Healing the rift between Church and State
Healing the rift between Church and State:
A Slate article
on how America,
a nation founded by secularistic Freemasons during the Enlightenment,
became One Nation Under God, with monotheism of a particularly Protestantoid
stripe its official core value. (Well, either that or fast-food franchises.)
Not surprisingly, it had a lot to do with the McCarthy Era, and the fight
against Godless Communism. (Even now, atheism is seen as un-American, and
surveys show that many if not most Americans wouldn't trust an atheist with
public office. What would Jefferson have said?)
I wonder what effects a War Without End against bomb-wielding religious
fanatics would have. Perhaps the only good to come of it will be that
people will come out of it not trusting those religion-spouting sonsofbitches.
