6 April 2015. The Bible is NOT the Law of the Land… THANK GOD!

00 this is the law of the land. 06.04.15

The House I Live In… Paul Robeson… it says it all… the Republicans hated him and what he stood for. They persecuted him and made it impossible for him to earn a decent living. Those who hated Paul Robeson and what he stood for LOVE the Indiana Law… fancy that…

Despite the loud bloviations of some on the right, the Founders did NOT intend to establish a Christian Republic. Rather, they wanted a SECULAR Republic, with no ties to an established religion. That is, the Constitution, NOT THE BIBLE is the “Law of the Land”. You may like that or you may not, but that’s what is. The United States of America was not, is not, and shall never be a “Christian Republic”… those who advocate such want to ram potty Radical American Sectarian (“Evangelical”) notions down everyone’s throat. THAT’S EVIL. Church and State are separate in the USA, and that’s the way it should be. As a member of a minority religion (there are only about a million practising Orthodox Christians tied to parishes in this country, all told), I tend to get worried whenever a Sectarian starts babbling about “morality”… often, that’s only a thinly veiled attempt to force Sectarian fancies on everyone.

The Indiana law was an abomination in legal terms… the state is not in the business of “defending religion”… that’s OUR TASK, as people, not as citizens. If we’re living our faith… whether it be Christian, Sectarian, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, Secularist, or whatever… there’d be no need for such laws. It’s a sad commentary not only upon us as a society, but as believers. Only unbelievers need such laws. Ponder that, if you will…
