments, because to grapple with the real arguments that secularism proposes is a little bit more demanding.

Spin says:
William: Secularism has no concern or appreciation for any belief, culture or tradition other than itself.

Spin, do you really think that your mere unsupported assertion is going to win any argument?
