Christianist Cult

"On many issues, the Republican right increasingly resembles a quasi-religious cult," writes Laurel Leader-Call columnist Gene Lyons. "GOP True Believers appear increasingly committed to an obscurantist worldview exalting 'Christianist' theology over facts, superficially mimicking real science while rejecting its methods."

Lyons, who reported the 1981 Arkansas “Creation-Science” trial, also provides an interesting perspective on the trial, including the "parade of creationist quacks and crackpots who testified."
