  •  No, Obama is a Christian, not a theocrat. (0+ / 0-)

    A theocrat is someone who wants to place a religious system in place of the current governing system. For example, the Taliban want government based on their precepts of belief.
    Theocracy is not democracy. This contry has represetational democracy with lots of nice checks and balances against the tyranny of the majority - thus helping to prevent your kids from working in that factory.
    A Theocracy could decide for those kids to work in that factory too only the breakroom would have religious books and compulsory prayers and so forth.

    I like Eugene Peterson's The Message. I doubt a Theocrat would allow me to read it.

    It's all a matter of faith but I could be wrong.
