They would agree that any movement to make this a Christian nation and enshrining that viewpoint in law and culture is working against the constitution and the clear intent of the framers.

If the 15% defend their vote as a block it could be enough, when adding most other people who don't want to be told what their morality must consist of, to keep a permanent voting block against theocracy in place. Also non-belief is currently the fastest growing 'religious' group in the nation. And has been for going on a decade.
