Is it possible my interests may not match your interests and that’s why our founders wrote a Constitution? Is it possible government could have my interests at heart today but in two years following a series of elections may leave a more nefarious intent?
What people are failing to comprehend is the document is the only thing separating us from tyranny and right now many God fearing people are being terrorized by government and cultural elites. These God fearing people are being forced to make some choices. They can live underground and conduct business as outlaws or they can follow the edicts of the current fashionistas. Following the latest fashion will condemn them to hell. It’s what they believe. Life as an outlaw or jailed is then a better alternative. You may think their notions of a creator and hell are daft. You also have an opinion and not fact. Again, we don’t all have the same beliefs. In Europe for centuries people were hounded, tortured and often killed for having a faith not sanctioned by governing authorities and for opinions running counter to the transient trends of the day.
This is why a small band of revolutionaries severed ties with Europe and then enumerated the rights given you by God. And the last I looked the majority of Americans still called themselves Christians, although you’ve already surmised many aren’t just illiterate about matters of our founding but faith as well. Jesus was a confrontational figure (the money lenders at the temple thought surely He was) and when it came to marriage He hewed to the old text. He didn’t pat people atop their heads and tell them whatever floated their boats was O.K.
