Opening Arguments

In Jesus' name, knock it off

Indiana isn't the only state whose legislature is being challenged for invoking the name of Jesus:

"As a matter of historical fact, the exact prayers given in the first Congress explicitly referred to Jesus Christ," according to a 50-page legal brief the county filed Tuesday.

In addition, as recently as July 19, a prayer that said "in the name of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ," was made at the opening of the U.S. House of Representatives, the brief said.

Forget the legalities involved for a moment. Do any of you really think your lives have been diminished in some way because such words are uttered in legislative chambers? Do any of you really think your lives will be improved in some way if sch words are forbidden?

How is it that not all of man's religious God(s), are not mentioned in every state. Not all Americans are christian. Some are Jewish, Muslims, Hindu, and soforth, so why not mention all their gods names when taking oaths, or doing the pledge of alegents. Besides, they are all some form of god, mad up by man to satisfy his need to have a leader over him. If this is the case, then why not just call upon the true Creator YHWH. Why all the false gods that man uses in his gov, schools, on his money and so forth. The reason is simple, all these gods are really some man or woman, that have long died or never truely exsisted. After the great flood, Nimrod became the first MAN_GOD and it has escalated since then, so as a man that fears his Creator YHWH, I say yes, get all of the gods out of your gov, schools, and your lives and go back to allowing, YHWH, to again govoren. Just think, as long as Adam and Eve did right, did HE not take care of them? runjonah
