    Conservative xenophobes and conspiracy neurotics are wringing their hands, and lamenting the rise of Islam in our country, which they claim will bring about the implementation of Sharia law.

    However, whether out of ignorance or the belief that religious freedom and the first amendment does not apply equally to all religions, they fail to focus on the real threat to secularism.

    We are talking about Christian Dominionism.

    While there is no reason to believe that the few Muslims in our government harbor a desire to usurp secularism, there are appointed and elected Christians in our government right now – or are aspiring to high office-who have openly expressed the belief that the bible is superior to the constitution and cavorting with those who are like minded.


    It is worth remembering that Barton is not only an influential Republican activist but also runs one of the main super PACs supporting Ted Cruz.

    Barton is also the long time chairman of the Texas Republican Party

    So, you say that Trump and the others did not seek out this type of support and do not actually believe this drivel ? Well he seeks them out!

    Be afraid of what?

    People who base their false claim to moral authority on their professed belief in the ridiculous are gonna get you? lol....


    Not to worry! Just call down some fire from the sky and in one or two complete sentences they will be reduced to dust and ashes.

    Give it a try...

    Who said anything about ignoring them? I've been doing the exact opposite since at least the second grade...

    Their false claim to moral authority is absurd.

    Why be afraid?

    Like I said one or two coherent sentences would easily cause the false kingdom based entirely on lies and ignorance to crumble.


    Where is your faith in truth?

    "Christian Dominionism-The Real Threat to Our Secular Government"

    It’s a threat to the religious liberty of all Americans, including Muslims and those free from faith.

    This is one of the more dangerous manifestations of social conservatism: those on the right who are hostile to settled, accepted Establishment Clause jurisprudence obeying the Framers’ mandate that church and state remain separate, ensuring that citizens are free from being compelled to abide by religious doctrine and dogma through force of law.

    Such is the arrogance and hubris of conservative Christians, their hateful, repugnant, and wrongheaded notion that the United States is a ‘Christian Nation,’ that they have the ‘right’ to codify Christian dogma into secular law all must follow, and that their errant, subjective beliefs and ‘values’ take precedent over others’ beliefs and values.

    the so called "values voters" (a laughable term) have been very quiet this election season. they know that dumb donald is the last person in the world who represents their religious beliefs. the only honorable ones have been mormons who are disgusted by donald.

    The real risk to liberty and freedom is secular humanism.

    Atheistic governments only killed 200 million people in the 20th century. Maybe we should give atheism another chance.
