    I heard about it on Huckabee. I too find it an intriguing concept. I need to sit down with a coffee in the morning and read it thoroughly when I'm fresh.

    Get back to you when Ican speak semi-intelligently.

    O'Reilly touched on the subject tonight. I am in complete agreement and signed the declaration.

    Boy is this going to be a hot potato. I see the potential for a flame war about religion coming....

    I do not agree with the dogma associated with the work. I believe religion as a whole to be just another tool to deny freedom to others on the basis of what it teaches. There is a reason why this country was founded upon the ideal of a separated church and state, and that is because the Church, and thus religion, is utilized as a tool to suppress people. The Founders did not want this to occur.

    I think it's fine for people to uphold Christian morals, or to use it as their own compass. That is their right as an American, but it is equally my right to deny the same guidelines if I so choose. After all, this country is not comprised solely of Christians, and yet the modern political crusade is out to cram it's ideals down the throats of everyone else. I believe in equal rights, but not preferential treatment; a refusal to adhere to either is unconstitutional in my opinion.

    I believe it's a good idea and long over due,we have an administration and groups from the left cramming an agenda down our throats and this may be a peaceful way of halting or containing the process.
