I want USA to be great again, And I have nothing but the utmost respect for most of you guys. Besides, I dont really care where people come from. Its what we say and do, or not say and not do, that define us. not where we come from or the color of our skin etc.
Peace, and lets hope for a better future for all of us.

I'm getting increasingly provoced by americans who talk about God and how great He is, yet live by some absurd summary of the bible they've past down through the generations. It seems to me like most american Christians will take from the bible what they want, and forget the rest. They even punish their kids for not obeying the commandments, or other rules set by God, and yet the grown-ups themselves do nothing to honor God's will or what he has created.
Well, what about not lying to yourself, and wake up and put some action behind your religion. If I was you, I'd be ashamed.
I agree with you on this much. Naturally you wasnt talking about all Americans. Only the sort you mention above. I do not personally think America is the greatest nation but there are problems caused by religion everywhere in our world. Equally In the UK they have British Muslims turning their houses into bomb factories. This does not mean all Muslims are destructive. The American dream is liberty is it not. With the sort of people you mention above that dream will remain only a dream. Freedom is impossible when you are straight jacketed by religion. America is raising programmed robots by forcing its children to eat spoon fed dogma. Peace.

I'm just sick of hearing about God when americans speak on t.v (yes, my channels of information is unreliable and corrupt),
and at the same time seeing the obvious; most are not living what they teach, even with the resources to do so.
It's the same in other countries as well, but in Europe, we don't speak so loudly about our beliefs, and thus are harder to arrest when we act like selfish bastards.
In a lot of religions, and also in different "branches" of christianity, treating your body and mind with respect is a way to honor God. I just don't understand how people who preach the word of God can justify the gluttony and the greed, and in turn the pain they inflict on others.

Simple..... fear of going to hell. Most people don't really care about practicing what they believe. They are just afraid of burning in flames when they die because people put those ideas in their mind and it spreads like wildfire. Quite brilliant and corrupt. I forgot who said this, but I read this in a different thread and think it rings truth.... "Religion is for those afraid of hell, Spirituality is for those who have been there."
I said that I think. You are quite right in what you say. They are afraid not to believe in God incase they go to hell. They must have missed the bit about sinful actions sending them there. Peace.

What VNV Nation is to you, Killswitch Engage is to me. My favorite band in the world. And they sing Christian lyrics too, but I know you wouldn't like that.
Thats one of the most awesome tracks I´ve heard in a while. Good video aswell.
