    Absolutely agree — human beings can figure out right and wrong for themselves — nothing to do with whether it’s written down by anyone.

    I am currently reading The Founding Myth: Why Christian Nationalism Is Un-American by the FFRF attorney Andrew Seidel.

    It is excellent and brings out much about the founders and the publications (and private writings) of the time that make it very clear that the founders specifically eschewed any Xian influence on the formation of the USA (including the Declaration of Independence).

    More than 80% of evangelicals still support Trump. A perfect demonstration of their uniquely flexible Bible-based “morality”.
