    Another random fact, the philosophical underpinnings of the First Ammendment are Medieval in origins, outlined by St. Thomas Aquinas.

    I had 13 years of Catholic schooling. I am familiar with Thomas Aquinas. It wasn't until I got to private Catholic all-boys prep school that I was taught any serious theology, though.
    Who wants to try a bottle of merc's "Extroversion Olive Oil?"

    Here's the difference between you and me: you're a misanthrope, Im not. I despise the masses, but instead of cynically declaring my superiority over them, I actually seek to save them from the masses.

    Another joy religion brought into the world, the respect for human life and persons.

    If I did, it was technically a joke, though I always enjoy a beer with an SP.

I think it would be more effective to take as much power away from the government as we can, and leave it to do things that have nothing to do with personal morality.
    Exactly. If it weren't in the state's power to enact laws prohibiting certain substances, curtailing reproductive rights, censoring certain speech all because it offends their religious morals I wouldn't care. Politicians could go on and on about god all they want and I wouldn't care because they wouldn't be able to do anything. But as it is in their power to do those things I have a problem with allowing religion near the government.

    Alturism of course stemming from religious concepts of self-sacrifice. So nice try on that one.

    Where did I say I was superior? I am not different, I am not special, we are all made of the same decomposing organic matter.
