That's only ONE thing. They desperately hope a god will come down to fix all the bad stuff. Hasn't happened in the past 2000 years so there is no indication it will happen in the next 2000.
The other thing is the dumbing down of America by the religious right wing nutters who want to FORCE creationism to be taught as if it were an actual science which would confuse the hell out of young minds. It will cause the US educational system to slide that much further down the path of obscurity which we are doing our best to get to already. The US is what, number 17 or worse in educational development compared to other developed countries, now we have lost first place in the number of scientific papers published, that is already a done deal.
The religious right wing nutters don't give a rat's ass about that as long as we all go to church and just believe, trust us, we KNOW what is good for you.
Oh, of course women are second class citizens and will go down even further if the right wing religious nutters actually take over the government like they really want. Their desires go WAY past merely forcing creationism to be taught in a science classroom, their ultimate goal is to destroy evolution COMPLETELY and utterly and leave nothing BUT creationism to be taught in science classes.
Their goal is extremely clear: They want a christian version of the Islamification of the US and then if they can, the whole world.
They latch on to the 'men are worth 50 shekels, women only 30 shekels', to keep men on top of the societal totem pole, making women more of a permanent sex object. So they want to cut off 50% of the brainpower of the human race to further their sick aims.
I for one will fight those bastids tooth and nail.
Make no mistake, there is a minority of christians who are waging war on reason and I and others like me will NEVER give in to their sick agenda.
Individual christians I have nothing against. The likes of RJ Hinds and his buddies in the extreme right I will fight to the death.
Some christians actually do good. But the higher up the leadership ladder you go, the more corrupt they become. It seems to go with the territory.
Just like the KKK leaders who would say "I never told that guy to go out and kill Niggers'', but they get their point across and let the underlings do the dirty work while the leaders sit back on their thrones collecting the accolades of their crowd.
