Perry’s Dichotomy

Either faith in Christ can cleanse all people of their sin, or none, but not some… The truth of Christ’s death, resurrection and power over sin is absolute.

~ Rick Perry (1950-03-04 age:67) On My Honor: Why the American Values of the Boy Scouts Are Worth Fighting for page 180

Perry is a throwback to the 1600s when Catholics and Protestants tried to force each other to accept their dogma. The founding fathers learned the lesson from the endless religious wars in Europe and sought to avoid strife in America using the constitutional separation of church and state. Perry is so sure he is right he wants to toss that wisdom out and impose his own primitive form of Christianity on the whole country using force of law.
