I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the WHITE republic for which it stands...

Rant & Reason posted an entry: Bishop Jackson offended by inclusiveness in Obama address

The majority of Americans are white and our founders expressed white European values, so we must be a white nation, right?

It's incredible how clarifying analogies can be. Anti-Secularists who are conveniently situated in the privileged category so often attempt to hide their bigotry and selfishness with majority claims and appeals to numbers. This is a Christian nation!! Aside from that being a complete fallacy, it's not how democracy works. You can talk until you're blue in the face, or just give them a quick analogy.

Now you just have to make them understand how one bigotry is analogous to another.
