Death for what you Believe

I found this most interesting what do you all think.

We all post on here about our different beliefs and wonder how one person belief can be so different then the other. I Thank God that we live in a country where we are Free to do just that. If someone wants to be a atheist, agnostic, Christian or what ever he has the right to do just that.

I just wonder how it is to live in a Country where the church runs everything including the Government and tells you what to believe or not believe under the penalty of Death.

PS: I hope no one gets angry at the Muslims people for this, as I know and have worked with many of what I call Christ like Muslim people. This is what will happen to any country where Church and State of any religion comes together.

Sad to say but many good people & Christians alike were killed by the Church in years past for nothing more than disagreeing with their teachings. The Church was so powerful then is forced itself on everyone even Kings and Rulers were subjects to its power. One reason why our founding Fathers made a Law that keeps the Government from making or enforcing Religious beliefs in our Country. Any Country where the Religion or Belief is in power you will always have persecution. But knowing history it always has a way of repeating itself.

First Amendment – Religion and Expression:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
