A secular atheist country dominated by radical Islamists

Apparently, probable US presidential candidate Newt Gingrich just declared that

“I have two grandchildren: Maggie is 11; Robert is 9,” Gingrich said at Cornerstone Church here. “I am convinced that if we do not decisively win the struggle over the nature of America, by the time they’re my age they will be in a secular atheist country, potentially one dominated by radical Islamists and with no understanding of what it once meant to be an American.”

It’s interesting to see how at least some American right-wingers so readily associate “secular atheist” with “dominated by radical Islamists.” I can just about put myself in an appropriately paranoid frame of mind in which such a link makes some vague kind of sense. But my brain hurts when I do so—it’s painful to try to sustain the mood.

The US is a country of morons ruled by assholes. As are, I imagine, most other countries. Civilization doesn’t deserve to survive.
