Anti-theocracy hysteria

The leftist-atheist-evolutionist blogs are constantly complaining about how America is supposedly becoming a theocracy. Jerry Coyne writes Republicans insane; want to establish theocracy, and Richard Dawkins endorses a new book with Sean Faircloth discusses his new book Attack of the Theocrats.

Faircloth says that he was inspired to write the book because some people objected to Pres. Barack Obama giving a commencement address at Notre Dame, because of a minister who advocated requiring parental permission for a minor girl to get an abortion, and because many state legislatures open with a prayer. As his most horrifying example of a theocratic law, he complains that some states have religious exemptions that allow church child day-care centers to be less regulated than commercial ones.

Coyne complains that at a recent Iowa campaign event, Cain talked about "people of faith and strong faith", Perry about our "Judeo-Christian founding fathers", Bachmann saying that "The 10 Commandments were the foundation for our law", Santorum saying that "our civil laws have to comport with the higher law", and Gingrich speculating on how Congress might undo Roe v Wade.

Theocracy means "government of a state by immediate divine guidance or by officials who are regarded as divinely guided". I don't see any American politician who advocates theocracy. Eagle Forum is a strong support of our U.S. Constitution, and is firmly against any change to any other type of government. Those who think that we are becoming a theocracy are the deranged ones.
