What is wrong with these people?

A new poll shows that fewer Americans view the Republican Party as “friendly to religion” than a year ago, with the decline particularly steep among Catholics and white evangelical Protestants — constituencies at the core of the Republicans’ conservative Christian voting bloc.

The survey found that the proportion of Americans who say the Republican Party is friendly to religion fell 8 percentage points in the last year, to 47 percent from 55 percent. Among Catholics and white evangelical Protestants, the decline was 14 percentage points.


(The pollster) speculated that religious conservatives could feel betrayed that some Republican politicians recently voted to back stem cell research, and that a Republican-dominated Congress failed to pass an amendment outlawing same-sex marriage.

What the hell?

The sleazy Republicans cravenly jump through hoops for these religious nuts – from chipping away at abortion rights, to bashing gays, from trying to get prayer in public school classrooms, to denigrating the teaching of evolution – and it's STILL not enough for the freaks?

I seriously wish all the religious fanatics in the world – the crazy Muslims, and our own home-grown Christian variety - would just go and live on a big island far, far away from civilization, hell, give them an isolated country all to themselves somewhere, and let them live with their wacky religious beliefs, with all the restrictive laws and fear of sex and outright bigotry they want – and leave the rest of us the fuck alone.

And then, when they finish killing each other, we can make the land an animal sanctuary.

I nominate JBK to be the first to go to his island. It;s people with stupid views like that, that are really the source of the problems in this world. It's his type of thinking that causes all the trouble. I really hate ignorant assholes. Man do they suck.
