Tucked away on the bottom of page A14 in the main news section, is an article entitled "GOP contenders court evangelical Christians."
As though the Republican presidential contenders haven't already cow-towed enough to the pseudo - "religious" among us, they're now making sure that there's no misunderstanding where their allegiance stands. They're "calling for a larger role for religion in politics and warning that the country is becoming too secular." Too secular? Uh, duh...I thought the Constitution clearly states that the law of the land is based on the separation between church and state? All the candidates denounced the restricting of prayer in public schools (guess they forget the what the word "public" means?), the prohibition against pastors endorsing candidates from the pulpit, with Herman Cain even calling for changing the tax code to allow churches' involvement in politics! Then there's the nightmarish horror of the "personhood" law floated by the biggest fanatics among us. This horror would define "personhood" as beginning at conception - an instant criminilization of abortion under any circumstances and an open door for prosecution of anyone who even has a miscarriage!
Then there's Newt Gingrich's intelligent and thought-provoking statement on the Occupy Movement: "Go get a job right after you take a bath." This is a man who would be a world leader. This is the real horror story - that the ignorant, superstitious and just plain intellectually challenged should be somehow elevated to a position of legitimacy where one of them could actually take the reins of power and lead the dull and crazy into even deeper disaster than we have now.
If you're truly religious (meaning spiritual, conscious, compassionate, reasonable), start praying that this ain't so....and if you're not so inclined, do something, anything, to stop the zombie hords
