more theocrats

Had an interesting conversation today touching on the dangers of theocracy, and then ran across this from Paul Krugman in today's Times. Some of the most compelling current writing on the dangers of the so-called Christian Right comes from Chris Hedges, whose most recent work, American Fascists, recounts the frightening tale of the the rise and power of the Falwells and Robertsons and the next wave. One might surmise that the message is "be afraid, be very afraid." I'd prefer to think otherwise: be organized, be very organized.
Speaking of which, the Network of Spiritual Progressives in Northern Virginia is meeting at Clarendon this Sunday evening at 7:00. Hope to see you there.
