Like I say, my knowledge of American politics is very limited, so I'm mostly just asking questions to learn more. The thing that pisses me off about the states being full of religious zealots is the fact that it holds back the human race. You're one of the richest countries in the world, with a large mass of brains to pool ideas and scientific research, but when religion comes in the way of that, I find that insanely disgusting. My only notable examples are that Stem Cell research seems to be hindered greatly by a great outcry of religious wankers. And you also teach Creationism in a biology class in some states. That's abhorrent.
We can put on top hats and monocles and make fun of the English.
