The religious right in the U.S. is Bible based. Therefore, reality and truth are not very important to them. Their main purpose is to subvert the Constitutional Republic into a Judeo-Christian theocracy. One way to do this is to distort America's real history and to make sure America's forgotten religion, Deism, remains forgotten.

One requirement of attaining the power necessary to subvert the U.S. into a theocracy is to place Bible believing Christians on the school boards across the country. In Texas they have been very successful! As they continue their march for real power, our children and grandchildren are being forced to embrace the fallacious nonsense these religious zealots promote.

Not only have they been successful in Texas, they've been successful across the United States. With the recent victory of the Pat Robertson protege, Bob McDonnell in the race for governor of Virginia, to the Obama White House Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships, the religious right is making giant gains at the expense of reason and liberty.

One way to successfully combat these promoters of Dark Ages mentality is to educate people about their lies. For example, they teach that America was designed by America's Founders to be a Christian nation. Even former presidential candidate John McCain openly parroted this huge lie and specifically said that the U.S. Constitution established the United States as a Christian nation! This makes clear that McCain never read the U.S. Constitution, for if he had, he would realize clearly that the opposite is true. The U.S. Constitution NEVER mentions God and prohibits the establishment of religion by the government.

It is up to those of us who know and care enough to take action, or to support those who are taking action, and to educate people to the reality of things. The facts are on our side!

Many people who are swayed by the demagoguery of the religious right hold America's Founders in high esteem. If it became common knowledge that America's Founders who were key to the American Revolution were not Christians but were Deists, Founders like George Washington himself, the religious right would soon lose its power to persuade and to influence current events. True progress would then be firmly on the horizon!
