Roads to Tyranny

As I asserted in a post in 2010, pandering to Christian bigotry is one of the fastest roads to tyranny in America. As Sarah Posner reports today at Religion Dispatches, religious discrimination against Muslims and gays by federally-funded Christian non-profits remains an allowed violation of the U.S. Constitution by the Obama Administration. In answer to reporters questioning this abuse of power by the president, the newly appointed Faith-Based Office csar Melissa Rogers stated the discriminatory policy is under review. As Posner observes, though, the review has been going on for four years.

As Peter Montgomery notes,the global reach of Far-Right Christian hatred has murderous intent. The fact President Obama blows off this human rights concern should be a source of outrage by American tax-payers.
