← The Myth of America’s Christian Heritage

But surely America IS founded on Christian priciples?

Just like the bible, it started with attempted genocide and repression of the native tribes (who's land is required) excused because they are considered as lesser beings in the eyes of a god in which they don't beleive and have heard never of.

Leviticus, instead of being an ancient story in a far off land, can be brought to America. Mitt has got to see the appeal in that .. bringing bible characters to the good ol' USofA. It's a bit like Disney buying the rights to Winnie the Pooh and then giving him an american accent ... except with far more sinister and ultimately disasterous consequences.
