The Demise: Mormons or Muslims?

The correct answer: neither.  As the Republican party drifts farther to the right, embracing the Tea Party and Mormon Glenn Beck - just as whacked out fundagelicals threaten to burn the Koran and wring their hands about Muslims, and Islam gradually outbreeds everybody and takes over Europe while it acquires The Bomb - the world has become a dangerously polarized place.  What's the answer?  Secularism, and the separation of church and state.  We North Americans may be tempted to run for the cover of religion ABI (anything but Islam) but that's a trap.  Mitt Romney and his ilk who believe the Garden of Eden is in Missouri, and that it's fine to baptize and marry the dead (against their wishes, I'm sure) aren't the answer.  Long live secularism.
