Have you ever wondered what happened to conservative politics in America- whether you are conservative, liberal, progressive or even non-political?Or why every time we turn around we are hearing more and more of this new brand of conservative politician citing God and biblical law as their justification for changing OUR laws in America? Does it cause you concern to hear about proposed changes such as charging a woman with murder if she has a miscarriage and cannot prove that it happened spontaneously? Or the push to grant a zygote the status of "personhood". Or that there are politicians and clergy who want to export homosexuals and revoke their citizenship?
Or that textbooks are being re-written as we saw in Texaslast year, to accommodate a false sense that our nation was founded as a solely Christian Nation?
How about targeting the public schools because they view them as “institutions of Satan” by defunding programs and shifting the money to build up the Charter Schools (mostly Christian) and homeschooling funding (again, mostly Christian)?
