Interview Questions for the Religious Right…

...that will probably never be answered.

1) You state that not being wished a “Merry Christmas” is persecution of Christianity. By the same logic, wouldn’t failing to wish a Jew “Happy Hannukah” be persecution of Judaism? And not wishing an African-American family “Happy Kwanzaa” be persecution of their culture? Wouldn’t it therefore be better to wish everyone the inclusive “Happy Holidays” or “Season’s Greetings” and not persecute anyone?

2) You say that you are not interested in creating a theocracy, but are interested in creating a form of democracy where God is the supreme source of law. Given that the definition of the word theocracy is a form of government where the rule of law comes from God, how is your form of government not a theocracy? Also, if the US is to accept the rule of God – there are many forms of God worshipped in our country – how would you go about choosing which form of God should be in charge?

2b) Since there is no logical or objective basis with which to evaluate religious beliefs, do you have a plan to institute an evaluation process that the citizenry could agree on its use?
