Or is that not the wave-length you were thinking of ?
We had a president who expressed it was his duty by god to attack Iraq, and you don't see similarities?
We currently has legislators undermining separation of church and state, who are removing womens rights, and are actively working against rights of homosexuals.
We currently have heavy allowances for "religious" organizations that allow lax restrictions for taxes and for such simple things as child care.
of the candidates we've had in this election, three were bug nutter insane and especially Santorum made remarks that were indistinguishable from the fatwah declaring ayatollahs.
There is something incredibly damaged about this system if someone like Santorum is considered a candidate.
