"the government of the United States of America is not in any sense founded on the Christian Religion"
Thomas Jefferson, article 11 Treaty of Tripoli.
The satanic troll that posted this "question" is obviously spewing utter nonsense. The USA was founded as a Christian nation. The whole idea of freedom of religion was for Christians to have freedom to live the Christian lifestyle in this Christian nation. There weren't any satanists (non-Christians, since anyone who is not a true Christian is serving Satan) when our great country was founded. Well, maybe with exception of a few Catholics. There was no Mooslims. There was no Jews, at least none that were visible to the society at large. But there was persecution of Christians in Europe, and that's the reason, the ONLY reason, why we have separation of church and state.
Also notice, that we say separation of "church and state." Not "mosque and state". Not "synagogue and state." Not "Church and state." There never been any forethought of the nightmare of unAmerican religions that we are seeing now. As Christians, it is our duty to vote in good true Christians into every government office, and to take our country back from the heathens that currently occupy the positions of power.
If it's such a great Christian thing to vote, when is the next election for Savior? Will Jesus be a candidate?
Voting is a democratic thing to do, because the country was founded on democratic secular principles, not Christian ones. Jesus is the King of kings, and you don't vote for kings. Christianity is, by its nature, anti-democratic. You want America to be built on a Christian foundation? Do away with the office of President and establish a monarchy based on Divine Providence, ignoring the Magna Carta, and ignoring the electoral process.
"Reverend" Cooper's post oozes a lack of education in history and civics, not to mention a poor grasp of what makes a Satanist. Those dollars shelled out to the Bible indoctrination centers was completely wasted.
Nonchristians populated this country long before the European Christians came along to found the Republic. None of the founding documents (which leaves out the Declaration of Independence, since I know that will be waved about) of the Republic mention any god or deity, nor do they mention Christianity as the chosen religion for the Republic and its people.
The Founding Fathers not only recognized, but sought good relations with, Muslim countries/governments.
Granted, the initial population of the U.S. was primarily Christian or monotheistic Europeans, but that in no way meant that other peoples or their religions were to be excluded or treated as any less than Christianity. After all, not all the Founding Fathers were necessarily Christian...especially of the type that your average Southern Baptist would recognize as Christian.
This nation was founded as a secular Republic, using the ancient Greek and Roman forms of governance as a model. Its governed by rule of law, not theological whims.
Christians are totally free to practise their faith in peace. Churches abound. Christian TV and radio broadcasts 24/7. Too bad they can't be happy enjoying such freedoms and feel the need to elbow into everyone else's freedoms, as well.
Rev Cooper is craZier than a shit house rat!
Go away, you pagan child.
Sorry, rev, but I am an atheist and any god(s) worshiped would be a ridiculous concept to me. As ridiculous as your answer.
I know that you're a satanist. In Matthew 12:30, Jesus tells us: "He that is not with me is against me" This make syou a satanist. It is by your rejection of the Jesus that you actively worship satan. You should feel sorry for yourself, satan will not Save you.
A apt observation. How can I reject something I can not believe? We are through here, wackaloon.
But surely in a free country where voting for leadership is held in high regard someone would be free to not "vote" for the same savior or god you "vote" for, Coop. In fact, wouldn't they they be free to not "vote" for a savior or god at all? Do you think it's right to eternally punish someone for they way they vote?
