    Add in a little Calvinism, Revivalist, and Adventist and you're getting close. Fire and brimstone. Rapture. Anti-Christ. All that nonsense.

    The Seminary is the Denver Seminary during the reign of Vernon Grounds, a relatively unknown far right wing evangelist who started out as a Presbyterian, if you can imagine. The major shift to political activity in the Southern Baptist Conference is indirectly due to his distorted views.

    The Baptist label is rather meaningless in this context. It's just where some of this stuff started. The "Kill the Gays" movement isn't labeled as Baptist, for example. Rick Santorum, Sarah Palin, Michele Bachman, etc. The list is long.

    Paul Ryan is the Wisconsinite who claims to be Catholic but doesn't seem to actually understand Catholic teachings. He's not an evangelical. He's just a juvenile Ayn Randian wannabe.

    Snotty Walker is the son of a preacher, Llewellyn Walker, who is/was employed as Snotty's evangelical campaign outreach director. The larger picture just gets worse.
