They may not have been practicing Christians or really believers nor did they set up the government to be Christian but they were out of that puritanical tradition and I'm sure they had to feign being a Christian in order to get the votes of the ultra religious. Even those people who are not religious like Bill Clinton always have to show up in a church or at least act like they have a Christian background in order to get anywhere in politics and I think that’s the way its always been. Can anyone tell me a president in the last 100 years who didn’t at least pretend to be Christian in public?
And John you know that I don't think this is a Christian country but for anyone to say that Christianity is under attack or that the cliché “white working man” is under attack is nonsense. I am a white working man in part but I see that I have more opportunity then anyone. I’m not going to cry about the fact that I can’t walk five steps outside my home and get a life long, well paying manufacturing job when we all know that our country no longer has that sort of economy. So what I do, rather then cry that the world is after me I have gone where the economy is moving …go to where the jobs are, get the skills to do those jobs or start your own business. I never said that white men are all part of some old boys network as the other poster put in my mouth but for a group of people who have more opportunity then anyone else why should we act like bitches and cry that the world is after us just because the old jobs have changed sector.
I’m not fraternizing with the enemy; I don’t see anyone as my enemy, just as people that I disagree with on this issue or that one.
