Is America becoming a Theocracy?

In his latest book, American Theocracy, a political analyst asserts that harmfully influential religion is one of three major perils that America faces this century. The Republican party has morphed into "the first religious party in U.S. history," author Kevin Phillips states, and it is pushing an "American Disenlightenment" that rejects the traditional separation of church and state as well as ignoring science, whether scientific research or teaching. He also puts American extreme religious conservatives on the same level as radical Muslims.
