Introduction

Topic Overview

Avoiding godless communism. This is done by promoting prayer in school, believing climate change is a hoax, opposing abortion, supporting American exceptionalism, and generally only caring about one’s own needs. Screw everyone else, it’s all about me. Perhaps American Conservatism is actually a personality disorder like sociopathy. And how can we so reliably predict what a person’s stance on climate change is by knowing where they stand on same-sex marriage? Isn’t this tribe mentality? How far have we regressed? And since when was Jesus a conservative for Christ’s sake?
