Delay: There is a War in America against Christianity
"raw dogma" by Nkrumah Steward, creator of 8BM.com

There are so many “wars” that we are involved in right now that they’re hard to keep track of.
We are at war with terrorist.
We are at war with illiteracy.
We are at work with drugs.
We are at war with Christianity.
Yeah, you didn’t know that did you?
According to soon to be, scandal magnet, former Republican House Majority leader Tom Delay, there is a “war on Christianity” going on in America.
Now I know that he is using the term war figuratively, but even when using it figuratively, I am curious as to what exactly has to happen for something to get to be a “war”?
I can see it in sports.
Two teams or individuals fighting it out for a championship where there can only be one winner.
I can even see it in law enforcement. But how can there be a “war” against Christianity in an overwhelmingly Christian nation unless it’s between different warring factions of Christians?
Sure the Girl Scouts of America can say that they are at war with the US military but somehow I don't think that is enough to get the Pentagon to add "need funding to combat the Girl Scouts" to the next budget.
Delay said to a group of reporters after a speech to a group of Christian conservatives, partly in response to Sandra Day O'Connor and Ruth Ginsburg complaining that some of his comments fuel the more “irrational fringes” of his fundamentalist constituents to do distinctly Christian things like threaten to kill people, "Our faith has always been in direct conflict with the values of the world," DeLay said. "We are, after all, a society that provides abortion on demand, has killed millions of innocent children, degrades the institution of marriage, and all but treats Christianity like some second-rate superstition."
Christians love to imagine that they are being persecuted don’t they?
If they have a collective wet dream, that would be it.
For all of the so-called Christians proudly displaying their crosses across their chests whenever it is convenient to discard their mild-mannered alter-egos, I don’t see many of them in Washington that I can identify as trying to be Christ like.
Isn’t that what a Christian is, someone that is trying to live his life by the example set by Christ?
I know you can’t say one way or the other on how Jesus would fall on things like space exploration because that whole concept was beyond mankind at that point.
For all they knew back then, stars were the holes in the black cloth that God covered the earth with when it was time for us to go “nighty nighty”.
How many proponents of capital punishment in Washington that claim to be such proud Christians could look you in the eye, keep a straight face and argue that Jesus was a proponent of Capital punishment?
So forgive me if I am a bit confused as to how these so called political conservatives see themselves connected to Christians outside of whatever logic they use within their heads.
If there is a war going on against Christianity, it is being fought within their ranks, not against forces outside of it.
Why would the rest of us care about a second-rate superstition anyway, right?
