Kuo's Democratic Parallel
This reader makes a good point:
The perfect parallel to the Kuo and Christianism post is the Democrats' treatment of blacks the past 30 years. I'm sure senior staff in the Clinton administration would roll their eyes at the antics of Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton and call them 'the nuts'. But when election time rolled around play 'race card' and poverty pimp games to gin up African-American turnout.
Gays too. But neither gays nor African-Americans believe that their various issues are all God's will, in the way Christianists do. What you have with Christianism is the worst of liberal special interest group politics with the worst of Republican intolerance and rigidity.
