Morticia, my own life bears that out. From a personal perspective, it seems that most of the obstacles I face and most of the persecution and oppression I experience in life come from conservative Christianity. We see it so clearly in Trump and the current political regime. Conservative Christians are coming into power and they’re just evil and vicious about it. I don’t know. I know I have a particular point of view because I’m one of those depraved perverts conservative Christians revile, but looking at things from a wider perspective, I still can’t help but observe how evil conservative Christians are in general. They stomp on everybody who doesn’t subscribe to their particular religious idea. And they’re relentless and smarmily judgmental about it. And it’s getting worse. The more power they get, the harder they work to hurt people.
