The Religious Right: a fish out of water

This picture was drawn by Erika Aoyama.

Willzhead has a wonderful post where he is certain of the decline of the religious right in the US. To whet your appetite, here is a quote:

I based this expectation on systems thinking, which states that organizations act in certain ways because that is what they are. When they act in ways not in keeping with who they are, they fail. Fish live in water, for example, because they are aquatic beings. Take a fish out of the water and it will eventually die. In this way, it seems to me that Christians efforts for power and domination will eventually fail because they are simply not Christian. The overt exercise of power is a foreign cancer to the Body of Christ and will always need to be removed.
