Conservatives are a special treat no matter what the subject might be. But when it comes to religion, they are even more so.
You have to really appreciate those conservative Christian “patriot” people, their love for America and their hate for their fellow Americans (not really).
Christian conservatives talk about “faith.” These political people are “Christians,” so they believe in things that are unseen. You know, like the mention of God, the bible or Christianity in our nation’s Constitution.
How many people have you run into who have waved a finger at you while proclaiming the fabulously unsubstantiated line that “America was founded on Christianity”?
I do not have enough fingers and toes nor hairs on my head to count the number of times I have heard this abjectly ignorant claim. And you SURE can tell the ones who say this believe it to be so, can’t you?
If you debate these nut jobs on the issue and demand proof, you can be condemned by them to Hell. They can do that, you see, because they believe they live in ‘A Christian Nation’
One thing I believe to be true is that most Americans who have a political philosophy, be it Republican or Democratic, have a passion for their country and they believe their political philosophy to be the correct one.

We can adopt a philosophy which has endured the ages and has been tried numerous times from the cave man era to the feudal system to the gun-slinging latte’ drinkers at Starbucks. Yes!
