    Is less narrow than the current hot buttons of abortion and marriage equality. For myself, the part of it that is most pernicious, because it has become the most difficult to counter, is the destruction of the wall of separation between church and state.

    Having been raised in a frequently persecuted faith and since become an unbeliever, state religion makes me very, very nervous. We have many millions in this country who are convinced that not only is it OK to have a state religion (theirs, conveniently enough), but that the country was intended to be that way from its founding.

    "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself."........ "The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little." (yeah, same guy.)

      ice-versa, its all chicken and egg.

      The only reason to oppose choice is religious (conception = humanity, interfering in 'God's design', etc).  Same with homophobic tantrums.  

      And bc they know this is true in the flinty little Hell-fires they have in place of hearts, then the 1st A must go.  Of course, the question then become 'which church'.  For which it warms the cockles of my Jeffersonian heart that atheists in Cali realized it was smarter to demand to be included in the nativity display than sue to prohibit it.  

      Down that path lies jibbering fundies throwing shite at each other. :)
