State wise there's also a push for this. In Idaho-being one of the most Conservative/Republican, they are proposing the state to be a Christian one. A reply to this below shares the concern for divisiveness within it:


Bjorn Handeen, a committee member who described himself as a Republican with libertarian leanings, said he is opposed to any document that puts the government in charge of defining Christianity.

He said the resolution was pushed by a small group within the committee that is bent on creating division among its about 70 members.

"Ultimately, I'm not in favor of dividing us by religion; I'm in favor of uniting us by freedom," Handeen said.

UGH is right. Shows how woefully ignorant of the constitution these are. Just like the democrats.

For one thing, this is only a sample of 316 people. That is hardly representative, and they don't exactly tell you how they drew that sample.

First thing they taught us in media statistics is that you can make a number say anything you want if you know who to sample and how to write the questions.

So where did they draw their sample from? Just saying that it's "316 Republican primary voters" tells us nothing. A Republican primary voter in Kansas is very different from one in Maine. We have no demographics of any kind except gender and age. Urban v. rural is important.

I thought Sharia was going to be established. Either I'm a brain dead sheep who's told what to think and who to hate, or this is Sharia under the guise of "Christianity" that is being established.
The Muslims are taking over the US and something needs to be done before we all start wearing a burqa and eat kebabs.

The attempt to declare that states can choose a favored religion might sound a bit loopy, but it is actually a prominent item on the far-right constitutional law wish list. Conservative legal advocates have been arguing for years that the Establishment Clause only prohibits the federal government from designating a favored religion – not the states. They point out that at the time the first amendment was adopted, many states – including North Carolina – actually had established religions.


Time.com Can North Carolina Declare an Official Religion



The State of Mississippi hereby acknowledges the fact of her identity as a principally Christian and quintessentially Southern state, in terms of the majority of her population, character, culture, history, and heritage, from 1817 to the present; accordingly, the Holy Bible is acknowledged as a foremost source of her founding principles, inspiration, and virtues; and, accordingly, prayer is acknowledged as a respected, meaningful, and valuable custom of her citizens. The acknowledgments hereby secured shall not be construed to transgress either the national or the state Constitution’s Bill of Rights.


Mississippi Amendment Proposal to Become Officially Christian Daily Kos.com




Members of a county Republican Party in Idaho are to take up a measure on Tuesday evening that would declare the state a Christian one to bolster what the proposal calls the "Judeo-Christian bedrock of the founding of the United States."

The issue has sparked debate within the Republican stronghold of northern Idaho, once known for harboring leaders of the so-called Christian identity or white supremacist movement such as the late Aryan Nations founder Richard Butler.


Republicans Propose Declaring Idaho as a Christian State - Reuters.com

Yeah, it's just a poll of 316 1000 well, a lot of people ... there's just no evidence at all that Republicans want this country to become a Christian Theocracy.

Silly leftist/communist/socialist/fascist/islamist/atheist Democrats!!!

Why doesn't the Right Wing conservative states just secede like they are always threatening to do, like Texas, OK, Idaho etc. and embrace fascism like they want; on their own citizens. Complete control over their economics, religion, culture with no federal aid, fed govt. jobs or military support. They can make their militias their standing army.

please just stop the crybaby whineing.

Perhaps because most of them know that without Federal monies most of them would become Third World Countries in a few years?

Besides, it's much more interesting to drag the rest of us down with them. Brings on the Apocalypse faster that way.

"Progress????"

We should have known the Progressives! were behind all this! Dooh!

It doesn't matter that there is the obvious fact that virtually every Republican politician from President to Dog Catcher invokes a "Christian Nation" in their speechifying, it doesn't matter that there are thousands of groups whose stated purpose is to take control of local, State and ultimately the Federal Government to establish God's Dominion on the Earth ...

Wow you're touchy! Did I say you made anything up? Did I even address you in any way?

Read the thread. Along with the 316 item poll, we referenced a 1000 item poll earlier.

I for one am happy to have you here; I hope we're following the intent of your OP?

Well we have California, New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, and all the imported produce too. Plus Canada would help us out


Plus I'm pretty sure I'd have to move. Nothing grows here but peaches, onions, and peanuts.
