Look, since Reagan lets the Kracker (Fundamentalist) Jerry Falwell out of the closet, Christian Conservatives have been getting worse and worse every year. Look back a Dan Quayle, he looks like a puppy compared to crackers like Jeffers and Dobson and Barton and you have Byran Fisher at the end of that sorry spectrum. I like Duck Dynasty, but actually citing Jesus just encourage the kind of Kracker extremism that lets the Ku Klux Klan come re enter politics. You people just can’t accept that the Ku Klux Klan is a Dominion ist Fundamentalist Evangelical/ Charismatic extremist group and that you share the same basic ideology as they do, either that or you are the Ku Klux Klan?
Look, I’ve been watching the “Born Again” Movement for years, it’s just 21st century Tent Show revivalism, it has it’s place, if you like that kind of stuff. When I first went to an AA meeting some “Jesus freak” was pushing Church, it was a year later before I found out AA wasn’t a religious cult. (some may beg to differ, but an ash tray and a coffee cup make fine higher powers) Out of control Jesus freaks make me not go to meetings so I don’t read em the riot act. You need the largest group of addicts possible and you don’t get that saying Jesus nine times in every sentence you could have done that for 2000 years before AA, it does offend non “Fundamentalists”, Atheists Jews Buddhists Hindus and yes Muslims so cool it with the Kracker shit, if your preacher ain’t teaching tact get a different preacher!!
Kozmic Kornporn Krackers!!!

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
One of the many attacks on our country from the Religious Right is the claim that our country is a Christian Nation…not just that the majority of people are Christians, but that the country itself was founded by Christians, for Christians. However, a little research into American history will show that this statement is a lie. Those people who spread this lie are known as Christian Revisionists. They are attempting to rewrite history, in much the same way as holocaust deniers are. The men responsible for building the foundation of the United States were men of The Enlightenment, not men of Christianity. They were Deists who did not believe the bible was true. They were Freethinkers who relied on their reason, not their faith.
The separation of church and state is an issue that those in Washington debate just like co-workers do around the water-cooler or families around the dinner table. How much religion, if any, should be involved in government? When the 2nd “red scare” happened in the late 1940s until the late 1950s, Americans were scared that communism would overtake the country. The greatest example of this was Republican Senator, Joseph McCarthy of Wisconsin, who drove home the paranoia that not only would communism take over the United States, but that many Americans were communist themselves. Of course this all proved to be false and forever known as “McCarthyism.” One of the ways the government wanted to show that they were somehow above communism was their love for god. “In god we trust” was added to all paper currency in 1957 as well as adding “Under God” to the Pledge of Allegiance in 1954.
Today, many conservative politicians and Christians around the country claim that the United States was founded as a “Christian Nation.” These claims, however, are not based on factual information. While many of the Founding Fathers were Christians, others were not. Some believed in God, but held no religious preference and others had no belief in anything supernatural. Here are twenty quotes from the Founding Fathers and other great Americans that show that the United States was not founded as a “Christian Nation.”
Who were the Founding Fathers? American historian Richard B. Morris, in his 1973 book Seven Who Shaped Our Destiny: The Founding Fathers as Revolutionaries,identified the following seven figures as the “key” Founding Fathers:
Of these, only John Jay can be considered an orthodox Christian. As Congress’s Secretary for Foreign Affairs, he argued (unsuccessfully) for a prohibition forbidding Catholics from holding office. On October 12, 1816, Jay wrote, “Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers, and it is the duty, as well as the privilege and interest, of our Christian nation to select and prefer Christians for their rulers.” It is John Jay that the modern Christians have in mind when they talk about the Founding Fathers. Luckily for the rest of us, and all freedom-loving Americans, he was not in the majority.
Sometimes Christians offer up the Pilgrims as an example of our nation’s Christian founding. That is sheer ignorance on their part. The Pilgrims weren’t the ones who crafted the Constitution that governs our nation! They weren’t the ones who rebelled against England. The Pilgrims fled from horrible religious persecution in England only to practice the SAME HORRIBLE RELIGIOUS PERSECUTION here, as you can read on this pious Christian site. The “religious freedom” so often spoken of in regards to the pilgrims was espoused by them only when they were the victims. It was not based on any principle of fairness– it was a belief born of weakness, to be fogotten in their moment of power. Christian Colonists branded non-christians on the forehead with red-hot irons, bore them through their tongues, confiscated their property and threw them in jail, hanged them and burned them at the stake– THAT is what happens when Christians have their way! But that website is wrong in claiming that non-Christians are “criminals under the CONSTITUTION”. It’s the Constitution that did away with Christian persecution. “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.” That means people can freely exersize whatever religious belief they wish, Christian or not. Thanks to the Constitution, Christians can no longer persecute and kill those who do not agree with them.
Evangelicals, want a society ruled by those who know what the word of God is. The technical name for that is theocracy
