Right-Wing Christian Pols: Repeal the "Law" of Gravity

Abby Zimet

With evangelical pastors and two major GOP candidates leading the charge,  the Christian activist right has never been so well-organized, well-funded and powerful. If that isn't scary enough, see the New Yorker profile of Michele Bachmann, who has given her life over to God, Biblical truth and wing-nuttery; and an imagined interview with Rick "Gravity Is Only A Theory" Perry.

Perry arguing there is no climate change despite his state's historic wildfires: "We prayed for rain."

Rose: "You prayed in April and it rained in August."

Perry: "The Lord works in mysterious ways."

Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
