“Kellyanne Conway on Monday condemned the trend of anti-religiosity in America, just days after a mass shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue left 11 people dead and several wounded.
`The anti-religiosity in this country, that it is somehow in vogue and funny to make fun of anybody of faith, to constantly be making fun of people who express religion, the late-night comedians, the unfunny people on TV shows, it`s always anti-religious,` Conway said on `Fox & Friends.`
She later argued that faith can bring Americans together and said this isn`t the time to be `driving God out of the public square.`”
Conway would be well-advised to consult a dictionary before spouting off on Fox News. Most folks, people of faith and atheists, are anti-religiosity. The word “religiosity” has a bad connotation, denoting a person who is excessively, obtrusively, or sentimentally religious.
However, it`s true that there is an anti-evangelical trend in America, in reaction to white evangelicals who have made a mockery of Christianity by embracing a degenerate who is a hell of a lot more similar to the anti-Christ than Jesus Christ.
I`m more liberal than conservative but I don`t make fun of people of faith who proclaim and defend the universal concepts of the brotherhood of man, and respect for individuals regardless of their ethnicity, religion, or social class.
I do make fun of white evangelicals who claim to believe in the teachings of Jesus Christ while worshipping a buffoon who is the antithesis of Christianity.
Faith in our democracy and in the Constitution can bring Americans of all faiths and no faith together, and the deity of your choice can best be worshipped in your home or in a place of worship, not in the public square.
