There’s a book out titled 100 Bible Verses That Made America. It’s written by Robert J. Morgan who is a pastor in Tennessee. The book’s aim is to show the verses that were vital to the development of the United States.
My question is What are the Bible verses destroying the secular state we find in the US Constitution? And what I mean by that what are the bits of the Good Book that undercut the separation of church and state, women’s rights, and true religious freedom? I asked that question to a few friends who are fighting the good fight against Christian nationalism (fascism?)

Here are the Bible verses:
Whoever spares the rod hates their children, but the one who loves their children is careful to discipline them.
2 John 10:11
If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not take them into your house or welcome them. 11 Anyone who welcomes them shares in their wicked work.
Leviticus 24: 19-20
Anyone who injures their neighbor is to be injured in the same manner: fracture for fracture, eye for eye, tooth for tooth. The one who has inflicted the injury must suffer the same injury.
And you shall not walk in the customs of the nation that I am driving out before you, for they did all these things, and therefore I detested them.
“Anyone who loves their father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; anyone who loves their son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.
Romans 1: 26-27
Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.
Slaves, obey your masters in all things. Do not obey just when they are watching you, to gain their favor, but serve them honestly, because you respect the Lord.
