    but I shan't hold my breath waiting for more.

    •  best to not call it courageous. It's just stating (3+ / 0-)

      the obvious.  The idea that separating church and state is 'courageous' means that the theopaths have actually gained a foothold in creating a theocracy here--and they haven't.  Despite the vocal 30% or so who support them, they're the reasons the GOP lost the election, and if they keep it up the GOP will keep losing elections.

      Not 'courageous' at all.  Just a statement of obvious constitutional principles.

      •  Yes, it's obvious, but (1+ / 0-)

        as regards religion and the separation, it does indeed take courage (and shouldn't) to state it.  Also, the separation is more apparent than real sadly.

        That many stupid statements proceeded from childish religiosity or extreme religious beliefs does not make religion the cause of the GOP electoral failures.  It was stupidity.  Most people don't care about another's beliefs allowing the vocal 30% (you claim) to wag the dog so long as there doesn't follow stupidity or outrageous proclamations.

        By the way, I like and will borrow "theopath."  My analogue is "religiot."
