Outrage about Religious History Week
I am UNHAPPY in a big way. How dare Congress propose such a huge bag of nonsense!
“Affirming the rich spiritual and religious history of our Nation’s founding and subsequent history and expressing support for designation of the first week in May as `American Religious History Week’ for the appreciation of and education on America’s history of religious faith.”
First, what follows in the resolution would be false. America was founded for the people, by the people. Not for God, by God. Second, what is Congress doing blatently crossing the line by endorsing a specific religion? Third, why doesn’t Congress work on something constructive and important for a change!
This is bad, really bad. For everyone. There is no good outcome if the U.S. continues down the road to becoming a Christian theocracy. We’ve been well on our way with Bush. Huckabee would be his worthy successor. No matter what religion you are or if you are no religion, you must speak out against this. Please contact your representative and object to the distortion. If the government endorses a religion, that is one giant step away from freedom for all. We must remain tolerant of all belief systems, life styles and viewpoints. Anything else is un-American.
Do not rely on politicians to recite U.S. history. They distort and lie on this topic just like they do about most else.
