I don't get why these people insist that we are living in a christian society. We really aren't.
Our government is based more off the Roman style of representative government. Political satirists back then even likened George Washington to a Roman Emperor. I believe there is even a statue of him in a toga somewhere. Regardless, as I remember it, the Roman Catholic church didn't appear in Ancient Rome until after the lead in the water pipes was making people nuts.
Then there are the Ten Commandments. What Christians believe gives them a cornered market in the ethics trade. The basis of law in American society. What incredible bullshit!
First of all, only three of the ten commandments are actual laws. Those being:
- Thou shalt not steal
- Thou shalt not kill
- Thou shalt not commit adultery
The other two aren't even original Christian ideals. People have been placing value upon and disregarding other people's lives and property LONG before the christian god was dreamt up by slaves looking for a political voice in Egypt.
As I said before, I just don't get where these religious nutjobs get off saying the USA is a christian society.
