They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
Amen. A sound policy.This was the actual immigration policy until "Swimmer" Kennedy changed it up ( well except the voting Democrat part).
It's the way we learned it in grade school.
That's a tall order. No I still get my free healf care and obama phone?
Democrats will fight your suggestion tooth and nail, Ed. Especially the voting for Democrats part.
They sure have.
Does assimilate mean:* Be able to speak and read passable English* Understand and behave according to expected social behavior (e.g. don't spit on the sidewalk, don't throw your trash out the window, do walk on the right)* Treat other people respectfullyIf so, I don't know how many of us are assimilated anymore!AlecPS I agree with your post.
I don't think a number of are assimilated, given the democrat vote.
I concur on every point.
Smart people seem to agree with me. :)
Are you willing to assimilate to a secular society, Ed?
A secular society? No. That sounds like one bereft of religious expression.A society that respects individual beliefs, wherein the citizens are allowed to express those beliefs in the public arena without fear of reprisal? Yes.
P.S. I agree with your post.I concur on every point.I am a smart person.
Is the reprisal severe, Ed?Just what form does it take?Evolution taught in schools?Discrimination against gays prohibited?Abortion still legal?If this is what you see as reprisal then how can we resolve it?Deny homosexuals the right to a civil contract because of religious objections?Accept a literal translation of Genesis?Fundamentalists are just going to have to accept certain restraints.
"Deny homosexuals the right to a civil contract".There's not a Christian I know opposes that.Marriage we oppose. Being forced to accept transgenders in our private areas. Prosecuted for hate speech.Certain restraints are fine. Losing your teaching job for questioning evolution?
Working for Ed, I assure all readers he is as large of a pathetic bigot as his blog implies.
Well there's a ringing endorsement!
The "anonymous" ones always carry the most weight in my book.
Thanks for noticing. I didn't know any of my employees (only a handful) read this. Or felt that way.
Anonymous is probably a whiner slacker. Should be easy to spot.
Not really. They are all whiner slackers.
That sure sums it up Ed. Bottoming lining it. :)
amen ED! Happiest holidays to you my loyal patriot friend!!! xoxoxox :0
Amen to that!
Says the guy who's about to assimilate into "civilian" life.
This bigot is totally with you, Ed. If those who didn't agree with you would stop and question you further, they might learn you're not a bigot....Faith can't exist anymore, Ed..not for lefties with a supposed 'open mind' who deem you immoral for the traditional, healthy values which kept us going for so many years...(now slavery will be brought up as a 'value' I support, tho that's always been the farthest thing from anything I've written...wait for it...1, 2, 3.......) Darn, if you don't want to kill babies, you're just not allowed your feelings, Ed. GROW UP (sarcasm)
I tried growing up years ago.It didn't seem to take.
Total agreement here. Works for me! ~:)
Two thumbs up, Ed.
I know you wanted to give three, but you, unlike me, are not all thumbs. Thanks :)
