This is Significant
4 October 2019 | by columbialuverSee all my reviews

Am I surprised? Not at all... But I am glad that the truth is documented and shared publicly.

The seperation of Church & State in the United States is a lie & this is proof of it.

Christianity is the unspoken socially upheld view of any "upright elite" citizen in the United States. Not necessarily right, but it's there. And, since Christianity is a deep-seated lifestyle that affects every part of a person's life, It would make the handling of politics separately difficult for a Christian individual or group of individuals. That a spiritual guidance "Club" for the leaders of the United States exists is not surprising at all.

I think many people will find no problem with this. That's a bit of a problem itself, but it is innate that leaders would have strong views that motivate how they govern. I think America has to decide how they want to do this differently moving forward if it is no longer working for America & how to separate Religion from Politics.
