    They can have their religious views; I don't give a flying fig if they worship their own big toe..., but I don't see any good reason for them to whack me over the head with their beliefs or start yelling at me and telling me I have to believe their way, or worship their big toe with them.

    I have my own thoughts on the matter of religion, tyvm, and I don't have any deep-seated need to talk about them or why I have them.  It's a waste of my time because invariably someone will want to argue about what took me 25/30 years of reading and study to come to conclusions about.

    I don't want to argue, nor try to convert anyone to my way of thinking.  I just want them to STFU and leave me alone.  I really don't care how they see the world or why they believe as they do.  It's none of my business and I don't want to walk a mile in their shoes to try to think like them.

    Their "side" is irrelevant to me because it's based on belief in an invisible being, and they try to back up their "beliefs" with controlling other people or wanting legislators to make laws based on their opinions of the beliefs they have in this invisible being so they can then control other people via force of law because their brainwashing efforts have failed to gain converts.

    Essentially I agree with Mark Twain.

      religious fanatical extreme cohorts in the GOP simply need to be defeated and crushed. There are a few who are reachable, but that's very rare, and I have no patience for trying to for trying to open their minds that are so closed. But I do like to understand how they function, I think it's important to understand that, it helps in trying to defeat them as well.
