I'm posting this because it's just more political mad cow disease. I'm annoyed more by slanted tone of this than the issue itself, which they sneakily put up for "discussion," and which I don't fear or believe will ever come to fruition.

I don't think you're crazy. The far right in Western politics is controlled using very much the same brainwashing techniques that you find in the Christian Church.
Most Christians are too stupid to realize that they've been completely and utterly brainwashed by both their political AND religious leaders.
It's appropriate that The Church refers to their congregation as a "flock" because they're all sheeple that just go along with the herd, blindly going where the person in charge directs them, and not knowing why.
PPP surveyed 316 Republican primary voters from February 20th to 22nd. The margin of error for
the survey is +/- 5.5%. This survey was conducted through automated telephone interviews and
interviews over the internet to voters who don’t have landline phones.

ps. I have very strong beliefs but the separation of church and state is detrimental to our country and it's politics.
How can separation of church and state be detrimental to our country when we have secular government by law?

And every one thinks I'm insane for suggesting a link between the christian religion and western politics!

I get it religion is a boogeyman to some...
But a theocracy is decades off, and will most likely never happen for a variety of reasons.
We can start with the constitution...
If I am going to worry about something, I would suggest the growing probability of us becoming a police state, that's much more likely than a theocracy.

Not at all,some of the original edicts were based in Chtistian values,I wouldn't want them shoved down anyone's throat.
I DID like the pledge and our national anthem and even so I still won't stop other faiths from existing as they should choose but the traditional American values are Christian based and HAVE shaped who we are by our humanity and charitable nature.
Money has of course sullied a great deal here.
AND progrssive propaganda paints a false picture of the nominal Christian as well.
