America: Government and the Christian Right.

| | Comments (0)

Given the history and immense strides the religious right have made in politics since being invited into the Whitehouse in the Reagan Administration as advisors to policy, American government is at a turning point and her future will have much less in common with her past.

What candidate running for President or Senator can now afford to alienate the religious right? Virtually none! If they are running with an intent to win, they cannot alienate the religious right with their campaign platform (which the Democrats have just discovered). And if they seek reelection, they cannot afford to alienate the religious right in policy and law making.

Unless, and until, academic secular education in America is reelevated to its former status as the best in the world especially in history, humanities, and civics, the religious right have a permanent seat at the power brokering table of American politics, foreign and domestic policy making, and they will not be denied. The Christian right in America will no longer render unto Ceasar that which is Ceasar's unless Ceasar comes from their own ranks. Follow the money, honey, the Christian right has it, and the voters sufficient to keep it coming in.

It is a great victory for Christians, but, a sad day for America's future since the Constitution of the U.S. now stands in the Christian Right's way. Many don't yet see it, but there is a plethora of executive orders already underway and a number of Constitutional ammendments are coming in America's near future. They are, and will be, designed to tear down the wall between church and state in ways unimagineable just 20 years ago.

It is truly an ironic point in history, that America is engaged in a foreign policy designed to bring secular democracy and freedom to theocratic states in the Middle East, while at the same time, paving the way for its own theocracy to come. [THEOCRACY - A species of government which claims to be immediately directed by God.]

What does a rising Christian theocracy in the US portend in its foreign policy with Islamic theocracies elsewhere in the world? What does a Christian theocracy in the US with a mandate from many of its religious leaders to save heathen Muslims, Buddhists, and Hindus from themselves and their religions portend for the prospect of world peace?

These are questions Americans should be asking themselves before they elect an evangelical preacher to become the Commander in Chief of the largest and most lethal military force the world has ever seen.
