Fascism the real threat to U.S.
Michael Der Manouel, July 1, demonstrates why fascism, not liberalism, is a growing threat to our democracy.
He makes outrageous claims about Democrats. He claims Democrats hate America, value killing the unborn, legalizing crime, and supporting the use of drugs. He offers no evidence to back his claims.
He thinks he speaks for our founding fathers and Jesus Christ Himself. He thinks he has the authority to speak for all Democratic women and all Republican women. He thinks he is the judge of who is detached from their Creator or not. He thinks this country was founded on only Christian principles. He forgets Americans still have a Bill of Rights, which protects religious freedom. He forgets the concept of separation of church and state implied in the First Amendment. He forgets the words God or Christianity are never used in our constitution. He forgets the Declaration of Independence uses vague terms for the divine, such as God, Supreme Being, Creator, Divine Providence, but never gets specific (Yahweh? Brahma? Jesus? Allah? Holy Ghost?)
Our founding fathers did not declare America a Christian nation! Americans may choose to be Christians or not. Not all Christians are Republicans.
Fascism is America’s greatest threat.
