Consider Theocracy

I will consider theocracy as a possible alternative to our Constitutional republic when Christians can explain to me, and provide valid historical support including from the founders and framers of America, explanations for the following:

1. The complete lack of reference to any God in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, other than the reference to the date at the end of the Constitution.

2. The complete lack of any reference or allusion to a scripture in the Constitution or the Bill of Rights.

3. Why the Barbary Treaty of 1797 says, "
As the government of the United States of America is not in any sense founded on the Christian Religion...."

4. Why, after the Constitution was ratified, most of the states changed their constitutions and deleted all references to God and Christ.

5. Why, after almost 200 years, it was necessary to change the Pledge of Allegiance.

6. An explanation of the full context of Thomas Jefferson's inscription on the Jefferson Memorial in Washington DC.

7. Why Christians feel it's necessary to violate the dictates of the Bible in presenting a revised history to their children and fellow worshippers.

8. Why it's necessary for them to try to change America to be a Christian nation by acts of legislation instead of the influence of love. How is that being a light that so shines before men?

9. What kind of governmental structure would exist under a theocracy, and how would it guarantee the inalienable rights of all men to be equal.

When I hear the answers to the above, following the criteria I laid out at the beginning, I will consider theocracy a viable alternative to a Constitutional republic.

it looked so easy, our heritage beckoned
the nation was, after all, christian
and so they began their crusade marching toward theocracy
and as they plodded the children wailed “are we there yet?”
and god whispered back “you're going the wrong way”
