U.S. is a secular nation
Friday, April 17, 2015
Patriots! America is a secular, not a Christian nation. This is by design of the Founding Fathers. Read the Constitution! This is also, by the way, the stance of modern “3-percenters.” It is clear that some authors of Bulletin letters haven’t been doing their homework.
In the article, “Are you really a three percenter?” on http://www.anamericanwarning.com/2015/03/are-you-really-a-three-percenter/ Look at number one on the list of “you are probably not a three-percenter if … ”
“1. You believe that the United States is a Christian Nation.”
Having said that, it is true that Christians are under attack in much of the Islamic world. This is unjustifiable and, in too many cases, horrific. Policy needs to reflect reality and, at present, it does not.
In the U.S., however, you are free to believe and practice any religion as you wish as long as you do not seek to limit the liberty or well-being of others by invoking a particular religious doctrine. The war on Christianity is a paranoid Fox News fantasy and part of their divide and conquer strategy. Don’t fall for it.
