  •  It won't be that easy. (none)
    By now, the fundamentalist voters are conditioned to think that society's problems (and theirs) are due to abortion and gay marriage, fronted by the proxy of "moral decay".  Changing that association would take consistent and prolonged reassociation and re-education, and they have no incentive to look for or listen to the real answer when they think they have already found it.  One of the characteristics of the fundamentalist mind is that it's closed; another is that it's rigid.  Both are due to the latent (and sometimes not so latent) insecurity of the person who is attracted to a fundamentalist faith.

    One thing we can do, however, is play to that insecurity.  Laugh at them.  Make fun of them.  Other Christians don't really like fundamentalists either, so they'll be laughing at them too.  Don't show mercy, or pity, or remorse.  Hold them up to scorn and ridicule.

    Wouldn't it be great to have a President who did the right thing as the automatic choice instead of a grudging last resort?
