Sometimes I feel as though the effort of fighting the battle for rational thought is wasted energy. No, not really wasted...but I am frequently demoralized. It is just such an uphill push...one step forward...three quarters of a step backward...sometimes even completely lost ground.
The State of South Carolina had passed.... unanimously by both houses of the legislature, with the active support of Lt. Gov. Andre Bauer...a measure that provided for the sale of a “Christian” license plate featuring a cross, a stained-glass window and the words “I Believe.”
Now comes the good part. A federal judge, ruling in the case of a lawsuit filed by the Americans United for Separation of Church and State, banned the production and sale (issued a preliminary injunction) of the plate, based upon the doctrine of the separation of church and state.
The ridiculousness of this state supported effort to meld church and state is that the tag proposal was passed in the first place. And isn't this the method of the Christian soldiers? It is the method of "see what we can get away with while we drain the resources of the 'evil ones' (that's us...the non delusional).
And this brings me to the point of this post. MONEY. The organizations that fight the "delusional" and their efforts of dominionism have to have money to keep up these battles. Please consider that the ACLU, the Americans United for Separation of Church and State and the other organizations that are working to suppress the efforts of over zealous Christians need our support.
