Tell It Like It Is...

"Religious fundamentalists seem to have little regard for the value of rational, objective thought and scientific truth. They see the world through the Manichaean window of good and evil, and are compelled to impose their value system on their neighbors regardless of evidence, empirics or utility. To the Christian right, society's ills are caused by the general failure of people to accept Jesus as their savior. This reasoning may be valid to a person who can look back fondly on the filth, feudalism, and state of perpetual war that was Christian medieval Europe, but to those Americans who are not members of the Republican Party, science and rational thought are all that stand between 21st century America and a new Inquisition."

From a Tufts Daily editorial.
