We are offically a Theocratic Christian nation, our war in the middle east is against Islam and Muslims, and we wish to, in true Christian fashion,
export our religon and convert our enemies at the end of a sword.
Nothing I have seen suggests that this conclusion is valid, and I think it's driven more by political hyperbole than fact.
My vote had nothing to do with God or religion, and I doubt I'm the only one. There are religious voting blocs in America, and some Christians make
up some of them.
There are other religious voting blocs as well, such as the Marxist religious bloc, which worships government as a god, seeks to wipe out all other
religions (like all religious fundamentalists do) and establish itself as the leader of a new Marxist theocracy, as has been done elsewhere with
Unlike the Christians, the Marxists are free to proselytize in public schools with no restrictions whatsoever.
If America is a theocracy, it is a Marxist theocracy.
Partisanship As A Religion
I am not interested in being under the thumb of any sort of religious group, whether it admits to being one or not.
Both major U.S. parties appeal to voters on religious grounds. That's just one of many reasons why I refuse to join either of them.
When I vote, it is for what I see as the lesser evil.
Such is the nature of American politics these days, when we are given a dubious choice between different brands of religion instead of different
brands of politics.
Ever and anon.
