Full Video of Republican Theocratathon November 22, 2011

Last weekend the Republican candidates met for the “Thanksgiving Family Forum” where, except for Ron Paul, they each tried to prove they were the holiest Christian and, therefore, the most deserving candidate for president of our theocracy democracy. The actual discussions with the candidates do not start until 36 minutes in.

And, as Jerry Coyne helpfully points out, those who do not have the endurance to watch the whole disgusting anti-American mess, can get a digest of awfulness by reading William Saletan’s collection of salient quotations from the evening.

My detailed arguments about what is wrong with the sorts of attitudes these candidates express are in the following posts:
