Quotes from The American Taliban
Things various American conservatives have said. These people are _scary_.

“When science and the Bible differ, science has obviously misinterpreted its data.” [..]
“I would like to outlaw contraception…contraception is disgusting – people using each other for pleasure.” [..]
“I’m an old-fashioned woman. Men should take care of women, and if men were taking care of women today, we wouldn’t have to vote.” [..]
“Just like what Nazi Germany did to the Jews, so liberal America is now doing to the evangelical Christians. It’s no different…More terrible than anything suffered by any minority in history.” [..]

“When I, or people like me, are running the country, you’d better flee, because we will find you, we will try you, and we’ll execute you. I mean every word of it. I will make it part of my mission to see to it that they are tried and executed.”
I’m glad I live far, far away.
