    In general, speaking to the new topic, it can be said that the Enlightened liberal (classical even) project was to replace the existing social order or hierarchy founded on family, religion, tradition, and community in order to free man of all those encumbrances. And it has largely succeeded for there is virtually nothing now standing between the individual and the state.

The real problem of religion in this country, for those like myself and those in and outside of the "faith" as it's called, is legislative social engineering. That is to say using the law to "put God into all aspects of our society", as in education, healthcare, our judicial system, business, etc etc. The mocking" as you refer to it is based in the hypocrisies of the religious right and the illogical and unreasonable ways in which the "wasps" continue to mock, attack, attempt to legislate, i.e. force their ideology onto the rest of society while ignoring the first amendment to our constitution.

    "Conservatives" just never get this right and fail to learn from the past, thus the train shall never meet.
    This is such BS. Who has it that foisted gay marriage off on society? Transgenderism? And by the way, the American College of Pediatrics is saying that "transgenderism" applied to children is child abuse. So by extension, the political left condones child abuse. The Protestants didn't and don't do that.
