Christian Fascists

The article from Harper’s I discuss in today’s piece is not available on the net, but you can find an excerpt about “Christian fascists” over at Mahablog. One thing I didn’t mention in my piece is the remark that appears to caution liberals against playing by the “old, polite rules of democracy” when dealing with conservative Christians. If I’m reading that right, then not only do we have a systematic attempt to identify conservative Christians with fascists in a mainstream organ, we also have a call to disregard democratic principles when opposing them. How’s that for the side that claims to respect “checks and balances?”
