    I want a country where you can get a job, buy a cake, walk down the street holding hands with your same-sex partner, get a script for birth control from the pharmacy by your office, send your kid to public school and know that he won't have to learn "intelligent design" in Biology class. Because you won't be discriminated against for not being Christian and/or for being something some Xtians hate, like gay, atheist, Muslim, etc.

    I want a country where you can put 10 million lights on your house at Christmas time, creches galore in your yard, and have Christmas music playing from loudspeakers (as long as this doesn't disturb your neighbors of course).

    I want a country where you can't put that stuff in front of City Hall or in the public park or school.

    I want a country where your pagan neighbors can have a bonfire on Yule (winter solstice), and dance outside around it skyclad, or not, and as long as they don't set your place on fire it's all good.

    I want a country where our laws are based on secular precedent and established case law.... not the texts of any man-made religion.

    Mostly I want a country where we respect each other's choices, differences, lifestyles and somehow manage to find common ground "In order to establish a more perfect union."
    Heaven or Hell does exist but it's just different things to different people. It's more a concept that predates most religions. In the religious sense, no one knows if this otherworldly heaven exists or doesn't.

    I would like to live in a country where people like you don't condemn me for my spiritual beliefs just because you don't share them.
    Common sense is not a gift, it's a punishment because you have to deal with everyone who doesn't have it.

    I would recommend you apply for refugee status to come to the US, but you lack the Einstein qualities we are looking for.......
