The left's war on religion

A must-read new column by Salena Zito:
 American leftists have made a religion out of government; they were angry, not because people called for appeals to a higher being, but because it was to God — not government.

The left does not want Americans to lift up victims in prayer because it wants us to seek solace in public policy. Left-wing politicians think religion is an opiate for the masses, and they want to take the rabble off that drug.

It was no accident that this outburst of liberal anger included both guns and religion. The modern urban-coastal left believes guns and religion are totems for fools.

Even many liberal religious leaders have use for prayer only when it does not get in the way of liberal secular political aims.
