A word from the other side: Christianity with Church/State sep. is evil

The head of Faith2Action and the author of "The Criminalization of Christianity" has written a column that exemplifies the opposition to the humanist positions quite well.  It begins:
The "separation of church and state." I could be reading from the constitution of the former Soviet Union, a decision by Ruth Bader Ginsburg or a fundraising letter from the ACLU. But instead, I'm repeating a philosophy of "Christian" groups like Discernment Ministries and their website, "Herescope."

and continues to the thesis of the unacceptability of non-crusading Christianity:
In the 1950s, when Darwinism was allowed into the school system, these "Christians" sang their hymns and did nothing. When the Supreme Court ripped out the right to pray in schools in 1962, they sang their hymns and did nothing. In 1973, when the Supreme Court ordered the recognition of "freedom" to kill innocent children, they sang their hymns and did nothing. Apparently "Onward Christian Soldiers" wasn't on the song list.
After citing several examples of Christians deferring to secularism (the title of this post is not an exaggeration, there is the usual reference to the Nazis), the piece concludes:
To those who still believe that we should stay out of the cultural war, I have a question: How is that working out for you?
We now have two generations who are lost in the lies of humanism, evolution and homosexuality, facilitated into fornication and abortion, trapped in pornography and devastated by divorce. Congratulations.

Humanists need to read this entire article because it shows what we are facing:  hang-ups and prejudices masquerading as righteousness, a sense of victimization when things only go 95% your way, and a complete reliance on revealed truth (it's up to reality to change to meet that truth, not the other way around).
