Senator Whitehouse's approach is actually very smart considering the context in which he's working. What he's done is shifted the religious discussion over to something similar to Deism, with its deep roots among the Founders. This makes it particularly hard for his opponents to challenge, without seeming to show disrespect for our own history.

Yes, the very idea that we have to do this in the century that, we were promised, would already have seen live missions to Jupiter, borders between alarming and obscene. None the less, when dealing with drunks who wish to drive, you do whatever's necessary to take the keys.

To which I'll add my own contribution:

"For those of you who believe in the Second Coming, is that what you want God to see? That you've trashed His creation? Tell me, when your parents went out for dinner and left you alone at home, did you trash your house and expect them to clean it up? Is that what you expect of Jesus Christ? To come back with a broom and shovel to clean up after you? That's not a Christian attitude. That's a spoiled-brat attitude. Now grow up and act like responsible adults!"
