James Robison's Declaration of War Against "Secular Theocracy"

This video made me laugh.  First he argues that freedom of speech would not exist without his religion.

Then he says he is not going to let people get away with criticizing the bible, which seems like the opposite of free speech to me.

Then he says "I'm not going let you literally take your secular theocracy and cram it down our throats."
Of course the use of the word "literally" when one actually means "figuratively" is a bit of a pet peeve of mine, but mostly I just wonder if he actually knows what the words "secular" and "theocracy" mean since they are a contradiction in terms, a theocracy requires that the government mandates belief in god and therefore is not secular by definition.
