A Return to Secularism
I've come across two very interesting pieces today, which are worth reading. The first, by Gus Van Horn: Dump the Religious Right
. As usual, Gus delivers an insightful and intelligent discussion of the religious right, especially in relation to their contradictory stands on "states rights". If you haven't read his blog yet, I strongly urge you to do so.
The second is an op-ed in today's New York Times by former Sen. John C. Danforth: In the Name of Politics
. This piece isn't perfect, but it is one of the better calls I've seen from someone in the "mainstream" to take control of the Republican party back
from the religious right.
