    I always thought a silent majority had two requirements.

    1. To actually be a majority
    2. To be silent.


    The religious right comes nowhere NEAR fitting either of these categories. They are an extremely loud minority.

    I think that both nationally and globally, organized religion is dying a slow death (don't worry, it'll definitely outlive all of us), and the rise in extremism we see today is merely a bunch of small-scale backlashes against religion's slow, inevitable decline.
    I think humanity is evolving beyond the need for it, and maybe even beyond the capacity for it.

    I love seeing liberals underestimating the power of the Religious Right in America. It is actually pretty hilarious. The Left can continue their marginalization of the Right, and when the revolution hits them, their heads will spin faster than Barack's when he is informed about the intricacies of US foreign policy.

    Why should anyone be silent as the secular left continues to define our culture & society on their terms - pleasant to them, in the face of a few hundred of years of history that paints quite a different picture?

    Like many on the militant left the religious right is a bunch of loud mouthed punks with no bite. Ive seen street gangs that have more balls that both of these groups of clowns.
    Jackboots always come in matched pairs, a left boot and a right boot.

    Not until they learn how to spell "religious". I have a feeling they'd be too busy drinking bud light and wanking to Rev. Ted Haggart webcam videos to trouble themselves with a revolution even if they had that level of intelligence.

    BTW, the majority of Americans aren't extremely religious in practice. I do think though that an anti-fundie religious revolution has already started.

    Most Americans don't have to be Bible thumpers in order for the "religious right" to be a threat. Most Europeans in the Dark Ages didn't read the Bible at all (actually, they couldn't). RRers themselves are hypocrites who to a huge extent don't practice what they preach. What they do represent is a hardcore manifestation of authoritarianism. Unfortunately, authoritarianism is nowhere close to gone.

    Yes, but yours only further reinforces my point. Most of that violent crime also has to with authoritarian repression, such as the idiotic "War on Drugs" (which spawns a black market sector rife with gangsterism).

    If the problem were confined to a handful of hicks, Dubya would have gotten nowhere near the presidency. For another example, America, even in many blue states, would also not be throwing people into prison for marijuana possession.

    I know it's easier to pretend that everything is OK, that the daddy state is on your side and only the "extremists" are a problem. But I'd rather not be a coward and a fool.
