Let Them Believe in Santa Claus....
In Reason, today, Cathy Young comments on the pursuit of secularists to modify the seal of the Los Angeles.
My post is a great example of blogging on two hands.
One the one hand, I agree with Cathy completely. We secularists and atheists should not "moon the giant" with these small, largely ineffective pursuits at secularist purity. Like it or not, we're the minority in this country, and we should pick our battles wisely.
On the other hand, I don't think that this article should take away that fact that religious extremists are constantly and consistently pushing their agenda of turning our nation into a Christian nation through the implicit force inherent in the our federal and state laws. We should never forget that this tendency of a radical minority poses a much much greater threat to our democracy and freedom than the small minded attempts of a few to over-vigilant in the separation of church and state.
