Atheist Activist Group Demanding Florida City to Remove Bible From City Hall Chambers

It’s called freedom of religion.

The Citizen Media

When the global economy is doing well, the amount of stuff that is imported and exported around the world goes up, and when the global economy is in recession, the amount of stuff that is imported and exported around the world goes down.  It is just basic economics.  Governments around the world have become very adept at manipulating other measures of economic activity such as GDP, but the trade numbers are more difficult to fudge.  Today, China accounts for more global trade than anyone else on the entire planet, and we have just learned that Chinese exports and Chinese imports areboth collapsing right now.  But this is just part of a larger trend.  As I discussed the other day, British banking giant HSBC has reported that total global trade is down 8.4 percent so far in 2015, and global GDP expressed in U.S. dollars is down 3.4 percent

  1. Well, we might ask here, Jeremy, Who are the “activists”? If a group of non-believers, or let’s say a Muslim or Pagan group, presented their “special book” to your city hall for it to be displayed, would you speak out for that “freedom of religion”? You see, this is always the point, isn’t it, with these impositions of sectarian religion into secular politics? Some want “religious freedom” as long as it’s theirs and theirs alone.


    1. If they wanted their book to be put up they could put it up right as well. No one is stopping anyone from practicing their religion but the issue is when Christians want their freedom of religion we are labeled as extremists.


      1. Well, ok, but when “practicing your religion” means forcing all the rest of us to have to see your holy book, your statues, your beliefs every time we come into our public city hall, that’s not about Freedom, but one religion’s “right” to make every public space your pulpit. Do you really want us all preaching at each other in front of your school or in the dmv when renewing your license? The public square in a free country ought to be safe and free of coercion, for all of us. Pulpits are in churches, not courtrooms or congress, for a reason. Let’s be thankful we have a Constitution that guides our free nation, not a Bible, Quran, Veda or other sectarian book.
