Comment: You're correct about the 150 years

You're correct about the 150 years

It seems the Mass Bay Colony was reigned in in 1692, so 64 years. Althugh the religiosity of this society carried through all the way to the Revolution, which began in Mass. Bay Colony towns. You can read about it here:

I guess the appreciation of the Fundamental Orders is a personal thing. But have a read of them and tell me they are not a wonderfully brief, clear and acccountable blueprint for a free society of individuals with virtually no executive.

Your statements that the US Constitution was based more on the Iroquis one than, say, Magna Carta, the Constitution of the Dutch Republic or the Bill of Rights 1688, and that America is more religious now than in its earlier history, seem to be based on your anti-Christian sentiment, not on the facts. In 1650, it would have been impossible for anyone to claim that England's N. American colonies were not Christian societies. Around half the population of them was not only Christian but in fact based their entire life and culture around Christian principals. Today the Chief executive states openly that it is not a Christian nation, and Christianity is being pushed out of all public spaces.

With the move away from true Christian values, begins the descent into tyranny.

Obedience to God is resistance to tyrants.
