Subject: RE: BS: The problem at Mudcat? Moderated thread
Crow Sister, I don't see a great deal either, and I don't think I've ever seen anything like you describe from what we'd call the religious right - perhaps I follow the wrong threads. What I do see, from what appears to be a very small number of very outspoken, very left, right-ponders, is this thought process: Conservative Christians are all right-wingers...all right-wingers are against social welfare programs and are bigots...therefor all Christians are bigoted anti-progressives. Then you add in the second great leap of logic - that since the majority of Americans say that they are Christians of one variety or another, most Americans are bigoted anti-progressives. Of course, the logic trail is flawed at every step, but that doesn't help matters much.
