I literally felt my stomach sink when I read that. Gasp

@DonaldTrump, Patriotism is not honoring your flag no matter what your country/leader does. It's doing whatever it takes to make your country the best it can be as long as its not violent.

All these old Catholic dudes will be gone in a few years. This sort of crap will be gone in another generation. 75 years ago, atheism was equated with "Communism" etc etc and Madeline Murray O'Hare was a pariah. Things change ... slowly. Whenever they start praying in meetings I always (very politely, and with a smile) excuse myself, and say I have "to go to the rest-room". It's my personal way of saying "piss on you and and prayers".

Sorry, but america is going "backwards" by your standard. It's already pretty much a theocracy.

Feel free to leave.

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.

In all honesty, the morons exist in all parties.

I'm 15 years old and mentally retarded. Yeah, good luck with that.

Quote:WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report) — In what legal experts are calling a landmark decision, on Monday the United States Supreme Court struck down what many believe to be the main reason the country was started.

By a five-to-four vote, the Court eliminated what grade-school children have traditionally been taught was one of the key rationales for founding the United States in the first place.

“The separation of church and state has been a cornerstone of American democracy for over two hundred years,” said Justice Samuel Alito, writing for the majority. “Getting rid of it was long overdue.”

Oh thank god it's not real. I was panicking there for a second.

What's not real? The decision unfortunately is.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

THAT is. And it's unfortunate. The New Yorker article is satire.

Look like it's time to organize a bunch of FSM groups in these cities and then demand equal access.
