No, I doubt it. Under the current system, people almost never elect clerics to be their congressmen.

No. Though an overwhelming majority of Americans are Christians, I believe most of them (me included) still believe in the ideal of separating church and state.

That's why I said IF we were! I know were a republic. But a democracy is majority rule.

's name in vain ("Oh my God!"), not give up 10% of their income to the Church, marry anyone who isn't a Christian, etc. etc. etc.

The Christians who would accept such a state are the crazies you see on TV.

Quick note here, regarding shellfish and multifabric clothes. That's part of the law of Moses, which Christ fulfilled. Which means it is not needed to be practiced.
