    [color=darkred:3dq2cuyq]This was posted by an atheist in another board.[/color:3dq2cuyq]

    [color=indigo:3dq2cuyq]Godless Political Values for Liberal, Representative Democracy:
    Politics in a liberal, democratic democracy cannot long proceed or survive simply by inertia; instead they must be constantly fed by people who are engaged in the political process and who share some of the basic values necessary for such a democracy to thrive. None of these values depend in any way upon religion or theism; this means that they necessarily “godless” that they exist independently of people’s religions and gods.[/color:3dq2cuyq]

    [color=indigo:3dq2cuyq]Secularism:
    Often derided by those who don’t understand or believe in it, secularism is a critical component of liberal democracy. Secularism is the political principle or philosophy that there must exist some sphere of knowledge, values, institutions, and action that is independent of religious authority. If there is no such secular sphere, then everything is under ecclesiastical control and this undermines the possibility for liberty and autonomy.[/color:3dq2cuyq]

    I have to ask you this –

    when a person studies to play fooball (or anything for that Matter) they begin with the Fundamentals.
    So what or why the rap against Biblical fundies?

    Ron, this has nothing to do with Christian Fundamentalists or their beliefs. This is about [b:2jbinoov]secular[/b:2jbinoov] fundamentalism. In other words, non-religious affiliated fundamentalism.

    Don’t attempt to hijack this thread and turn it into another one of your tirades against the Catholic Church.

    [color=darkred:2mldxf5s]Ron, why did you have to hijack this thread?

    I’m almost certain we would agree in this thread if you actually understood what was being talked about. But instead you decided to do exactly what Jon pointed out. You are a piece of work Ron.[/color:2mldxf5s]
