What Is A "Relig-idiot"?

By Marc Platt

I made up a new word, but you know exactly what it means: "Relig-idiot."

Why do politicians and many "public servants" find it necessary to persecute non-believers while compaining that THEY are the ones being persecuted?

Why do men and women give money to these zealots?

If you keep encouraging them, they will keep taking advantage of your "faith."

Ted Cruz has done little, if anything in the way of policy as a U.S. Senator. He has raised holy hell in the GOP to the extent that he is hated by most of his own caucus. He was responsible for the $24 billion 2013 government shutdown. That shutdown was due to the GOP's hatred of affordable health care for millions of U.S. citizens.

Let me repeat that. The Republicans shut the government down because President Obama wanted to make sure people with pre-existing conditions could be insured, etc...

Now Senator Cruz wants another government shutdown because he and his co-horts are against women's health care. Yes, my friends...Planned Parenthood is evil, according to the Republicans. Never mind the fact that only 3% of Planned Parenthood deals with abortions and not ONE CENT of taxpayer's money goes to abortions.

Mike Huckabee, Louie Gohmert, Ben Carson, Scott Walker, Bobby Jindal and Carly Fiorina are among many who support shutting the government down to defund Planned Parenthood.

This brings me to Marriage Equality and the use of the term "Religious Persection." It appears that the Republican Party thinks Christians are being persucuted and they are raising money off of that fact.

This Kim Davis Affair in Kentucky has become their cause celebre.

A "Relig-idiot" is anyone who persecutes "Non-Believers" while insisting THEY are the ones being persecuted.

I really don't even need to go through all the gruesome details about how this woman and these politicians are acting like "Relig-idiots" because you already know the answer, right?
