Site Meter Ogre's Politics & Views: Religious? You're Fired.

I have an idea for a law. I know, I hardly ever propose a new law. We really do have enough laws. We have way too many laws that serve no purpose or are not used. We have so many laws, many are enforced only when someone wants to enforce them. But sometimes there's a real need for a law. I think I'd word this new law something like this:

Government shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.

What do you think? Think that would make a good law? Think that would make us different from all those other countries that have state-sponsored religions? I think allowing people freedom to have a religion would be a good idea. Unfortunately, that's not currently the case in America.

If you're a government employee and happen to go to church, that simple fact might get you fired. No, really. A government employee was actually told to stop going to church or he would be fired. He continued going to church and yes, he was fired. You see, the current government-enforced religion IS atheism. You're simply not permitted to have any other religious beliefs if you have any association with government.

Of course, an even better solution would be to get government out of anything associated with this sort of thing. There's no need for government to be doing billions of things they're doing now. But so many people have become so dependent on my money being given to them via government that I don't hold much hope on that happening. It might, though, in the Free State.
