Republicans Without Religion

It's time for a new kind of Republican. Republicans Without Religion!

There is an old saying, "Republicans let you keep your money but control your life. Democrats take your money but let you run your own life."

The only clear agenda of republicans these days is religious smut peddling.

Republicans used to be about free enterprise and smaller, less intrusive government. Not anymore. Republicans don't seem to care about anything other than converting all Americans into christians and weaving religion into the fabric of American government.

Thanks to George Bush, our government is spending more now than Bill Clinton would have ever dared and he's adding to the size and influence of goverment on a daily basis. I'm a total fan of free enterprise. I hate socialism yet this November, 2004, I will have to vote for a Democrat because there's nothing more dangerous to America than religious fanaticism. It was religious fanaticism that brought down the twin towers and it can bring down America if we don't stop it. I'm much more afraid of religious wackos in Washington than all the terrorists in the world.

America grew strong because of separation of state and superstition and because of individual rights and free enterprise. The constitution of America does not mention god at all and the first sentence of the first amendment says that "congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion". Our founding fathers were geniuses. Even though the founding fathers were somewhat religious themselves, they recognized that government needs to be based on human reasoning rather than religious superstition. The republicans in our government today are trying to attack and destroy the traditional wall between government and superstition established by our founding fathers.

The Republicans are out of control but the Democrats with their socialist/communist tendencies are not the answer. It's time for a new kind of Republican. Republicans Without Religion!

I just recently realized that I'm not really a democrat. I'm actually a republican who dislikes the advancements Amreica has made towards theocracy. I belief in smaller government, but in order to have that you need to allow people to make their own decisions on whether they'll keep a pregnancy or not. I believe in free enterprise, not corporate welfare.

The religiously ignorant people of America have long sought a voice in politics, and sadly they've found it with Republican party. Why they could not have founded their own party, with their beliefs, I don't know. We've seen their affect on policy for years now, and I think it's about time that we take a stand for what we believe in. It's time to start redifing what it means to be a republican.

Again, I'm NOT against religion. Religion has a place in America, and some Americans just need to have it in their lives. Let them. Just keep it out of our government, please.

Thought? .com Rob@ Amayahope. I'd love to talk.

David ,
I believe you have a very strong point on what you are saying.People are different and we should act the way we want to,not because someone tells us that we are wrong.I think that it is unfair to make everyone a christian,when clearly not everyone is one.It is unfair to make someone believe in something we don't want to.This country is made up of all kinds of people and their religions.Without them we would not be the country we are now.

Yes, this country is made up of all kinds of religions. But this country was founded by Christians, and governed by Christian morals. We still honor those laws today "under God". Why aren't these "liberals" making everyone work Good Friday and not have a day off for Christmas? Isn't that a ruling in favor of Christians? We ALLOW other religions in this country because it is the home of the free. You can come live in our country, but don't try to change our rules!!!!

Hi superstitution,

Bill Moyers from PBS comments on religion and Republicans

“True, people of faith have always tried to bring their interpretation of the Bible to bear on American laws and morals … it’s the American way, encouraged and protected by the First Amendment. But what is unique today is that the radical religious right has succeeded in taking over one of America’s great political parties. The country is not yet a theocracy but the Republican Party is, and they are driving American politics, using God as a battering ram on almost every issue: crime and punishment, foreign policy, health care, taxation, energy, regulation, social services and so on.”-Bill Moyer

I might add that the religious right is trying to get their version of 'science' into Americas classrooms. It's called Intelligent Design and basically it is an attempt to get religion to supersede real science in our schools.

I could not agree more. I'm a Republican on most issues, but hate the religious agenda. I want a forward-thinking party that embraces science and technology. I don't care about abortion, or gay marriage, or prayer in school.

I care about the fact that the Federal government is spending over 3 trillion dollars per year--they're budgeting nearly 1/4 of the total GDP.

I care about education. Our curriculum is outdated. Schools are crippled under the tag team of government bureaucracy and teacher's unions.

etc. etc.

We need an era of pragmatic, business-minded Republicans who are focused on smart answers for the big problems--not pasting the Ten Commandments on a wall.
