it used to be. One of the reasons for this is the vast amount of information we now have access to on the Internet. It is far easier to learn about atheism, secularism, and church-state activism than ever before. It is also easier for watchdog groups to disseminate action alerts to their members and to inform the public about what we can do to help.
TheocracyWatch.org is an outstanding website with which every atheist who is worried about the influence the Christian right has on the Republican Party in particular and on U.S. politics more generally should be familiar. They have some great information for those of us who are interested in strengthening the wall of separation between church and state and preventing a Christian theocracy in the U.S.
For anyone interested in learning about Christian dominionism, the rise of the Christian right within the Republican Party, and what we can do to contain these forces, look no further than TheocracyWatch.org. It is a great resource and one I expect to use regularly.
