  • From my journal at http://slashdot.org/comments.pl?sid=109296&cid=9290672 [slashdot.org]

    I went to the Republican Convention for the state of Washington this weekend, and one of the proposed resolutions was:

    The United States of America is a Christian nation. As such, all people of all faiths may worship freely, as long as nothing objectionable to the Christian faith is practiced. And, as such, the foundational principles of Christianity [found in the founding fathers' documents] should be taught in all public school

  • I don't see how the first part ("Biblical theocratic republics") is related to the second part. Just because both groups call themselves Christians and are on the same side of the political scale? As noted in the following comments on Slashdot to my other comment, most people don't want to abolish the First Amendment as it pertains to freedom of religion. They may disagree on what it means, but very few people -- including very few at Patrick Henry -- want America to be a "Christian theocratic republic."
