When the Texas Republican Party adopted its platform recently, party leaders left no question as to the importance it placed on religion. The platform calls America a "Christian nation, founded on Judeo-Christian principles," and that has drawn a frustrated reaction from Jewish groups that consider the language exclusionary. Another portion of the platform has stirred additional concerns. "We pledge to exert our influence toward a return to the original intent of the 1st Amendment and dispel the myth of the separation between church and state," the document reads.If they hate America as it was originally conceived so much, why don't they just go form their own country somewhere else?
