ann We probably think similar things but express them differently. A religious neutral government, that is, one that is founded on freedom of religion not the absence of religion is what's important.

Those non-Catholics were other Christian denominations. It is not enough to adhere to Judeo-Christian ethics else we become like the "whitened sepulchres" that Matthew wrote of. We are a nation that is founded in part on Judeo-Christian heritage but we are even more than that. We take a step beyond the beliefs of the rigid Pharisees of old.

Regarding God, since Karl Marx, the aim of the left, everywhere on Earth, has been a godless society. And the Democratic Party has evolved over the last half century from a liberal party into a leftist one -- so much so that it is now indistinguishable from any of the leftist parties in Western Europe.
