One of These Is Not Like the Other . . .

National Religion ???

Okay, Folks – Evil Twin reporting in here --I’m just gonna come out and say it –

If this IS, in fact, a “Christian” nation, then we have to repeal the First Amendment.

If that’s what we want, we can make Christianity the country’s religion.  There have been countries with national religions.  Japan was and still is mostly Shinto, China mostly Buddhist.  England’s national church was once The Church of England, India’s national religion was/is Hindu.

And then, it would probably be a good idea – if we wish to maintain this purity – to pass legislation that ONLY Christians be allowed to immigrate.  If we choose to pass laws to this effect, if that’s what the majority want, we can do this.  It would be perfectly legal.


From our country’s founding til now – that isn’t the kind of country we have set up nor aspired to be.  We have welcomed people from all countries, all backgrounds, all religions, or no religion. And told them they can be citizens of our country.

Like The Lady says: “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.”

But -- for the sake of this argument -- let’s say we DO decide to do this.  The majority of us want to be a “Christian” nation, and we repeal the First Amendment.

The next thing we MUST do – IMMEDIATELY – is change our behavior.  Drastically.

First and foremost we would have to get rid of the humongous military complex and portion of our national budget that goes to fund bombs and submarines and planes and guns and ammunition – you know, weapons of mass destruction.

And then – we have to use that money to “bomb” our enemies with food and medicine and building supplies and send doctors and nurses and medicines and teachers and construction workers to administer the aid.

And then – we need to “bombard” the News Worldwide with pictures and updates – daily – of what we are doing.

And then – when they ask why, tell them – “Jesus sent me.”

“But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;”
– Matthew 5:44

“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
– Chronicles 7:14

Personally, I wouldn’t really have a problem with that.  Being a Christian, I mean; albeit a “liberal” one.  As in because my faith is precious to me, I recognize/acknowledge the same for others.  My faith  has sustained me through good times and bad.  God is as close to me as my prayer, my thought.  I believe He walks with me every day of my life. He has blessed and protected me and my family mightily.

So if we DO decide to repeal the first amendment and this becomes a nation of Christians in reality/fact, it wouldn’t disrupt my life much at all.

Others, on the other hand, might find the results rather daunting.
