In response to Jeff Durbin’s letter regarding the separation, or more accurately, in his opinion, the lack thereof, of church and state.
I feel the need to ask the good gentleman, which “church” is it he would like to be overseeing our government?
Christian churches vary widely in their politics and policies in the various denominations. Exactly whose “laws” are we referring to here?
I have no desire to interfere with your choice to fast and pray, however, my government has absolutely no right or power to ask this from me. That is the realm of the religious authority that I have the right to disregard. Your right to your choices do not trump my right to be free of such obligations.
So, Mr Durbin, which “church” and exactly which “biblical principles” should our secular government be embracing? Before you answer, I hope you remember the very wise old saying; be careful what you wish for ... you might just get it.
