True Liberals Deplore
Church/State Separation

Timothy Birdnow writes in American Thinker:

"Conservatives seem baffled by the animosity held by liberals towards Christians and Jews. Christianity requires the believer submit to authority, accept the rule of government, be charitable to his fellow; in short, be a model citizen. Ditto the Jews, who held these requirements even longer than the Christians. Why are liberals so hostile to both?" [...]

"So, Christianity and Judaism, by giving the World Separation of Church and State, destroyed the old pagan order and splintered the power of the collective will. To those who believe in this collective and the exercise of the will of society over the individual, there can be no worse crime." [...]

Birdnow implies that the ACLU-esque far Left doesn't believe in church/state separation, but rather 'One nation under Washington'. In addition, "Islam can help with the dirty work of crushing the usurper ideologies of Christianity and Judaism, and then, of course, their turn will come."

That's some pretty harsh stuff, but considering the growth of Washington's and Madison's reach, Birdnow may have a point.
