I believe the virtues of self-reliance and independent thinking are the two virtues most feared by those who fight against Christianity. Both prevent people from being controlled by those who think they know what is best for others, ALL OTHERS. I perceive the average anti-Christian not as evil but rather seekers of control. (Exceptions made for those who murder and behead others in their war against all religions except their own.) Whatever they don’t like they seek to control. Some think too much sugary drinks are bad therefor we must limit them. Some think fast food and school lunch programs must be controlled. Some are convinced smoking is bad for you (and it is) therefore they must attempt to ban it. Now some are terrified that, heaven forbid, others should be exposed to The Bible and Christian thinking. Oh wait, if you are anti-Christian than heaven can’t exist and therefore it can’t forbid anything. So what is it about Christianity and these virtues of self-reliance and independent thinking that is so frightening that all vestiges of religious thought must now be suppressed in our country?
