Joe Haldeman predicted this…

A hat-tip to my blogging neighbour, ex-US diplomat Gerry Loftus, for linking me to this horrifying article from this monthy’s Harper’s about the infiltration of Christian evangelicals into the US military. Joe Haldeman’s near-future novel Forever Peace has this scenario leading almost to the destruction of the planet Earth. (Heinlein, typically, has this the other way round.)

Normally I’m disinclined to weigh in on atheists vs believers, other than telling people to get a grip, but this is really very disturbing indeed…

    They got 12 and 14% of the votes, and people don’t seem to be inclined to vote for them – both of those were a drop on 2007.

    To be honest, without the FPTP problems of the UK-wide system, there doesn’t seem to be a good reason to vote for them in Scotland. Possibly, if the Scots get complete control of their finances people will want to vote for a more financially right-wing party, but it seems unlikely.
