Is the creation of The United Theocratic States of America the ultimate Earthly agenda of the Christian Right?
Aren’t the political ambitions of the Christian Right, in fact, diametrically opposed to, and fundamentally incompatible with, the pillars of democracy and the premise of the separation of church and state (as derived from the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution)?
Isn’t it ironic that the Christian Right and their NeoCon political puppets and holier-than-thou sympathizers should hide behind their constitutional/human rights, while conspiring to turn this nation into a Christian/religious theocracy/state?
Forgive them our DEAR FOUNDING FATHERS, for they KNOW EXACTLY what they do.

The worst part is, the Christian Right claims to be defending the work of the Founding Fathers. Roll over, Jefferson.
This, I believe, is the key idea:
"Our civil rights have no dependence on our religious opinions, more than on our opinions in physics and geometry....The legitimate powers of government extend to such acts only as are injurious to others. But it does me no injury for my neighbor to say there are twenty gods, or no god. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg."
Thomas Jefferson "The Statute of Virginia for Religious Freedom"
People have a right to an opinion or belief. They have no right to pass laws based on those beliefs, especially when those laws are harmful to others.
Now we teach fairy tales to children in public school science classes. We called it "discrimination against Christians" to require military reverends to be more non-denominational in their duties outside of actual church ceremonies. We deny civil rights to anyone who doesn't fit the "Adam and Eve" version of a couple. We let people die, because religion fears new sciences.
I could go on, but my point is, religion is being supported by the government in a way that is injurious to others. For those of us who love the Founding Father's vision of America, for those of us who believe that religion mixed with government is a sure recipe for oppression, this is an absolute outrage. It's our country, and we won't be quiet, and we won't "get out". We want the enlightened, free America. We want America as it was intended to be, and we'll keep fighting until America is restored.
Truth has its own legs. Beware of any "truth" that must be propped up by the government.

The United States. Democratic status. Was the source of the controversy at Valley Forge. The founding fathers were democratic. The people who wanted a republic almost starved the entire American army out to prove their point. Then it was set up as a democracy for the people and Thomas Jefferson ended up speaking a lot about it. Then these losers called the puratins came in, representing the republic (big businesses). They fought for almost 100 years to reverse the constitution and all the equal rights stuff. Now you see it, they still try to make it a nazi or king james state. But most of what they have done is public. Because of their joker mentality, now many huge financial industry based entities have more power then people and actually contradict what America stands for. America is supposed to be a democracy, but because of the corrupt idiots who took unrestrained actions. Some things like the federal government. Even though they are a corporation. As a ruling body. It's just a mish mash of good people and dirty people who support business over people.

First, you must realize that America has been Christian since it's creation and has never become some sort of fascist Christian regime that slaughters all those who oppose Christian indoctrination.
Second, you and all the other whiners like you who seem to feel that it's wrong for a government to represent the MAJORITY of it's people (the majority are indeed Christian), need to learn first what seperation of church and state really means and what it was actually intended for before you try to use it to bolster your opinion. Seperation of church and state has NEVER meant that the Government cannot or should not use religion as a basis for it's decision making. It simply means that Congress cannot set up an official religion. What does that boil down to? Basically that Congress cannot set up an official religion that every citizen has to follow, it cannot prohibit religious expression (in this way the decision to not allow prayer in public schools is actually unconstitutional). See you learn these things when you delve more deeply into matters and learn the context of things instead of twisting words in the Constitution to mean what you want it to.Source(s): In fact, according to the founding father's and the consitution, states themselves can set up official religions and have no constitutional obligation to remain seperated from religion in any way shape or form, it is simply on a national level. God you people are morons. You don't have a clue about history and government and instead of learning FACTS about it, you ignore them and continue to be ignorant and then complain about everyone else. The stupidity never ceases to amaze me.

They are always claiming that this and that is unconstitutional. The Constitution was written as a framework, with the Supreme Court as the final word on what is constitutional. What is clear is that church and state are separate. The Christian Right is so hypocritical. So concerned with the rights of the unborn, yet once these babies are born they are the first to complain about their tax dollars going to support these young unwed moms and their babies. Real Christians don't wave their faith like some political banner, they very quietly live their faith with empathy and love for everyone. The Christian Right is a big joke.

First off, get your fact straight. The 1st Amendment to the Constitution
of the United States says nothing about "separation of church and state," What it does say is, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise there of."
What this means is that the government cannot install a State religion
dedicated to a certain religion, meaning that the government cannot say that everyone Must follow a certain religion, but are FREE to follow the religion, or lack thereof, of their choice. The separation of church and state crap is an invention of the left to promote the destruction of all religion, lessening of moral restraints, and promote the omnipotence of government.
It is you and you kind, sir, the true puppets of the left, that needs to wake up, for it is your limited thinking that has brought upon the country the soft tyranny that is "progressively" bringing about the destruction of the dream known as America.
May God have mercy on the likes of you when all is said and done.Source(s): understandingthe Constitution and a thorough disgust of sanctimonious liberals.

""separation of church and state (as derived from the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution)? ""
Nope, that's not in there. But the US Constitution allows us to gather peacefully in demonstration, as in prayer. We now live in a society that threatens legal action on up to jail and fines for praying during public performances. Not mandatory, this is what the people want. The ACLU taking people to court, and that includes teenagers, is not freedom.
And why are you quoting a Bible verse if you have such an issue with a Theocratic United States?
- scaerdrysLv 71 decade ago
Seriously? You think the US is a theocracy? Not even if the Christian right took over would it be any such thing. In fact, not even when the religious right had control of the country was the US a theocracy. I vouch for human rights-I seriously doubt that the Obama admin does as much as you think (for starters, ask yourself, how much of the money that we borrowed from CHINA is coated in human blood? Reflect: this is the country that sold weapons to the Janjaweed in Sudan four years ago to pay for Olympic Opening ceremonies. This is the country that has slave camps for political dissidents, where they make cheap products to sell to world markets. And they have no problems prioritizing, which is the scary thing. A country that would do THAT for Olympic ceremonies is probably willing to do...something else... to have the US in her debt. And you are naive if you think otherwise.). I suggest that you look at Iran if you want to know what a theocracy is. The Imams have to approve people as good Muslims before they even have a shot at running.

The founding Fathers did think highly of separation of church and state. They also thought highly of morals, ooops we're sorry for not letting you turn this country into a cesspool. I guess Rio de Janeiro should take down the statue when the Olympics come to town as well. Wouldn't want to offend anyone would they? Thomas Jefferson also said: "Rebellion to tyranny is obedience to God." Looks like our founding fathers weren't a bunch of morally corrupt cry babies.

Hey, buddy. Do you know any history at all?
The Christians are the ones that formed the abolitionist movement that led to end of slavery. They realized that all men are created in God's image.
Isn't it ironic that the people that most supported slavery, and love Darwin, thought that Blacks were the next evolutionary step above monkeys? And they have not change their views in 100 years.
Do not forgive Them, For They Know Exactly What They Are Doing.
