Everybody believes in something. What they believe should not disqualify anyone. What they do with that belief....is a different story.


I believe I'll have another toke

I don't think it matters. What worries me more is linking the war in Iraq to a mission of God. If you ponder that enough, it makes us no better or worse than those we condemn.smoking

I would have to agree with you if that were the case.

LOL Can I help you there, Robert? Looks like you just fell off your chair!
laugh laugh laugh

But seriously, it would make us no better or worse than those we condemn. I am not aware of her linking this to a mission of God. Where did you hear it, and was is just a quote taken of context?

Regarding creationism... I am not a creationist myself, but I DO AGREE with her that it should be taught in schools. We teach every other religious and cultural belief in the world, it would be rather ignorant not to expose our own children to some of our own nations's beliefs.

The idea is to expose them to these various beliefs for the sake of education and teach them how to think not what to think.

Exactly. I am fairly religious, but my religion is personal, and not to be forced upon anyone. Or any country, for that matter.

Well put, and nice to see you Harry. tip hat

Something Palin said - it started with the troops - something I fully appreciate. She carried it a bit further than that. It, in technical terms, gave me the heeby-jeebies.

I watched the speech with avid interest. Did not pick up on it, but I'll look again. Could be I wasn't looking for it.
