Keep this one handy for the next time someone claims that we’re a Christian nation and always have been. It will also be useful in helping your libertarian friends and family to understand a bit more of that movement’s history; i.e., how they are actually in many ways the spawn of an ugly marriage between corporatists who were losing the public relations battle with progressives and religious leaders like Pat Robertson who gladly became their toadies by cherry-picking the Bible in order to justify greed, corruption, and the treatment of other human beings as disposal assets. You know. Objectivism.

Proud middle class husband, father, and progressive liberal. Registered Non-Partisan but have much more in common with Democrats than Republicans. Consider Libertarians to be immature and underdeveloped in their understanding of reality. An atheist who doesn't care what you believe so long as you stop pretending the Founding Fathers intended for you to legislatively force your beliefs on everyone else. Laughs out loud in mocking disdain at the abject lunacy of birthers, climate science deniers, and hard core tea partiers. If that offends you, too bad. You're not rational and have no place at the adult table.
