Mr. Gorbachev, Build Up This Wall!

Item:
Talking about the changing political landscape, former House speaker Newt Gingrich expressed concern today that religious Americans may soon face a “secular tyranny.”

“The great danger is that you’re going to see a real drive to outlaw and limit Christianity,” Gingrich said at a National Review breakfast briefing. “It’s okay to be Christian as long as you’re not really Christian. It’s a very serious problem.”

“You can’t actually have an adoption service that’s run by Catholics unless they’re willing to be not Catholic,” Gingrich remarked, alluding to the Catholic organizations that refuse to consider gay couples for adoptive parents and have had to close as a result.

“That should bother people,” Gingrich continued. “You’re now beginning to see a secular tyranny begin to set in that is very dangerous, and we need to have a national debate about it.”
Opening the door to more people to do more things: tyranny. See also libertarian conceptions of freedom.

Gingrich determining that other people are not real christians! (i.e. non-Dominationists who do not want to become an established religion)

I didn't see that coming.

For a bunch of douchebags who natter on endlessly about some vague concept they call "Freedom" or "Liberty", they are terribly unclear on the concept.

Freedom to discriminate against large groups of people is not freedom. Taking away other people's rights is not liberty...

Atheists are continuing to take America down. For example, take the left-wing warmonger that they elected president.

We totally should've elected Bush/Cheney to a third term.
