Christofascists!

Brilliant at Breakfast: Here's what we're dealing with, folks: "Now, this is not even REMOTELY like the Terri Schiavo case. This is a soldier with a living will stating explicitly what his wishes were -- and the wingnut lunatics STILL won't leave his family alone after they did what he would have wanted.

These people are despicable. They are not Christians, they are fascists. They believe that their will overrides that of the person who created the living will. They would impose their insane wishes on the rest of us, and they have to be stopped. And we cannot rely on Republicans, who refuse to speak out against their bullying tactics, to stop them."

I couldn't agree more with what Jill says here except for the statement, "They are not Christians". Stop trying to "reclaim" religion as really a good force hijacked by evil and assign it to the dustbin of history. Good or bad it's still mistaken about reality, and since there are no external empirical facts to measure against what really is and is not a Christian, the statement is meaningless rhetoric.

Nod to TBogg.
