I joke about Satanism a lot.
But as Alex Wagner pointed out this morning on MSNBC - - we are currently considering a serious candidate for U.S. president who spent most of last week frothing at the mouth about an impending attack on our nation by an actual (not imaginary) Satan, and how birth control and family planning are just as bad as the wanton killing of live babies.
If you were born in the 1990s, let me tell you: 
During the nineties, if you did not know HTML, CSS and C++, your chances of having a boyfriend or girlfriend were slim to none.  I exaggerate, obviously, but it is true nonetheless that smart people prospered, mathematics and science drove our economy, and people like Santorum hid in creepy mountain monster castles where they read Jack Chick pamphlets by candlelight.
20 years later we are painfully aware of what happens when Creationists are allowed to talk at school board meetings.
Welcome to the Intentionally Ignorant States of America.  Two nations, shamefully uneducated, with fact-based textbooks for kids lucky enough to live outside of Kentucky.
