Right now we are on the brink of collapse. We have an over-inflated bureaucratic mess as our government, and it's filled with "representatives"
that don't even understand their constituents it seems.
The political parties have devolved into ad hominem and false accusations, a literal feces throwing fest it seems. They are unreliable, unstable, and
unintelligent (notwithstanding my own ad hominem's here apparently).
Since the establishment of the current American government we have been a nation of Christian beliefs at our core. It seems now however that between
the government and current popular belief that our nation should not be upheld to these standards. They believe, for whatever reason, that the
Christian ideology should be done away with and that it holds no truth or true value. They also believe that it forces them to become "Christian"
somehow, or that if you aren't Christian you aren't truly represented or respected.
Do you believe that ATS? Do you believe that Christian ideology has no place in the government whatsoever?
If I were to have my say, in certain ways and areas:No, it should not.
The prayers in congress, during the inauguration speech, etc should not be present. That doesn't mean that they should not be allowed. If you feel
you must, you may. We are a free country and do not hold you to it. But when it comes to religious freedoms and laws, I feel the Christian beliefs are
It is just and righteous to have murder, rape, and theft to be illegal. These are evil things without exception to all but certain situations of
theft. When a man has to go out and steal $100 from a bank just to keep himself in a rehab facility it is said and should be forgiven, the "victim"
of the situation reimbursed perhaps (in a just world the bank would commit it as a donation to charity and forgive the man).
If you eliminate all of the Christianity from the government, you would lose so many things you take for granted and that give you the freedom you
But now is the time for our nation to make a decision. The founders established our government on a Christian foundation because it is truly justice
for all. It was the right thing at the time:We were (and I truly believe within the population, still are) a Christian nation, a nation that was kind
and caring, that would help others in need without the expectation of recompense. A nation that was brought together under the idea of a truly free
society. One that allowed themselves to be governed, not controlled as we are today. The ineffable foundation of Justice and Kindness we were once
built on is questioned now...
So what say you ATS? Whether you are American or foreign, I would like to hear your opinions (just state which you are if you would please). But
American's, I beg of you.
To maintain what once was, we must stay that country.
