Theocracy

 

I hope like hell that Bush isn't going to screw this up...

Catching up with the world of bloggers, I read on Glenn Reynolds' site that Islam may end up becoming the constitutional state religion of Iraq. Are the diplomats working that table fuckin' nuts? A lot of blood has been spilled in trying to bring democracy and freedom to the Iraqis and we might give it all away in this huge and unforgivable concession.

This is akin to George I walking away in 1991. This is all about finishing the job.

Call the state department. 202-647-4000. Tell 'em not no but hell no.

Write Secretary Rice.

Write your senator.

Write/call the White House.

Well, of course it will. IF there is to be a state religion at all, what would you expect it to be?

Of course, again, the problem isn't really that it would be ISLAM as much as the fact that it would be a STATE RELIGION as written in a constitution.

Exactly. Setting a state religion at all begins an exclusionary process and forces faith down the throats of unbelievers, which is absolutely polar to the notion of faith in the first place.
