THEOCRACY? NO, NO, NO!


This scene came from a time (The Spanish Inquisition) when religion (via a theocracy) wielded real power over the State. Unless you want such scenes to be repeated, perhaps involving you as a victim, democracies must fight to keep all religion out of politics.

Theocracy is already pulling strings in supposedly secular nations as is evidenced by the 'religious' trio of Bush, Blair and Howard and their continuing brutal war-mongering in mainly Muslim areas of the world where Muslim theocracy is a potent force already.

Imagine if you can what would happen if Judeo/Christian religious fundamentalists managed to gain complete control of Western Governments!

KAAAABOOOOOM!!!!!

Secularism MUST Supersede Sectarian Superstition!

Daniel, I hate to say it but Christian fundies already have control of the U.S. government...and we are fighting like hell to loosen their grip!

I hope you will join the Peace Train blogswarm on Wednesday as well! Details on my blog and at The Peace Train!

Daniel said...

I guess the fundies in control are not yet the ones praying for George to nuke Iran so they can go to heaven without dying, Bluegrrrrl.

Don't know what to say about the fundies...Bush is the theocrat-in-chief...don't know what they're all praying for but it sure isn't peace...

verification: nly-fukm ; ) really

Everything in time tends to move in a circular motion, and our time here in the US may be getting there after the fiasco the last 5 yrs.

We can only hope more people wake up and see the fallacy of the thinking that runs this nation! ; (

Hey, Coffee, great to hear from you! What 'thinking' I ask?

betmo said...

every empire falls. we have had a 230+ year run- and we are still fairly young. our democracy worked because people believed in it. this admin has shaken that belief to the very core because of their blatant disregard for the tenets of THEIR religion and their blatant disregard for the letter of the law. there is no accountability in the western world these days. america, especially, is being run by MEN with no one to stop them. the future of our democratic republic does not look good. i am not advocating not fighting but i do think folks would be wise to prepare for the worst- and become much more self sufficient.

I think that Margaret Atwood has completely covered this topic. The Handmaid's Tale - One of the most chilling books I ever read.

Daniel said...

Kvatch, I agree. That's why I've listed the book in my profile!

Fleming said...

Amen!

Sorry, I mean . . . hear hear!

Who would've thought science would finally catch up with religion:

Well done to the British Museum.

I tried the link, Pete, but it was a no-show! Thanks for calling.

Hey Daniel,

It's true the link doesn't click. You just need to copy and paste into a new window.
