You seem to be making blanket judgements. Not all Christians belong to the KKK and are filled with "bloodlust", nor do they protest building of
Mosques or join in the Westboro shenanigans. If they wanted to hold up a sign that said "Evolution is the way....Darwin Rules!" I would support
their right to do that as well.
My oldest kid is an Atheist and she supports peoples right to express their faith. She's a wonderful person, and I support her right to have NO
religious beliefs. What students do of their own accord involving their faith (or lack thereof) and their rights to express those views is legal (even
at school sponsored events) so long as it is the students themselves and not something mandated or instigated by school officials.
Please understand, I make a distinction between Right wing Christians and real Christians. The former are poseurs, cultists, money worshipers who
practice the opposite of what Jesus preached. They are complete hypocrites. If a Muslim cheerleader in a public school, put a Koran passage on the
banner instead, they'd be screaming with spittle drooling from their mouths about Sharia. No one of intellectual honesty can deny that.
The latter are normal, tolerant, loving who follow a version of Jesus characterized by love, care for the poor, the outcasts.If you are tolerant of
your neighbor, consistent in your devotion to Jesus's values and apply them to those most unlike you, if you are sparing with judgment, then you are
the real deal.
Real Christians, like moderate Muslims, must be aggressive in their shaming and calling out of those attempting to take over their religions in the
name of hate. If you do not, you can see what happens just by looking at what has happened to the Republican Party. It has gone from a great and
valued party into a bastion of sick people who are eager to lie and do anything to win, they are anti-science, anti-honor, anti-decency and in general
are the worst kinds of traitors. They pretend Constitutional devotion as they slowly and consistently work to install a "Christian" Taliban-esque
theocracy. If you ask each and every one that if they had the chance to make the U.S. a Christian nation with laws based on the Bible. EVERY ONE of
them will tell you "yes." The only Rights they value are their own as they literally fight against the rights of those not like them.
There is evil in this world and in the United States, it takes the form of the modern Republican Party which is now really just the American Christian
Taliban Party. (Not a hair's width separates a Right wing Christian from a Republican). No action is unjust so long as it works in their favor. Voter
suppression. National efforts to kick people of the lists of eligible voters, widespread election fraud in voter registration, gaming absentee
ballots, etc. Almost no evidence today's exists of the left doing these things, but ample evidence can be found by the Right using these as in fact
STANDARD practice. So long as one does not get caught, the Right genuinely believes anything goes. This is because they are cultists who believe God
is on their side, so any action of theirs is seen as defending their Christan God and it therefor just. No lie too great for Jesus. No crime is a
crime if done to serve Christ!
These are the greatest hypocrites to ever call themselves Americans. Honor, honesty, tolerance, fairness, decency -- all are words that are alien and
repulsive to the American Right. The scariest thing of all though is that few of their group even realize this, so complete is their transformation
into cultists. A Right wing Christian (= modern Republican) can see a Muslim child murdered by a drone and not have a moments pang of loss, guilt,
sense of injustice. That is how far gone they are. Such a thing is perfectly acceptable, in fact, it is even good and just, something to praise. This
is why they are so dangerous.
