I haven’t been able to quote the entire article (thanks, Facebook :evil: )

What surprised me when a guest pastor in the LCMS congregation where I’m a member went on a diatribe during his sermon on 14 Nov., 2021 regarding Mr. Flynn’s comments one God (preferably the God Mr. Flynn wants every man, woman, and child to worship.)

If THIS happens, then there really won't be a freedom of religion in the US.

Hasn't that been the goal the theocrats have been working towards for decades?

And unfortunately seems they are starting to get their way in some states, such as Texas.

Theocracy in the US? Do tell.

From the places I've been, there were synagogues and Buddhist temples in some parts in the country.

If they ban fornication and non-procreational sex, I would overthrow that government.

There is no emotion, there is peace.
There is no ignorance, there is knowledge.
There is no passion, there is serenity.
There is no chaos, there is harmony.
There is no death, there is the Force

Correction:

The peace is a lie, there is only passion.
Through passion, I gain strength.
Through strength, I gain power.
Through power, I gain victory.
And through victory, all my chains are broken. :twisted:

Existence is a choice.
There is no chaos in the world, only complexity.
Knowledge of the complex is wisdom.
From wisdom of the world comes wisdom of the self.
Mastery of the self is mastery of the world.
Loss of the self is the source of suffering.
Suffering is a choice, and we can refuse it.
It is in our own power to create the world, or destroy it.

Of course Flynn is referring to establishing Christianity as the sole American religion. Well, as there's far more than just one kind of Christian theology, it can be a sure bet that he means evangelical type churches, which would leave the rest of us non-evangelicals hung out to dry.
