just had this thought~ the next time you are told this is a Christian nation, founded on christian principles, reply
" well, if that is the case, that would make this a White nation as well."
See if people will start saying that now; the point is, the argument that they use rests on parameters that would make this being a rich, white, slave owning nation as well. due to the current climate of political correctness, I doubt anyone would ever say that publicly~ this would be a good way to force the hand.
I can't stand that bull crap argument. We were NOT founded on christian principles. The founding fathers went out of their way to ensure that the state did not get in the business of faith. So much so, they put it in the first amendment.
This would also be a nation of hemp growers -- just sayin'
thats my point. when people say we are a christian nation they are cherry picking the things that we originally were. Sure, the country had some foundation in christianity, like the rest of the modern world. we were also founded on slavery, white supremacy, and other defunct ideas. The real founders of this nation were puritans (pre founding fathers) who's views are shared by very few people nowadays, but you never hear "this is a puritan nation." the truth is the constitution supports christianity no more than it decries slavery or the persecution/subjugation of minorities. if they want to return this country to its roots, really, i want to hear them advocate an agrarian based economy with a workforce that is mostly slaves. if they advocate that, then I'll say "you're right, thats the foundation of this country~ now go to hell."
"we were also founded on slavery, white supremacy, and other defunct ideas."
You forgot genocide.
