Thanks for the heads up! However, I put all articles from infidels.org in the same bucket as democratsunderground.com because of their "mission:"
Our adopted mission is to defend and promote Metaphysical Naturalism, a nontheistic worldview which holds that our natural world is all that there is, a closed system in no need of a supernatural explanation and sufficient unto itself. To that end we publish the very best secular books, essays, papers, articles and reviews. We also stand as a bulwark against the forces of superstition, especially the radical religious right, whose proponents would have us fear knowledge rather than embrace it.
If you follow the political activism pages on the website, you'll see that they are among the extreme left-wing activists.
Therefore, I decline to comment on the article.

I didn't notice the source, and I wasn't aware of their mission. I thought it was interesting history, even though I felt the author stretched a bit to reach his conclusions.

(Felix, qui potuit rerum cognoscere causas.)
Yes, I think you are right ... the latter part of the mission statement shows a knee-jerk anti-Conservative bias.
(As for superstition, I see superstition from the GlobalWarming "naturalists/Gaiaists", but they dont see that I guess.)
I've said on another thread that even atheists should be supporting the public expressions that Judge Moore and other public officials engage in when they display the source of our laws. after all, it is a free expression of belief, and so stopping this is squelching freedom.
So you might say the hidden agenda there is to get non-believers all worked up on the other side of this issue - right were the ACLU and other radical activists would want them.
