Theocracy Now: In Search of Values
Leave it to Max Blumenthal to enter the belly of the evangelical beast and come out with video evidence of just how loony the Christian right really is. Max waded into the craziness of the recent Value Voters Summit to videotape the holier than thou crowd in their natural habitat.
At the summit each of the major Republican candidates did the typical “I am more of a right-wing troglodyte than the other guys.” song and dance with candidates like Mike Huckabee saying that banning abortion would solve America’s immigration problem and Mitt Romney pledging to fight for a constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage.
Among the lunatic ravings of the Christian evangelical mind that Max uncovers are:
Lou Sheldon: Homosexuality is a psychological imbalance.
Star Parker: Abortion is the number one killer of Black women ages 25-34.
Brandon Vallorini: Under a Christian order there would be no more public schools.
Check out Max’s report and thank God that he braved the nuttiness so that you didn’t have to.
