Another reason I'm not a Republican

Texas Republicans Urged to Drop 'Christian Nation'
'The Republican Party of Texas affirms that the United States of America is a Christian nation, and the public acknowledgment of God is undeniable in our history,' reads the plank in the party's 2004 platform, which was recently adopted.

"Public acknowledgment of God" is fine, go ahead and acknowledge anything you like, anywhere you like. Go sit on top of a flagpole with a megaphone and acknowledge as loudly as you can. But:

  • Don't use public (i.e. MY) money to do it
  • Don't write this acknowledgement into any laws, procedures, or official statements by any organ of the state
As Mr. Jefferson said, "the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion"
