“Frank’s Atheistic Ramblings: Jon Stewart”:http://franksatheisticramblings.blogspot.com/2005/12/jon-stewart.html
A quote from “franky’s”:http://franksatheisticramblings.blogspot.com/ blog:
bq. Yes, the long war on Christianity. I pray that one day we may live in an America where Christians can worship freely! In broad daylight! Openly wearing the symbols of their religion…. perhaps around their necks? And maybe – dare I dream it? – maybe one day there can be an openly Christian President. Or, perhaps, 43 of them. Consecutively.
The ‘war’ that most Christians are fighting is not so much to attain the freedom to worship as it is maintaining that right. There are those who are blatantly antagonistic toward Christianity and its followers and who would love nothing more than to outlaw the practice of religion (all religions) as an outdated, outmoded, and archaic system. Unfortunately, a lot of Christians don’t do themselves any favors in their approach to preserve their rights and react against these voices. I personally think that Christians should only take the religious battle to the government and the courtrooms when actual rights are being lost, rather than over what I consider to be petty arguments about the pledge, the verbiage of American currency, or what to name what have been traditionally Christian holidays. I do think Christians should be involved in politics, but I think Christians have a bad habit of choosing their battles unwisely.
