  •  They Destroy Science (0+ / 0-)

    America's zealots delete books from curricula because they include evolution, Big Bang and other science that threatens their superstitions. They force the EPA to delete science about climate change that threatens their superstitions. They force the CDC to ignore science about gun violence that threatens their superstitions.

    Burning books, stopping research: there's little difference in the effects of spreading ignorance at the insistence of tyrannical religious zealots and the power grabbers who lead them.
