21/3 Theocrats attack TYT Fights back

When Sean Faircloth wrote Attack of the Theocrats:who religion harms us all, highlighting his 10 point vision for a secular America. he was talking about the kind of subversive opinion uttered by Dennis Terry in his introduction of Rick Santorum.
This movement act like it already controls the Nation of USA. If you understand that America is a secular nation you don't need to be reminded that the constitution says
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."
or that the Article 11 of the Treaty of Tripoli authored by Joel Barlow 1976, and read before congress and endorsed unanimously by the congress before sign by John Adams.
"As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion; as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion, or tranquility, of Mussulmen; and, as the said States never entered into any war, or act of hostility against any Mahometan nation, it is declared by the parties, that no pretext arising from religious opinions, shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries."
The first amendment prevents government from acquiescing to the Christian Rights demands, does not stop criticism of ludicrous, even seditious statements from the pulpit, whether that criticism comes from "liberal" media or private citizens acting in concert to peaceably protest, ridicule, lampoon and demand rejection hateful misogynistic, racist and jingoistic policies and rhetoric.

Cenk's comment on Christian "taliban" is on the money. Doubling down on dogma and theocratic does little for Saudi Arabia and other countries that are effectively theocracies. Left To right politician America will become a theocracy if people of reason stand by and let it happen. Meanwhile on Saturday 24, The Reason Rally  the largest secular event ever will celerate reason and send a message to politicians that the bullshit of religious dogma in poliicts will not be tolerated much longer.
