Hints from religious conservatives about how they would change American Democracy...

...if they get the chance.

I include this information as a warning. If we continue to elect right wing leadership connected to the religious right, this is what we will get. There is an appeal here to the appearance of "democratic values." But the fact of the matter is that within this particular religious denomination, control by an oligarchy is the status quo, and it always has been that way. It's a throwback to the antebellum south, to a culture and time when prestige and prominence, in the form of wealth and influence, mattered, and nothing else did. It was a society based on class, with the lower classes there to serve the wealthy and preserve the status quo, as well as someone else's wealth. That's the Southern Baptist Convention in a nutshell.
