44. But do our leaders REALLY believe it?
I agree that Christian Fundamentalism is scary. But do you really believe Bush, Rove and the rest of this country's leaders genuinely believe it?

I don't buy it. I think they're apeing fundamentalism to scam votes. They do showy things, like beat up on gays and play around with anti-abortion, but genuine belief? That's for the rubes.

And a few of the Fundamentalists are starting to realize it. Bush has been unwilling to take the steps they want to see, like declaring Jesus Christ the King of America, or branding all gays on the forehead with triangles and the numbers 666 before burning them at the stake. They're starting to sound like they want to take their votes home and sit out the next election.
