No, I get it. And I know it is a fact there are Christians who try to influence the political beliefs of their congregation and listeners. If anyone
denies that, then they aren't paying attention or are being deceptive.
However, this is a common occurrence for many different social and religious groups. Every group has their leaders who are trying to get a piece of
the political pie.
Atheists influence politics all the time. Christians influence politics all the time. Pro life and pro choice. Muslims and Jews. Whites, blacks, and
hispanics. Also, every group has their 'pariah leaders' that embarrass and misrepresent those in the group.
This leads us to the next point. Are Christians actually going to 'win?' No. They lose more ground every day. This is a very transparent propaganda
piece. Every group tries to stick their nose in politics and change things to support their causes.
You don't have to worry about the Christians infiltrating the government or making Christian based laws or Christian doctrine being taught in
schools. I don't see Christians imposing their will successfully. Like everyone else, they can try but they're losing.
So I am looking at the bigger picture but you apparently miss it. All groups try to drum up support for their agenda but this piece singles out one
and uses some pretty misleading examples that I explain above to support their agenda.
And I understand our nation is not a Christian nation and do not have any interest in making it one. Even Jesus said 'My Kingdom is not of this
world' so I don't see the point in trying to create it here myself.
But the fact remains, this video is propaganda. And that is said looking at the details as well as the total picture.
