    In recent years when I’m at my most pessimistic I’ve felt Christian evangelism was on the march. They’ve been very successful by supplanting fiscal conservatives as the base of the republican party. But maybe their apparent vigor is a mere spasm, a death rattle. I can dream, right?

    Yep Cap: we all can dream. I see a lot of religious BS everywhere I look. They are always claiming discrimination however, they are everywhere preaching that same old shit. I too see a death rattle… dream a little dream.

    We here in the UK are about to witness another example of our domestic religeous parasites and the freeloaders of German/Greek/Russian descent spend a fortune on a wedding in a country where we have tens of thousands of children living below the poverty level. DIEU ET MON DROIT I dream too John and Cap’n 0

    Things have changed (West Coast – US) quite a bit. I can state my opinion, atheistic of course, and instead of glares and denouncements, I now get sighs and “whatever”s. It really is a huge leap. Their tolerance and our numbers are increasing all of the time.

    Here in the small town Mid-West, it hasn’t gotten much better. Of course being in TV Evangelist heaven (outside Akron, OH – former home of the right Rev. Rex Humbard and the Church of Tomorrow, and a number of his fellows). Of course being 7 miles north of the Klan capital of Ohio doesn’t help a whole lot. A select few of my customers know my beliefs, but if they should become too public, my family oriented business would find itself in the toilet. However, all that being said, yes, I do see a break coming. Young people, even here so near to the buckle of the Bible belt, are beginning to think for themselves, and someday I even hope to see religious education branded as the form of child abuse that it is.

    I’m optimistic, but then I though Ronald Reagan was the last gasp of the republitards. Religion seems to have more lives than vampires, Jason, and zombies. On the bright side there are 100s or 1,000s of gods on the scrap heaps of culture.
