A.
Singular.

But that's all it takes for some Christian snowflakes who can't handle a single voice of dissent to kick in the hyperbole machine and proceed with the pretense that it's actually they who are the victims.
The snowflake is the person who had a problem with DQ, IMO.

It wouldn't be a thing around here either- which is why the article caught my attention.

Where I live is your typical small town America.
When I say tree-lined streets, churches, civic pride and good people- that should give you an idea.

No one, and I mean NO ONE is afraid to express that.
Except for that weirdo down on 5th Street.

He is into canoes.
He puts his canoe in his front yard with signs on it, like for New Year?
"Happy Canoe Year"
Then for Trump- "Canoe Imagine Trump for President?"
He drives an old white Buick filled to the brim with star-spangled things in the back window and bumper stickers galore.

Dear God..

Where the hell do you see "a nation" in any of this?
The thread's subject matter talks about ONE PERSON expressing his personal opinion. That's it.

This is not a Conservative viewpoint. If anything it is a Liberal one they used to champion. But more importantly, it is a Constitutional one.
No. It's really not a constitutional one.
The constitution governs what the government tells us we can or cannot do.
This thread has nothing to do with any such governmental action.

We've got another thread where the religious right are trying to exaggerate and capitalize their faux victim-hood, pretending the action of one person is much larger than it is.

It was this individual's freedom of speech to whine about this just as it was the business's right to tell him that they weren't having any of that...

Yet again, who is asking for that???

The Constitution does no such thing. The Constitution tells government what it can and cannot do.

As usual, you misrepresent what I said so you can malign it.

My post says we have a Constitutional right to speak freely and offend. That would include the person speaking out against "in God we trust."

As for who is asking for "that" Are you serious? Or just purposely unaware?

Can you say statue?
