The founders of the United States democracy, the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights, made one thing perfectly clear, they established a government that was founded on the premise of freedom of religion and separation of church and state. Freedom of religion means more than freedom to be a Christian. However, contemporary Christians have found a way to control a fool, who will do or say anything to stay in power, and they have taken advantage of it. By the process of cheating they think they have found a way to force Christian principles on a population of citizens through the means of legislation.

The band on Muslins entering the USA is no more than an attempt to keep Christianity from competing with one of the major religions of the world. The question should be asked, of what are Christians afraid? Is Christianity not strong enough to stand up against major religions? As a result, Christians are using legislation as a useful tool in an attempt to force Christian principles into law. Future generations will recognize that force is not the solution and sooner or later they will rebel. This policy is undemocratic and is wrong and will never stand the test of time.  

Then there is this issue concerning Roe vs. Wade. The fact that a woman should have the right to make decisions concerning her body is a human rights issue.  It is not a matter if a man believes that abortion is right or wrong, but it is a matter when a man has the power to dictate to a woman what she can do with her body. The head of the executive branch of government is dead-set and determined to select Supreme Court Justices who will overturn Roe vs. Wade. He has already selected one justice that has cast a conservative vote on all issues and has made it perfectly clear that he will vote in favor of what conservatives call the pro-life issue. Republicans cheated by denying President Obama the right to nominate a Supreme Court Justice and so-called Christians applauded the action. This is another example of Christians sinking to the levels of degradation to use any method possible to coerce their morals on the citizens of the USA. 

In order to maintain the evangelical support Donald Trump will only appoint Supreme Court Justices who will overturn the Marriage Equality Act.  This act hurts no one and allows individuals the right to marry the person they love. It also provides consenting adults the right to choose. The right to choose is a human rights issue, and no government or religion should have the power to deny human rights to anyone. But Christians cannot let well enough alone, and they will go to any measure to force their beliefs on everyone. They think by the process of legislation they can impose their morals on society. LGBT individuals are the ones that Christians hate the most because they believe LGBT persons are enjoying themselves. Christians cannot allow anyone to be happy because they believe that there is one commandment that stands above all others and that is “Thou shall not be happy.”

American democracy is deteriorating at a rapid rate. Donald Trump is being investigated by the special prosecutor Robert Mueller for possible collusion with the Russian government during the campaign. This could lead to an indictment and if so the final decision will be made by the Justices of the Supreme Court.   It should be against the law for a sitting president, who is under a possible indictment to be able to select Supreme Court Justices who will serve as members of the jury should he be indicted.

It is true that conservatives can now run around and pat themselves on the back and say they have socked it to the liberals, but time will tell.   Winning a battle is a long way from winning the war, and this war will be won by future generations.  It is also true that most Republicans will not read this, and those who do will simply run inside their fake houses of Christianity and consult with their closeted, gay ministers to insist that he pray my gay away. If there is life after death, and if the Christian doctrine is true, one day I will stand before the judgment throne of God and give an account of my deeds on earth. May I assure you that I have no fear of that day.  But something tells me that on that day I may hear voices in the background from so-called Christians, who have been complicit in supporting an evil regime, crying for the rocks and mountains to fall on them to hide them from the face of Almighty God.
