Religious Values Defeat American Values

Bush won, consummating the victory of religious values over American values.

Separation of church and state was one of the original and foundational American values second in importance only to the right of free speech. Both will be under attack in the next four years. Electing Bush to a second term is a nail in America's coffin.

The religion virus has spread so far and wide in America that droves of people voted for their religious persuasion against their own economic interests. Average Americans voted to give tax breaks to billionaires and tax dollars for faith-based initiatives.

Now, this clown in the white house will be convinced he has a mandate from god to further tear down the wall between church and state.

The last time religion ruled, it was called the dark ages. America, get ready for a modern dark age. Get ready to see Roe-v-Wade overturned. Get ready to see a government assault on pornography and unmarried sex. Get ready to pay taxes for faith-based government. Get ready to see a government-backed christian assault on everything that christians hate, like sex and free speech. Get ready to see government-sanctioned police brutality and violations of civil liberties. Get ready for religious hysteria.

There is a possible silver lining - the president's god squad might get so fanatical in the next 4 years that it becomes painfully obvious we need a constitutional amendment separating government from even the slightest hint of religion.

Stumbled randomly onto your blog just after writing a similar post about this topic on my blog. This is just to let you know that you're not alone out there, although it can sometimes feel that way.

And by the way, you sound resigned to all these things happening. I AM NOT READY TO ACCEPT DEFEAT and I hope you won't give up either. We need to focus on limiting the damage Bush & the Dick can do in four years, and preparing to drive the snakes out in 2008. Yes, it threw me that they did so well, but I think there are a lot of people out there who can still be brough to their senses. Even Christians. I am a Christian who believes strongly in separation of church and state, for the protection of both. I DO NOT see gay marriage as a threat to my faith in any way, and I believe in the right to choose abortion. So there.

Well put. For the record, I'd like to say that I will fight for your right to practice your religion (outside of government) and for your right to free speech and, in general, your right to do anything you please as long as you don't violate anyone else's rights. This is the true nature of American values.

We are in complete agreement about America, regardless of any other differences. And you're right. That's the whole point of this country.
