All this far-right hate propaganda reminds me of

what the Church did in the Middle Ages: a constant barrage of this-is-bad that-is-bad you-should-not-do-this bullshit dumped on the uneducated masses to rein them into supporting the institution. The funny thing is, the Church depended on the masses being uneducated (and encouraged it) to avoid people questioning their "teachings."

The first universities during this period were run by the Church, and it was a matter of finding the bright (or gullible) ones, bringing them into the fold, and keeping them there to help spread the word and control the money.

So far the repukes haven't started talking about hell and excommunication, but I wouldn't be surprised if they bring those up one of these days. Heck, right now they have some evangelicals swallowing the bait.

I was raised Catholic and attended parochial schools and church for a long time, so I think I can safely say this.
