    No, Doc, not at all. It just doesn't jibe with your world view, I would surmise.

    They don't love America, they love their perception of America and hate anything that interferes with that. They see the country as a flag, a patriotic song and white people going to church. They don't understand that you can take away the flag, Washington D.C. and the Fourth of July, but you only do true damage to this country when you start monkeying around with the Constitution.

    How do you feel about them?

    People object to it because it's xenophobic religious nonsense.

    And I'd be interested--just out of curiosity--what "similar stuff"--if you can actually quantify it--Dems do?

    Jesus, the intellectuall bar is getting lowered every day around here.

    I now have no doubt that these people would rather have a Christian theocracy than a democracy.

    And much of what you spout, JR, can be seen as nonsense, too, by people who do not share your world view. Anyone who disagrees with your world view gets dismissed as stupid or accused of lowering the "intellectuall" bar.

    And no, I don't think a theocracy is what "these people" want. I think you might just want them to want that because it makes for a much more assailable target.

    Differently than what? Depending on what?

    Differently depending on different things.

    I haven't met a great deal of them.

    Give me an example of my nonsense because this little ditty is Monty Python worthy.

    And just out of curiosity, what is your world view?

    Absurd evangelical hokum like ths?

    Or maybe you believe in Creationism.

    Let me know
