  •  Right, I get the doctrinal difference (5+ / 0-)

    but in terms of social behavior, there's no telling these two groups apart.

    I hope that this election serves as a Scopes-esque referendum on their belief system and sends them slinking away from politics for at least another two or three generations.

    •  there's not really a social-behavior difference as (4+ / 0-)

      both groups foundation is bible-as-literal-word-of-god.

      the only doctrinal diff is evangelicals are willing to work with the church across the street that believes only roc'n' roll since the Beatles is evil as opposed to everything not Patsy Cline.

      I grew up 'immersed' in fundie culture and it was crazy the way my mom's church would refuse to work on anything regardless of social value with even other baptist churches that held a slight theological difference, let alone Lutherans or 7th Day Adventists or whatever.

      to republicans rape is "God's will" but homosexuality is somehow a "choice". republican yahweh is a dick.
