There is a certain flavor to your writing that strikes me. You express disapproval of strong Christian confidence in Christian doctrine. You seem to prefer that Christians keep it down so as not to offend......There is a connection in your thinking between "church and state" , if you will, or Ceasar and Religion, that is in conflict with the Freedom that is a hallmark of American tradition that permits dissention without punishment. Repressive regimes use coersion of thought and opinion to enforce submission.

Anything "different" is a threat since it can't be controlled. I assert that aspects of Liberty as envisioned by our Founders proceeded from The Bible, and in particular, can be characterized by a Scripture from the letter to the Galatians; "..Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is Liberty..."

To stay on topic, let me finish by saying, that LORD is not allah.......
