Anyone who thinks we're just getting hysterical when we worry about the Religious Right trying to set up a theocracy should (a) come live in Arkansas for awhile and (b) go read this post by Orcinus:
These Leviticans aren't actually worried about being persecuted or religious freedom. They're like the Puritans in 1602. They want to oppress the rest of us. They've got one answer, one-size fits all, one way to rule us all -- and if we let them have their way, we'll have a country that will make the Taliban look like a Sunday school picnic.
