  •  Thanks for saying that. (5+ / 0-)

    It's good to know I'm not the only one who's seeing this kind of reaction.

    It's a serious problem.

    •  It is interesting that you bring up the cult (4+ / 0-)

      deprogramming idea because I was just thinking along the same lines myself recently.  As I mentioned above, my housemate's severe reactions to anything that questions or invalidates his long held beliefs is very similar to that of cult members being confronted with their beliefs.  I have experienced these same reactions from other Republicans as well.  It is really somewhat scary if you think about it.  Best wishes.
