From the article---
"One nominee proposed reclassifying single parenthood as child abuse. Another suggested that four “blood moons” would herald “world-changing, shaking-type events” and said Islam was not a religion but a “complete geopolitical structure” unworthy of tax exemption. Still another labeled Hillary Rodham Clinton “the Antichrist.”...Then there is Mr. Hice. Having once called evolution a lie from “the pit of hell,” Mr. Broun, the departing representative from Georgia, would be hard to beat on the inflammatory front. But Mr. Hice has a record. He once said of women in politics, “If the woman’s within the authority of her husband, I don’t see a problem. ”...He compared the recent appearance of red “blood moons” to prophecies that preceded the expulsion of the Jews from Spain, Israeli statehood and the Arab-Israeli War of 1967. In a satirical book, he claimed he had found a homosexual agenda to “sodomize your sons” by seducing them “in your schools, in your dormitories, in your gymnasiums, in your locker rooms. "
The views you read above are of people likely to be sitting in the majority caucus of the United States House of Representatives after the November elections. And these extremists are in many respects well in-tune with the people they represent in their districts.
What we should do with our Republican elected officials is start to define them as moderate Christians or Christian extremists, just like we do when we discuss various Islamic groups in whatever Muslim country we are bombing and invading at the moment.
These folks are as extreme and as dangerous as any foreign religious warriors and jihadists. We should call them out for just what they are.
