      Yes, as with your take on this issue always its people being discriminatory against Christians when in reality Christians do the majority of the discriminating against every group they disapprove of. Of course the other shitty religions are no different. If it were majority muslims in this country doing the same shit I'd be railing against them too. But for you its just a bunch of Librul Christian haters. Your senility or old man crabiness has really impeded your ability to make compelling arguments anymore. I, for the millionth time, have nothing against Christians receiving funding to make a playground safer. I just refuse to pretend the logic of this argument exists in a vacuum when in the next argument Christians will be the first to cast this logic aside and argue for their right to discriminate against other groups based on "religious freedom". Christians should receive funding discrimination free but they should also be able to restrict funding for other groups with impunity. Your support of double standards is transparent and obvious and pathetic.
      I don't have a double standard, you do.
      You believe people can use the force of government to make people comply with your beliefs, yet believe they cannot do the same.
      I choose that neither side should.

      You believe the government should treat a group like second class citizens simply because you don't like them. I hold the opposing belief that government must act fairly.

      Just because you don't like them does not give you the right to trample on them, but your hate won't allow you to realize that.
      You accuse them of being evil for the exact things you do.

        I hope he's ok.
        IIRC his health was a bit on the shitty side.

          Not getting funding for a playground is getting treated like second class citizens? OK guy. Lulz. This made it to SCOTUS so the concept of not using tax dollars to fund a Church facility hasn't been invented out of thin air here just to screw over the Christians. If the Christians win it means absolutely nothing to me. Again, I did not create the standard that exists which is meant to keep Church and State separate. I didn't accuse anyone of being "evil" nor did I say we should "trample" on anyone's rights. You are being an old drama queen. But that seems to be SOP when you're out of arguments.

              That is the exact argument going before the court. Rather sad a "liberal" can't understand how that works, but if you hate the group it's ok, right?

              Are you building a chruch? Are you saying that Christians get "government money" because we love them over others? No. But that's not gonna stop you from hopping on the fuck them train.

              I call BS on that. Otherwise you wouldn't be ranting with every post.

                Its become clear your perception of what people type versus what they actually type continually clouds your judgement. You call my responses "anti-Christian rants"...OK...that's your problem, not mine. We talk about these sort of topics so we type out our opinions. Beyond me typing my opinion on this subject when asked I could give a shit if some Church in Missouri gets money for a playground.

                    Interesting case. They meet or exceed every state requirement, including care for special needs children, but cannot get any form of state assistance.
                    It's definitely not what is meant by a separation of church and state, so it will likely be killed by the SCOTUS.
                    The government has to operate on a fair practice method. Here are the guidelines. If you meet this criteria, you qualify. Simple as that.
                    It is kind of interesting. I heard some chat about it on the radio the other day. My first reaction....
                    1. Don't give money to churches. For any reason.

                    Then I listened to a rather noted liberal lawyer talking about it. The playground is available for public use and it does meet every state requirement. And then went on to say that it's the very definition of discriminating against religion. In the end, the Supreme Court won't take it up. I believe the state has already (or will rather shortly) amend the law....in which case....the Supreme Court won't bother.

                    My followup reaction...
                    2. Don't give money. For any reason. That way, you don't have to take it. Then the church will have deeper pockets in their congregation in which to soak from.
                    And...in that manner....the public that does use that playground will get the upgrade for free.
