A recent string of Leftist tirades has lumped ‘white-conservative-Christians’ with white supremacists,stating that white Christians,
especially fundamental and orthodox Christian groups, are racist. The Left-liberal ranters also place the growing gun violence, terrorist attacks, and every one different issues facing the state on conservative Christians holding firm to Biblical teachings. This clearly is an absurd string of blame shifting. Fear and unrest in Nations have historically been linked to individuals straying from Biblical teachings such as the Ten Commandments. Which raises the question, should America remain a Christian Nation? Is America’s fate tied to following the Christian God and His law? Let us know, and share with everyone thus we are able to get the reality of this matter out and stop the ignorant rants dividing this country!
The commencement Fathers failed to produce a profane government as a result of they dislikable faith. Many were believers themselves.
Yet they were cognizant of the risks of theocracy union.
They had studied and even seen first-hand the difficulties that church-state partnerships spawned in Europe. During the yank colonial amount, alliances between faith and government created oppression and tyranny on our own shores.
Many colonies, as an example, had provisions limiting public office to “Trinitarian Protestants” and other forms of laws designed to hold up the spiritual sentiments of the politically powerful. Some colonies had formally established churches and taxed all voters to support them, whether or not they were members or not. Dissenters faced imprisonment, torture and even death. These arrangements led to bitterness and sectarian division. Many people began agitating for an end to “religious tests” for situation, tax subsidies for churches and other forms of state endorsement of religion. Those who led this charge were not anti-religion. Indeed, many were
members of the clergy and people of deep piety. They argued that true religion failed to want or need the support of government.
Respect for religious pluralism gradually became the norm. When Thomas Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence, for example, he spoke of “unalienable rights endowed by our Creator.” He used generic spiritual language that every one spiritual teams of the day would reply to, not narrowly Christian language traditionally employed by nations with state churches. While some of the country’s founders believed that the government should espouse Christianity, that viewpoint soon became a losing proposition. In Virginia, Patrick Henry argued in favor of tax support for Christian churches. But Henry and his cohorts were within the minority and lost that battle. Jefferson, Madison and their allies among the state’s spiritual teams all over Virginia’s established church and helped pass the Virginia Statute for spiritual Liberty, a 1786 law guaranteeing religious freedom to all.We the General Assembly of Virg
