Easter is NOT a US federal holiday.

Currently, Christmas is the only non-secular federal holiday in the US.

As for why that is a holiday, that would be because Congress decided to make it one. No more, no less.

You will note that the holidays apply only to federal US employees, though others may *choose* to follow them, because the US Constitution does not give Congress the right to make *national* holidays.

The fact that a single federal holiday is made for Christians (though it should be noted there are many other non-Christian celebrations at roughly the same time), does NOT somehow mean that that the US has one "official" religion.

One should not confuse the *influence* of a majority religion on government with an actual official religion.

Its saddening to see how despicable people be, and it is heart wrenching when it is encouraged by so many.

I guess I shouldn't be surprised; these people worship a cruel and petty God.

@5Cats: What you have to remember is that many of the people who came to "the new world" came here seeking religious freedom.

So, when the founding fathers decided to build a new government, they sought to create one that would protect religion from government and keep religion from trying to set governmental policies (preventing religions from establishing religious-based laws that would affect those who were not of those religions).

The Supreme Court has repeatedly backed the interpretation that "neither a state nor the Federal Government can pass laws which aid one religion, aid all religions, or prefer one religion over another". So, yes, the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution is also meant to provide freedom from religion in our government, so that people can practice religion freely.

P.S. If bias caused poor ratings in cable news, Fox News would be off the air.

*sighs*...I love how people pick and choose things from the bible to follow. Gotta love it though, you've got the freedom to hate, but the moment you need freedom to love there is a wall.

Wait.

You are sending me a link of the opinion of one ultra conservative Christian? Of course Christians think that.

"2) the preference by the U.S. government of one religion over another"

How is that ambiguous? Using Christian principles to create laws instead of Muslim principles, Jewish principles, Wiccan principles, or Atheist principles is wrong.

No religion or set of beliefs should get preferential treatment from the state.

1st Amendment: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion. Prohibits 1) the establishment of a national religion by Congress, or 2) the preference by the U.S. government of one religion over another.

That quite clearly in my mind states that I have a freedom to not have religious views forced upon me by the government. There may be people who oppose gay marriage for other reasons, but the vast majority oppose it for religious reasons. It is the reason teh head of Chick-fil-a actively opposes it and it is the stated reason "these kooks" in the video oppose it.

"You're bound to accidentally make a valid point"

I think that was a very valid point and I'm pretty sure I am destroying you just the way I did last time we debated an issue. But I guess it would take impartial 3rd party arbitration.

"You seriously believe that EVERY SINGLE person who opposes "gay marriage" is a Bible-Belting Christian?"

I said "these kooks" as in these in the video (did you watch the video?) as in the lady that says "biblical views" and "god's views" and the guy that says "this book says marriage is between man and a woman that's the way god ordained it" while he LITERALLY beats his bible.

"Freedom "from" religion? Not in the Constitution, sorry, your fail is epic. "

@HolyGod: You seriously believe that EVERY SINGLE person who opposes "gay marriage" is a Bible-Belting Christian? (Or Muslim, eh?)

NOT ONE SINGLE person has other, valid reasons for keeping marriage the way it is? It HAS TO be the BIBLE.

Seriously man, you trollin? Freedom "from" religion? Not in the Constitution, sorry, your fail is epic.

Do "Double Down" again though! You're bound to accidentally make a valid point, sooner or later, completely by accident...

God tastes like chicken.

Except the bacon god, whose name we never mention. (It's Trevor, but we never mention it.)

"REALLY @HolyGod? I think it is YOU who needs education!
Seperation of Church and State means the STATE will not oppress ANY religions views! "

Exactly. Including the view that there is no god. So when someone brings a bible or any other holy book and points to it as an authority on marriage or any other subject and thus the basis for which we should legally define anything, he clearly doesn't understand the distinct separation of church and state. It is not just a freedom of religion it is also a freedom from religion.

Seriously man, you cannot honestly be THAT ignorant?

You know what.....let these people eat all the chick-fil-a all they want....in fact, I hope they all gorge on it. Chick-fil-a is awful for you and maybe when they all get diabetes and hypertension then they'll think twice about being so angry about homosexuality and get angry at the things that really matter.....like health care

Suicism, that wasn't local coverage; that was HLN, formerly known as CNN Headline News. They're part of CNN, and they're a bunch of lying liberal @$$holes.

Another thing, did you notice that they didn't even mention how this idea got started in the first place? I'll leave it to you to see of you can figure that out from your left-wing biased "news" sources. Lots of luck with that.

Ollie, you know I'm the last person you need to preach to about the excesses of city governments trampling on the first amendment. However, what you're describing here sounds more like a conclusion you came to on your own, outside of what is presented to us by this broadcast. Sure, SOME of the people attending chick-fil-a's today may be there to advance the cause of free expression, but clearly there are plenty of people there with bible in hand. You want to cherry-pick and at the same time accuse another news organization of bias. Not that you're a news organization Ollie, I'm sure your ratings would be through the roof

Let's save our outrage for clearer examples of media bias, not local coverage sh*t like this with some poor camera crew driving to the nearest chik-fil-a and getting the consensus of opinion there for all you or I know. Unless you were there, then I want footage.

Obviously, Suicism, YOU didn't notice that they didn't even give the correct REASON for this. People here weren't there to support Dan Cathy's stance on gay marriage; they were there to support the 1st amendment right to freedom of expression after some Democrat Nazi pricks like Chicago mayor Rham Emanuel and Boston mayor Thomas Menino threatened to block Chkck-fil-A from opening restaurants because they disagreed with the owner's position on a gay marriage, which, BTW was the same as Obama's position till he decided he needed to raise campaign $$$ from the gay lobby. But did you notice that CNN didn't even MENTION this side of the story?

Also, did you notice the selection of supporters they chose to put on the air? Out of a crowd of thousands, do you seriously think that these were the most intelligent and articulate people they could find? That's why no one trusts them for honest news coverage anymore, and their ratings show it.
