- Obvious reason one: Commies believed that too.
Nazis imply having at least once believed it by the dévise Arbeit macht frei.

I believe the only way to give back Christian freedoms is ... giving back Christian freedoms. Just as much as the obvious way to give back Christian order to society is forbidding things Christian societies forbid, the only way to giving back Christian freedoms is allowing things Christian societies allow. Not two generations from now, in a hypothetical future when progress or pedagogy has given people a supposedly better take on how to handle Christian freedoms. But right now. Possibly at same time as taking away non-Christian freedoms. Possibly even before.
A thirteen year old girl forbidden to abort when Roe vs Wade is overturned (as it should be) must be allowed then or already have been allowed to marry the child's father and quit school. It is no use at all waiting till a time when thirteen year old girls do not prefer watching Pocahontas to reading Karl Marx. That time has never been through the two thousand or three thousand or more years while thirteen year old girls have been allowed to be mothers and wives and will never ever come.
