A Thought on Christianism

In the whole pro/con debate over the word Christianism, I’ve never seen anyone reference what seems to me a more fruitful (and obvious) method.

The Christianist trend, to the degree that it exists–and I think there is some but nothing anywhere near the Andrew Sullivan argued levels–has influence at state and local levels. Not on federal levels. The Terri Schiavo case showed the over-extension and the major hit the Republicans (see Bill Frist) as a result.

The Republican corruption, power play and traditional conservative critiques of the Republican (power corrupts, absolutely) would apply on the federal level. That individuals stripped from local contexts/knowledge, unaccountable, and sinful by nature led to hubris. Pride goes before the fall.
