Guys, we need to nail down what 'keeping America a Christian country' would mean in actual practice.
For starters, there are millions of non-Christians in this country. Far more than Dave probably realizes out there in Indiana. What should 'be done' about them them? Governmental pressure? Coerced conversions? Punishment? Expulsion?
Or do GoP and AFD envision a sort of dhimmitude, where non-Christians would be tolerated, but forbidden from holding public office, teaching, voting, or having access to the media? You know, they wouldn't be punished or anything, per sé, but they'd endure a sort of low-level harassment, including paying higher taxes than everyone, until they converted?
Also, would certain non-Christian religions be considered more worthy of governmental pressure than others? Would Jews be higher on the food chain than atheists, Muslims, and Hindus? Also, would groups like Mormons, Jehovah's Witnesses and Christian Scientists be counted as full Christians, or just partial Christians?
Also, would this require outlawing the teaching of evolution in public schools and colleges? If so, what punishments do you envision for people and institutions who refuse to quit teaching it? Fines, loss of jobs, jail time? Would it be a misdemeanor or something more serious? Would secular universities be banned outright?
And what about parts of the country that resisted this? Would a central authority be enlisted to enforce this, or do you envision a sort of 'States Rights' system whereby certain parts of the country could opt out of the theocracy?
Lots of details to work out, guys.
