I would argue that many if not most of the people representing the red states, especially the bible belt, have stated PROUDLY that these opinions are
the collective opinions of their party.
I genuinely think you're either not from a Bible Belt state, are knowingly being dishonest about typical bible-belt beliefs, or you and many of the
people who think like you become COMPLETELY delusional when confronted by people who find your bigotry abhorrent.
Yes, to an extent this is only my opinion. But this opinion was formed only after learning about Bible-Belt mentality/opinion.
Unfortunately I had to move there recently. Naturally not everyone in the Bible Belt is "like that".... But I've had enough experiences in my one
year here (like possible future landlords for apartment complexes telling me that they're fundamentalist and that people who aren't that way freak
them out and disgust them. Or people telling me that the protestors at Penn State after the child-rape was brought to light need Jesus) to realize
that this isn't being blown out of proportion.
And please, spare me from the cop-outs like "you can't blame every individual for what some of us do." I can and do, because being part of such an
organization means you support that bigotry, even if it's not directly.
You can't be part of the KKK and say that none of the guys in the KKK that YOU know have ever done anything crazy, so therefore it's not the KKK's
fault. It just doesn't work that way. And it doesn't work for religion either. Period.
