The Zuckermans and radical leftists like mad man Pete Starks (D-Menlo Park, CA) merely exhibit their own religious bigotry hoping to shout down anyone with the temerity to insist that secularists don't get to make the rules.
This is the only way to approach issues concerning faith in the Public Square. Let's stop talking this way and insist that even Atheists own up to their own humanity and religious nature (for that is what Man is..he serves some god, even himself) instead of allowing them to posit some civil religion where Christians and those of other faiths must live like second class citizens.
Finally, the only way Evangelicals are going to get straightened out is also to give up the notion that there is some civil religion to which they can add their personal testimony. Instead they ought to stand with Kuyper, that every inch of creation, including politics, is God's; and to love his church not only in West Texas, but in Pakistan as well.

But it does give a new wrinkle to "'civil' religion"
In this advent season let's pray that Christians in America, for the sake of the nation, gain some discernment of spirit. and repent from giving our hearts to false idols and feel-good false teaching like Whittle's.
In Lenin's view, all that's left after the revolution is "administration of things." And you wondered why Obama is such a "dispassionate wonk!" D.C. has become an unmanageable morass of unaccountability and manipulation by money and power.
In California, this translated into calls for "good government" and "scientific administration" of the peoples' business, which created an entire class of civil servants who we now realize are not scientifically or politically neutral at all but just another corrupt politburo that siphons off resources from the people to benefit themselves, cronies, pols in tow, and supporters.
Sure the Progressives kicked out the Robber Barrons, but look what we are left with...initiatives supposed to protect people are now just a mischievous playground for special interests, and public employee pensions that have squandered the wealth of the Golden State.
Thank you Teddy Roosevelt!
And please stop with equating "working people" with unionized thuggery. You don't speak for more than 12% of workers in U.S. but get 100% of the sweet deals.
But hey, your from Sactomatoe so your gubbermint job is secure...for now.
