Apparently Christians don't have enough faith in God and their own ability to teach their own children and think that the country needs to enforce God's law.
The oft repeated falsehood that liberals want to restrict worship is ridiculous. They only want the state to have no part in it. Children can pray in school, but the teachers can't lead it or provide for it. When the school violates that right, the ACLU will come to their defense, and have repeatedly.
But why should that matter? Jesus told us to go in our rooms, shut the door and pray to our Father in private. He told us to give to Caesar what is Caesar's, and to Him what is His. Instead we want to put God on the coinage and mix the messages together.
Why is it a problem in this country? Because freedom is bold and daring and risky, but provides the protection for both the sinner and the saint. Christians need to have less faith in the state, and more faith in their God.
