a Christian Nation

We want the United States to be a Christian nation. Unless it costs us something.

It may cost our gay neighbors something.

It may cost our Muslim neighbors something.

It may cost the Buddhist 6th-grader something.

That comes with the territory. It's the price they pay. But it won't cost us a thing.

It won't cost us any money. We'll continue to buy cheap products made in unsafe working environments by underpaid workers.

It won't cost us any comforts. We'll keep on coveting the newest thing and adding it to the abundance of our possessions.

It won't cost us our revenge. We're going to execute that low-life scum for what he did to our loved one - vengeance is ours!

It won't cost us our security. We'll just turn away the foreigner and the stranger if welcoming them seems like it could be risky.

Being a Christian nation comes with its costs. Just so long as we don't have to pay them.
