    Nope.

    I think the time for that was a number of years ago, but it was somewhat short lived, politically.

    Evangelicalism is still strong in American religion, Catholicism is still going strong, Atheism is somewhat increasing, but has not really changed its character...and so on and so on.

    Looking for another "Great Awakening", Navy?

    I am surprised to see a few of my Conservative friends parting company with me on this...It is sad to see............
    Maybe its because TRUE conservatives oppose big government. Todays "conservatives" advocate your HUGE government regulation of their evangelical social agenda. Goldwater opposed governmental involvement in abortion and gay issues.

    The reality is....the so called "Moral majority" represent only a small fringe of the the people in this country. Most people in this country still believe in freedom and don't support government regulation into the most private areas of their lives. Yes, Navy....there will always be a few people such as yourself that advocate for big government and oppose basic freedoms....but America still stands for liberty and justice for all....and eventually gets it right.

    Well, Well, Well. Wonder where the idea for this thread started?

    Take a look at the time posted. 7:33 PM. You know what was on TV?

    The O'Reilly Factor. In fact, right around 7:30, Bill was doing a story about this EXACT topic, featuring none other than Ann Coulter.

    Navy, get more original next time.

    I'm going to monitor all of your threads and cross-reference them to what's on Fox.

    O' Reilly was promoting the idea? Figures.

    No, because you know Bill is a journalist...he is always objective.

    Ann Coulter was his guest. You do the math.

    If anything, I believe a 'religious revolution' would do far more harm to evangelicals than it would to social progressives. Keep in mind this is a revolution we are talking about here, so I think the following scenarios are quite likely under such a circumstance. Forget marriage entirely - I imagine that a religious revolution would seek to eliminate the rights of homosexuals to even practice homosexuality, given that it is viewed as 'wrong' by those types of folks. If abortion was to be outlawed, those who could afford to travel to Europe or any nation where it was legal would simply go elsewhere to have it done. Those that could not would have one via the 'back alley' method. And then there is forced prayer in school. Nevermind that America now has plenty of children from folks who practice other religions, or don't practice one at all. The Christian religion will be rammed down your throat in a public school system. After you are 18, you can make the choice to not worship, but until then you'll pray to Jesus in a public school, and you'll like it.

    'Separation of church and state' would be written out of American history books, as that tends to give liberals crazy ideas like religious freedom and individual liberty. And speaking of crazy ideas, there's that whole Scopes Monkey Trial thing. We can't have a little Evolution getting in the way of Creationism, no sir!

    No, I believe it wouldn't take too much of that kinda stuff before this whole 'religious revolution' thing ends up in the social dumpster, and is utterly rejected by the masses. However, don't get me wrong here - a little religion can be a good thing. When it feeds the poor, shelters the homeless, gives folks hope and encourages kindness towards others, that's good stuff. When it shuts down the local titty bars, tries to dictate who can and can't get married, and tells me how I should live my life, then it's a bad thing. A kinder, gentler Christianity - that's what America needs. Forget the whole 'revolution' thing.

    Had the question been is there likely to be a serious series of violent conflicts between Muslims and the General U.S. public I would say all of the pieces are in place for this to happen.

    Obama placing the GITMO 5 on trial in N.Y. so they can get off on technicalities will add to the possibility and resentment.
    I see this as a blatant attempt placate Muslims and it is no surprise once you see what Obama said this from his Book Audacity of Hope: I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.

    But why would it necessarily advocate social conservative values when a revolution could just as well advocate social liberalism?
