The Theocratic Republic of the United States

The flood gates have opened. The slim Bush win seems to have given every crackpot in high office (or high judicial stature) a reason to pattern our ways of life based on religion. America - despite having God stuck into our cash and pledge - was founded on being religion-neutral. The religious ball-and-chain is what the founding fathers were trying to GET AWAY FROM.

So Scalia's not only a crackpot - he's an UNEDUCATED crackpot. This is the LAST guy you want a history lesson from.
Scalia says religion infuses U-S government and history

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia says a religion-neutral government doesn't fit with an America that reflects belief in God in everything from its money to its military.

Scalia told an interfaith conference at a New York synagogue that courts should consider that heritage in making their rulings.

In Europe, Scalia noted, religion-neutral leaders almost never publicly use the word "God." But he asked, "Did it turn out that, by reason of the separation of church and state, the Jews were safer in Europe than they were in the United States of America?" He added, "I don't think so."

Scalia said official examples of the presence of faith go back to America's Founding Fathers -- the word "God" on U-S currency, chaplains in the military and the legislature, real estate tax-exemptions for houses of worship and the phrase "under God" in the Pledge of Allegiance.
Judge Scalia might want to sport this belt buckle worn once upon a time by a certain "master race" as ordered by (ahem) Hitler. It's getting that frightening.

Translation: "God is with us."
