    This is just one of the many daily assaults by the right-wing to destroy rational understanding of complex issues. Be skeptical of initial reports of everything by anyone especially conservatives and their supporters.

    Belief in a "god", an activity without an atom of supporting evidence, nevertheless should be a personal and private activity. It should not intrude in governmental actions per the constitution, and is also divisive elsewhere.

    Believers have never respected this restriction, working endlessly to drench this country (and everywhere else) in what they believe is necessary for all others to believe. History is replete with the horrors of wars and other vicious actions by believers to force obedience to their delusions. Iran and the Taliban in Afghanistan are current prime examples of the horrors of theocracy.

    We now have judges and politicians openly using the bible/religion to make decisions. Rationality, objectivity, a passion for equal justice has largely disappeared in the activities of the country where it is needed the most.

    This is a pernicious disease, ultimately toxic to any society. It is a by-product of conservatism, and enabled by others, who have been brainwashed to believe religion is a necessary good for everyone.

    It is not.

    That something without evidence can motivate so many to do vicious harm to others is unbelievably frightening. Only a few sources expose this persistent danger. Religious belief in those who want to force their hallucinations on others is behind all of the greatest threats to mankind.
