Response to Nancy Waterman (Original post)

13. Because we concede the mythology.

We concede that the Founding Fathers were Evangelical capitalists rather than revolutionary radical rationalists that paid lip service to an abstract Deism.

We concede that in the classrooms and that raises a population that is largely uninformed about the reality of our roots.

They then hijack rational discourse by appealing to issues (faith, prayer, guns) that hark back to an America that never existed.

We are always dealing with the symptoms rather than the disease.
