Today is the national day of prayer in the US and President Obama has decided to mark it quietly and privately. god bless him! (lol) It’s about time someone ends the tyranny of faith that has ruled Washington for far too long. The evangelical movement in the United States is an insidious force that has set the country back by decades, if not by centuries. The number of people in the country who do not believe in evolution or climate change is shocking. There are thousands of people who think that dinosaurs walked the earth with humans. Crazy ideas based on junk science have not only been allowed to bloom but have been encouraged by crazy laws that encourage “religious freedom”. The freedom to be ignorant. The freedom to be wrong.
Obama said in his inauguration speech that he would lift science back to its rightful place and, like it or not, part of that is keeping religion in its rightful place. In homes and churches, and out of the White House.
