Secularists & Political Power

Writing at National Review Online, Arthur Brooks rebuts the notion that secularists are somehow "excluded" from the corridors of political power. Quite the contrary.

In fact, as I noted here, secularists are alive and well and voting with the Democrats. Although it's rarely discussed, that fact inevitably handicaps Democratic efforts to reach out to people of faith -- because at a certain point, doing so will alienate a key constituency: Those who aren't just indifferent about, but are actually hostile to, religious faith.
