Christian totalitarians seek to transform America’s secular democracy into a tyrannical theocracy. From Oklahoma to North Carolina, from Kansas to Kentucky, state legislatures have been turned into theocratic test tubes, and now we helplessly watch Frankenstein’s monster hatch.
Over the course of the past three decades the Christian Right has moved from the fringes of the Republican Party to become the main strain of the Republican Party. If “moderate” Republicans choose against adopting the cultural positions of America’s rabid theocrats, they’re inevitably frog marched and purged from the party, vis-à-vis House Majority Leader Eric Cantor.
As the GOP continues its gravitational pull toward the far right, and with redistricting and midterm electoral dynamics favoring a GOP win in 2014, America stands on the precipice of even greater gains by Christian extremists.
