Theocracy today

We have seen the law used aggressively to force religious people and entities to subscribe to practices and policies that are antithetical to their faith. . . . This reminds me of how some Roman emperors could not leave their loyal Christian subjects in peace but would mandate that they violate their conscience by offering religious sacrifice to the emperor as a God. . . .

Militant secularists today do not have a live-and-let-live spirit—they are not content to leave religious people alone to practice their faith. Instead they seem to take a delight in compelling people to violate their conscience. . . . Thus, for example, New Jersey, recently passed a law requiring public schools to adopt an LGBT curriculum that many feel is inconsistent with traditional Christian teaching. . . . And the Orange County Board of Education in California issued an opinion that parents who disagree with the instructional materials related to gender, gender identity, gender expression and sexual orientation may not excuse their children from this instruction.”

Some idiots, with no sense of irony, call Barr’s talk as endorsement of theocracy.
