Re: “Satanic Temple: Make Rapert pay for Ten Commandments monument

You guys don't understand what separation of church and state means. It doesn't mean to eradicate any remnant of God from public property and society. We are a Christian nation. The very premise of church and state was thought up by a Christian philosopher. Satanic Temple sits atop a mountain of freedom built by Christianity and foolishly tries to destroy the very foundation of the mountain that gives them freedom.

To sum it up, the search for salvation is the individual and voluntary responsibility of each man. To force a man to worship in a certain way he thinks is in error or profess something he doesn't believe by force isn't going to achieve true salvation for him/her. Considering the government's only tool to convince people is cumpulsion, it is of no beneficial use to true and saving religion.

On the flip side, the purpose of religion is to achieve salvation through logic and reasoning
via a person's voluntary walk of faith. Separation of church and state keeps one specific religious organization from obtaining too much power in government, so one specific church can't dictate through government compulsion how everybody has to worship. It's to prevent the government from being a stumbling block to salvation. If this was the way our country was ran, we would owe salvation to the country we lived in instead of God. Also, considering all the government leaders worship differently, that would mean only one country would achieve salvation, and the remaining wouldn't.

We are a nation started by Christians, founded overwhelmingly by Christians and men with Judea/Christian values. They all understood the importance of anchoring our society in Christianity to keep people virtuous and able to govern themselves. They understood that as we as a society fall into moral depravity, that they would lose the ability to govern ourselves, and it would necessitate growth of government which would endanger our freedom. A good example of this happening in present day, is we take any remnant of God out of schools, people start shooting them up, and secularist start infringing on our 2nd amendment freedoms. Maybe it would be a good idea if we had a rock in front of the school saying "Thou shall not kill".
