Our Nation’s Values Are Not Built on a Judeo-Christian Foundation

Have you ever heard a conservative claim that our civilization is based on Judeo-Christian values? Or that the Ten Commandments forms the basis for our system of law?

Those people are liars. And this video by Stephen Woodford does an excellent job explaining why.

The ideas of freedom of speech, liberty for all, democracy, and equality are suppressed, not celebrated, in the Bible and by those who followed it before our nation was founded.

As Woodford says, “Western civilization did not emerge from Judeo-Christian values. It emerged despite them.”

Our foundations can be traced back to ancient Athens far more than anything in the Bible.
