“Within our culture we have a sub-culture which is literally a fifth column of insanity that is bred from birth through home school and Christian school to evangelical college to reject facts as a matter of faith.”

    And one of them ran for school board locally. Batshit crazy. Homeschooled. Wanted to infect the schools with theological insanity. Voters said…buzz off!

    And Mr Schaeffer has restricted himself to the Christian idiots. There are more out there – it’s scary.

    Spot on! Concise, clear and to the point. I could not have put it better myself.

    Fifth column of insanity, I will have to remember that one, a more fitting description of the religious right I have never heard.

    Bred like worker drones for the pleasure of the patriarchs of the faith. Warren Jeffs took this idea to the ultimate extreme.

    Is belonging to a group so much more important than intellectual honesty and freedom?

    now THERE , my little friend, is a VERY interesting

    question. quick answer is YES………for some.

    longer answer wants to know WHY . please let me

    organize some thoughts………..and answer you later.

    might not be today………my always weak constitution

    is kickin’ my ass. but sometime soon. may have to

    curl up with my old pal Jack Daniels to find the

    strength !!!

    best always.

    R j,

    When you organize your thoughts, would you mind also organizing your reply format? I find many of your comments interesting but very difficult to read because of the way you split up your lines. I imagine that you proof-type this in an editor that inserts line breaks when you cut-paste into the browser. Most text editors do not do this, however, so maybe you could try a different one? …or just type it straight into the browser?

    Cheers!
