    I'm in the early stages of grieving and I have it. It didn't make me say anything anywhere NEAR as vile as this, and I don't think anything WOULD.

    In fact, I wonder why you're trying to make an excuse for this worthless brainless person.

    •  I wouldn't call it a cognitive defect (3+ / 0-)

      so much as not being able to recognize in their minds that there's no connection between A and B. It seems to be a common problem with the more wingnutty people, all around the political spectrum.

      It's that they have no heart, no empathy - they want everybody to be the same, do the same, live the same - as long as it's like THEM.  

      Every time I hear one of these jerks I find myself thinking of the planet Camazotz from A Wrinkle in Time - everybody has to be the same, do the same, think the same - or they are punished.  They are controlled by IT, a big ol' disembodied brain who has no heart and does not know love.  IT feeds on hate and anger and despair.  IT doesn't actually think, either.  IT doesn't need to, IT just sits there and controls everybody because they let IT.  

      These people are the same way - they are full of bullshit when they say they are Christian and that they talk to God.  God is not an IT, but a bunch of these evangelical "preachers" sure act like they are channeling IT.  They are nothing but greed and hate and anger.  And stupid people who have no heart or thinking brain of their own just go right along with them.  

      FRC is just another version of WBC.  I'm beginning to think that any group that has "family" or "church" in its name is the FARTHEST thing from being interested in what "family" really means, and that these "churches" have no idea what faith, love, hope, brotherhood and family is really all about.
