Another Prayer text: "Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom and glory for ever and ever. Amen.”
- Lords Prayer
The vast majority of politicians in this country seem to be Christian. Everyone in this country has the right to practice the religion of their choice, but there is a tacit hypocrisy in those politicians who claim to follow Christ and then leave citizens defenseless in terms of their healthcare, housing, and sustenance. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with being a Christian, but it’s extremely problematic to push an unphilosophical interpretation of the Bible into law. Homophobia and women’s reproductive rights have been targeted specifically by a religious “morality” that forgoes “love thy neighbor as thine self” and replaces it with a “go to hell” clause.
