Well said.

I'm glad you are sympathetic to the fact, Richard, that this movement smells like "quasi-religious conformity". Also that it is confined to the US and would be less effective in Europe.

But, if this is the only effective method by which to oppose religious political power in the US, so be it. Swallowing pride may be necessary there (note to my dissenters: it is swallowing pride).

On a more practical point, what would you suggest that Europe does to aid the US movement, as wearing 'A' t-shirts would be useless here, if not counter-productive?

Personally I think the first step is outlawing all faith schools (extreme child manipulation). But how?
