Great article. I keep telling peole that atheism is a religion, making many of the same points, but they never believe me unless they're not atheists. Secular progressives don't even see themselves as a religion anymore, they simply see themselves as the 'enlightened,' who must spread their superior knowledge to us ignorant masses. In some ways, they see themselves as God, or at the very least, prophets, who must convert the unbelievers for their own good. However, we cannot be trusted to make the right decision when presented with their philosophies, so it must be forced through whatever means necessary, a.k.a. judicial activism.
Actually, not true. If the people of the US want to switch to Bolshevism, then the people should change the Constitution, not ignore it. The Constitution is the supreme law of the land, and no other law should be considered above it in any legal context, whatsoever. If the people decided they wanted a Christian theocracy, I imagine Holmes would be arguing that the Constitution and the judiciary should stand in the way for their own good.
The secular progressives have nearly succeeded in indoctrination through education, and you can already see them at work against the last defense we have against them, the family. With no-fault divorce, gay marriage, and many other 'progressive' causes destroying the nuclear family, as well as celebrities like Oprah attempting to make this structure outdated, the family is faltering. However, the family is probably the only thing left to teach people traditional values. I'm glad I came from a stable family, but that's become the exception, rather than the rule.
Is democracy a religion?

Does anyone know what this case was all about? The case name may help..I didn't see any info in the post about what was before the court. Maybe I missed it.
That doesn't help.
Why can't you just answer the question?

Jeez, no wonder you never know what's going on in a thread. You're blind.
Do you know anyone else on the board well enough that they can call you and read the question to you?
