The Republican Party is home to the religious right. The religious right, being religious, is the home of contraction. Only a religious person could follow someone like Jesus who, on the one hand, tells us to love one another unconditionally, but then also dictates that anyone who does not follow him will be tortured in hell for eternity.

The obvious question: why can’t these people see their own contradiction and hypocrisy when it is so obvious?
