Secular Democrats of America Demand Secularism in the White House

“Its political ideology is anti-democratic and anti-scientific. It provides constant cover for white supremacy.”

Published

The secular Democrats of America prepared a report specifically for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. It was presented by representatives Jamie Raskin and Jared Huffman. It is essentially their demand and plan to make American government completely and totally secular humanist.

You can find the entire report right here.

Below are specific quotes from the report.

The rise of white Christian nationalism is a national security threat. We recommend you: encourage the Department of Homeland Security and Department of Justice to dedicate resources to the deradicalization programs at hate groups, including, but not limited to, white nationalists; increase monitoring of such groups, including the online environment and take action to address increased hate crimes towards minority faith communities; and shift rhetoric to label violent white nationalist extremist as terrorist

We believe that this is a moment not only to enact policies to advance constitutional secularism but position the democratic party to take back the mantle of religious freedom and pluralism from the republican party.

We urge you not to underestimate the institutional strength of what we refer to (interchangeably) in this document as the Christian nationalist movement or the religious right. This movement is extraordinarily well funded and well organized in the manifestation of its extreme Insectarium agenda is a constant display under the Trump-Pence administration. Its political ideology is anti-democratic and anti-scientific. It provides constant cover for white supremacy.

Its agenda rests on a pinched interpretation of biblical principles preached by Christian nationalist leader ship and thought leaders. With their political agenda sanctioned by a higher power, their base of support is disciplined, motivated, and deeply committed to a vision that does not align with our basic constitutional values and democratic principles.

We ask that you counter this movement narrative by actively working to dismantle its grip on our government and counter it’s in accurate and revisionist messaging around our nation’s founding.

Policy decisions that should be guided by science and evidence, on matters ranging from climate change to comprehensive sex education to federal funding for stem cell research, I’ve been scooter blocked entirely by powerful religious interest groups and further undermined at every turn by the Trump administration.

The first three areas where we believe President Trump has violated basic constitutional principles and elevated religious privilege over the Bill of Rights and the common good. The fourth area of focus is protecting the rights and dignity of nontheists.

According to Gallup the most mistrusted religious minorities in the United States are atheists and Muslims.

Utilize every mechanism at the administrations disposal to ensure that the Department of Education does not funnel taxpayer dollars to private schools.

Reverse all executive orders, rules, memoranda, and other actions that exempt faith based organizations contracting with the federal government from non-discrimination requirements that apply to secular organizations.

We are at your administration to disincentive eyes state funding for programs that are not evidence-based in which can cause harm by spreading misinformation, such as crisis pregnancy centers and abstinence only education programs.

Work with Congress to incentivize states to increase their vaccination rates by repealing all non-medical exemptions to mandatory vaccination for children in schools and day care centers.

Fully and robustly fund comprehensive, medically accurate sex education.

Donald Trump has empowered the religious right in ways no other administration has before, making significant advances in enacting their Christian nationalist agenda.

Oppose religious displays on government property and recognize this issue’s importance as a matter of basic constitutional respect.

Issue guidance that clarifies the duty and obligation of government officials to separate their personal religious beliefs from their work.

Crackdown on nonprofits operating as businesses, including mega churches.

Update the current guidelines to clarify the constitutional boundaries of religious expression in public schools.

Disentangle the conflation of faith and patriotism. In public statements, avoid phrases like “God and country.”

With the rise of Christian nationalism, there is an urgent need to reframe public discourse surrounding patriotism.

When listing faiths in public remarks or talking about religious pluralism, always include non-religious people.

The current motto, “In God We trust,” is a relic of McCarthyism in the anti-atheist hysteria of the 1950s, and it has been invoked by Christian nationalists to reinforce their historically revisionist narrative of our nations founding.

We urge you to avoid invoking the phrase “Judeo-Christian values,” as it has been Weaponized by the religious right to advancing agenda that has the veneer of inclusivity but actually undermines religious freedom and tolerance and does not represent tens of millions of Americans implicitly excluded from its formulation.

GOP Primaries, for GOP Registered Voters

It is to our overwhelming advantage to ensure that only registered Republicans are able to participate

Published

on

Let us resolve to keep our primary voting to those who are registered Republicans. One can make the argument that there are closet Republicans who, for fear of reprisal in the workplace, cannot join the Republican party but are, nevertheless, Republican in sentiment.

However, this is a small group. And, they are more than offset by hordes of Democrats who, if allowed into Republican primaries will do their dirty work as they have done throughout counties in North Carolina and throughout the nation.

Only Republicans

Overall, it is to our overwhelming advantage to ensure that only registered Republicans are able to participate.

As a case in point, on the national level, the RINO Nikki Haley would be out of the race if not for Democrat voters stepping over the line in coordinated effort and voting in Republican primaries. Granted, she is backed by billionaire mega-donors who fear Donald Trump. If Democrats could not vote in the GOP primaries, however, the mega-donors dollars wouldn’t be worth much.

As a result of Haley staying in the race, Donald Trump has to spend a bit more than otherwise, and deflect some of his attention away from the Democrats, the swamp, and the Marxist’s plans to destroy our country.

Fracturing Along Fault Lines

The panoply of liberal and Leftist policies are harmful to society

Published

on

Biden and company want to contort the right to vote, endlessly fund Ukraine, kowtow to Middle East terrorists, pack the Supreme Court, end the filibuster, disband the electoral college, treat January 6th protestors like insurrectionists, convict Trump on SOMETHING, appease China, and permanently make tens of millions of Americans totally dependent on government entitlements.

In recent years, the questionable lockdowns, restrictions, and mandates over COVID-19, and Democrats’ willingness to overlook street violence, enhances my view that the Left loves the idea of total authority and forevermore imposing its will on all of us.

Insanity Over the Top

The panoply of liberal or Leftist viewpoints, from no need for voter ID to restrictions on the 1st Amendment, to indoctrinating children is harmful to society.

Is it acceptable to teach children that there are more than 50 genders? Do you believe, as Leftists do that children may choose their gender? Do you think that cross-dressers ought to be reading to children at story hour? Should the sciences, mathematics, and other core academic disciplines be taught to accommodate ‘politically diverse’ points of view?

Are you okay with colleges holding separate graduation exercises and celebrations for different ethnic minorities? Martin Luther King, Jr, must be rolling over in his grave. Should entire college curricula be redesigned because most of the great works of literature throughout history have been written by white males?

Should student loans be exonerated? Should colleges establish safe spaces? Are you perturbed when conservative speakers are disrupted from speaking on campus, or are banned from campus? Curiously, can a university promise students an unbiased education when 97% of college professors’ political donations go to Democrats?

Open the Spigots!

Should Medicare be provided for all and, if so, how do you pay for it? Is late-trimester abortion acceptable? After a baby is born, is it the right of the mother and the doctor to choose whether or not that person will continue to live?

Should we have open borders, and let in anyone who wants to come here, now approaching 9 million since Biden was installed? Are illegal immigrants to be given free healthcare once they cross the border, as all Democrat presidential contenders stated on live TV in 2020? How do hordes arrive at the southern border, well-fed and hydrated, after trekking 100s or 1000s of miles, with sturdy walking shoes and cell phones? Should they be flown and bussed all over the U.S. courtesy of the Biden administration? Are sanctuary cities a good idea, and do they support the lives and aspirations of actual U.S. citizens?

When newspaper headlines scream about gun violence, is wringing your hands over the issue any solace for families in Chicago or Baltimore ghetto communities who experience gun violence on a daily basis? Do you care about the issue, or do you only get riled up when the mainstream media stokes your emotions by giving World War II coverage to carefully crafted, elevated cases?

Is calling others racist acceptable when, in your own heart, you know that you are biased at times against this group or that? Is virtue signaling an acceptable form of social participation, or should one actually take appropriate, non-violent action to address a perceived wrong? Is a comment from 30 or 40 years ago made by a celebrity — or a politician, for that matter — enough to cancel his or her career?

Goals and Tactics of Violent Groups

Are the goals and violent tactics of Antifa acceptable to you? If they’re proud of what they stand for and forthright in their actions, why do they wear ski masks? Appearing in selected cities in time to cause trouble, and leading the turmoil following the death of George Floyd, how many of them actually hold jobs?

In pursuit of protests, do any pay for their own transportation and housing costs? If they do not pay for themselves, who is paying? Most curiously, why do they often go after the most vulnerable people they can find in any gathering? Is it okay when law enforcement stands down in the face of violence committed by those on the left?

The Left embraces mass insanity and it’s getting more absurd all the time. Yet, it appears that Leftists do not understand the magnitude and ramifications of many of their political and social views. Their agenda, fully implemented, would destroy our civilization in less than a few years.
One Generation

Ronald Reagan said, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men [and women] were free.”

It would be nice to reach consensus, in some way, with those on the Left, however, my sensibilities cry out and say that would be cultural and national suicide.
