    This is not a Christian nation.

    May have been founded somewhat on Christian principles and special interests sure know how to use God as a political wedge but to suggest that Christmas is more about the birth of Christ then Amazon black friday, cyber monday, hooray for capitalism is a $#@!ing joke.

    You are an idiot if you believe Christmas is about Christ. It may be more about Christ for you but society as a whole, nope.

    Bow to the God of BUY BUY BUY!

    Carry on, little Eichmanns.

    Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.

    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    I think what he's saying is the economic liberalism rules under the liberal democratic state. Everything is a commodity: labor, land, money--for some time--and political office nowadays.

    Sort of...

    I posted a similar article how money is more important than family, faith, etc. earlier.

    Basically the golden calf of Christianity has been replaced with a real golden calf called materialism.

    One look at US foreign policy is enough to give lie to the notion of the US being a Christian nation. No true Christian would support this murderous empire. Those who defend it are like the servants of Rome.

    Was Rome, at any point in its history "Christian"?
