Headline of the day

This article is by Frank Schaeffer and he knows whereof he speaks:

Insider: "The Christian Right is Aiming to Destroy All Things Public"

I don't understand this; I really don't.

Here's one paragraph toward the end:

The price for the Religious Right’s wholesale idolatry of private everything was that Christ’s reputation was tied to a cynical union-busting political party owned by billionaires. It only remained for a Far Right Republican- appointed majority on the Supreme Court to rule in 2010 that unlimited corporate money could pour into political campaigns— anonymously—in a way that clearly favored corporate America and the superwealthy, who were now the only entities served by the Republican Party.

I really recommend that you read the whole article. It's excerpted from Frank Schaeffer's recent book entitled Sex, Mom, and God: How the Bible's Strange Take on Sex Led to Crazy Politics--And How I Learned to Love Women (and Jesus) Anyway. How's THAT for a title?
