George Washington versus Bill O’Reilly

“There’s a very secret plan … to diminish Christian philosophy in the U.S.A.”

So says, Bill O’Reilly. I hate to say it, but Bill is right. And that plot was started by George, (not Soros)

“The government of the United States is not in any sense founded on the Christian Religion.”

George Washington

So 210+ years later and the forces of Secularism still haven’t destroyed Christianity and its influence here in America. Makes me wonder if the original George W had it all wrong; and the separating Church and State actually works to protect both rather than eliminate the latter. The other possibility is that the wall between Church and State was never meant to destroy Christianity. Perhaps Secularists are motivated by some other goal totally unrelated to any alleged hatred of religion. Perhaps, motivated by a healthy distrust of government; they wish to limit its influence in this critical area of faith and other matters of conscience. One would think that limiting Government intervention in those matters would be an area of common ground between Liberals and Conservatives rather than such a divisive fault line.
