The atheists and secular humanists have hurt our nation, conservative commentator insists
“I believe the one reason we have some of the conditions that you talked about at the beginning of the show is because we have ousted God from public life because of a small minority of people, those atheists that created trouble in 1962. And the Constitution does not say anything about a wall of separation between church and state. That was to prevent the establishment of a state church. Not to say that God had no role in public life.”
Hartmann pointed out that countries where people were the happiest, healthiest and equal, like Denmark, are less religious. Swain continued to insist, despite this evidence, that America is in decline because of “unbiblical and ungodly choices.” She said that secular humanists and atheists are leading the country down the wrong path and that Christianity is under siege.
Hartmann, a Christian himself, defended atheists, humanists and the wall of separation of church and state.
Swain said that she was not advocating a “theology” (presumably, theocracy), but thought that “We should be able to argue public policies with religious reasoning and scriptures.”
