A lot more secular.
They're on the same level as radical islam.
Not anti-theist but secular
Persecuting anyone is a bad thing.
*coughs* Self proclaimed socialists of america *coughs*
America is on the same level as radical Islam? You fuckin' what?
There are certain schools that teach creationism as equal to evolution.
That is a mind blowing false equivalence
This is what you are comparing it
Sure, it's not ISIS levels of nuttery.
But it's about as religious nutjob you get.
Contradictory statements are contradictory
But it still doesn't make it any less of a problem.
It really does
Well, less of a problem than you and others make it out to be
A problem doesn't become more or less of a problem because it's worse somewhere else in the world.
I might've used some overly harsh words, Brian.
But it's a threat to the fundamentals of western society values still.
It's something that needs to be looked at seriously.
And quickly too.
It's a steadily declining influence
Is it? Because it was recently put into a bunch of states.
Not the other way around.
That's interesting. Do you have a source for that?
It might've been in Louisiana.
Gonna have to look it up again.
That would make sense
Not a threat to national security though
Now who's on the wrong side of the fence?
It not being related to national security doesn't make it any less of a problem.
There also seems to be way more states than I initially thought.
To me it does
National security is my primary concern
Shit. Then why not give up all your rights then.
It's easier to secure the nation if no one has any rights.
It's not necessary
And I would argue against the long-term security of an Authoritarian state
I don't understand what religion and national security have to do with eachother, good or bad.
A global caliphate would certainly compromise national security
But the original issue was religion in the United States
No it was a comparison between religion in the US and radical Islam
Soyaman went on to make that comparison to try to reinforce his point, and while I don't agree the two can be compared, I think the original issue still stands that religion in the United States still poses many problems even if they aren't necessarily threats to national security.
