How did he know?

The death earlier this week of Jerry Falwell, the founder of the so-called Moral Majority, has meant there's been a glut of articles in the papers about the other evangelical whackoes out there.

My personal favourite, if I can call him that, is Pat Robertson - the guy who believes the world's ills are down to the Illuminati - but luckily that shouldn't phase Pat as he has the power to divert hurricanes and cure AIDS.
Of course he has. He says so, right?

Here's what he has to say about feminism:

'... a socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians.'

Blimey, sisters. How did we manage to miss this guy infiltrating the movement and stealing all our secrets?

On a more serious note, these evangelical lobbyists have vast wealth and a deeply frightening amount of political power.
These are the fundamentalists we should really be afraid of.

Say what, let's hunt him down, toss him in a cauldron, hex him and then rip out his gizzard, while he's forced to watch a carnal show. That'll teach him to mess with women who actually have more than a single family brain cell.
The trick with people like this is to use their own arguments against them and quietly unpick them all.
Of course, we could just set Granny Were on him...

And don't forget the man who thinks vitamin C is a better AIDS treatment than AZT, especially if you happen to be pregnant. I shall write no more here but you can probably find him on the internet should you care to look (I don't recommend it).
