What's more evidence that a society is in danger of becoming a theocracy? Hobby Lobby or the attacks on Pamela Geller?

Update:

Hobby Lobby held that businesses do not have to pay for birth control if it contradicts their religious beliefs. Pamela Geller held a cartoon drawing contest, people tried to kill her, and many people said that in effect she was "asking for it."

    Neither action points to a theocracy.

    Hobby Lobby was a question of whether a privately held company can be run according to the owner's Christian values.

    Pamela Geller is a citizen wishing to exercise free speech and freedom of peaceful assembly.

    Why is it that we are well on our way to establishing Sharia Law in some areas and Secular Humanism as the State Religion and the Liberals are okay with this.

    Judeo-Christian values brought us the US Constitution giving freedoms guaranteed by God. For over 200 years these freedoms now we want the whims of a fickle State to be the source of your freedom!?

    If we are to continue to be a free people we need to move closer to our Founders world view and away from secular humanism.

    The Hobby Lobby decision was an actual government action that declared corporate persons can exercise religious freedom, a new reading of the 1st amendment free exercise clause. The Pamela Geller incident was the action of real individuals who exercised their 1st amendment right to freedom of speech. The religious context was at best secondary in the Geller case; it was definitely more about speech than religion.

    I cannot tell if the Hobby Lobby decision gets us any closer to a theocracy, but at least it was about religion. Whereas, the Geller incident was about speech, not religion, so it did not do what you asked about.

    Some types of birth control, not all. The fact that libs justify the planned attacks on Geller for her speech or what they believe she represents, is more telling.

    I would support ms. Geller if she puts on an art show in the Middle East. It would have the most impact there.

    Neither.

    Those are both actions of private individuals not Governments...you evidently don't know what a theocracy is.

    Neither. All you need to do is to listen to conservatives. They want to replace America's democracy with a theocracy based on the Old Testament of the Holy Bible - Christian sharia law.
