Never, since I abandoned Armstrongism have I heard so much insane nonsense coming out of human mouths as I have heard since the founding of the "Tea Party!" A few of my one-time friends and fellow cultists are now staunch members of that bewildering aberration. They just can't get away from extreme approaches and simplistic (read godly) thinking.
I know they're not smoking marijuana. There's nothing "mellow" about them. Too angry. Too extreme. Too know-it-all dogmatic. Not at all tolerant of anything else but their extremist dogmatism.
So, maybe they're putting something in their tea. Could it be mushrooms or LSD?
Something is causing them to be wackier than Tasmanian Devils in a bee's nest.
I guess it's just the same old thing that afflicts the Republicans in general but carried to an extreme. They want that "Old-time Religion" and all the other old-time Dickensian crap that goes with it.
Down with Social Security! Down with Medicare! Down with anything that made America great for a few, now endangered, decades!
Up with the aristocracy and the robber barons! Up with self-agrandizment and self-centeredness!
Down with public schools -- they teach "evulooshin!" Down with any sense of public concern and welfare or helping hands for those who are poor and weak! If they aint rich, it's their fault. But, we're gonna make sure our kids git a good private, or (gasp), home schooled education and know how to properly kiss the asses of all the Bible thumping Jesus pushers.
That's the answer!
THEY'RE HIGH ON RELIGIOUS CRAP!
