Do You Know Who Launched the Shutdown? Hint: He’s Southern, a Birther, White and an Ardent Evangelical Who Serves as an Elder in His Fundamentalist Church

Do you know who launched the shutdown? Hint: He’s Southern, white and an ardent evangelical who serves as an elder in his fundamentalist church. His name is Mark Meadows. Watch this news clip about him. It explains all you need to know about why it’s a bad idea to have ardent evangelicals run for national office. They just don’t live in a fact-based world.

Of course America is on the brink because of religiously deluded conviction. Here’s my friend Rachel Maddow giving a great explanation of the inexplicable actions of the Meadows and his Republican dupes. What Rachel didn’t say  is that the root of the magical thinking on the right is delusional evangelical theology. Find out where the idiot goes to church before you cast that vote! I guess I’m pretty tuned in to the price we pay for electing myth-based leaders and their recent congressional folly because of writing my new book and thereby unpacking the insanity of the fundamentalist American subculture– And God Said, “Billy!”

Watch this:

Frank Schaeffer is a writer and author of And God Said, “Billy!” on Kindle and NOOK for $3.99 and in paperback too.
