Program #PHIK002. Recorded in Boulder, CO on April 10, 2006.By most standards, the Bush Administration, more than any other in U.S. history, has blurred the distinction between church and state. Never before has so much taxpayer money, some $2 billion, gone to religious groups via the "faith-based initiative" program. According to Kevin Phillips, the base of Bush's political support is "a huge evangelical. fundamentalist, and Pentecostal community" with their own "broadcast, publishing, and direct-mail empires." A 2006 Baylor University poll finds Americans in large numbers believe in a wrathful, authoritarian God. And many agree that "God favors the U.S. in international politics." As religious fervor grows, is democracy edging toward theocracy?
