But what's just as loopy is the Democratic ethos of atheist arrogance. Don't forget that the people who have managed to turn atheism into a religion unto itself are just as fanatical as those who vote in the opposite direction.
The last republican president G.W.Bush was one of the biggest religious retards out there totally shunning science. In particular stem cell research which shows so much promise in ending or alleviating suffering for so many. Not to mention their stance on marijuana which could also help millions.
