    Honesty in religion by another is heresy. Good thing Galilieo wasn’t bound by religion…that is except for the prison time he served. Religion is burdoned by scientific ingnorance.

    Did liberal principles come from the New Testament? When Cain asked God his stump-er question in the Old Testament, God didn’t know. His next generation answered without conferring with absolute authority in the sequel. Different ghost writer, different viewpoint. Book three available in 2012.

    You’re too late…Ayn Rand got there first, and it’s a dry and barren land..One working definition of “God” is: the one sets your priorities, who calls the shots, whom you obey. What you’re describing is a religion that consists of a mirror — a hideously small and boring existence.

    Freedom of religion MUST include freedom from religion for people who want freedom from religion. Some day loop jobs like you will realize this.

    As a fairly liberal Christian who repeatedly deals with idiot fundamentalists, I can say without a doubt that this belief system already exists.

    You already are a religion. It is called narcisism. The word even kind of sounds like a scented flower.

    Unlike Republican economic policy? Like the “trickle down” theory? It has been tried and proven not to work. Somehow it still seems to be the mantra of the right. Cut taxes for the rich to save and create jobs. Bush slashed taxes ten years ago and unemployment is at its highest in years. So the right does not let science and facts interfere with their agenda either.

    Without taking Wiley’s comment to the political, it seems to me that his commentary on religion is concise and too close to home to be comfortable for those who have been led into the type of non-thinking that the commandments require.

    Predictably, lots of broad, uninformed comments parrotted by the “anti-religion” types. But here’s something to think about: the Bible is actually a strongly anti-religion document — assuming you define “religion” correctly. As some have said, God hates religion. Jesus didn’t come to start another religion; he came to make a way that religion can’t make.

    “Faith and reason are complete opposites. Reason allows and welcomes questioning, faith forbids it.” — Maybe the faith you personally have does that. Christian faith, however, goes beyond where reason alone can go, but it does not run counter to it.

    All organized religions have as their primary motive control over their faithful. If these faithful came to realize that there is in fact no Heaven, no Olam HaEmet, no 72 virgins waiting for you, that what they have while living on this earth is all there is, then one would see a massive revolt against the poverty, hunger and want politicians and “spiritual” leaders foist upon them.

    Hinduism actually has control over its faithful. It’s called the caste system. Follow your dharma and maybe, just maybe, your karma will allow you to reincarnate into a better caste in the next life. Fail to follow your dharma and you’ll end up being reincarnated into a lower caste, or even cast out—“outcast,” or “those outside the caste.”

    Fishsticks, the ACLU defends ALL religions from ALL people, and ALL people from ALL religions. Criticism of the ACLU from the right is demagogic and consists of disgusting un-American lies, designed to hide a weak and shallow philosophy of elitism and privilege…The AMERICAN CIVIL LIBERTIES UNION actively defendS the civil liberties of ALL Americans. That’s really why conservatives hate the idea of the ACLU….To conservatives, not ALL “Americans” deserve to be defended

    Since religion is being broached…I will say – from my perspective – the door to Heaven is wide open to all who may choose to enter. Quibbling with the obvious and incontrovertible facts of life is a sign of the person’s individual bent to deny God’s existence and His Supremacy. Christ died to enforce the new Covenant and it’s re-organized Commandments (which are described by Grainbelt above). Thank you.Now, why can’t Danae just sell lemonade and play with dollies like the other girls?

    Everyone has their choice but I would no less go through life without a belief in a higher power than man than I would bother to go to the library blindfolded.As the Danish Prince said,“why suffer the slings………Perchance to dream, ah, there’s the rub” End all suffering by death, there is no God. We will begin by murdering the poor and sick. No eternal punishment, might as well kill those who don’t believe as us. No God, murder everyone who isn’t of one color. If there is no Heavenly reward for doing right, why should I? Me, me, me. There is no higher power so I shall take everything in my power.I’m sorry for you who think you are the crown of creation, er evolution.

    Being founded on Judeo-Christian ethics does not make us a Judeo-Christian country. Atheists have every right as Americans as theists do, whether you like it or not.

    First, and foremost – overarching all that I have read – I say, WOW!, really, over a COMIC STRIP?!?!?!? – WOW!

    Second, I have to admit that I haven’t been able to read the daily comics in awhile so I didn’t know that the website address was featured on each of them. I thought it was for just this one to get some sort of feedback on this particular one…

    Anyway, I’ve always wondered why believers in something can’t just accept the fact – the fact – that there will be non-believers in that thing and just leave them alone and move on. You know, like, “You believe? Cool. You don’t believe? Cool” – Why is it important that anyone else at all believe as you do? Ever? A person’s belief is theirs. Can’t that just be enough for ANYONE? Any of you? As I read all of these comments I was just wondering that….

    I understand that the answer might be that if you believe in something which you have concluded is positive or worthwhile, you want others to enjoy it also so you’ll have some reasons why they should. But whan they don’t or won’t, can’t you just leave them along in their “ignorance”? I can, so what if they don’t go along with me? SO WHAT.?

    So, since you’ve bugged your eyes out staring at this crazy long post, I’ll conclude with these:

    1. Do you guys really not have any other arena to debate such issues? – IT IS A COMIC STRIP.

    2. Dane has the right to to make the “Commandments” fit her Church’s agenda. That’d be their point.

    3. The writer of “The Ten Commandments” (whomever you believe that to be or not be) was also trying to further a personal agenda. Who ever said it wasn’t so? In the human existance there’s always a personal agenda trying to be furthered. Always.

    4. Don’t bother asking me what my views on religion or politics are – I won’t tell you. Frankly It’s none of your business and it never was.

    FINALLY, if you see any typos, mispellings, or any grammar mistakes – I don’t care so might as well not comment on them.
