The American Scene; "Theocons"

The author of "Theocracy! Theocracy! Theocracy!" comments in his blog about political participation by those who use religious arguments:
"...their arguments are as legitimate as any other set of arguments in the public square, and that our debates about public policy shouldn't get sidetracked by pointless and ahistorical ad hominems about the supposed existential threat America faces from 'theocons' and 'Christianists.'"
Their ensues a lengthy and interesting exchange in the "comments" about the legitimacy of political participation by the "Religious Right."
