    The left has captured the minds of the young through media and entertainment and have been doing so for a few decades.

    I'm amused by how many of the conservatives here appear to fundamentally dislike democracy and would apparently much rather have some sort of dictatorship.

    I got the sarcasm quite well, but it is too bad that blaming religion for all the ills of the world is just an old strawman. In truth, there's many different governments, including dictatorships with an atheist agenda (such as the USSR and China).

    Democracy is two wolves and a sheep voting on what's going to be had for dinner.

    A Theocracy is not a democratic nation with a Catholic/Religious majority. If you're going by that definition, then all nations are Theocracies.
