Barone on Faith: A Masterful Commentary

Michale Barone is one of the most solid, clearheaded commentators on the scene today, and as usual, he manages to cut right to the heart of the faith / theocracy debate. He dismisses concerns we're headed down the theocracy road as 'silly', takes a shot at Andrew Sullivan's hysterical reaction to Benedict XVI, and makes the excellent point that those faiths that stay 'conservative' are growing in numbers, while the ones that dilute their message through 'reforms' are losing members.

His conclusion: while America is like to remain a place that welcomes freedom of religion, secular Europe faces the prospect of becoming predominantly Muslim. Read it all here.
