Using the Law to Force Religion on Others

It can be quite depressing for a modern atheist to watch the way American Christians are using civil law to successfully force their religion down everyone’s throats, spreading lies and crank notions about homosexuals, evolution, global warming, embryology, euthanasia, birth control… To counter that despair, study the dark ages where Christians had everything the way they wanted and how utterly bleak and unbearable they made existence with their superstitions and institutional cruelty. Yet somehow we crawled out of that black hole. America has partially fallen back, but can rise again. America has the intellectual help and economic competition from the rest of the world to keep them from falling as deeply into religious insanity as we did in the dark ages.
