1. The two Republican candidates in 2012, belong to Christian cults: Mormonism, and the Embryo Cult
1) Romney is a Mormon. A rather strange, cultic group, in exile in Utah somewhere.
2) Santorum is a member of the new, EWTN/Pro Life, anti-abortion, embryo cult. That used to be the Catholic Church. But that is now the Apostate Church of Holy Embryo. With the embryo as its God, its fetish, its cult object; and embryo-worship as its new core.
I guess nothing excites the religous impulse, or pushes the RELIGION button harder, than zealotry, or extremism.
