    to see this. And for a poltical party to be faith based is at odds with one of the core tenets of the Constitution that there is no religious test to hold office.

    Talk about a fundamental threat to democracy, it is the GOP it is current form.

    When religion and politics travel in the same cart, the riders believe nothing can stand in their way. Their movement becomes headlong – faster and faster and faster. They put aside all thought of obstacles and forget that a precipice does not show itself to the man in a blind rush until it’s too late.
    An axoim from Dune, but it holds true.

      Sharia law is a prime example. The imaginary threat created by 0.6% of the population? Fuck me.

      But, Rushdoony and Eidsmoe hold the same contemptible goals, just with a different title. To make things worse, senatewhores and congresscritter really REALLY believe their crap.

      What we call god is merely a living creature with superior technology & understanding. If their fragile egos demand prayer, they lose that superiority.

      It's a pillar of their faith that the constitution means anything they want it to mean.

      Just like it's a pillar of faith the the Bible means anything they want it to mean.

      Don't forget Atlas Shrugged, somehow tossed in the mix as well.

      It's so evil, the twisted labyrinthine structures such a foundation builds, that one can't help but admire how intricately sinister it all winds up being.
