2. I can only assume it results from mental illness.
Isn't "psychosis" a disconnect from reality? These people believe a whole brainful of things that sound crazy to us because they are so obviously false, the stuff of dreams and fancy.

If there were a cult that believed that Santa Claus is real, offering prayers to him, taking pilgrimages to what's left of the North Pole, dressing as elves in fealty to their god, etc., everyone would recognize that the cult members must be crazy or brainwashed in some way. They would be marginalized.

Why, then, does the Normal Majority not recognize that these Dominionist Christianists represent a cult with beliefs much farther out than any Santa Claus cult could ever be? And much more harmful to our nation, our world, and our planet!

Why are these crazies allowed to control our country rather than being marginalized? I truly don't get it.
