Daly: Tony, as we look at the mandate in the Bible to vote there is so much there and the Founding Fathers again were brilliant in understanding God’s design for things and the Scripture is pretty clear and really the Founding Fathers in creating a Republic based it on their biblical understanding of God’s ordination of government, didn’t they?
Evans: Absolutely, they went right to Exodus 18, how Israel was organized as a representative government, and used that as a pattern for the government of the United States. The principles and the freedom which dominates the uniqueness of the United States is drawn right from Scripture, in fact freedom started with God in the Garden, ‘from every tree of the Garden you may freely eat,’ there was broad freedom, limited regulations and dire consequences, that’s how government is supposed to work, so whenever government gets too big it gets unbiblical.

Not only do you fail history you fail your own Bible.

Wait, a mandate to vote... in the bible?
Actually, maybe that's not far-fetched since most Christians seem to think they get to vote on which of the passages in the bible to follow. That's why they focus on the homosexuality thing but ignore the "love thy neighbor" and "give your money to the poor" things.

Israel was organized as a representative government
OMG, I almost broke my arm falling off the chair because I was laughing so hard.
And just why was Jesus crucified? Think about it.
Btw, since you're pushing government by representation and democratic election, you must agree with what those elected representatives decide on, like abortion, gay marriage ...

Ooh, ooh, tell me again how Jefferson and Paine "were brilliant in understanding God’s design for things."

This is so stupid that it almost looks like a parody of Dominionist politics.
Here's a nice response, taking a quote from a few days back on this site. It's out of context, but these guys obviously don't care if their material is out of context. Does this sound like America?
In God's Courtroom there is no right against self-incrimination. There is no protection of presumed innocence. There is no right to present an affirmative defense. There is no legal right to object to the Judge's findings and rulings. There can be no motion to have the Judge recuse Himself from the case. In fact, in God's Courtroom there are no trials. There are only days of sentencing.

Fundies Make Me Sick
None of this is proven. You're just rewriting history to fit your religious views.
