I was over at Mad Mike's America rooting around this morning and almost choked on my coffee when I came across this info-graphic. Nothing like simple, black and white, fear-based, authoritarian thinking to keep the peasants on the straight and narrow, is there? Mad Mike made a few comments on it that are worth reading and I'd like to make a few more.
You can believe what you want. You can base your beliefs on your interpretation of the bible if you want. Just don't try to impose your narrow views on the rest of your fellow citizens. Vote for whomever you wish-- just don't try to make your religious views the law of the land. - The rest of us, who live in the real world, require more objective proof than your interpretation of a few bible verses.
In case you haven't noticed, the science is pretty much in on climate change, evolution and the notion that the world is round not flat. You can ignore and deny that and call it religious faith. It's your right as an American-- but don't defend your beliefs on the basis of the bible. Need I remind you that, that poor book has been twisted to justify such evils as slavery , racism, sexism, war, and xenophobia for hundreds, if not thousands of years, so most of us are not buying your claims.
Because you live in a free society, you are free to be as narrow-minded as you like. Just don't try to impose your narrow-mindedness on your fellow citizens and call it Christianity. I'm fairly sure your version is not what Jesus was thinking-- but never mind. He loves you anyway.
