Default The Government Should Have To Work!!


I got a great email this morning that put a new perspective of how I think about our Government Having " In God We Trust" and Ten Comandments taken out of Government settings and the American Dollar. The Government is trying to take everything that our country was founded upon away. No More prayers in schools... cant get out and preach on the sidewalks unless you have a permit?... are you kidding me?
This email will be available to anyone that wants it... just send me a private message and give me your email address and I will forward it to ya.
What is it all about? It tells all the days of the year or pretty much most of them, that our government takes off with pay for Holidays that involve God/Jesus. They say that these days are just another day, but boy are they up and willing to take a paid holiday off for'em. I think just like the email says and They Should Have To Work on these Holidays since they dont believe in them anyway. I know that this isnt gonna be everyones' favorite thread to respond to, but everyone of us are paying the folks for them to be off and not support our Christian beliefs. WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THIS?

As much as I dislike all the religious talk on any board, I gotta admit this one makes sense.

Perhaps a seperate forum for this. I know not a lot of people want to see this, so why not a seperate forum for this kind of talk.

I worked for the federal government for 13 years, and there were ten holidays a year I received paid days off for. Only one of them had anything to do with religion, and that was Christmas. The other nine?

New Year's Day - not religious.

Martin Luther King Day - not religious.

President's Day - not religious.

Memorial Day - not religious.

Independence Day - not religious.

Labor Day - not religious.

Columbus Day - not religious.

Veteran's Day - not religious.

Thanksgiving Day - not religious.

The one other holiday that federal employees get to my knowledge is Inauguration Day, which occurs once every four years and only benefits federal employees that work inside and around the D.C. beltway (of which I was never one) and also has nothing to do with religion. What are these other "holidays" you speak of? Or are you talking about the Congressional recess calendar? Congress kind of works their own whacked schedule anyway.

Separation of church and state was one of the founding principles of this country. Check out Thomas Jefferson's Va. Statute on Religious Freedom.

Makes even more sense

Wrong, that crap started with the first of many Amendments (amendments mean change) to the original Constitution.

Oh, it that what an amendment is. You are aware that the first ten amendments also known as the Bill of Rights was added to the Constitution so that all states would ratify it. That whole Federalists vs. Anti Federalists thing. And your wrong. It was one of the founding principles of this nation. Do some research on mandatory taxes to support The Anglican Church.
