Sam Rosenfeld takes issue with my statement that "The Theocrats are coming for their payment."

He is right that for the most part they won't be getting it, at least at the Federal level. But, that's largely due to the fact that absolutely nothing would satisfy these people. As Echidne writes, they consider themselves to be at war and they love fighting that war. Sure, they need to win a battle here and there to make them satifised, but they'd never stop. We'd achieve some version of Gilead, and they'd still imagine they were oppressed and struggling. Once they got more of what they wanted they various factions would just turn on each other.
