Religious Zealotry

I'm what you'd probably consider "leftist" and I'd have no interest in shutting you up temporarily let alone permanently as I'm an advocate for freedom of speech. No interest in being a tyrant and riding roughshod over people's rights and freedoms either. A whole load of hyperbole going on with you here and no bearing on reality at all.

There you go, dashing their tropes again...

So what? Regardless of your opinion of our legal system (and there's a lot of room for improvement) it is the law. If you're charged with a crime or hit with a lawsuit, when you're standing in a courtroom, you're going to be facing charging documents, complaints, whatever fits the situation. The judge isn't gonna sit down and open a Bible.
I wonder how much longer we will be asked to swear on one...?

NOUN
zealotry (noun)

fanatical and uncompromising pursuit of religious, political, or other ideals; fanaticism:​

The most dangerous and evil zealotry in America today is the political zealotry of the Left. They are currently harassing and threatening supreme court judges right in front of their homes. No Christian in America behave like that.

Democrats burn down cities and kill cops with their BLM and Antifa, Democrats sexually pervert and groom little children right in the classroom.

To complain about religious zealotry is to live in a fantasy world of anti-God hate. The true enemy on the world today is the political Left.

What is bad is when the judge not only closes the Bible but also suspends the constitutional rights of defendants and the rule of law, as was done in the trials of Michael Flynn, Donald Trump, Roger Stone, and others hated by the democrats and their litigious pals in the judiciary.

Well there is no legitimate reason to require it. Swearing to tell the truth under penalty of perjury is possible and preferable.

You can swear an oath or make an affirmation, and leave off "so help me God," and a Bible may or may not be present, depending on where you're testifying. Doesn't even have to be a Bible, it can be another holy book.

They have black and white thinking, anything in between is compromise and compromise is anathema.

Worse then that, doubt is anathema. Forbidden, even. How can one have a conscience without the ability to doubt one’s own motives and behaviors?

Came across this photo today, after reading a couple articles about the implosion of the 'people's convoy' due to infighting and mutiny and what not, and was reminded of our recent back and forth.

Any god will do for you Marxists eh? What the heck, since you don't really believe in God anyway, right?

I don't see the penalties man brings to the table as more punitive than the punishment God will bring.
If folks don't fear God, they will not fear other men.

:ROFLMAO:

It's like some on the far right feel some perpetual need to exaggerate or resort to hyperbole to demonize anyone to the left of them on the political spectrum. Somehow you're a "Marxist" or want to censor their views and while there's doubtless a few on the far left that are and do it doesn't remotely encapsulate anybody center/left in the main at all.

Predictable over the top nonsense but only to be expected really.

Sort of like FAUX News. We know they are mistaken/confused or flat out lying so … best to ignore their *content*.
