Are You Atheistic Enough to Be Fit For High Office?

You can tell the secularists are getting nervous about their hold on power with the rise of Governor Perry as a leading Republican contender for the nomination. The Tea Party and Michelle Bachmann was bad enough, but this guy doesn't seem to care what the liberal establishment thinks about him or his views - which is unsettling to them. He seems to have the crazy idea that if he refuses to pander to the liberal media elite he might win more votes than if he panders. What if he is right?

So Bill Keller, writing in the New York Times Magazine, calls for the media to lead the charge in asking pointed, loaded questions of the Republican candidates in this article. Read it if you want; it is nothing but standard, boiler-plate liberal prejudice against Christians - pretty boring and predictable.

But this response by Anthony Scarmone is a must-read: "The NY Times/Bill Keller Irreligious Litmus Test." It is brilliant and entertaining, not to mention devastating. Enjoy!
