Okay, Buck, I'll agree this is true, to a point. It's ashame that they
have to be at war with eachother.

I'll trust my Catholic faith more than a lot of the insipid crap I got
in college.

Mainstream liberalism has the universities, the mainstream media,
and the entertainment industry.

Mainstream conservativism has much (but not all) of American religion,
and the alternate media (i.e. talk radio, and some of the internet outlets).

Okay, that's an observation, but not sure where that leads us.

My ultimate position is that I don't want the government to become
controlled by the radical left (i.e., a huge, controlling, micromanaging
government). This would be far worse than religion being "controlled
by the right", as you describe, for one demonstrably irrefutable reason:
Religion is optional. Government is not.
