The destructive myth about religion that Americans disproportionately believe

From the article:  ”Isn’t it time to save the South from itself, and/or to save America from the South? These studies and the current political zeitgeist remind us that it’s the religious South that continues to hold the country in some kind of 1860s time warp. While the more secular America is trying to deal intelligently with real problems — taxes, spending, environment, healthcare, education, inequality, and poverty – the South is rooted in religious fanaticism, ancient grudges and demagoguery.”

New theme!

I thought it would spice up the blog a bit. What do you think?

Brief History Lesson:

John Harvey Kellogg, devout Christian, was the inventor of Corn Flakes. It is well known he condemned all forms of sexuality, even within marriage. He wrote books on the sins of sexuality, especially masturbation. He worked on one of these books on his honeymoon, and the marriage was never consummated. It is thought he invented Corn Flakes to help curb sexual appetite. He helped “rehabilitate” young boys and girls guilty of masturbation. Most of it was close to mutilation, like electroshock therapy to the genitals and applying acid to a girl’s clitoris.
