    Yes. It's a violation of the principle of separation of church and state.

    :biglaugh: This involves both politics and religion. As soon as someone starts arguing the other side I suspect it will be moved.

    They were probably a silent minority. Speaking out against anything religious, even in this group of revolutionaries, was probably not politically or personally beneficial.

    This was my thinking. Words on my money don't have any effect on me so why would I care.

    I think it's funny that you don't think this is political. Do you know what "political" means?

    I will agree... I'm suprised this hasn't made its way to the cave yet

    While it could be an interesting topic merting discussion outside of the staunch far left/far right views of the Cave, there is a reason politics got moved off the main board in the first place...

    If the "separation of church and state" was mentioned in the constitution you might be on to something.

    Yes. In which case nearly every single post on this site that expresses an opinion. sports related or not, could be considered "political".

    Some folks just have to **** and moan about everything. It seems like they just look for stuff to bring to controversy. Sells newspapers I guess? Gets them on tv?

    And a long way from the original post, which is going to doom it to the Cave. :wideeyed:

    Sorry, guys.

    *Edited the edit.

    Truthfully, I just wanted to give people a chance to vote in the poll if they wished to.
