Friday, October 20, 2006 Interview with Esther Kaplan

I found this excellent interview from with Esther Kaplan. In it, she outlines the unconstitutional and frightening shift that the US government has taken towards Christian fundamentalism. She also perfectly sums up my feelings towards the Christian right:

“Look, if Christian fundamentalists want to use their faith as a guide for their own lives, and want to personally shun homosexuality, abortion, sex education, and even evolutionary science, their freedom to do so is fiercely protected by the Constitution. But when they try to impose those views on the rest of the country, whether they admit it or not, they are pushing us toward theocracy.”

All in all, it’s pretty informative reading, so check it out.
