Several different columnists have now commented on the impending theocracy in America vis a vis the Schiavo case. Today, Paul Krugman, one of the most powerful columnists in the nation (he writes for the NY Times) joins the chorus.

But it’s also true of the United States, where dangerous extremists belong to the majority religion and the majority ethnic group, and wield great political influence.
