Another example of the enabling religious posters pretend does not exist

Are a majority even in TX young earth creationists? No.

Are a majority even in TX anti-science fundies? No.

But a majority vote for any asshat who is because he says "Christian" a lot and dammit they're Christians too!

And even the minority that didn't vote for him simply recoil in gloating hand-wringing horror at the militancy of atheists when anyone suggests ridiculing this intentionally ignorant destroyer of education for his entirely Christianity-derived and Christianity-motivated harmful lunacy. By protecting him from the abuse and laughing scorn he so richly deserves for his deeply held religious beliefs (lest they start to feel a tad self-conscious about how much their own differ in both degree and especially quality) they add a veneer of respectability to his madness, and serve as willing human shields for his intellectual terrorism hideout of "faith".
