The God Racket, From DeMille to DeLay

"[...] Culture is often a more reliable prophecy than religion of where the country is going, and our culture has been screaming its theocratic inclinations for months now."

"At a time when government, culture, science, medicine and the rule of law are all under threat from an emboldened religious minority out to remake America according to its dogma [...] it's clear that one principle [...] has remained inviolate no matter what the courts have to say: American moguls, snake-oil salesmen and politicians looking to score riches or power will stop at little if they feel it is in their interests to exploit God to achieve those ends."

Comments:
It is pretty scary what is happening lately in the States. The Chiavo case is very significant how much is capable a politician to bend just to keep in power (=votes). As long justice is not contaminated there is some hope things will come back to a more rational place sooner or later. The earlier this kind of thinks affects these bible people's economy the better. (Recall that famous slogan "It's money, idiot!", the largest of the truths). Here we have more or less the same but on the other side of the political spectrum. Every day the progres wake up with a new discovery. They pretend to redefine everything from history to language, not to talk about frontiers... one of these days they will just reinvent the wheel (a progre wheel, of course).
It is the impowerment of the stupids.
