Please, please folks: Get over yourselves. American theocracy is not going to happen. Ever. It’s a term of no content and mostly political implication. And it’s used by everyone, not just the fear-mongering Left. Please, an Obama theocracy?
I implore you: Let this word fall into exclusively seminarian usage. It’s not going to be Barack Obama’s secret agenda, and it’s not going to be the final accomplishment of a militant religious right. Theocracy never has and never will happen.
