The Kentucky Legislature Should Not Add "In the year of our Lord" to its Resolutions
The Kentucky legislature quietly voted to add "in the year of our Lord" to all their resolutions.
I think this is a bad idea.
Don't get me wrong - I am a church elder.
The state is not like any other institution. It should not be run "like a business" or "like your household" or "like a church." Those are all private institutions, which can have their own private rules. But the government has a mission to serve everyone, not just the majority.
I wish we had more government officials who understood that the government serves all the people, not just the people like them. The state has to be religiously neutral for the good of the church, as well as to do justice to all the citizens who are not Christian.
