No Virginia, Liberty Does Not Require All Religions To Be Equal

-
Roanoke Times, 5-18-12, Pg 14: Editorial: The politics of religion.
-
A long and labored and convoluted dissertation trying to compare JFK’s address to the nation about his Catholic religion and Romney’s address to Liberty Univ. about his Mormon religion.
-
I well remember JFK’s address. JFK felt compelled to assure Americans that he would “follow the requirements of the Constitution and not the dictates of The Pope.”
This was in the context of those who reflected that Alf Smith’s Catholic beliefs played a key role in his loss of the election of 1928 and also there was a very significant Southern distrust of the Catholic orthodoxy and control structure (and in many circles there still is!).

-
Romney’s talk at Liberty was a parallel path assuring Americans that his religion forms a solid and compatible set of values consistent with the Constitution and traditional American beliefs and values. It is today in the main-stream of American culture and history.
-
The editors “punch-line” that “all religions to be equal” is totally outside of the mainstream and reality and history! On the contrary; not only are not all religions equal, there are religions that are antipathetic to Liberty and Freedom and the sanctity of human life. Some notable examples are:
-
The Radical Muslims are using the Koran to propagate their hate and terror.
"I have been made victorious through terror" (Bukhari 4.52.220) --Muhammad.
-
Radical-religion drove the Jap-Kamikaze Wars with incredible atrocities using the Shinto religion.
-
The Puritans burned women using religion as the basis for witchcraft trials.
-
The KKK abused their version of the Christian religion to propagate their hate and terror.
-
So editors -- NO! All religions should not be treated equally. We all should be mindful of how religion can be misused and we should not shy away from “calling out” those who use religion for inappropriate and destructive means.
-
When Lincoln was asked by a reporter if he thought God was on our side?
Lincoln replied: The right question is: Are we on God’s side?
