The Government should aid the church. The First Amendment to the United States Constitution. Called the "Bill of Rights." Clearly states: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. It also states that the Government is to protect the rights of its people.
It should provide freedom, justice, and equality for all. Any persecuted religion should be protected.
Also the pledge of Allegiance:
I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America. And to the republic for which it stands, one nation, under God, indivisible with liberty and justice for all.
Pay attention to key words such as: under GOD, with LIBERTY and JUSTICE to ALL.
Let me be the first to say that no one is persecuting any Christian church in America. The vast majority of people in this nation are of one Christian denomination or the other and that includes almost everyone in a position of power. If there's persecution it's on the part of the church, demanding that its mythology be taught as fact in our public schools and trying to force its primitive morality into the law of the land. So no, there should be NO intermingling of church and state. Didn't we learn anything from the Dark Ages?
No, the government should not aid the persecuted Church, because the government should stay completely out of religious affairs. When the government is also the church, everyone is forced to be an atheist. The government cannot aid the persecuted church without attaching some strings. It would be better if the government left religion to itself and tended to governmental affairs.
The government should absolutely not assist the Church with its struggles. It s a fundamental founding of this government that the role of church and state remain separate, that people be allowed to follow whatever religion suits them best. For the government to step in and assist any Church demonstrates an obvious bias, a preference for one church over another. Given that the role of government is to stay away from religion, it is imperative that government stay out of religious matters.
