Religion should be an important factor in your daily life. There should be a deep and personal relationship between you and your God. While religion can be shared, it can never be forced.
But that is exactly what many activist Christians involved in politics wish to do, convert the heathens via the legal system. They had these same type of people back in Jesus’s time. They were called Pharisees.
Activist Christians are more dangerous than the worst activist judge. It is the job of a judge to interpret the law. A Christian’s sole job is to live a good life.
Some “Christians” have gotten confused about this, in their quest for power over their fellow man. It’s past time for true Christians to set them straight. Call them out, challenge their hypocrisy where ever you see it, in the Pulpit, Papacy, or on the street.
Katherine Harris is a Republican from Florida. She had these things to say, in a recent interview with The Florida Baptist Witness, the weekly news journal of the Florida Baptist State Convention.
Our nation was founded as a secular nation. It was made quite clear in the writings of the founding fathers and in some of the early treaties of this nation.
…In the eighty-five essays that make up The Federalist, God is mentioned only twice (both times by Madison, who uses the word, as Gore Vidal has remarked, in the “only Heaven knows” sense). In the Declaration of Independence, He gets two brief nods: a reference to “the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God,” and the famous line about men being “endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights.”…
In a 1797 treaty with the nation of Tripoli they said it outright:
Although this was the 339th recorded vote, it was only the third unanimous vote in the US Senate’s history.
You can read the entire article on this subject at the Nation web site. It’s quite well written and very damning to the claims of those like Kathleen Harris who want to remake America into something it has never been.
She says this is permissible in a 501-3c organization but, I think the IRS would probably disagree.
Here is another gem from the interview.
What arrogance! Anyway here is the interview, in case you would like to read it.
I never have explained just exactly what a Theocracy is, so here you go!
Inflected Form(s): plural -cies
Etymology: Greek theokratia, from the- + -kratia -cracy
1 : government of a state by immediate divine guidance or by officials who are regarded as divinely guided
2 : a state governed by a theocracy
A theocracy is what the Taliban in Afghanistan was, the government of Iran is, what the nation of Iraq will probally end up being, and what activist Christians want the United States of America to become.
That brings us to our next in a series of videos on the drive to redefine America as a theocracy by certain individuals including some in the American government.
This October 11, 2004 video is of Joan Bokaer describing the rise of Dominionism in the U.S. government. Joan explains how the Religious Right took over the Republican Party, and how President Bush, along with his Religious Right allies in Congress, are attempting to transform the United States into a Christian nation.
