Washington Times: “The Texas Republican Party plank says, ‘Christian Nation — The Republican Party of Texas affirms that the United States of America is a Christian nation, and the public acknowledgment of God is undeniable in our history. Our nation was founded on fundamental Judeo-Christian principles based on the Holy Bible. The party affirms freedom of religion, and rejects efforts of courts and secular activists who seek to remove and deny such a rich heritage from our public lives.’”

National GOP refuses to criticize the plank, adopted June 4; Texas Republicans note they’ve been saying much the same thing for the last 10 years, a period during which they gained 900 offices, including all 29 state-wide positions. So much for separation of church and state.
