A woman can't be trusted with decisions about her own body, but corporations can make decisions affecting millions without regulation. Jesus loves you, and shares your hatred of homosexuals. If condoms are kept out of schools, adolescents won't have sex. Global warming is junk science, but creationism should be taught in schools. Driving up the deficit to fund a war based on lies will keep us safe, passing health care legislation that is cost effective and makes health care more affordable to Americans, is socialism.
It just makes no sense, does it?
What leads to this state of affairs in the GOP? An unwillingness to question their religious biases? Let's face it: religion is a key element in most of their platform these days. There is even a book on the market that makes the case that capitalism is God's own plan. And if you think the Iraq invasion thing is out of place in my suggestion, just recall that President W originally referred to his "war on terror" as a crusade. Although he later went out of the way to make the case that American is not at war with Islam, the Republican base clearly is.
Here is my take: modern Republicans = Christian Supremacists (with very few exceptions).
