A Born-Again Government

Here's the always interesting Garry Wills:

The right wing in America likes to think that the United States government was, at its inception, highly religious, specifically highly Christian, and even more specifically highly biblical. That was not true of that government or any later government--until 2000, when the fiction of the past became the reality of the present.

Wills outlines the extent of the religious incursions into the current White House.

Mitch, have you read Moral Minority - Our Skeptical Founding Fathers by Brooke Allen? I reviewed it here with a bonus quiz on Founding Father quotes on the subject of church-state separation. I recommend this book highly.
