Fred Rich, on the Huffington Post reports an unusual result of a recent survey.
When asked whether they would favor or oppose establishing Christianity as the official state religion in their state, 34% of respondents were in favor (with 20% "strongly" in favor). You read that correctly: 34% in favor of establishing Christianity as the state religion, as in creating a theocracy. There's more: when asked whether they would favor an amendment to the U.S. Constitution making Christianity the official religion of the United States, 32% said yes.
They'd favor an amendment, huh? Well, let's consider this -- there's already an amendment -- one of the originals, part of the Bill of Rights. It prohibits the making of any law respecting an establishment of a religion.
It was adopted in 1791 as the FIRST of the original ten amendments.
If you're going to defend your right to guns with our second amendment, you have to abide by the first one as well. We can't pick and choose. Obviously the framers had time to think this one over and it must have weighed heavily on their minds if they made it number one.
