Theocracy on the way

Theocracy on the way
With a movement toward theocracy now openly visible, will the non-religious and any religious who see the danger in this come together to oppose such a change?  Or will it overwhelm an apathetic population?
Why is it so?

What makes you think a theocracy is soon to be? I mean that would be wonderful, but what makes you think that?

While I am quite positive Ahriman will fully embrace their Muslim overlords I, for one, will find it interesting as to how exactly people will take to regressing back to bronze age practices.....

I don't see why anybody would think a theocracy is anywhere near on the horizon. It won't happen within my lifetime.

No, despite the desperate attempts by evangelicals and the Republican party, I don't see it gappenibg soon, either.

However, my question applied to you saying such a thing would be "wonderful".

A question you haven't answered

Well I think it would be wonderful. I know not everyone would think that.

What would be wonderful about having a bunch of god botherers in charge, and how would they treat atheists and other rational thinkers?

Theocracy where a Huckabee is president?  Falwellian theocracy?  Or just a bible-holder-upper type guy?
