Banning "Religious Symbols" (Article) - 1/30/2011 7:07:04 AM|
I know this is from a long time ago, but I had to comment...
I grew up in France as a missionary kid, and my parents are still missionaries there. With all due respect, I really think that you should read up a little more on an issue like this before you write an article about it, because you have posted, by mistake I'm sure, a really glaring untruth.
The law does NOT forbid anyone from leaving their house wearing a religious symbol. It goes nowhere near that. If it did there would be a huge outcry from the French people. That's police-state stuff and no one in France would stand for it.
The law forbids the wearing of large religious symbols by students at public schools. This includes headscarves, yarmulkes, and oversized crosses. (Small crosses, like your average cross necklace, are not banned, nor is any religious symbol of that size.) I think they actually included the ban on oversize crosses to make it look like the problem they had with the headscarf was that it was big and obvious, not that it was Muslim (which of course is why they really have a problem with it.)
I don't think it's a good law. I think it's a bad law. But it's not nearly the jackboot stuff you somehow got the impression it was, and I just felt that should be clarified.

Right ON! I just wrote a poem about PC Christians. Very sad indeed.
I've enjoyed reading you, Tamara. Hope to read more from you!

Tamara, This is good. I pray that thousands read this, especially schools and governments! I feel sorry that man is so out-of-touch with who the Creator is, and the power He holds in His hands.
God Bless you for your boldness!

Tamara: You are right-on with what you say, and unfortuneately, when those of us who know it speak it, we will usually be turned against. You already know this. But keep speaking it and take high courage.
I truly admire your spirit in speaking out to those who so easily pour out their syrupy love, meaning good feelings and well wishes. I agree whole heartedly that these feelings are not love, but only surface good will. It is only a beginning.
You make your point well. Carry on. I salute you!

Very well written article, Tamara. I guess we all see things differently, which is why it is important for each of us to know what is right for us. I believe God is inside me, and the further I go inside myself the closer I get to the truth. I don't believe my god sends others to do his work, he communicates directly through me.

Why in the world does America want to ban God from the public square? Attempts to do that have led to the fall of empires and will lead to the fall of this one as well. This slippery slope in Europe will reach the shores of America one day unless people wake up and battle the faithless and athiests now before it's too late. Great article, my sister.

The United States founding fathers believed that separation of church and state was requisite for freedom of religion. That was a tough stance to take in the face of expectations of religious expansion into every facet of life at the time and it is a tough stance to uphold now in the face of the same misguided forces. Madison and Jefferson, etc. were wise men to take the position they did. I hope wise men and women of today and tomorrow will continue the traditions established by them and continue to patch, repair and brace that wall, the greatest protection of religious freedom ever devised.

AMEN Tamera!! EXCELLENT article, well written and to the point! I couldn't agree more. This piece belongs in a Christian magazine like Christianity Today. PLEASE send it in!
Back in 1996, the elementary school in my hometown was forced by the ACLU to remove a portait of Christ that had hung there for over 50 years. They are a well-funded group, and hard to fight.
Thanks for this article!

This is a timely article!
This song about the separation of religion and state isn't worth the paper it's written on. Why do I say that?
Please take a moment to read my little peom: "Banning a Piece of Cloth"
Then scroll down and also read my commments on the issue.
Thank you for posting this article!

I totally agree. Ravenous wolves have entered in, desiring to feed upon the flock. These are dangerous times.

Good article, you have a sure understanding.
Personally I don't like the term 'Faith Healing'. Although we are healed by Faith, it is by Faith in God (Christ) to heal.
The question should then be 'Do you believe Christ has healed you?' for it is by His already accomplished work on the cross we are healed. '- by His stripes you are healed'.
