On June 14, 2002 The Houston Chronicle featured the Editorial "Church and Hate" discussing "religious bigotry... At its state convention in Dallas, the Republican Party of Texas on Saturday adopted a platform that falsely declares the United States to be a 'Christian nation,' when the United States was the first to eschew an official church and to guarantee freedom of creed and conscience. The platform also retains language that commits the party to work 'to dispel the myth of separation of church and state.'"
