Christian fundamentalists are driving our country into the Dark Ages

I also describe these religious fundies as flat-earthers who deny the evidence of science and even the existence of evidence.   I don't have the education to say for certain, but it seems the flat-earthers are the ones suffering from a mental disease.  Why else the fixation on punishment and privation and the relentless focus on the most distressful tales of their old testament bible?

clip So why is it that the so-called “values voters” are urged to vote against the politician who supports choice, not the politician who wants to shred that “circle of protection” for the poor and vulnerable? Why is it that when politicians want to demonstrate just how religiously righteous they are, they talk about banning same-sex marriage and making contraceptives hard to get, instead of showing what they have done to protect the weak?
