not sure why so many people hate admitting that America is a Christian nation, the separation of church and state isn't saying religion shouldn't be part of government,it's saying the church like say the Catholic church or whatever church shouldn't be dictating laws. wish people would understand that suppressing religion isn't what the Constitution meant by separation of church and state.
a theocracy will allow the church powers to place pressure onto the people to reflect the values and principles the leaders of the religious leaders wishes to instill, weather the people believe in those values or principles or not.
33 "Again, you have heard that it was said to the people long ago, `Do not break your oath, but keep the oaths you have made to the Lord.' 34 But I tell you, Do not swear at all: either by heaven, for it is God's throne; 35 or by the earth, for it is his footstool; or by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the Great King. 36 And do not swear by your head, for you cannot make even one hair white or black. 37 Simply let your `Yes' be `Yes,' and your `No,' `No'; anything beyond this comes from the evil one.
