From Rep. John Fleming (R-LA) at the Republican Women of Bossier:

We are either going to go down the socialist road and become like western Europe and create, I guess really a godless society, an atheist society. Or we're going to continue down the other pathway where we believe in freedom of speech, individual liberties and that we remain a Christian nation.

Umm – psst, John – you don’t need to sacrifice freedom of speech and individual liberties to become a secular nation. Proof of this is evident in the fact that the US is not a Christian nation, no matter how many Christians live there, but is, in fact, a secular nation. Just so you know.
