On the occasion of celebrating the life of Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, let us not forget that at the core of his critique of both West and East is the prevalence of a fanatical "Godlessness" that its present-day proponents (aka, "the New Atheists") claim is "Reason." Thus, it should not surprise us that there are those among us--the Godless, if you will--who presently suggest, however modestly, a permanent sequestering of the religious citizen, from the realms of cultural influence and power, on the grounds that he or she is dangerous and/or unfit for the "rationality" that the public square requires.
We need not look further than Professor P. Z. Myers and Professor Daniel Dennett. The former believes that nothing is sacred, except his incorrigible right to say that nothing is sacred. (Narcissism, by the way, is not a political philosophy). The latter, author of Breaking the Spell, apparently has suggested that certain Baptists be placed in zoos, which, for Professor Peter Singer is just a Gulag for non-human animals.
