We're all for the separation of church and state and freedom of religion. Let's face it though, there is a massive swath of people in the US who claim that we're "a Christian nation." Politicians like Michele Bachmann, Rick Santorum, and Rick Perry use Christianity to push an agenda that is decidedly NOT Christian. We need to call them out.
We are not a "Christian nation" by any stretch of the imagination.
We blame the least of these for our problems and then punish and exploit them for our own greedy and power-hungry ways. God is not at all pleased with this kind of behavior and we will pay for it. We already are. Let's wake up and rise up Christians. Let's quit believing the lies we've been told for so long now by the right-wing. Let us see what is going on around us. Let us do something about it. We don't need a state religion. We need to act like Christ, and we don't.
