I've asked it before and I'll ask it again. If the majority of Muslim's are violent terrorists who only live to kill Westerners then how did I manage to walk past a large, very active mosque, twice a day, five days a week for over a year? No car bomb needed when you could knock me down by opening the car door itself.

Here our greatest threat is Dominionist Christians - those who openly want to take power from the government and the media and establish a theocratic government.

Are they really that big of a threat? I've gotten the impression that while religion plays a bigger role in US politics than it does in Canadian politics, the Dominionist platform is still fairly out on the fringe. Are my impressions inaccurate?

The Republicans are courting the religious right and the Tea Party. Not all of them are outright dominionists, but many lean in that direction to some degree, and the more uneducated masses can be easily convinced that not only is this perfectly constitutional, it is the only way out of the terrible situation we're in economically and socially. I meet people like this everywhere, and they are scary in their righteous ignorance.

Enough people were convinced of this in 2010 that several Tea Party members became congressmen and governors. Perhaps with some of their antics, enough of the rest of us have woken up and will vote next time. We'll see.
