I see many “conservatives” on free republic that have no problem with using federal, state, or local government force to impose their religious world view on others. That is human nature though, if you think you have the truth then that is what should be taught.
When I was in officer candidate school I had two good buddies that when we had down time we would discuss many issues. The one guy was an atheist and the other a home-schooled inerrant bible believing christian.
We were talking about government and what the best form of government is. My christian buddy stated that theocracy is the best form. My athiest friend and myself were taken aback by that. He explained his reasoning that if there is a god that created us that we should lived our lives according to his principles.
I had to say that his logic was accurate. Both my athiest buddy and I agreed that it would be the best form of government. I then brought up the fact of how would you know that your leaders were actually talking to god. My christian friend agreed that this is the problem. Unless god starting talking from a burning bush or something like that again you couldn't know for sure if your leader was talking to god or just insane. We all had a good laugh at that.
Hindus and Muslims do not see the Creator as a “Father.”
Such an intimate and relational view of God emerges only through Judeo-Christian tradition.
