I guess I'm missing your point or points. This country was also founded by

Fortunately this Calvinist brand of democracy has evolved, and is still evolving. Christians can stick together under some unrealized ideal termed 'basic moral values' all they wish. But lets keep it out of the lawmaking bodies. Lets not pass laws to enforce 'basic moral values'. But I guess Republicans are evolving, too. They went from limited government to government in our homes, our airwaves, our wombs and our bloodstreams.
