I've been thinking about it, and I remain torn. I don't think a man should be banned from speaking at a prayer meeting just because he happens to be governor. OTOH, I have a big problem with him using his position as governor to promote and organize said prayer meeting. I am not totally sure where these things overlap or cancel one another out.

As for the cultural dominance of Christianity--it's there. Sometimes I am more OK with it than at other times.

There are no kings over this land.

To state the obvious.

Nothing demonstrates the basic authoritarianism of the Religious Right and The Tea Party better than this 'prayer gathering'.

Nah, more pharaoh than king, with his downtrodden peasantry, gold encrusted nobles, and a crumbling, parched wasteland just beyond his sight.

You can add states rights confederates to the above.
