34. I agree with you..
whenever asked to clarify their stand, they always obfustcate or don't answer the question: "So, the US decides to recognize the Christian religion as the defacto faith of this country... which denomination is going to be the one that is adopted by the constitution? Southern Baptist? Episcopal? Lutheran? AME Methodist? Apostolic/Pentacostal? COGIC? Mormon? Catholicism?

What happens if someone doesn't want to abandon their own beliefs to adopt the state beliefs? Reinstitute heresy laws? What's the punishment--burning at the stake? An act of attainder?

See, they aren't thinking that far ahead---their thinking stops at "God wants the US to be a Christian nation". Either they have yet to consider the entire enterprise or they know and will lie to you about their intentions until they've moved enough legal roadblocks into place to begin implementing their ideas.
