I think lack of honor, ethics and integrity is a problem, too. If our laws are lacking, or dishonest people have found loopholes, then we need to pass new laws or revise the old ones, and punish those who break them. We are not seeing much punishment of thieves and cheaters these days.

I don't think we need to try to put those values into our legal code because some founding fathers were Christian, or the country was founded on Christian principles (imo, a coincidence), blah blah blah. Keep talking about it, and I am only convinced that the Christian Right is trying to tell others that if they're atheist or agnostic, they're immoral - which is patently untrue. Or that they're trying to thwart the establishment clause. Anybody remember that pesky little thing?

I notice a lot of those same Christian Righties trying to convince me that prayer isn't allowed in school; it is, as long as it isn't led by teachers or administration trying to shove their brand of religion down the kids' throats. Plenty of decent, moral, law-abiding atheists and agnostics around. They even have rights. Imagine that.

Start heading toward the slippery slope of even implying you're trying to establish a national religion or "national Christian principles" (or any other religious flavor), and I will be on the other side defending my right to be any religion or none at all. To the death, if necessary.

This is one of the issues that lost the last election, imo. Many, many people are turned off by the militancy of the Christian Right, Moral Majority, whatever you want to call it. In short, trying to sell me on any brand of religion with politics utterly turns me off, to the extent that it's hard for me to listen to the rest of the message. Stay out of my bedroom, stay out of my doctor's office, and stay out of my religious beliefs or lack thereof. Ain't nobody's business but mine.
