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.
