BUSH IS SERIOUSLY UNDERMINING SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE

The most disturbing thing about the results of the election was not Iraq, weapons of mass destruction, terrorism, the possible raping of our national parks and forests for natural resources, the economic decline, the loss of jobs or the loss of dignity the United States once had in the eyes of the world. The most disturbing aspect is that the results indicate the proliferation of the religious Christian right -- the evangelical vote.

For a country that is supposedly in the practice of separation of church and state, a constitutional right, just as is the right to bear arms, we now have religious zealots swaying the vote, passing amendments in a group of states that blatantly discriminate against some minorities. These amendments are based on religious beliefs. This, in our own country, supposedly the land of the free. Is this what anti-liberalism is about? Is this the Republican agenda and doctrine? If it is, we are in deep, deep trouble as a free nation.
