    No comments on for that one. Too bad, would be very highly entertaining.

    Now we are a post-Christian Nation.

    We never were. That’s the point.

    There are a lot of people who don’t want it to be true, but that doesn’t mean anything.

    You get to pick one:

    a. The First Amendment

    , or

    b. Christian nation.

    We picked “a” and that’s how it is.

    Now, take the UAE, for example. They got to pick:

    a. Some form of free expression and thought

    , or

    b. Islam.

    They picked “b” and that’s how it is, though they could change that, as we could too.

    Both changes are a lot of work and darn near impossible, due to the long established law in play.

    Notably,

    Without a First Amendment, we could be an Islamic nation, or a Buddhist one, or whatever. Does that make sense? Would you prefer we do that? Or that we could?

    In some parts of the world, you get killed for being a Christian. Does that make sense?

    Of course not! And that’s why it is very, very, very important to understand how and why things are the way they are here in the USA.

    You actually enjoy very considerable religious freedom Broadway. You enjoy that precisely because we aren’t a religious nation. Wanting your particular religion to be “the one” is awful selfish, and would very likely result in the same kinds of ugly events we see elsewhere that did choose religion to be part of the highest law of the land.

    It may seem like a great thing! You would be right! You would be “in the club”, so to speak. But you could just as easily be out, yet still having your convictions, tortured, oppressed, or dead too.

    Really, I find it completely amazing how many people really don’t understand this whole thing and the very high value it has and how much of the world wishes they had what we have here.

    And sadly, way too many of us don’t even understand! Your average immigrant does. They actually have to learn these things, our history, etc… and they do it to gain citizenship in a great nation, free to be who they are, unlike where they may have come from.

    While we have people here grunting about this and that who have no fucking clue.
