Going Global

Post by DB Cooper » Wed Aug 24, 2011 1:32 am

Hello from the USA!

I forget where I read about you guys. But, I'm so glad Ireland is no longer giving the Catholic Church free reign.

I hope Ireland becomes more secular! We're trying it over here, but even though James Madison and Thomas Jefferson wrote that the best thing to happen to religion was its "Total" separation from the state, we've got loonies running all over the place trying to claim the USA is a Christian nation.

They never give up.

Welcome DB.
Pope says atheists pick & choose their morals. Correct. Today I will be frowning on child abuse & not having a problem with homosexuality.

Hi DB!

So... Where's the money?!
As yet I have not found a single case of a terrestrial animal which fertilises itself.

writing to Ferdinand & Isabella, urges the Christianization of 'natives'

Hope the US follows Spain today & frees itself of religious infliction.
