    the screamers:

    Additionally, since the Reagan era, the ARs have consistently used "socialism" to refer to ANY government action they don't like
    reminds me a lot of how fundagelicals and Religious Right types (who overlap the ARs to a great degree) cite scripture to condemn "fornication."

    And just what does fornication mean? Not in the original Greek or Hebrew, and not in the Middle Ages and not in Webster's or the OED, but functionally?

    For the fundagelicals/Religious Righties, fornication is "ANY sexual practice you are doing that I don't like/approve of."

    Same sort of one size (condom) fits all approach....

    Shalom.
