Should The US Be A Theocracy?
Mon Mar 6, 2017 8:41am (XFF:

We often discuss various instances where someone attempts to promote Christian beliefs via the state. Those who support these types of things are typically afraid that some other faith will take power if they don't (fears of Shariah implementation in the US) or they feel that various privileges they have enjoyed are not subject to the separation of church and state because of tradition. We are assured that such will not lead to any kind of a Christian theocracy.

Well, here's just the latest example of the kind of thing we have to push back against. When you foster the idea that a particular faith is entitled to privileges, there are people waiting to try to take the next step.

(if Christians) don’t get involved in government, the government will get involved in you, and you won’t like the results. The government will run over you and you won’t have any say it. So Christians have to stand up and make sure that they have a say in their government and that they’re protecting their rights and our religious liberties which are being trampled on every day across this nation. If we don’t speak out, those liberties will be taken away. You can see it day after day, case after case.

That doesn't seem to line up at all with this:
John 18:36 Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.

And if there was any doubt:
Saccone has also written a book titled “God in Our Government.” In his book, the Republican politician argues that God has always been a part of the government, and implies that the U.S. has always been, a de facto Christian theocracy.

This is dangerous. Giving any faith political power leads to people with the best of intentions making your decisions for you. These people do this with a fervent belief that they are doing the right thing. You may not like it in the short term, but you will thank them in the afterlife. It's for your own good.

I posted this because some have said that it isn't a serious issue. We should just leave those traditional privileges alone. What's the harm?

This guy has already been elected to office and is now seeking to move up the ladder to the US Senate.
