Fox News host Dana Perino disagrees. She not only has no problem with forcing Christianity down our throats, she thinks anyone who has a problem with that can flee the country.

    On Wednesday’s edition of The Five, Perino whined about a lawsuit in Massachusetts challenging the use of “under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance because it is a violation of the Constitutional principle of separation of church and state as well as a violation of the Massachusetts state Constitution. Rather than demonstrate journalistic objectivity or proper historical and legal knowledge, Perino showed clear bias and attacked the non-believers who filed the suit, remarking that if they don’t like government sponsored religion, they are free to leave.

    “I’m tired of them,” Perino stated. “I remember working at the Justice Department years ago when I first started right after 9/11 and a lawsuit like this came through, and before the day had finished, the United States Senate and the House of Representatives had both passed resolutions saying that they were for keeping ‘under God’ in the pledge. If these people really don’t like it, they don’t have to live here.”...more...

    The title of this thread would be more accurate if it read WANTING to shove religion down our throat.

    One of the more amusing things about my fellow atheists is when they get all alarmed at christian efforts to attack separation of church and state. The christians typically lose and seldom win anything at all beyond a sticker in a text book which no one reads.

    There is a reason why the great minds of atheism such as Hitchens and Harris warn us of Islam far more than christianity.

    Christianity is little more than a waning embarrassment Islam is a threat

    It's against my religion that anyone should be allowed to feel offended when I criticize their religion.

    Liberals feel that only their views, opinions, and agenda are legitimate. ALL OTHERS MUST be rejected, resisted, and, if possible, censored. At any level possible.

    I call this: "Lib Privilege."

    Where were you when this was a debate a few weeks ago? Tell me one thing though seriously:

    Are you that insecure that the mere mention of a God causes you to get your boxers in a bunch?
