BUT that is changing and my tolerance is disappearing as more and more I feel threatened by religiosity that spouts pious phrases (while too often living anything but pious lives) and wants to push that onto me through laws. The desire among some is to go back to Puritanism and here is the kind of thing that makes me worry it just might happen.
If you have known very many people on a personal level who talk like these two, you know their personal lives often show anything but what they claim in public. Not to say it's true with today's crop of right wing religious leaders; but even if they live those pious lives, what they want to push onto me, the government they want to dismantle to replace with something new of their own invention (of course, actually their concept of god's invention), well that makes me worry.
I hope anyone thinking of voting for those of this mindset (read above article), will consider that no matter what they say, their religious views will be primary in their decisions and right after that will be profiting the rich. I think this should be a very scary time for anybody from either party as when one party becomes the tool of an extreme religious view, the other party feels they need to be less responsible for what they do-- as though, of course, people won't vote for this. Look around the world and through history for how that worked out in the past!
Is this how far the right will take this?
And if it is, will government pensions be any safer with the current court?
