Separation of Church and State: The reason why America will no longer be a free nation if Fundamentalist Christian Conservatives get their way.

I do not like bashing anyone. This post isn’t about bashing it is about justifiable truths and equally justifiable worries. Keep in mind that I consider myself a true patroit. But I am a realistic patriot, and I believe that our government needs to stay Constitutional. The poison a lot of Conservative Chirstian groups are pushing concerning church and state also things like school prayer. I am not against any of these things, I am against the mindset of the people that are pushing this issue. People like kayms. Which I would like to debate this with her. Here is my main argument with things like allowing student run prayer during school hours.
Fundamental Conservative Christians start talking this myth of separation of Church and State. But they propagate thier own definition of church. In the Constitution, the word church was a reference to every religion. But Fundamentalist Conservative Christians want you to believe it only means Christianity. Ask a Fundamentalist Conservative Christian, who gets to pray in school and who does not. They will probably reply Christians. Because if we allow student run prayer for one we HAVE to allow it for all the other religions.It is propaganda that they are using to force more of a theological government as opposed to a Democratic Republic. Now as someone who firmly and strongly disagrees with a theological government, and feels that such a government is just a Dictatorship. Or any other oppressive form of government. Because not only Christians serve in this countries military, logically we should assume that members of every major and minor religion has shead blood for this country. So every religion, like the people that worship in those religions are legally equal. So if Christians get to have prayer during certain times, the so do Muslims. If we allow those two we then have to allow buddhism, wiccan practices, and any other religious belief recognized by the US Government. Is anyone under the false impression Kay or Sarah Palin would allow thier children to go to a school that allows muslims to observe thier religion. Or any other religion by that matter. We forget that Christianity spread much like cancer throughout the New and Old Worlds. We forget that civilizations were destroyed because they were called “savages”. That much of the old religions are gone because Christianity and Islam has destroyed it all. We have lost knowledge, or atleast information from being known. So why should anyone think these Conservative Christians will change thier tune after they get thier way. Or make it a much bigger issue than it needs to be, putting a puppet such as Sarah Palin in position to make America a Christian Theological government with rules and concepts contridictory to thier own theology. Mind you the same people talking about separation of church and state, speak of bringing this country back to a God that was never recognized as the nations God. That God really is an ambigious term that is the definition of one’s believe in a higher power or powers. Does anyone else see the problem now? We then go from a country that preaches about freedom of religion to becoming a country that preaches about freedom of christian denomination. People like Glenn Beck, Kayms, Bill Keller, Osama Bin Laden, and any other religious fanatic that speaks as if thier goal is to strip freedoms. I believe in school prayer, I believe in allowing different religious clubs on high school campuses. Provided they actually teach the different theologies. From Allah to the Flying Spagetti Monster. I think we should allow prayer breaks to those who wish to do so. I feel that if a student that follows Islam or Judaism wants to follow thier religion and pray in the middle of the day then they should be allowed. If Christian students can do it, Constitutionally every student can. This is where separation of Church and State really comes from. The myth is perpetrated by the Christian Church. Because they dont want thier kids learning about other religions.
edit: I edited this because not all Conservative Christians think this way. The Conservative Christians apart of the FUNDAMENTALIST movement, do think this way.
