We recommend everyone read Dangerous Rhetoric in Slate Magazine by Joel Baden and Candida Moss. It compares the shameful treatment by the media, politicians, and the public of Ebola patients Thomas Eric Duncan and Dr. Craig Spencer.

While we’re on the subject of Ebola, here’s Five Crazy Conspiracy Theories About Ebola That Conservatives Actually Believe by Brian Tashman in Right Wing Watch.
If you are wondering why right wing self-described Christian fundies are so freaking crazy, here is an interesting article that offers mental illness as an explanation. The article at Alternet is How Conservative Christianity Can Warp the Mind by Marlene Winell and Valerie Tarico.
Have a pleasant evening and let us know what you think.
