Just read your "Scary George Bush" page and I thought I would let you know that you are not alone. Here in Australia our recently appointed Governor General, who is essentially a proxy head of state for the Queen of England with the power to dissolve parliament, dismiss the elected government at will and veto any legislation approved by both houses of the parliament is an Archbishop of the Anglican Church.
We have followed the lead of the USA into religious fundamentalism and all of its associated dangers. The most insidious of which is the massive diversion of government funds from state run secular schools to private religious based institutions. Brainwash 'em while they are young.
In time the truth will prevail but these are difficult times and the religious types will not accept that they are part of the problem not part of the solution.

No wonder Australia sometimes logs as many "hits" as the U.S.
