Religion in U.S. Government
It is my experience that non-theists (and many Christians) want church and state separate because mixing the two can have negative consequences that impose a rigorous belief on everyone in the United States. Were this to happen, arrest would happen for anything deemed against the teachings of the Bible. I don’t even want to thing about that.
Why are Christians here in the United States afraid of keeping church and state separate? I really can’t say as I’ve never been a fundamentalist Christian. It seems that they are worried that the moral underpinnings of this country are at risk if they don’t take it back. I’m afraid that is exactly what will happen if the fundamentalist Christians "take it back". They are already waging what many of us feel is a war on women. All over the country, there are states whose government is made up of a majority of fundamentalist Christians who are pushing their religious agenda. So far they have taken money away from clinics that do abortion (Texas), moved up fetus age by about a month (Tennessee), and making birth control illegal (Virginia). This is just the tip of the iceberg and why non-theists do not want anyone's religion imposed on others.
The real question is where does it stop?
Please join me in the forum if you would like to discuss this.
*I apologize if I do not have all the facts right in regards to the above states. The point, however, remains clear. Non-theists and those who aren’t Christian are having their rights taken away because of other's religious beliefs.
