As has been writ before, Mister Blunt and Cranky does not like Theocracies. His ancestors fled two of them to get here, where (among other things), there would be no government sponsorship of religion. And a few years later, when the government’s founding documents were written, they expressly forbade any state sponsorship of any variety of sky pilotry. Whew. Finally, safe to worship (or not) in any manner we choose.

Today, a load of Christians (mostly from Johnny-come-lately denominations) are working to undermine the law of the land, as laid down in clear, unambiguous language by the Founders. Other term for these activities include “sedition”, “treason”, and “crooked”. The people who promote these activities are then, seditious, treasonous, lying, cheats. They are also stupid f***s who apparently  cannot read history books.

Other notable societies who thought they enjoyed  the endorsement of God (by whatever name): Crusaders, Ancient Egypt and Babylon, Kings Solomon and David, the Nazis and the Russian Empire, to name but a very few.

None of these nations/states/empires are recalled for their piety. Rather, they are remembered for the atrocities and crimes they committed, and the horrible, fiery, bloody manners in which they collapsed.

So as you go to church, remember your history. And please, don’t try to tell the rest of how to worship: there is nowhere left to run, and we will have to make a stand right here. And that would pretty well destroy the nation that promised us freedom of worship.

P.S. But then, the same people who propose to limit our religious freedoms also propose the unilateral abrogation of other aspects of the social contract, so it should not surprise us that they have no respect for law or existing agreements. More on that during the week.
