I feel the need to claim that on a regular basis lately. What with the woman in Kentucky and the endorsement of presidential candidates and the judges in other states declaring it is against their religion to honor same sex marriages, it does seem to feel as if we might be becoming a theocracy. It would be stupid on our part to not take this serious. These people would really like to make our country one that is governed by their version of religion and their interpertation of the bible. Interesting to note that in many ways they resemble the taliban mindset of other countries and even the ISIS cult that is causing such terror and horror in the mid east. Why?
Our countries government was started with the intention of keeping religion separate from government and there is no mention of the bible or bible laws anywhere in our constitution. That doesn’t stop the idiots that would really like to instill religious laws and government in our country. Their idea of religious freedom is the right to force others to bow down to their beliefs and not the freedom to choose your own religion.
Much like in the era of civil rights when they used obscure bible verses to justify segregation and the denial of interracial marriages. I well remember Wallace standing in the doorway of the school stating they would not be desegregated. The national guard was called out and he was forced to stand down. Right around that time the KKK adopted the confederate flag and used their hate filled power to cause the deaths of many people. Now they use an obscure bible verse to justify their objection to same gender marriage. Wrong then and wrong now. Now with the internet and social media its quite easy to communicate and in a way actually give these fools more power.
So how do we stop them?
