Franklin Graham Against Interfaith Prayer

Agape Press reports that Franklin Graham has weighed in against our Interfaith Days of Prayer (here and here).

Like Dobson and most other leaders of the Religious Right who wrongly proclaim that the U.S. is a "Christian Nation," they only want liberty for their own brand of religion.

Yet more justification for the use of the term "religious supremacist", to describe individuals who subscribe to this sort of bigotry.

Credit for that term, by the way, may have to go to Frederick Clarkson.

I like it for the appropriate resonance with the term "white supremacist"

Or perhaps something like
"judeo-christo supremacist" that ought to distinguish them from anyone who is properly either Jewish or Christian.

I use religious supremacy in the same sense as racial supremacy.

When the context requires it, I also use Christian supremacy, but I tend to avoid it because there are so many kinds of Christianity, it is often problematic.
