*Democracy and Constitutional rights would become secondary to theological dictates

 

Those who are advocates of such a theocracy are no longer waiting in the shadows for their opportunity to take control; they are overtly trumpeting their message across America as their main platform for governing this country. This rapidly growing power of the radical fundamentalist movement cannot be ignored. The GOP could easily retain control of the House and also become the majority in the Senate in 2012; and who says that Barack Obama is assured of winning reelection?

 

Can we imagine what this country and this society would be like if these right wing religious zealots took total control of this government and established their own version of theocracy? It would be America's worst nightmare, a living hell on earth in which people would find the oppression and suppression of their views and actions to be intolerable. That must never be allowed to happen for it would tear this nation apart.
