    Fools are very dangerous. There's not a lot can be said in defense of ignorance.

    Why can't leftists read? Do you genuinely not understand the difference between religion and culture??

    This ignorance among the left is just too widespread to bode well for the future of the country, especially if their numbers continue to grow.

    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    In practice, but contrary to the first amendment, the USA had many elements of a theocracy until the 1960s. Until then, there were fewer people outside the mainstream religions, so they generally lacked the power to oppose practices such as mandatory school prayers, bans on atheists holding public office and widespread discrimination against Jews. By the 1960s there was a greater understanding of the dangers of theocracy in response to the horrors of Nazism and communist suppression of religion and more people who were not mainstream Christians. That provided critical mass for an end to many of those theocratic practices and the courts finally recognized the problem and addressed it.

    And there are plenty of people out there who would like to make our govt. into a theocracy. Anyone can search on "Dominion Theory" or "Dominionists" to find info on that
    Dominion Theology - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Dominion Theology or Dominionism is the idea that Christians should work toward either a nation governed by Christians or one governed by a conservative Christian understanding of biblical law. At least under this name, it exists primarily among non-mainstream Protestants in the United States. It is a form of theocracy and is related to theonomy, though it does not necessarily advocate Mosaic law as the basis of government. Prominent adherents of Dominion Theology are otherwise theologically diverse, including the Calvinist Christian Reconstructionism and the charismatic/Pentecostal Kingdom Now theology and New Apostolic Reformation.
    PublicEye.org

    PRA's definition since 2005:

    Dominionism: The theocratic idea that regardless of theological view or eschatological timetable, heterosexual Christian men are called by God to exercise dominion over secular society by taking control of political and cultural institutions. Competes in Christianity with the idea of Stewardship, which suggests custodial care rather than absolute power. Used here in the broader sense, some analysts use the word only to refer to forms and offshoots of Reconstructionism.

    By what measure is the truth or falsity their religion different to Christianity? Satanism even shares the same characters, they just root for the underdog.

    Fortunately over the past 40 years you have been proven wrong about their dangerousness.

    There are plenty of people on this very forum who are openly Dominionist.
