Public Stoning: Not Just for the Taliban Anymore

It's impossible to escape the religious tyranny in a theocratic society. It seems no matter where you go, there are god people trying to convince everyone that they are right. What's worse is the organized religious groups that have snowballed into very powerful lobbyists and activists for the sake of spreading their beliefs amongst the public sector including the government. I wish the non-religious (sane) people had such power. Every time someone dares mention that maybe the ten commandments shouldn't be hanging in a county courthouse, or maybe creationism isn't science class material, they are immediately labeled as evil, and the stoning begins.

Here is an interesting article about the trend towards religion in politics. It's pretty scary to think this is really going on in a 'free' society.
