People that would follow the Bible are often mocked, but against authority and popular opinion, they set up the underground railroad, to gets escaped slaves to freedom, or, like the Ten Boom family, would hide Jews from the Nazi's. What I find interesting about haters, that point out the shortfalls of Christians, is that their notion of what should be is from some Judeo-Christian tradition or grandparent. Raised without those notions they could be like the Maori, before missionaries reached them. It was nothing a Maori to club a stranger and take them home for the evening meal and brag about it. But Bible believers are the ones vilified by these whose National Holiday is April I. God could allow us to go, as we are not puppets

"and Scientific is a Religion in itself, also based on Faith"

And science you actually mean is based on evidence and expremientation. So you are wrong. Science never claims to have all the answers. But for any science I could point you to gathered evidence, experiments....all you can point to is "faith" and a book written by fishermen 2000 years ago when people thought the world was flat.

Now what the heck does that have to do with my post to which you replied?

Did i in anyway mock, hate or express contempt for religious people? I in particular said religious people have freedom in their religious services.

And by the way the Maori, like most primitive people were religious. Just of a different religion

Those that hate people of Faith may think only that people are not educated properly. After seeing Germany go from a country that sent medical missionaries, in Christ's name, to allowing Mengele, in a generation or two, makes me put no Faith in education. Faith that people just have to be educated and Scientific is a Religion in itself, also based on Faith.

A former British airlines worker was just told by a European human-rights court that she does, in fact, have the right to wear a crucifix on her neck. That such a thing would even have to go to court seems quite the sign of the times.

It comes as Brits are faced with same-sex-marriage legislation that, if passed, would likely leave churches facing lawsuits when some clerics inevitably refuse to carry out such weddings.

The decision came down on "Religious Freedom Day" here in America.

"Foremost among the rights Americans hold sacred is the freedom to worship as we choose," proclaimed the White House....
