LL-Why is welfare the job of the church?

What if some don't believe and have no church--or temple or mosque? Where do they go? About 40% of America is churchless. Probably more.

Why is separation "infamous"?

Just curious.

japanviking - the trouble with separation of church and state argument is that the state is the problem. They have taken over the churches job - that of welfare. If we are going to have the infamous "separation" then the state needs to get out of the welfare business.

If you do not believe Ms. Czech, ask the climate experts at the U of M. You wil get a pretty alarming answer and they ain't liberals. I personally know a couple of them who could give 2 shakes of a chicken's rear end about politics. I would say we are at planetary carrying capacity max. We better start looking at world populations and their increasing needs and wants. The rest of the world not only looks to us to lead, but they want the lifestyle we have already. Kinda gets us back to population control issues and the care of God's creation. God gave us this place to live, unless we can find another one what are we to do with all these people. We can only sustain so many of us at a certain level of lifestyle. I really wonder what God is going to do about this one MikeT. Any ideas? I would really like to get your feedback.

MIT: By "Eastern religions" you really meant "Eastern regions" didn't you? I'm sure you were referring to people who live in New York or Boston, right?

I totally agree.

This letter reads more like a well thought-out New York Times editorial than "in keeping with a pantheistic Earth-religion".

Come on fella, not everything is religious mumbo-jumbo. Ms. Czech's letter was pretty straight forward liberal dogma.

Get with it.

Wow, two letters basically on the exact same topic in the same day so I will share the same thoughts here as with the other letter writer. My only problem with these types of letters is that they always bring religion into the conversation. We have a separation of Church and State for many reasons and the Supreme Court cannot make decisions based on any religious text including the Christian Bible. While I appreciate and applaud everyone's right to worship I also appreciate and applaud anyone's right to not worship if they so chose. No one religious group or entity should ever be allowed to impose their beliefs or doctrines on those who do not share the same views. When you Govern and make laws based on religious text of any kind you are no longer a Democracy or a free Republic you become a theocracy. Most of the Middle East is Governed that way I am am fairly certain none of us in America would like to live that way and give up our freedom.

As George Carlin so brilliantly stated, "the earth will be here....it is our behind we are trying to save."
