It’s bloggers like Joe Carter that shame me into wanting to publish better posts.  Today, the Evangelical Outpost posted Theocrats and Theophobes: Kevin Phillips and Carter’s Law of Political Rhetoric.  Here’s a telling quote, but go read up at Joe’s.

“Is theocracy in the United States,” asks Phillips, “(1) a legitimate fear, as some liberals argue; (2) a joke, given the nation’s rising secular population and moral laxity; (3) a worrisome bias of major GOP constituencies and pressure groups; or (4) all of the above? The last, I would argue.”
