trans-parere,

I am in very strong agreement that we should strive for freedom of religion. Surely freedom of religion allows one to proselytize? Sure we should be free to listen to another's views and search for ourselves that what we seek is truth. I will never justify taking action to prevent another from sharing their beliefs regardless of how foreign it may be to me.

I am not forced to listen and they are not forced to share it with me i.e. total free agency for all. There should be no triumphing any religion as that means that others are forced to submit to the conquering religion. However people did seek the US for a place to freely express and live their religion where the state did not decide which church would govern. The English experience with the Church of England is really no different than Sharia law. "The trouble is all religions see themselves as an authority. The authority." Agree wholeheartedly. "

I find it interesting to read those responses from the United States who are critical about what is only spoken by one socialist Protestant in the U.K. and shouted down by the majority, while a very large number of Yanks are hoping to elect a Muslim as leader of the Democrat Party and maybe to the Presidency. You may soon be governed by Allah and the Koran. Do you think the Chinese will accept your debt payments in Riyal? ;-" I am grateful that you understand that Williams is a socialist. Should the US citizen vote Obama into power then I say God help us.

This man is a socialist pig of the highest order who understands nothing about the constitution and believes that he and the "elites" know what is best for us. I for one will be happy to take up arms against such fascism. There is a glaring similarity between Woodrow Wilson, Mussolini and Hitler's brand of fascism. The US has always been more effective in marketing fascism and calling it "compassionate conservatism", "for the children" and "the third way". Putting make up on a pig still makes it a pig. No matter how they try to paint this picture it is still enlarged and unaccountable government and a bankrupt state to boot.

You may like this video. It is almost 2 hrs long but very revealing. The republicans and democrats are all party to the same goals. The american people continue to waste their time arguing about which party is best whilst both parties distract them into this argument whilst acting daily to take away their freedoms. http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-1656880303867390173 You will also see the absolute disrespect the moron Bush has for the constitution in this video.
