Well, isn't THAT just a knee to the happy sack?


Oh, this is delightfully delightful. Quickly now ... who do you think we're talking about here?

They are vehemently against abortion, they resist progressive woman's rights. They view homosexuality as a crime against nature and God, some advocate the death penalty as an option for it. Separation of Church and State is despised by these folks; they insist the nation is founded on the principles of their religion, and they work hard to bring that de facto theocracy about. They deplore strong language, gay characters, and sexual content on TV and in the media. And they ignore the Geneva Convention when it suits their ideological purposes, including provisions against torture or due process. They're anti-stem cell research, pro-creationism, and generally distrustful of science. These folks are easily whipped into a state of frenzy with ideological manipulation to the point where they will commit violence, or at least tacitly endorse that violence is acceptable, if it advances their Divine agenda. They then take great pains to justify that violence, including unprovoked attack of civilian areas, under certain conditions, with convoluted theological gymnastics. They are almost to the man pro-death penalty ...

Think you know? Heh ... the envelope, please.

Man, that's gotta be awkward.

P.S. Note that, while that original article is over two years old, it's only gotten truer since then.

I guessed correctly. I'm a fucking genius.

But that is beautiful.

Two sides of the same coin.
Exactly!

Anyone else notice that as soon as the US put a Christofascist government in power, they were attacked by Islamofascists on 9-11?

You see, they reasoned that if we will willingly submit to one theocracy, we would submit to another. In other words we emboldened them.

Christofascists belong at the periphery, shouting from their soapboxes, but otherwise ignored.

If they were marginalized here, then the Islamofascists would be marginalized there. You know, fight them and what they stand for here, so we don't have to fight what they stand for there.
