Let us remember that “back then” when Roe vs. Wade was decided by a largely Republican-appointed Supreme Court was 1973, not 1860. Penelope ’s point is worth thinking about, if only because it reminds us of how much today’s Republican Party has been captured by, or panders to, those fanatic evangelicals who call Democrats “mass murderers.” These are the manic preachers Goldwater warned Republicans about.
Of course fanatical evangelicals are not the only constituent base of today’s Republicans. But southern white evangelicals are the one base that other “Republicans,“ even complete opportunists like the non-believer Trump, will never ever criticize openly. This is one reason for the dramatic corruption and decent into irrational hate politics of today’s ever more cultish GOP.
What are you talking about? I'll criticize them in a heartbeat if they do or say something I think is wrong.
