2. There is no "national" denomination.

Protestants don't consider Catholics as a viable religion. Catholics and Protestants don't consider Jews as a true religion.

Lutherans hate Presbyterians and nobody likes the Unitarians except the Unitarian Universalists who kind of like everybody but would rather sing tortured new hymns that sound like scratching cats that talk about Jesus and lets not forget the Congregationals who just wont abide the snake handlers and the spider Christians....

The Hindus hate the Sheiks and the Moonies are driven by money and the Orthodox, well, they are just iconoclasts and beside, they let their priest grow beard but not like the Amish because they can have beards but no mustache.

3. A return to sectarian squabbling will be most welcome

as the Reagan coalition continues to break down, each sect arguing for its own dogma to be written into civil law while opposing the dogma of rival sects, or even the wording from rival sects when they agree on the basic idea.

After all, what sparked the Nativist Riots in Philadelphia in the mid 1800s was a law telling all schools to post the Ten Commandments without specifying which bible they were to be taken from.

Religion was never meant to be a driving force in politics and this country has run into trouble every time it has been.

4. I want to see the battle between the pre-millennialists vs the dominionists

They are both end-timers, but the latter wants to see their warped Christianity take over the world before Jesus comes back. The former see world-ending war bringing on Jesus' return.

Maybe we can get these dudes openly fighting for political gain. Good sport, that. The public will eat it up.

This is your Republican party.
