Diversity sophism

To the editor:

Let us see what the Pew Research Center on Global religious diversity, released on April 14, has to say about the left's lies on religious diversity. The study found that "from a global perspective, the U.S. is not at all that religiously diverse." 95% of the U.S. population is either Christian [78%] or religiously unaffiliated, while all other religions combined account for less than 5% of Americans. As a Gallup poll found, 95% of all Americans who identify with a religion are Christians: Jews are 1.8%, Buddhists are1.2%, Muslims are .9%, Hindus are .6% and folk religions are .2%.

The Supreme Court ruled May 5 that a historical precedent to opening local legislative meetings with a prayer that was predominantly of a Christian nature was not coercive to those in attendance. Judge Kennedy, writing for the majority, noted the historical precedence of such prayers, pointing out that the U.S. House and Senate have official chaplains and a majority of the states have the practice of legislative prayer.

We remain a Judeo Christian country, as founded, no matter how many ways and nuances and times the multicultural left tries to throw diversity at the wall to see if it sticks. They should be celebrating that fact because Christian tolerance allows them to pollute our culture with impunity never having to consider the consequences.

In God We Trust,
