And the Meek Shall Inherit?

For a good overview of the Religious Right and the Right to Die, click the link and read the Harper's article. It's several month's old but still pertinent especially with the recent execution.

Also, I will re-recommend this article, also from Harper's, about the Left-Behind series.

At the core of both of these articles (as well as this article by Jeffrey Sharlet about Ivanwald and the secret Christian society) show the destructive influence of religion when it is taken as a point of pride dressed up as humility.
