A what kind of foreign policy?

The House Republican whip (the second in the House minority party hierarchy) says we need a "Judeo-Christian" Midlle East policy: Cantor: Set Mideast policies in ‘Judeo-Christian’ tradition JTA 07/21/09.

I wonder what such a thing would be. My guess is that it probably wouldn't do a lot to reduce problems with the Muslim world.

On the subject of theocracy, Sex and power inside "the C Street House" by Jeff Sharlet Salon 07/21/09 is definitelty worth a read. It's about the Christianist group that calls itself The Family and actually has a significant influence over American policies.

That we who lived by honest dreams
Defend the bad against the worse."
