Thanks for the plug/link.

I do think the issue of Christian "tyranny" is a bit mischaracterized. No Christian I know endorses a theocracy, all that is being asked is stop the erosion of our traditional Judeo-Christian culture and heritage.

If some 87% of the population believe that Judeo-Christian precepts are the underpinnings of our nation and that the corporate acknowledgment of God is a good thing and has done us in good stead for a couple of centuries, you can begin to understand the Christian concern when the ACLU and the secularist make every effort to purge those fundamentals from our society.

MERRY CHRISTMAS! (Hopefully, The Light and the Glory was under your Christmas tree and gift-wrapped for you reading pleasure beginning tomorrow....)

I probably wasn't clear about "the tyranny of the majority." It doesn't specifically refer to Christians--it was a phrase used by the founding fathers to explain the protections granted by the Bill of Rights.

Their fear was that any majority left unfettered would impose its beliefs on a minority--and since they were in the minority in Europe and saw the problems, they wanted protection against that.

I confess I share some of your annoyance at the lengths to which liberals go...I admire and support the ACLU (and did when they supported the Nazi's marching in Illinois years ago--and I'm Jewish). But I do sometimes wish they'd pick their battles a little more carefully.

On the other hand, you have to acknowledge that some Christians are getting out of hand--the recent episodes at the Air Force Academy are a chilling indication of what can happen when one group goes too far.

I have to confess, I haven't bought The Light & The Glory yet--but it's on my list & i've just starred it (LOL).

Have a Merry Christmas and a very successful New Year.
