Yay Christian Nationalism!

Freedom of religion was getting pretty darn old. But not as old as our brave new history as a Christian nation (The Frame Problem):

It is being argued on Daily Kos that Christian Conservatives are engaging in a deceitful effort of historical revisionism to give America a big nudge toward becoming an officially Christian nation. It is argued on Daily Kos that this effort is an attempt to exploit the fear of Democrat politicians to appear anti-Christian in order to make religious right historical revisionism (i.e., that the founding fathers intended for America to be an explicitly Christian nation, rather than a secular one) appear more respectable by having it enshrined in Congress. It’s an effort to make lies true.

Introduced by Congressman Randy Forbes December 18 in the US House Of Representatives, H. Res 888 claims to be about “”Affirming the rich spiritual and religious history of our Nation’s founding and subsequent history and expressing support for designation of the first week in May as `American Religious History Week’ for the appreciation of and education on America’s history of religious faith.”

Actually, the resolution is packed with lies – American history lies to be specific.

You see, there’s the truth (inspired by Satan), and there’s the Jesus Truth. So breaking a commandment to let people know about the Jesus Truth isn’t really lying, and I’m pretty sure the Bible says that’s ok anyway.

  1. Not sure I understand your last paragraph. My position is that this is a good resolution. I usually understand sarcasm, but maybe to make your point clearer (at least to me), what is your position on the resolution?

    What does “there’s the truth (inspired by Satan) mean?

    Thanks much!

  2. I’m being horribly facetious and poking fun at using lies to promote a bible that considers lying as sin. Poorly written on my part.

    My position on the resolution is it is an underhanded attempt to rewrite history, for the purpose of making this country something it is not: Christian.
