Christian Destroys Atheist on Hardball

Leave it to good ole Ken Blackwell to perfectly summarize Christian thought in this heated battle against that heathen elitist Christopher Hitchens. I'm thinking Mr. Hitchens should change his first name to Lucifer, because there ain't nothing Christ-like in his words.

Mr. Blackwell is a good friend of the country, as he has shown time and time again. He totally should have been the RNC head. He's one of five African American's in the RNC, but unlike Michael Steele, he is a true Republican.

Yesterday on Hardball, he takes Mr. Hitchens to task for his ridiculous comments that we are not a Christian nation. That is just laughable, I don't know where to start on that.

Here's some excerpts from this excellent performance by Mr. Blackwell.
BLACKWELL: Let me just ask you, let me just ask you, Christopher, do you think that the founders and the Pilgrims were not Christians?
HEATHEN: The Pilgrims were Christians.
BLACKWELL: If we`re talking about historical accuracy, let`s be forthright. You know it, and I know it, that in this country...
HEATHEN: No, no, the Pilgrims -- the Pilgrims are not the founders, my dear sir.
Whatever heathen, that is just dumb of you, and Mr. Blackwell just destroyed all your arguments. The Pilgrims were Christian, they landed on Plymouth Rock, Plymouth Rock didn't land on them, and they founded this Christian nation. The Founders were direct descendents of the Pilgrims I am pretty sure on that. Case closed.
BLACKWELL: There is a separation -- there is a separation of church and state. There is not a separation of faith and politics.And there has never been the presumption that we run our day-to-day lives through a faithless prism when we make our decisions. We`re not told that we have to leave our faith at the public square`s edge.So, it is just flat-out nonsense to suggest that this country was built on anything other than an understanding of Judeo-Christian principles and precepts that give us the moral foundation that allows free market enterprise and the primacy of the individual in our political system, not the primacy of the state.
HEATHEN: You can search in vain through the First Amendment to the Constitution to find any such reference. Or you could -- why don`t you try checking out...
BLACKWELL: Christopher...
HEATHEN: ... Thomas Jefferson`s version of the New Testament, for example, where he cuts out -- cuts out all references to the divinity of Jesus?
I'm so glad he made that point, because that is the basis of the CLF, Conservatives Loving Freedom. The founding documents were all about ensuring free market principles to rule. They were all against government intervention and all for privatization of government services, for-profit religious schools, and Milton Friedman-type economics. Mr. Blackwell is smart, I'm not surprised he was able to make the same connections as I was. I don't know where to start on that heathen's comments, but they were all lies, I assure you of that, so I really don't need to go into it anymore.

The only problem I have with Mr. Blackwell's comments is that he was tricked into saying there is a separation of church and state. That is just wrong, there's only a wall to keep government out of the Church, not the other way around. The Church can do whatever it wants, as long as it is Christian and conservative. But I will forgive Mr. Blackwell for this error because I really think that heathen tricked him with his heathenistic trickery.

Right on Mr. Blackwell!! You be da man!!.

Reggie, was reading up on your links (great btw!) and found this particular one from Jefferson. We can use this one to PROVE that teaching intelligent design along with that nutty evolution stuff was what the Christian founders wanted! Check it out:

--Religion (in Publicly Supported Education)
"After stating the constitutional reasons against a public establishment of any religious instruction, we suggest the expediency of encouraging the different religious sects to establish, each for itself, a professorship of their own tenets on the confines of the university, so near as that their students may attend the lectures there and have the free use of our library and every other accommodation we can give them; preserving, however, their independence of us and of each other. This fills the chasm objected to ours, as a defect in an institution professing to give instruction in all useful sciences... And by bringing the sects together, and mixing them with the mass of other students, we shall soften their asperities, liberalize and neutralize their prejudices, and make the general religion a religion of peace, reason, and morality." --Thomas Jefferson to Thomas Cooper, 1822. ME 15:405

It says right there that Jefferson wanted a "mix" of religion and the rest of the why can't the factual intelligent design science book be mixed in with the monkey science-fiction book?

Sorry bachmann2012, I have been busy working and have not been at the CLF site to respond. Also been developing the minutes for tomorrows meeting.

As for your points, you are spot on as usual. Just look at the bolded words of Thomas Jefferson, he is saying just what we are saying. I am having a problem with the unbolded words though. Maybe you should delete that post and include just the bolded words, that will help our cause more I think.
