With this article, we see that it is now acceptable in polite society to bash Christian believers and their religiosity. This is a mainstream pundit speaking in the Washington Post:
Some of the juiciest quotes include:
- “the evangelical, right-wing, oogedy-boogedy branch of the GOP is what ails the erstwhile conservative party and will continue to afflict and marginalize its constituents if reckoning doesn’t soon cometh.”
– “Armband religion is killing the Republican Party.”
– “[the GOP] has become increasingly beholden to an element that used to be relegated to wooden crates on street corners.”
– “the GOP has surrendered its high ground to its lowest brows.”
Given those facts, the future of the GOP looks dim and dimmer if it stays the present course. Either the Republican Party needs a new base — or the nation may need a new party.
The only reason that Christianity has such a strong public voice is because of its stranglehold on the Republican party. But now the Republican party is recognizing – and publicly stating – that these people are idiots. The author could not be clearer: Evangelicals are the “oogedy-boogedy” “low brows” of the Republican party, according to the author. And she is right.
It will be a long process, but the idiocy and hatefulness of evangelical Christianity has finally become obvious to the general public. History will note that Religiosity reached its Zenith this year in the form of Sarah Palin. She is the spokeswoman for evangelical Christianity, and everyone outside the Christian bubble can see that she is an hate-filled idiot.
It is all downhill from here for Christianity.
The reason for Christianity’s inevitable death is obvious: God is imaginary
