VP Mike Pence & the christian radicalisation of the US

Some may say this has been going on for years, and I guess it has. But this is the pinnacle of christian radicalism in the US at a level never before seen. Pence is choosing Trump's cabinet, no doubt why the choices he's made have sent everyone into fits of aghastness. The world is horrified at what we're witnessing over there. 
The reorganization puts the urgent task of selecting cabinet officials and key West Wing posts in the hands of Mr. Pence, whose loyalty to Mr. Trump and deep contacts with the Republican establishment on Capitol Hill are seen as critical to navigating the often politically treacherous transition period. New York Times
We're now talking about the possibility that abortion may well become illegal in the US, and fuck knows what's going to happen to vulnerable minorities such as the LGBT. The land is going to a maniac christian rule, a theocracy deserving of the middle ages and the christian crusades. A christian war against those who aren't christians, and fuck The Enlightenment.

It took humanity hundreds of years to slowly move beyond these sorts of wars, and trying to please an invisible sky man. Both sides thought they were on god's side, both fighting their own version of god's will. Secularism meant we moved past that and looked to science, logic, and proof rather than stories of talking snakes and a 6,000 year old earth.

No matter for a radical christian like Pence who believes the earth is just 6,000 years old because the bible. Facts don't matter anymore. Science is heresy because the bible. How they explain a sun a million light years away before that light reaches us is beyond me. Nope, it's all about the sky man and the book and going to war over it. Welcome America back to the Middle Ages.

Welcome US to theocratic corporate serfdom like you've never known before in the history of your nation....
