Theocratic Fusion has Come

The front page of today's Dallas Morning News has a story about "Values lobbyists have White House's ear" in which Richard Land, chief lobbyist for the Southern Baptist Convention, features prominently.

There's not much in the article that is new to anyone who has observed the activities of Richard Land and the other religious right lobbyists that were mentioned. Most Baptists, however, have not paid attention to what the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the SBC has been doing since Land and the Fundamentalists took charge. The article should make it obvious that they have been working to destroy separation of church and state.

That their mission is nearly accomplished is apparent from a quote from Lou Sheldon who said, the "fusion of religion and morality and public policy has now come about."

So, in Iraq, separation of Church and State is a good thing, but in America, Church and State fusion is the new black.

Sophistry is so much easier when you don't have to worry about consistency.
