The G** word: Don Feder has a good article over at Frontpagemag.com on former Labor Secretary Robert Reich's "War" on evangelical Christians.
Feder makes an insightful point on the debate over what level of religious speech is insightful in the public square:
Liberals like Reich are engaged in monumental historical revisionism. The ex-Clintonista seems to be saying that regulations on abortion, a non-denominational prayer (or a moment of silent meditation) and limiting marriage to a man and a woman constitute state-sponsored religion. If so, America was a theocracy as recently as 1962.
Of course it wasn't, but to militant atheists and anti-religionists, mention of God anywhere other than the privacy of one's home is an anathema.
