At some point I would like to see Liberty define religious liberty more specifically.
I am not saying who is right, I really want to know. There are many who say this was founded as a Christian country and others say no. Yet we see statues and religious statements made by our founders. I have read Lincoln and Washington’s prayers and it is certain they considered it a Christian country. I have heard religious meetings once took place in the capital. I realize all the leaders were not our stereotype of Christian or religious, but they certainly promoted it. It seems deceptive to claim otherwise.
Now there is a move to remove (Judeo-Christian) religion from public places and not refer to it in schools (unless against it). I think of the ten commandments being taken out of a government building a few years ago. There are organizations called “Freedom from Religion.” They have their right and so does every religion in the country. To have a public faith is not pitting one religion against another or politically funding or choosing one over another. Each religion is free to have their own schools on an equal basis with vouchers. I look for equity in a changing nation, not denying the voice of any or our founding fathers.
