Christofascism

Over at My Left Wing, there is an interesting discussion going on over this desecration of an American symbol:

The desecration of an American icon.

Much of the discussion involves just how much of a “Christian nation” this is. Paul Rosenberg has an excellent post. It says, in part:

America was founded as a liberal nation, not a Christian nation. That meant that everyone had the right to worship God in the way that they saw fit. Every nation on earth that called itself a “Christian nation” told some of its citizens that they weren’t real Christians, and they didn’t have the same rights. That’s what “Christian nation” meant!

I recommend that you read his entire post (roughly halfway down the page) as well as the rest of the comments.
