Well, dor, the US has become much more of a cultural melting pot since the Founding Fathers wrote, and the rights of minorities are given much more consideration than in previous generations today, and rightfully so, I believe.
It's inevitable that things once not considered offensive now are considered offensive by our burgeoning mixture of cultures.
I agree that this can be reduced to absurdity, but still the issue remains about whether we, as a nation, wish to privilege Christianity over other faiths in our national and local governmental expression.
I, as a Christian, do not wish to see that happen.
I believe in the evolutionary process, and I believe in the democratic process.
We have plenty of freedom to express ourselves religiously without forcing our version of spirituality through government channels, thus making it a stench in the nostrils of those we hope to influence.
It all comes down to not shooting oneself in the foot, I think. We're all in this together.
