My Blue America

I am so sorry you feel this way. If you actually had a clue as to what made this nation great, you would quit trying to suck the life out of it. America was founded on great conservative christian values (the Ten Commandments). You are free in this country to think and for the most part do what ever you want. But you do not have the right to hijack this country with your socialist values that undermine our national identity and security. We will continue to fight you and the terrorist with every fiber in our bodies. Because it is you who invited the terrorist into our country to kill our family members

The quote above is a comment left on my Radical Rosie post by someone calling him/herself “Righteous.”

Well, I say that those who don’t know our country’s history are bound to keep screwing it up.
Perhaps “Righteous” is referring to those “Christians” who fled from Europe to seek religious freedom, freedom from persecution. Oddly enough,
Although they were victims of religious persecution in Europe, the Puritans supported the Old World theory that sanctioned it, the need for uniformity of religion in the state. Once in control in New England, they sought to break “the very neck of Schism and vile opinions.” The “business” of the first settlers, a Puritan minister recalled in 1681, “was not Toleration, but [they] were professed enemies of it.”

Puritans expelled dissenters from their colonies, a fate that in 1636 befell Roger Williams and in 1638 Anne Hutchinson, America’s first major female religious leader. Those who defied the Puritans by persistently returning to their jurisdictions risked capital punishment, a penalty imposed on four Quakers between 1659 and 1661.

In other words, those righteous Christians became the kind of persecutors they were running away from. We all know what they did to those poor old women they decided were witches, right? But that’s another long and horrible story that needs truth telling about.

And let’s not forget all those Native Americans that were displaced and persecuted and executed by all of those righteous Christian members of our military:

  1. Wow, you rock. “How’s the weather?” IOW, she’s one of us. From one who remembers distinctly that lots of us hippies wore red, white and blue and we wanted to be proud of it not just patriotic. It is so refreshing to hear such courage. I was truly moved. Here is a good link . http://www.earlyamerica.com/review/summer97/secular.html
    You have a wonderful evening and know that some of us believe in power that would never punish you for not knowing its name, or not making a donation at the twenty five dollar level, or doubting its very existence, or even not caring that it exists at all.
