What’s the proper role of the federal government? According to U.S. Representative John Fleming, the role of the government is to wage war against atheists on behalf of Christianity.
Here’s what Congressman Fleming had to say on the matter, talking about why he refuses to “reach across the aisle” and work with congressional Democrats:
“We are either going to go down the socialist road and become like western Europe and create, I guess, really a godless society, an atheist society, or we’re going to continue down the other pathway where we believe in freedom of speech, individual liberties and that we remain a Christian nation. So we’re going to have to win that battle, we’re going to have to solve that argument before we can once again reach across and work together on things.”
Yes, Representative Fleming is actually saying that Republicans can’t work with Democrats until the federal government wins the battle against the godless to make the USA a Christian nation.
Religious civil war, then cooperation after the smoke clears – that’s the Fleming agenda.
