To The Daily Sun,
I see Alan Vervaeke is bringing up the old liberal theory that the founders were not Christians. Let me first say that all Christians are deists, but not all deists are Christians. But to Alan's point, which I believe is nonsense, given that all Europe was and had been a Christian world for about 1,000 years or so.
Now all our founders were derived from that culture and were religious to various degrees and that would be Christians. Otherwise, why all the references to God, or the supreme power, etc. in their writings?
Alan wants to split some fine hairs in order to make the argument that religion should have no voice, regard or consideration in our government. Well actually, however (what) one chooses to believe regarding the deity when the Constitution was written, the founders chose to ban the government from founding a national religion. They never banned religion from having a voice or participation in government, which is what Alan is trying to say is the case, I believe.
Sorry Alan, you're not going to shut down, ban or otherwise silence the voices of Christians because they disagree with your political views. Live with it.
