The Myth of "Pluralism"

Congress should
  • recognize that America is a Christian nation
  • ignore the myth of "pluralism"

Modern secularists have problems understanding the American relationship between religion and government because they do not understand that the Founders believed

  • Religion was the foundation of government;
  • There was a true religion and there were other false religions;
  • It would be suicidal to base a commonwealth on a false religion;
  • The Government, in order to survive, must endorse and promote the true religion.

Every single person who signed the Constitution agreed with these four premises, and they agreed that the true religion was Christianity. It doesn't matter that they didn't agree among themselves as to the details of the Christian religion. It doesn't matter that they made sure that one variety of Christianity would have no legal power over other varieties of Christianity. What matters is that not a single signer of the Constitution believed in the "separation of church and state" where the word "church" means "Christianity, the true religion."

The pages below are designed to explain these propositions and to show that they were universally held by the Founding Fathers.
