Response to Major Hogwash (Reply #19)

Tue May 15, 2012, 08:09 AM

21. Your last sentence is the crux of why religious fundamentalists of any stripe want to eviscerate

the social safety net. They want people to be dependent on the church for helping with their basic needs, which gives the church leverage to exploit their spiritual needs.

And unfortunately, that common goal is why the majority of fundamentalists (who despise Mormonism as a cult) will fall into line at the voting booth and vote for Romney.
