Why do so many Christians seem to require the state’s validation of their beliefs?
Is their faith so weak that without constant reminders that the majority of the country also believes in God and Jesus that they would fall away?
Do they think Jesus is sitting up in heaven with a lightning bolt saying, “By Dad, if those Americans don’t get around to plastering my name on every state owned building, I’m so going to smite them…”?
What is the deep seated inner need for this? I think some people need to right, so they can be assured that other people are wrong.
But I’m honestly curious at this point. So any Christians out there who do want Ten Commandments monuments on government land and prayer in schools and other displays by the State of theism in general and your faith in particular, please explain to me why you want that and why we can’t simply let the government be secular and each of us practice our religion as we believe God wants us to?
