The Black Robe Regiment is a resource and networking entity where church leaders and laypeople can network and educate themselves as to our biblical responsibility to stand up for our Lord and Savior and to protect the freedoms and liberties granted to a moral people in the divinely inspired US Constitution. The Regiment had its historical beginnings during the Revolutionary War when Pastors from across the colonies arose and lead their congregations into the battle for freedom. . . .Ah, the New Eden of the American suburbs.
These folks who now inhabited this New Jerusalem (this New Eden that Christopher Columbus saw), were living out what they saw as a life and a country that was fashioned entirely by their Creator. The Constitution (Part 1–the Declaration of Independence, and part 2), was and is a covenant between the people of America and their Heavenly Father. It was written for a Christian people….who are fully able to internally govern themselves. Thus, the meaning of a Republic that was inspired by God’s Word and spells out the mission of God’s children and Christ’s ambassadors on Earth.
Dreher got dragged into this after tweeting about lynching and encountering "Christians" who deny that such things ever happened in America. Dreher is an Orthodox Christian and he worries about such beliefs on theological grounds as well as historical; to Catholics and Orthodox (as Pope Benedict said on several occasions) putting the nation on par with God is idolatry. But for many Southern Baptists in particular it seems that worshiping America is an essential part of their faith.
How such people and I could ever agree on the content of an American history course escapes me.
