Smearing Christian Judges

Paul Gaston has written a great piece that makes a great point: the right-wing theocrats aren't smearing "secular humanists" - they are actually smearing other Christians.

"What these self-avowed Christians do not acknowledge -- and what the American public seems little aware of -- is that the war they are waging is actually against other people calling themselves Christians. To simplify: Right-wing and fundamentalist Christians are really at war with left-wing and mainstream Christians. It is a battle over both the meaning and practice of Christianity as well as over the definition and destiny of the republic. Secular humanism is a bogeyman, a smoke screen obscuring the right-wing Christians' struggle for supremacy."

Go ye and read.
