And that's an open question and when you see a bunch of people going around thinking that our President is the antichrist you have to draw one of two conclusions. Either these are racists looking for any excuse to level the next accusation or they're beyond crazy and I think beyond crazy is a better explanation and that evangelical subculture has rotted the brain of the United States of America. We have a big slice of our population waiting for Jesus to come back. They look forward to Armageddon. Good news is bad news to them. When we talk about the Left Behind series of books that I talk about in my book Crazy for God, what we're really talking about is a group of people who are resentful because they know they've been left behind. By modernity, by science, by education by art, by literature.

Yay, fandom theory strikes again! This time: Sedimentary Delusion.

When enough shrieking mouthpieces establish Muslim, racist, socialist, fascist and communist as the baseline, "Anti-Christ" is just the parsley sprig of crazy on the shepherd's pie of are-you-fucking-kidding-me.

"racists" and "beyond crazy" are not mutually exclusive things.

Still, good interview.

You're just trying to rile me up today, aren't you? Thank God Yo Gabba Gabba! is on or my head may explode.

Sums it up perfectly.

I do want to add that these are the same people who support Israel (and the Jews) because of their deepest belief that the Temple must be rebuildt for their end-times prophecy....not because they give a damn about the Jews. Gee, thanks, but no thanks guys.

"Loony tunes" about covers it. I wish these wilfully stupid numskulls would get *zero* media coverage, but of course they get lots and lots of free publicity for their moronic hate-fests.

This is not a rational bunch of people. By any stretch of the imagination.

Thanks for the link. It's appropriate material for my own recent musings, trying to understand why I have the feeling that Right Wingnuts are going to tip us into actual civil war.

I kinda believed the decision to leave them crazypants behind was made in the last election. :(

Sadly, no. They're still out there, with their Jesus fish bumper stickers and gunracks.
