4th of July Reminder

The Religious Right is a political group more so than anything else. It isn't concerned about doctrine: it is concerned about implementing doctrine into law. All other interpretations are both enemies of God & enemies of the state. It doesn't matter if it is in the US or Iran or Afghanistan or Northern Ireland: Dominionism kills our relationship with God, the relationship with our fellow man, & our relationship to liberty. It replaces the Sword of the Spirit with the Sword of Caesar. The Religious Right is a reminder as to why we have the 1st Amendment --- people can't resist forcing their religious interpretations onto others if others won't willingly acquiesce.

Good reminder. I just started reading Jimmy Carter's "Our Endangered Values." He addesses this issue quite well.
