A Resting Place

The Christians are coming!

As brave Paul Revere of old, America's left is sounding the alarm: "The Christians are coming!" The rampant fear of Christian influence is astounding, as can be seen by crazy websites like Jesusland and Theocracy Watch, and the general overall response to this year's election by the left. It's ridiculous enough that these people are afraid of simple moral values (you know, like the ones that make them think it might just be wrong to kill unborn babies), but add to that the fact that there are true religious fascists trying to dominate the world (namely, the terrorists we are fighting overseas), and you have an entire group of people in America that has plunged itself into delusion and lunacy. I'll let Christopher Hitchens, the atheist (did you get that? atheist.) sum this up for me:

So here is what I want to say on the absolutely crucial matter of secularism. Only one faction in American politics has found itself able to make excuses for the kind of religious fanaticism that immediately menaces us in the here and now. And that faction, I am sorry and furious to say, is the left. From the first day of the immolation of the World Trade Center, right down to the present moment, a gallery of pseudointellectuals has been willing to represent the worst face of Islam as the voice of the oppressed. How can these people bear to reread their own propaganda? Suicide murderers in Palestine—disowned and denounced by the new leader of the PLO—described as the victims of "despair." The forces of al-Qaida and the Taliban represented as misguided spokespeople for antiglobalization. The blood-maddened thugs in Iraq, who would rather bring down the roof on a suffering people than allow them to vote, pictured prettily as "insurgents" or even, by Michael Moore, as the moral equivalent of our Founding Fathers. If this is liberal secularism, I'll take a modest, God-fearing, deer-hunting Baptist from Kentucky every time, as long as he didn't want to impose his principles on me (which our Constitution forbids him to do).
