As Fundamentalists Fume, Remember America’s First Faith-Based Initiative
The current symbolic aim of America’s Christian fundamentalists is to declare Islam and Muslims the enemy of America to be defeated. The current fundamentalist Christian rallying cry is “no mosques in America!” If the fundamentalists succeed, those who are members of the right religion will get to keep on building their houses of worship in America, while those who are members of the wrong religion will have their houses of worship banned.
There’s a word for that: theocracy.
Theocracy in America has been tried before. Witchcraft was a felony. Do you recall how it turned out?
Stop the panic. Halt the rush to theocracy. Let’s not go there again.
