    It's a pattern of deeply embedded irrationality. Religion may not be the cause, but it certainly doesn't help.

      Religion, itself, encourages delusional thinking. Always has, always will.

      There's nothing much wrong with a closed mind that a closed mouth wouldn't cure.

        to a position of power and influence in the Republican Party has got to give everyone pause. Your freedom and rights are at risk. If your freedom to practice your own religion, or none at all, if your political issue is gay rights, abortion rights, minority rights, science, school prayer, the Supreme Court, etc., they are all going to be effected by electing Evangelical Christians to office; including local, state, and federal. Don't underestimate them!

        The Republican Party has been taken over by the corporatists and christian fundamentalists. The corporatists will force you into poverty, and the christian fundamentalists will force you to live under biblical law; daily gruel and scripture for all.
