Ideally, the purpose of a free press is to act as accountability on behalf of the people by making sure they are all informed as to what their government is doing when they think no one is watching. Now journalism is being forbidden to watch, and the abuses of power just keep coming.
Intriguing. How ‘One Nation’ Didn’t Become ‘Under God’ Until The ’50s Religious Revival
I have long disbelieved the myth of “Christian America”. The idea that my nation could become Christian flies in the face of the whole concept of separation of church and state to which Baptists have historically adhered. We are rather, a nation that permits free expression of religion, and is not, at least until recently, hostile to Christianity, or any other belief system. I think this myth of the “Christian Nation” distracts Christians from actually trying to influence and engage their culture in a positive way, because instead Christians are fighting to preserve a Nation that never really existed.
