Theology vs. Technology

Listening to a discussion of the US anti-missile program on NPR the other day. The one remark that caught my ear was from a former head of the Department of Defence testing program:

We don't have an anti-missile technology, we have an anti-missile theology.

That's true of most of the Reagan era dogma that dominates the GOP. We have seen what happens when you rely on faith-based economics in the financial crash. We have seen what happens when you rely on faith-based foreign policy (we will be greeted as liberators!) in Iraq. We will probably find out how faith-based climate policy works out. Let's not really rely on a faith-based military plan.

Especially not now, with God having plenty of reason to be annoyed with us.
