    Interesting grammar from a New Yorker.
    We make-a melting pot but when crazy Mayor Bloomberg want to make-a stop-and-a-frisk, the pot usually is no melting but it make-a burning like-a oil.

    I can see that you'll go far and quite possibly at a rapid pace.

    Hi there

    NY is probably like central London -- probably English is not the first language of over HALF the citizens -- last time I was in NY I never did find a Taxi driver or even a Bus driver who spoke English as a first language.

    In London it's the same -- although it's spread now to Shop assistants, Restaurant Waiters, Hotel staff and Bars as well.

    Cheers

    And who writes anything using '-a' at the end of words? Maybe someone attempting poor, disparaging, humour.

    Hi there

    What about that dreadful TV series -- I'm a Celebrity --Get me Outt-a here.

    We do though seem to have come a long way from the title of the thread -- none of this stuff has anything to do with XP. !!!!

    Because.

    And that is the best answer you're going to get.

    And the founders were adamant about freedom OF religion. The freedom to practice it as you wish, when you wish. Not this freedom FROM religion that is sought after today.

    Our government can't establish a religion of the state. People are free to practice any religion individually. If a government official wants to pray or start a speech with a prayer to his or her religion, they should be free to do so and feel free to do so. That IS freedom of religion.

    By separation I think you mean exclusion of religion from government events. It is not the intent of the bill of rights to suppress freedom of religion because something is being done by the government. It's government that is not allowed to regulate or suppress religion.

    Individuals are free to practice religion. The government should not establish or deny religion or the practice of religion. A speaker at a government event saying a prayer is not a government establishing a church or religion. The only thing that does that is a piece of paper that says "The government of the United States declares that <insert religion> is now the official religion of the country." So long as that doesn't happen, pray to your hearts content free people.

    I believe freedom should trump governmental control. Government should be hands off and not controlling when it comes to religion.

    The First Amendment reads:

    Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

    Looks pretty clear to me. Would you be ok if organizers of government events pray to Allah, Buddha, or any other make-belief beings? Why should I, a baby eating, cat burning, devil worshipping atheist should endure your preaching of a fictional character? Pray in your own home and leave us sinners and infidels alone.
