The ELECTION exposed it ... but the religious right equates rhetoric
with a stance.  you really have to understand the rr mind: the word of
god is unchanging, speaking the word is powerful, any information that
contradicts the word or the speaker of the word is of the devil and is
used to undermine the power of god.

it's real difficult to counter the reinforced willfulness of this
socially sanctioned self deception.

He's against judicial activism except when he's, um, for it.

This case really is exposing a lot of the religious right's
rhetoric.
