    It worked on a micro level. The macro level that our country has grown into would make it ineffective.

    This is true. Although, many states (as I said before) had state religions.

    Is the "macro level" you're speaking of about population?

    Also economically and in regards to defense. The Michigan militia didn't win the Cold War.

    But that wouldn't work today. The states are all too tied to each other now to actually allow the states to adopt a specific religion.

    Keep your religion out of other people's marriages.

    Yes, but it wasn't just slavery that the states had issues about. That's why they had several different plans presented and compromises made in order to get the states needed to ratify it.

    Why is it that those who scream the loudest about being "Christian" are those that generally live the least "Christ-like" lives?
