What I *do* recall from that time-period (and a large amount of it was before I was Christian, I noticed it and was shocked even while non-religious) was atheism making a full assault on religion. They suddenly tried to abolish the Commandments from courthouses, wanted to yank down any display seen as religious, even wanted to ban Christmas and the ability to say Merry Christmas (a centuries old tradition celebrated even by non-Christians). Then ironically after chasing out a lot of religion, they then wanted atheism to be recognized as a religion (when it even means the belief in no religion) to benefit in the religious protections that they worked to strip from so many other instances, even so far as getting statues of satan placed outside of courthouses. -_-

The banning Merry Christmas thing is the classic straw man argument, perversely changing it from something of joy into a snide Christian supremacist sneering boast. The fact is theocrats like Mike Huckabee (unless he changed since I last looked him up) far outnumber people who want to ban religion.

Religious commandments have no place in a court house.

By de facto theocracy I was talking about attempts, some successful, to use religion as an excuse for bigoted legislation. It took the Supreme Court to kick malicious backward state governments out of private bedrooms.

Religion is a private matter, and has no place as dominion in law. Having to tolerate the existence of same sex marriage and the law defending people from malicious bigots isn't oppression.

Let's just end the conversation here, this isn't going anywhere.

I'm tired and I'm sure everyone else is tired of this topic now.

Censorship to please losers. The problem in principle is the argument, not because any of us give a god damn about them being covered up.
