Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

Religion and politics in S.C.

This isn’t really news, though when Republicans engage in this sort of behavior there’s typically all sorts of worry about theocracy. Is there no worry in this case because no one thinks the Democrats are serious?

For the record, I think Obama is serious about his "religion" and that he’s not a theocrat in any ordinary sense, just a run-of-the-mill big government guy.

Joe K. - Why did you put religion in the scare/sarcasm/irony quotes? What does that mean here?

There are two elements in Obama's religious discourse. One is his recognition of a personal incompleteness that points him toward God. The other is a worldly activism that is indistinguishable from secular liberalism.
