Ten Commandments On Buildings
  
If they aren't going to put something up that is a tribute to ALL religions then they shouldn't put them up at all. I think the government is just too lazy to do the religion research and too dumb to come up with a compromise.



Resurrection Eggs
  
This is why pretty much all Christian holidays are situated near Pagan ones. Christmas and Yule (another name for the Winter Solstice btw,) Ostara and Easter, Mabon and Thanksgiving, Samhain and Halloween, etc.


Resurrection Eggs
  
Easter is Christian. The symbols however come from the Pagan holiday Ostara which is the first day of spring. Rabbits, eggs, chicks, lambs, etc. are symbols of fertility hence their association with spring when animal babies are born. In the old days, when Christians were gaining footholds in the world, they would put a lot of their holidays close to the Pagan ones in a way of saying "well when youre done with your celebrations come join ours."


Ten Commandments On Buildings
  
I think they should take off "in God we trust" on the currency. I think there was a debate about this in Congress once too. There's no way they could fit every single religious symbol/saying on any coin, much less a bill. There'd be no room for the presidents faces and such.


Thoughts On Reincarnation Demons
  
Yeah this subject always fasinated me. When really little kids start talking about being "grown up" and talk about doing things you wouldnt think theyd know about, often times they're letting you know about their past lives. This has been documented numerous times. They often lose their past life memories after about 6 or 7 though as they start to learn new things.


Disobedient Children Blues
  
Good for you Erik. I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who thinks spanking is wrong. Its odd how if you hit an adult you can go to jail for assault, but if you hit a child, someone smaller and weaker then you, oh sure, that's okay. I think we need to follow Denmark and other countries in banning it.


Does Polygamy Still Exist
  
I have many Pagan friends and family members and believe me it's not as rampant as one blogger has said. (Just a tad offended here.) To me though, polygamy is the same as adultry which can happen in any faith.


TV Kid's Shows Banned
  
We let our kids watch what they want so long as we're in the same room when they're watching TV, and it's age appropriate of course.. If we're not home then no TV. (We keep the TV in a locked cabinet otherwise.) If we see a show that's questionable we give it 3 chances to improve. If it doesnt, it's banned. We banned Invader Zim due to Zim being rather mean & self absorbed. I thought it was a rather cool show but not for kids.


Thoughts On Reincarnation Demons
  
Do you think one could come back as an insect? That'd be really bad. I guess if you did some really bad stuff in a past life it'd be appropriate tough. Like they say people who have deformities and/or chronic illness were people who did bad things in their previous life. Like if someone cut off someone's arm for whatever reason they'd be born with a deformed arm or even no arms. One can only imagine what Hitler was born into.
