    We Would Be In Big Trouble If Those Guys Ever Got Into Power

    History tells us what happens when people like this get into power.  In ancient Pagan Society, the kings deified themselves, and killed humans offering them to their gods.  In Medieval Europe, the Church murdered and tortured anyone who did not absolutely conform to the Pope...

    Considering the whole fundamentalist system is

    completely rigged to begin with. In their whole belief system, most of humanity goes to hell, and a small number goes to heaven. They believe it, and there is nothing in their mind that can change that. So we know right off the bat that their political motivation has nothing...

    Peddle That Pudding Elsewhere, Please

    The rise of the religious right, in combination with extreme political conservatism, is one of the most profoundly distrubing developments of recent decades.  When people who are allowed to vote and drive cars want so-called "Creationism" taught in schools as...
