We know about these crusaders in West Bend, whether they're demanding that the public library burn books, or complaining that frightened gay teenagers are bullying them, or marshaling their troops to fight for the increasingly indictable Scott Walker and against that Islamic Kenyan Terrorist who keeps putting his feet on the desk in the Oval Office, the forces of the New Dark Ages are on the march.
Come on folks, let's hear from you! It's time for the local Christianists to come back out of the closet. You've been away too long. It's time to put up or shut up.

You should stop just taking it from these, so-called, "reasonable and educated" scientists, teachers, and academics who have managed to undermine and corrupt the old American values of ignorance and xenophobia with that whole "Enlightenment/Scientific Revolution/rational and deliberate thought" conspiracy.
Mary, Ginny. Let's dance again, like we did last summer.
