And I agree with you on all of that except for your last sentence.<quoted text>
Actually it was understood that nation without spiritual guidance of the Creator that gives us our natural right our God given rights would never last as a republic. That we would never live as we should live, free and independent. That's why it is dead.
Just because I don't follow the herd mentality of some Christians doesn't mean I'm trying to remove any spiritual guidance from our nation. Part of my freedom in this Republic is to worship my Creator as I see fit. As long as that causes no physical or material or legal harm to someone else.
