You can only live in absolute terror for so long before your mind can’t handle it any more.

True that. It’s why I got away from the wingnut style of confrontationalism: I realized that it isn’t a good way to live.

Interesting also that she said “A House divided cannot stand.”, a saying famously used by Abraham Lincoln in speeches he gave combating Southern agitation over slavery. Given the Neo-Confederate leanings of some fundies, it just struck me as curious.

I’d be willing to bet that in fundie political circles, that phrase is often used as a call for theocracy.

In this instance I am willing to bet that it had nothing to do Lincoln’s use of the phrase in a speech. Considering the rest of her statement I would wager that it instead has to do with one of the following bible verses (where Lincoln also borrowed the words from)…

Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand. - Matt. 12:25

And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand. - Mark 3:25

Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and a house divided against a house falleth. - Luke 11:17

I was point-blank told by my fundie doctor at age 16 that I would be forced to choose a religion, very soon. This was 1987 or so, and after that doctor’s visit my parents pulled all our records and we never went to see him again.

I’ve realized recently that my online persona is basically me saying FUCK YOU to that guy and his entire movement, who today are the Tea Party.

This.

They find the world around them so complicated and intolerable they implode. Sometimes, you’re the poor bastard sitting next to them in an airplane. Other times, you’re a citizen of the country they’re trying to regress. One way or another, they have a negative impact on everything around them.

Their brains are the frog in the blender.

I have a different take on this.

It’s not “crazy” that they do outbursts like this. It’s just another expression of a sense of entitlement. They get to speak for God, they get to interrupt, they get to throw insults and stand in judgement.

“God will not be mocked’ mean “I will not let my worldview be challenged.”
