Theocracy by Pareto Principle

Joseph M. Juran formulated the widely accepted management principle, inspired by the work of economist Vilfredo Pareto, that concludes that 80% of the results come from 20% of the causes.

Al Mohler, President of Southern Seminary, applies the principle to the theocratic agenda of the Religious Right. He says that conservative Christians are only interested in controlling about 20% of the U.S. government.

Thanks to Bruce Gourley at the Mainstream Baptists group weblog for calling attention to Mohler's declaration of intentions. He writes:

For Mohler to try and justify conservative Christians imposing their will upon the nation as a whole betrays his feigned indignation against theocracy. And that Mohler is only concerned with his own view of religion and morality ... and the granting of rights and privileges to those who share his particular religious/moral convictions ... demonstrates that he has lost his Baptist moorings.
