AMERICA IS NOT A CHRISTIAN COUNTRY!
America is NOT a Christian country.
America is NOT a religious country.
In America the separation of Church and State set
forth in the Constitution is absolute.
America equally welcomes members of all religions
and those with no religion.
No one religion, denomination or sect, or its
specific beliefs, is preferred over other religions, denominations or
sects.And the religious are not
preferred over the non-religious.
And most definitely the specific religious beliefs
of an individual religion, denomination or sect must NEVER be legislated.
Legislating specific religious beliefs is especially
contrary to conservative political philosophy and policy.The basic fundamental tenet of conservative
political philosophy is limited government, and the protection and maximizing
individual rights.True conservatives
believe that the government should have minimal involvement in the personal and
business life of the individual.The
so-called “evangelicals” of the “Christian right” want the government to tell
individuals how to live their lives.
Religious beliefs may motivate involvement in
politics as a practice of good citizenship and a way to help one’s fellow man
(or woman), and the religious can preach the gospel, or their version or
interpretation of the gospel, to those who will listen, but the religious
cannot force those of different beliefs, or no beliefs, to live their lives
according to the specific individual beliefs and rules of their specific
religion, denomination or sect.
