Christianity

Christianity in of itself, seems to be a threat to our democracy. It doesn't even have to get to the warped stage to do so, in my opinion. Same goes for all the other religions.

“It is proof of a base and low mind for one to wish to think with the masses or majority, merely because the majority is the majority. Truth does not change because it is, or is not, believed by a majority of the people.”
― Giordano Bruno

What democracy? Where?  

What democracy? Where?

 The same rhetorical question goes to those currently buying into the lie of a "constitutionally limited republic". I'll believe it when I see it. BobSpence was accurate in pointing out (in the "immigration and idiots" thread) how the masses are easily exploited here in America by well-funded, well-connected organizations. It bears repeating, because we are.

Radical theists are a threat to a free society; complacent consumers are a much larger yet much more subtle threat (because they aren't as inclined to fuss.)

“A meritocratic society is one in which inequalities of wealth and social position solely reflect the unequal distribution of merit or skills amongst human beings, or are based upon factors beyond human control, for example luck or chance. Such a society is socially just because individuals are judged not by their gender, the colour of their skin or their religion, but according to their talents and willingness to work, or on what Martin Luther King called 'the content of their character'. By extension, social equality is unjust because it treats unequal individuals equally.” "Political Ideologies" by Andrew Heywood (2003)
