    This is the ultimate goal of the Tea Party. To establish fundamentalist theocracy and abolish religious plurality. Conservatives’ idea of religious freedom is freedom for them to establish a fundamentalist monopoly.

    If that sounds farfetched, so did all the things the GOP is doing today sound farfetched ten years ago: Gutting women’s rights, voter rights, civil rights, labor rights, environmental & consumer protections, etc.

    The true driving force behind conservative politics today isn’t political, but fundamentalist. The GOP campaigns on economic issues, but their actions are mostly draconian religious fundamentalism.

    Yet anyone who draws attention to this is accused of “religious persecution.”

    It’s the fundamentalist version of Catch-22, only this ain’t fiction.

    If this was true, racial segregation would still be the norm in the Deep South.

    What an interesting precedent. So when a non-Xtian group grabs power and chooses to start actively persecuting Xtians, the Xtians will have no right to complain.

    Yet we know they will, as they complain most mightily even when they’re not being persecuted.
