"Our nation’s laws and very constitution as well as common law are based upon a Judeo Christian value set."
More wishful thinking where Scott Hopkins thinks Christianity INVENTED civility.
Scott might find this excerpt from the Treaty of Tripoli; written by President and Founding Father John Adams interesting:
Art. 11. “As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion”
This was read in Congress, appeared in the newspapers; and was received with no objection by either congressmen or the public.
It seems that all the GOD IN GOVERNMENT RUBBISH didn't get started until the 1950's; and gathered full steam under President Reagan; as he and those evangelist nuts who hijacked the Republican Party reacted to increasing women's rights.
Granted; there has always been plenty of "fire and brimstone" garbage in America culture; but at least up until the 1950's; we had enough sense to keep Christian Mythology out of the halls of Congress.
