My Worst Nightmare

These people, the Christian Reconstructionists, AKA the American Taliban, are genuinely frightening because they've become so accepted. What's worse, I live just down the street from one of their madrassas, the Fairview Christian School. Creepier still, this Christian School is my polling place. Ick. Whatever happened to separation of church and state?

The article on Reconstructionists is worth your time. "How many outsiders know the depth and specificity of Reconstructionist political indoctrination in these schools? For example, Patrick Henry College in Purcellville, Virginia, a college exclusively for Christian homeschoolers, offers programs in strategic government intelligence, legal training and foreign policy, all with a strict, Bible-based “Christian worldview.” Patrick Henry is so heavily funded by the Christian right it can offer classes below cost. In the Bush administration, seven percent of all internships are handed out to Patrick Henry students, along with many others distributed among similar religious rightist colleges."

How is this worldview even sustainable in the modern world?

Well that'll work only if their version of god is really the one in charge. In my version, a giant hand pokes down out of the heavens and flicks those self-important scolds into eternal damnation with His powerful middle finger.
