I have been having a discussion with a commenter on my NCCR blog. I had posted that discussion in portion under the title, “So who’s Full of Baloney?” As you can expect that discussion has continued in the comment section at the NCCR blog. We have both entered the realm of antagonism once in a while but for the most part the discussion has been civil. I have always assumed Bryan the commenter was a Leftist due to his way Left of Center defense. In his last comment he said he was neither a Leftist nor a Right Winger but read info and made his own decisions. I will probably get into trouble by trying to find a place on the political spectrum for a guy that puts up a stiff defense for Left Wing principle yet considers himself neither Left nor Right on that spectrum. So I won’t.
Anyway, Bryan posted a rather lengthy comment to a comment I made knocking a previous Bryan comment. Bryan’s most recent comment is an impressive evenhanded response to my comment. I am going to do you – the reader – a small disservice by not posting Bryan’s last comment. Bryan’s comment was posted on August 5th so I am a bit behind the curve in actually responding. As you read my most recent response you may feel the need to go to Bryan’s comment to read exactly what I am responding to. HERE is the link to Bryan’s most recent comment as of this post if you choose to read.
Thus begins my response:
Bryan I appreciate the civility of this last comment. The only thing I can get behind 100% is the concept of the Free Choice and the 1st Amendment. As you can guess there are some nuances that I can never agree with.
Leftists, Atheists and perhaps centrists that interpret the 1st Amendment as the Freedom from religion in the sense of Christian Morality is flawed. And you can realize why from our exchanges. On the other hand I absolutely support one practicing any faith that does not run contrary to the American-style of the rule of law and I absolutely support a non-religious life if so chosen. What I cannot support is for Leftists, Atheists, Centrists or non-Christian faiths forcing the practice of Christianity out of the public forum. That was never the Original Intent of the Constitution. Rather the Original Intent was to make the rule of Law to not force anyone practice a particular form of Christianity and I’ll accept by extension to not force anyone to practice any form of religion or atheism. However, unconstitutional Separation of Church and State enthusiasts force Christians NOT to practice their faith quite forcefully under the false that practicing faith forces the non-faithful to practice a religion or ideology that is against another’s faith or lack thereof.
The Original Intent of the First Amendment was to offer anyone to practice their faith even in a public forum without restrictions than with restrictive prohibitions. The government is not endorsing any religion because the public forum allows one to freely practice like-minded religious principles. After all there is a certain universality on the foundations of Christian between all the Denominations of Protestants (incidentally the Original thinking of the Founding Fathers), Roman Catholics and Eastern Rite Christianity. Hence a prayer by a football team or a city council will probably have more broad agreement than hostile disagreement. If an atheist chooses not to pray – so be it. If a non-Christian in attendance wishes to pray according their own faith – so be it. Don’t force a culture in which Christians cannot pray just because taxpayer money might be paying for a Public School Football team or Field or pays for the meeting room of a City Council et al. That is breaking religious freedom more than the fallacy of allowing prayer establishes a national Church. The 1st Amendment prohibits the government from establishing a national Church (Original Intent) and by extension any national religion.
The case for or against abortion is argued as a woman’s free choice with their own body or against the personal life of the unborn baby in a woman’s womb. For a Biblical Christian calling an unborn baby a body extension with philosophically sanitized word of “fetus” is just smoke and mirrors to people of faith.
The increasing (and unfortunate) success of homosexual activists changing the minds of a huge chunk of American voters does not make the homosexual lifestyle any more acceptable to Biblical Christians. Yet homosexual activists have successfully used the legal system to force Biblical Christians to make wedding cakes for same-sex weddings, restricted Biblical Christian clubs or associations in Public Schools or Public Colleges from forming while allowing homosexual clubs and associations to prosper. This is a restriction of 1st Amendment religious freedom to accommodate a fairly recent acceptance of homosexuality. Indeed a Biblical Christian is now vilified as a bigot for demanding their religious freedom on a campus while a homosexual club or association gleefully mocks the Biblical Christians because they are restricted and the homosexuals freely practice a lifestyle Biblical Christians find abhorrent.
The one complaint you have that indicts me is my attitude toward Islam. I have a huge problem with Islam as a religion and Muslims that support Salafist (i.e. purest) Islam or even Muslims that might consider themselves moderate yet support Islamic terrorist like Hamas that are dedicated to killing Jews, Christians and Americans. I actually sway back and forth between Dajjal’s solution for Muslims who hate and the Christian principles of forgiveness and mercy. It depends on the Muslim atrocity, the Muslim self-justification or the Muslim lie of the day versus how much time I have spent in meditation in the Holy Scriptures. This inner struggle between ending Muslim hate and the patience of Jesus is constant. Perhaps you can be the conscience of the day once in a while that isn’t quite antagonistic.
Bryan I am certain I probably did not respond to all your concerns but I have run out of gas. I think you get the idea of my frustration with Leftist, Atheist and Centrist complainers of the practice of Free Market principles and Biblical Christianity. I am also certain your principles are no more tolerant of my Biblical Christian Conservative ideology than I would be with yours.

I agree with about 95% of the speculative thoughts of one of my favorite bloggers Danny Jeffrey. For a long time I have bucked the Conservative trend that America should stay out of Syria. I had believed that Chemical Weapons was indeed a threat to our National Security. Syria has been and still is a rogue nation that is a client of Iran and a conduit to Shi’ite Islamic terrorists controlling Lebanon – i.e. Hezbollah.
I believed an attack to remove Assad, using the Chemical Weapon pretense, as a good goal to further encircle and mess up Iran’s Shi’ite alliances that desire to control the Middle East Gulf nations.
Upon further consideration my distrust of Obama has led me to join my fellow Conservatives in demanding we stay out of Syria. If peace-at-all-costs Obama wants to use military force in Syria then there is something up. This is where Danny Jeffrey’s line of thinking has finally pushed me into the STAY-OUT-OF-SYRIA camp.
Apart from the reasons that Danny Jeffrey has presented over the years I have to say Islam definitely is the product of its founding prophet Mohammed. Islam is a cult of violence that is spread viciously until whole non-Muslim cultures are forced to submit to Islam. Sharia Law makes Islamic power simply too difficult for a non-Muslim culture to perpetuate where Muslims possess the power to rule. And that rule is vicious with one goal in mind; i.e. to transform the minds and souls of a non-Muslim culture into an Islamic culture. The alternative for not transforming is a perpetual life of second class misery. Only the most dedicated non-Muslims retain their religious heritage under such circumstances. AND even in retaining a religious heritage that moved the one-time majority to the minority culture, those people eventually conform to the public rules of Islam such as no public worship, no proselytizing of their faith, no criticizing of Islamic culture compared to non-Muslim beliefs as well as submitting to every subservient status that ensures Islamic Supremacism.
Yeah, Danny does not touch too much on Islam as a culture of a bunch of little antichrist Islamic Supremacist people ready to execute a bloodbath for any contrivance against Islam. Danny focuses on the political aspects of a Soros-Obama agenda to transform the world into the delusion of a Marxist-Socialist paradise in which all religion and morality is submitted to a State defined Secular Humanist morality. Danny has convinced me. The Soros-Obama gang use Islamic doctrine to destroy Christian Morality that has been the foundation that has made Western Culture and especially America exceptional.
You have to notice that the more and more that Christianity has been tossed into irrelevance in Europe the more Socialistic principles, Secular Humanism and State-defined Liberty has transformed the moral landscape of the once mighty Christian Europe. Secularist concepts of morality battles Christianity from the Left while protecting Islamic Radicalism which picks up the pieces of lost Christian morality in Europe. The problem about Islamic morality is its demand of medieval enforcement to conform or else face the prescribed extremely harsh punishment.
In the Garden of Eden God gave Adam and Eve were given a choice of faithfulness or to eat the forbidden fruit of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. Adam and Eve believed the devil’s temptation that eating the forbidden fruit would make them just as God Almighty knowing both Good and Evil. Typically of deceived humanity, Adam and Eve only listened to that which was perceived as self-aggrandized power and having deaf ears to the reality the fruit would also bring the knowledge of Evil. The Soros-Obama agenda is working to create the same circumstances in the USA attempting relegate the Light of Christianity into submerged darkness which is man-created – actually in a spiritual sense the Satanic agenda. Ever since God Almighty gave Lucifer the boot from Heaven along with 1/3 of Lucifer’s deceived Angels the slew-foot agenda was to dethrone the Creator.
George Soros and Barack Obama are the unwitting (or more nefariously perhaps witting) dupes of Lucifer-turned-Satan ultimate agenda. Satan is self-deceived that there can be a victory over God. Soros and Obama are a part of that delusive agenda of darkness wittingly or unwittingly.
Yeah I know the spiritual side of a future chaos is often not mentioned when Conspiracy dudes talk of economic collapse and a New World Order. Nevertheless, that is also a part of my world view.
Check out this quote from a Danny Jeffrey post entitled, “Spreading Terror Near and Far”:
Some tell us that our country is on the verge of collapse. I disagree. It has already collapsed, caved in upon itself, and is no more than fallen rubble. A nation’s collapse need not wait for economic ruin, military invasion, or civil war to begin. A great nation is finished when its people forsake their morality as ours have already done. When they follow blindly, choose to consume while not producing, and feed on hatred, then they as a people, are no more.
Danny Jeffrey is a modern Jeremiah warning that bad times are coming soon and the warning is now. I sure wish Danny – the 21st Jeremiah – would also show there is a redemption for lost people who blindly chose to follow the delusion. When chaos overtakes illusion, reality often turns the miserable to seek God. Jeremiah shared God’s Word that repentance would restore the Jewish nation. The paradigm is just as valid for Christians of faith.
Turning from God brings disaster. Check out God’s Mercy when people turn back to God:
31 “Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah— 32 not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt, My covenant which they broke, though I was a husband to them,[a] says the Lord. 33 But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will put My law in their minds, and write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. 34 No more shall every man teach his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for they all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them, says the Lord. For I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more.”
31 ‘For this city has been to Me a provocation of My anger and My fury from the day that they built it, even to this day; so I will remove it from before My face 32 because of all the evil of the children of Israel and the children of Judah, which they have done to provoke Me to anger—they, their kings, their princes, their priests, their prophets, the men of Judah, and the inhabitants of Jerusalem. 33 And they have turned to Me the back, and not the face; though I taught them, rising up early and teaching them, yet they have not listened to receive instruction. 34 But they set their abominations in the house which is called by My name, to defile it. 35 And they built the high places of Baal which are in the Valley of the Son of Hinnom, to cause their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire to Molech, which I did not command them, nor did it come into My mind that they should do this abomination, to cause Judah to sin.’
36 “Now therefore, thus says the Lord, the God of Israel, concerning this city of which you say, ‘It shall be delivered into the hand of the king of Babylon by the sword, by the famine, and by the pestilence’: 37 Behold, I will gather them out of all countries where I have driven them in My anger, in My fury, and in great wrath; I will bring them back to this place, and I will cause them to dwell safely. 38 They shall be My people, and I will be their God; 39 then I will give them one heart and one way, that they may fear Me forever, for the good of them and their children after them. 40 And I will make an everlasting covenant with them, that I will not turn away from doing them good; but I will put My fear in their hearts so that they will not depart from Me. 41 Yes, I will rejoice over them to do them good, and I will assuredly plant them in this land, with all My heart and with all My soul.’
14 ‘Behold, the days are coming,’ says the Lord, ‘that I will perform that good thing which I have promised to the house of Israel and to the house of Judah:
15 ‘In those days and at that time
I will cause to grow up to David
A Branch of righteousness;
He shall execute judgment and righteousness in the earth.
16 In those days Judah will be saved,
And Jerusalem will dwell safely.
And this is the name by which she will be called:
Really you should read the whole chapters of Jeremiah 31-33. You get a picture of a culture descending into immorality and then how misery returns people back to God who then dispenses Mercy rather than more Justice with a Promise of a better covenant. Can you say Jesus Christ the Son of God, Redeemer and Savior?
Now if Danny Jeffrey’s Jeremiah predictions rings true for Americans experiencing misery via the loss of the world’s greatest Constitution providing for a nation of laws rather than for a nation ruled by legal fiat. Then check this out:
21 1 Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. 2 Then I, John,[a] saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3 And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. 4 And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”
5 Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” And He said to me,[b] “Write, for these words are true and faithful.”
6 And He said to me, “It is done![c] I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. 7 He who overcomes shall inherit all things,[d] and I will be his God and he shall be My son. 8 But the cowardly, unbelieving,[e] abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”
9 Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls filled with the seven last plagues came to me[f] and talked with me, saying, “Come, I will show you the bride, the Lamb’s wife.”[g] 10 And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me the great city, the holy[h] Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, 11 having the glory of God. Her light was like a most precious stone, like a jasper stone, clear as crystal.
22 But I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple. 23 The city had no need of the sun or of the moon to shine in it,[a] for the glory[b] of God illuminated it. The Lamb is its light. 24 And the nations of those who are saved[c] shall walk in its light, and the kings of the earth bring their glory and honor into it.[d] 25 Its gates shall not be shut at all by day (there shall be no night there). 26 And they shall bring the glory and the honor of the nations into it.[e]
22 1 And he showed me a pure[a] river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding from the throne of God and of the Lamb. 2 In the middle of its street, and on either side of the river, was the tree of life, which bore twelve fruits, each tree yielding its fruit every month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. 3 And there shall be no more curse, but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and His servants shall serve Him. 4 They shall see His face, and His name shall be on their foreheads. 5 There shall be no night there: They need no lamp nor light of the sun, for the Lord God gives them light. And they shall reign forever and ever. (Revelation 21: 1-11; 22-26; 22: 1-5 NKJV)
You need to know Jesus wins. God’s Will is no longer tedious to follow because the full Redemption of spirit, soul and body imprints God in our very nature. Soros loses. Obama loses. Islam loses. Now if you have not read “Spreading Terror Near and Far” yet, then you should! In the end God wins; however the Danny Jeffrey Jeremiad brings a little clarity that too many people have their head in the sand ignoring the seasons and the times.

Apostates and Infidels Facebook (closed group) friend Kab Ashraf commented on a blog post I shared entitled “What to do when the Muslim Minority Assaults Non-Muslim Majority”. The comment was in the fashion of showing a video posted on the Storm’n Norman blog. And the video Storm’n Norman posted was created by ChurchMilitantTV which is representative Catholics that stand for Christian Morality rather than Liberal and/or Secular Humanist morality. The criticism is of Liberal Bishops that support a Moral Relativist position and the Left Wing Democratic Party.
Here is Kab’s comment from Facebook minus the Youtube link:
The Right To Bear Arms PLEASE SEE: Constitution Defined or Defied? …Especially this part: Original Text – Amendment II (1791) A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed. US Senate Explanation – Whe… [Editor: I’m not sure if Facebook cut Kab off or if that was the way comment actually ended.]
yer gonna love that video, after you recover from the initial shock.
The video starts and ends with some ChurchMilitantTV info. The part you need to pay attention to is a program called The Vortex hosted by Michael Voris.

Why are so many bishops blind to Obama’s evil?
I’m not a Roman Catholic but this is the attitude toward all Christians regardless of Protestant, Catholic, Eastern Orthodox or whatever should share on God Almighty’s morality for His Believers.

I believe there was a time that American voters had a concern about stealth Marxism/Communism transforming America into a Collective in which Liberty and Civil Rights were defined by the State rather than Constitutional Rule of Law. After Election 2012 I now believe Americans could care less about American Freedoms. People are simply willing to have their lives and culture defined by the State.
Feel me, hear me, see me and touch me and tell me what to believe for my own good. The toehold to despotism is the illusion of government dependent beneficence. If the government is the hand that feeds you and the creator of a temporal synthetic existence causing security euphoria, then actual Liberty won and instituted by law by the people and for the people will be lost to an oligarchic bureaucracy that in turn has government policy distributed by a ruling elite.
The polarization in America is between hardcore Leftists that have convinced (apparently most) Americans that a Secular Humanist, Multicultural Diverse and Judeo-Christian destroying society is the path to utopia AND those Americans that have an awareness of fiscal responsibility, Social Conservatism based on Judeo-Christianity as well as the Original Intent of the Founding Fathers revolutionizing the Rule of Law of a Representative Republic.
We Americans on the Right side of the polarized scale must step up our level to communicate to Americans the risks to American Liberty by unwittingly investing in the Socialist-Marxist-Communist journey to the illusion of a man-made utopia. Friends, there is no such thing as a utopia that realizes the greater good for the betterment of humankind when the architect is man.
Yes, I am a Christian. I am a Christian that believes a great debt is owed to Jews. Even though the Jews do not share the Christian sentiment of Salvation in Christ Jesus, the New Testament clearly proclaims that Salvation is of the Jews. Our Savior was born a Jew, raised a Jew and lived as a Jew in His earthly walk that led to the Crucifixion, Death and bodily Resurrection that Christians believe brings Deliverance from bondage of a Satan influenced age and a transference to the Kingdom of God.
The only utopia on planet Earth will be after the Creator forms the New Earth-New Jerusalem and the New Heaven in which the nations that have come to their senses believe in the Kingship of Jesus Christ. The Rule of Law will not be devised by humanity; rather humanity will have the Will of God imprinted in their new creation spirit knowing instantly the good rejecting any evil that separates from God Almighty.
Yes that is correct. I injected faith and politics as the God-Kind of life that government will be like without humanity calling the shots. The Founding Fathers realized that government should not have any business in religion yet that religion (specifically the Christian religion) must be the conscience of government. Robbing America of a Christian conscience has slowly changed our society in which greed, violence and distrust are embedded in our culture.
We Americans of the Right must find a way to reinstill the vision of the Founding Fathers complete with the conscience that keeps government in line and by extension our culture in a better moral state.
You may wonder what set off this line of thought. Well it was an article by Trevor Loudon that exposes the tentacles of the Left forming policy of the Democratic Party as administered by the Obama regime on the USA.

I am on the WND email list. And really, I enjoy being on the WND mailing list. One of the draw backs though are I am bombarded with ads from the WND store. I actually read those ads with interest because I am tempted to buy stuff. Fear of the budget minded wife keeps me inline and away from buying on a weekly basis.
In saying all that WND sent an interesting ad with a theme I am very interested in. The theme is the effect of Secular Humanist/Marxist thinking invading America’s Public School system to mold young minds away from traditional Christian Moral thought.
The email ad is informative even if you don’t buy anything and because of this I am posting the email almost in its entirety. Here is quick summary list of the sale offer and the topics inherent in the title:
§ ‘Marxism led Madalyn Murray O’Hair to atheism’
§ INDOCTRINATION: PUBLIC SCHOOLS AND THE DECLINE OF CHRISTIANITY IN AMERICA
§ My War: The Testimony of Bradlee Dean (DVD)
§ Fish Out of Water (Paperback)
It is hardly surprising that many young Christians find their faith tested upon entering a university. Secular institutions today are rife with professors who are not only unbelievers, but who actively mock religion, all under the guise of “academic freedom.”
§ INDOCTRINATE U: OUR EDUCATION, THEIR POLITICS
Below is the email promo (Read at SlantRight 2.0) with the theme of assault on Christian Values in the American Public School System.
If you are Biblical believing Christian and are supportive of Pro-Family groups in America then the Southern Poverty Law Center has put you in a category of a promoter of hate because you believe homosexuality is a sin. That implies Christians devoted to the Word of God are promoters of hate speech even though the message to homosexuals is to repent and believe in the Savior Jesus Christ the Son of God the Prince of Peace.

You know I am a huge fan of protecting America’s right to Free Speech even to the point of allowing ideology that I believe (and probably most Americans) is an ideology of corruption. Saying that here is a question that the Supreme Court has interpreted to affirm the answer: Is pornography a Free Speech issue or an affront to human decency issue that should be criminalized?
The Supreme Court has ruled pornography in the Free Speech realm is free expression covered under First Amendment Free Speech (Notably: Jacobellis v. Ohio & Stanley v. Georgia). Any nominal through devout Christian should have been angered for opening this can of worms that as late as the early 20th century would have the porn perpetrators and porn participants thrown in the slammer. I am guessing even a significant amount of moral relativists would have and should have not been pleased with the Supreme Court decision to transform many centuries worth of Western/Christian culture into legalized protected exploitation of women for the sake of the prurient interest of males (and in the present of females as well).
I think I might have an understanding to the reason SCOTUS legalized pornography to become legal precedent according to the First Amendment. If SCOTUS had ruled against pornography in the fast pace changing 20th century a worse can of worms may have opened. The horns of a dilemma may have been a choice of the lesser of two evils in which a ruling indeed was necessary for the times.
If SCOTUS ruled in favor of many centuries of Western/Christian culture in which pornography did not suit the common good then another question would arise in which the worms of the can might lead to forms of despotism and interpreting Culture rather than the Constitution. That question is: Who decides the Western or Christian measuring tool of what the common good is?
I am sure some may disagree that the proverbial can of worms of the common good is the lesser of two evils. And yet consider this: the SCOTUS ruling of applying Free Speech to pornography also strengthened the equality of Free Speech for the Left/Right political spectrum. The fringes of that scale such as Communist bloody transformative revolution on the Left to extremist Capitalism in which the consumer is the victim of caveat emptor or worse the victim of bloody despotism of Fascist Corporatism in which an oligarchy or an individual leader of the State utilizes corporations to finance the whims of the Right. This strengthening of Free Speech allows Leftist idiocy (yep I’m on the Right) to be framed in public as much as the good sense of the Right. More importantly a Christian such as I also do have the freedom to frame their thoughts in public without the worry of Leftist/Secular Humanist legal or illegal persecution.
As a side bar: The one unfortunate result of SCOTUS ruling that pornography is a Free Speech right is the degradation of America’s culture harming the common good by further allowing deficient social mores snagging darkly into acceptance. Thus the porn right has led Psychiatrists and Doctors to withdraw homosexuality as a deviancy. Ever since the porn has the right SCOTUS ruling, more fuel has been given to the Left to minimize America’s Christian influence in or society. More and more the aegis of Free Speech coupled with the SCOTUS misinterpretation the First Amendment phrase not allowing the U.S. Government to Establish a State Church (meaning the unconstitutional phrase: Separation of Church and State) has given America’s Left a weapon to attack Christianity. Note I am not saying religion. I am saying Christianity.
America’s Left will support the ungodly and oft times unconstitutional theopolitical ideology of a religion to practice their faith even if the goal of that religion is to eradicate the very Constitution that allows Religious Freedom. That religion which the Left hooks up with to undermine Christian morality is the supremacist concepts of Islam. End of Side bar.
A classic example of weakening America’s perception of Christian influence in our culture is the recent story of middle aged female trucker (If Yahoo archives this story, go to SlantRight.com to read it) going into an art display in Colorado and take a crowbar to a 12-panel lithograph which included but was not limited to the portrayal of a dress wearing Jesus Christ having an orgasm from a male performing oral sex. The artist was Mexican born Stanford Professor Enrique Chagoya. The vandal was Kathleen Folden.
The writer of the story did his part to minimize Christianity. In parentheses following the description of Folden’s defending Christianity are these words:
Somehow the prophet-and-pigs panel seems to have gone overlooked, but that’s Colorado for you.
The article is a valiant effort of a MSM writer toward neutral journalism; nonetheless the writer’s thoughts on why the offense to Islam was not bashed in the same act of vandalism is the underlying bombarding of America’s culture with the subliminal persuasion that Christianity is the archaic practice of those who own guns and Bibles.
