Recently, on Facebook, I saw a carefully crafted image macro explaining that, no, the U.S. is not a theocracy.

And that's technically correct. We only have 'In God We Trust' on all our paper money, we have 'Under God' in the Pledge of Allegiance, and there are laws in seven states (unconstitutional laws, mind you) saying that you cannot hold public office in those states unless you believe in God.

But we are not a theocracy.

But we do have plenty of would-be theocrats. Like this lady from Michigan, who's running for a seat in the Republican National Committee, who thinks all gays should be expelled from the Republican party, and that homosexuality is of Satan.


You know, at this point, I'm not sure why there would still be any gay people in the Republican party, considering how most of the Republican politicians are treating them.
