18. Right wing evangelicals are pretending to be intentionally stupid, or uniformed about this

...just as they pretended to be stupid about Sen. David Vitters' extramarital diaper romps with hookers.

It does not fit with what they choose to BELIEVE (kinda like global climate change), and so they choose to pretend it is not real, or that they do not know.

Hindus have a word for that: avidia, I believe, which means "not wanting to know."
