Some conservatives are worried that the liberal Left and some upcoming Texas state bills may try "to ban Christianity in Texas."

Erick Erickson, a conservative blogger and radio host, writes in The Resurgent, that some half a dozen bills will ban Christianity "in all but name."

 

This continues a long line of thought first advocated by the Obama Administration, which sought to restrict the 'free exercise' clause of the First Amendment to a 'freedom of worship' standard. In other words, be a Christian in church on Sunday, but nowhere else," he says.

 

"Christianity is not a religion of the church pew, but of the town square. Texas progressives are trying to ban it from anywhere outside the church," he added in his column.
