Ok....well I'm 31, was born in Iowa, grew up in California and this isn't my first post. SO exactly how does this apply to me? Checking facts is always good before you open your mouth.
Finest poster? You are telling me that a bigot is the best we got? Really? I didn't look him up, maybe he makes Samuel Silvio look like Mary Poppins but a bigot is a bigot. Atheists are "closeted religious" people? How does that even make sense?
I don't have a problem with belief in God. We all gotta do what we think is right. I just don't see that fundamentalist-crazy is the default position. If it is...we are in deep shit.
More on topic - I think American Conservatives confuse being "Right-wing" with being "Right". Teenage pregnancy, theft, murder, rape, poor-education....red states are significantly worse in EVERYONE of these areas and are by a long shot. If Progressiveness is genetic it's clearly a step in the right direction.
