A disturbing trend has emerged in recent decades within the Christian community. That trend is an apparent desire to transform our government into a theocracy. Some say this is a reaction to secular attacks, which leave Christians feeling persecuted and marginalized. To some extent, I can sympathize with this feeling as I witness secularists’ efforts to exclude all vestiges of religion from the public square. But the trend toward theocracy is alarming and short-sighted, not to mention unconstitutional.
