“There’s something rotten in the state of America” could be a line from a modern Shakespeare.
“Theocracy is the worst of all governments.” C.S. Lewis
The Theocrats Are Here There's a sickness in the land, the gods of vengeance masquerade as righteous lovers of goodness, but their wolfish snouts peek out from beneath their sheepish skins for all to see, though sadly, too late for reversals, now judgements scour the land as to who owns women's bodies, the divinity of children, the evil of colour that is not white, where you park a penis (even never), whether to murder in the name of justice - electric, gas or juice, there's a sickness in the land, there's no rash or temperature, it's a handgun and an AR-15.

Note: C.S. Lewis’ quote goes on to say (profoundly) that “If we must have a tyrant, a robber baron is far better than an inquisitor. The baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity at some point be sated; and since he dimly knows he is doing wrong he may possibly repent. But the inquisitor who mistakes his own cruelty and lust of power and fear for the voice of Heaven will torment us infinitely because he torments us with the approval of his own conscience and his better impulses appear to him as temptations.”
