Richard Land-Why Are You Attending The Response? Separation of Church and State

2 August 2011 at 10:46:05 AM

I don't get it. Have you changed your mind about what Separation of Church and State is from 2007? 

When we start having conservatives talking about having the government promote religion, that is not the government’s job. And I am absolutely convinced that unless Baptists weigh in with their understanding of the church and the state, and the proper relation of the two, that America is not going to get this right.

We are either going to get an aggressively secular state or we are going to get a state, and I think this is less likely, that we will get a state that acknowledges the Christian faith, some version of the Christian faith, some sort of broad version of the Christian faith, at the expense of other faiths.

A majority of Americans (if they are aware of it), a majority of Americans (if they understand it), that’s what they believe. They do not want the government promoting religion. They do not want the government censoring religion and suppressing religion. They want the government to acknowledge and to protect their right to express their values and their beliefs, whatever those beliefs and values are, in the public square.

If I can get enough people to understand this model, we can win the debate with this model. We can’t win the debate with having the government sponsoring Bible reading and prayer and the Christian faith. We cannot win that debate in America. We can win the debate with the model that I’ve proposed.

Okay. But that's what Rick Perry, governor of Texas has done. He has used his official title as governor to promote The Response. He even went so far as to have his office as governor used in robocalls to people in the Houston area. You know that it isn't about the governor expressing his personal believes but his using his OFFICE as elected official to promote ONLY Christianity. What if he was to do this?

So are you FOR separation of church and state EXCEPT when it comes to Rick Perry? Is it just more important for you to compromise your principles IN CASE Rick Perry ever actually decides to declare as president and you want to be buds with the politicians? Otherwise, why hang out with all these people that Rick Perry has brought in that are weird cultists, like the guy who thinks that the statue of liberty is a demonic symbol.

I guess it's more important to be like the Pharisees  and be seen at the best places at the table, yes? Or no? Why are you attending?
