@Skywalker2B: This is going to get off the topic of current events (i.e. the election and its aftermath) and this isn't in direct response to your post, but I think it may make for an interesting discussion. Hopefully this will be relevant enough to politics to justify being here instead of the religion thread. I think my religious beliefs inform my political views differently than yours.
I welcome the secularization of the West. The philosophy of Christianity is not to create Christian societies, impose Christian laws, or (Heaven forbid) wage Christian wars. That is the way of the world. Christ's Kingdom is not of this world. By that I don't mean that the Kingdom is "spiritual" or private, but that His Kingdom doesn't operate by the rules of the world. We are told to look after the sick, the lame, the outcast, to forgive, to believe in Him, and to spread the Gospel. That's how we are to follow our King and inaugurate the Kingdom.
It is also my opinion - and I know many Christians will disagree with me on this - but I think that politics is no place for a Christian to be. In the first place, the power that the position of political leadership gives is enough to corrupt the best of us and I would urge any Christian - or any person who seeks to live a good, moral life - to not get mixed in with politics. In the second place, as I said earlier, the politics of this world are one of the things that Christianity opposes. You can call a nation a "Christian nation" if you want, but that nation will not therefore be immune from the evils of worldly politics - greed, corruption, violence, oppression etc. The only difference is that those evils will now be committed in the name of Christ. Getting into politics, to me, seems like sleeping with the enemy. I put my head in my hands when Trump swore on the Bible during his inauguration. I wish all religious symbolism would be removed from civil ceremonies.
I also think that the American Constitution and other founding documents were based primarily on Enlightenment ideas - the separation of church and state, equality before the law, freedom of speech etc. Now, I'm not saying that Enlightenment ideas were not in some ways influenced by Christianity and that many Enlightenment thinkers were not Christians, but it was largely a secular movement. The original population of America was overwhelmingly Christian, but the principles of the Enlightenment could easily be implemented in a country without any Christians in the population at all.
So all of this puts me in an interesting position. I do believe that all will be right in the world only when Christ returns and so I do not put my faith in humanity or in politicians. That said, I will defend secular democracies because I think that of all the bad political systems in the world, they are the least bad by far. I don't seek a government that will lead us into utopia, but simply a government that will protect its citizens freedom and security.
Where sky and water meet,
Where the waves grow sweet,
Doubt not, Reepicheep,
To find all you seek,
There is the utter east.
