Besonders heftig finde ich, dass diese Evangelikalen Bush ganz besonders in jedes ihrer Gebete mit einschließen. Ich habe das letztes Mal in einem Bericht über diese Bewegung gesehen. Es ging, frei übersetzt etwa so:

"Gott beschütze George Bush und gebe ihm die Kraft, die Ungläubigen von ihrem Fehlen zu erlösen."

Das ist schon harter Tobak!

At first I thought "Christo-Fascist" was a bit extreme--after all even these social conservatives still believe, at least nominally, in the ideals of the Founding Fathers. But truth be told, that NPR segment is really on to something. For most people in the heartland, these women could be your next-door neighbor, and the views they express have become increasingly mainstream, even though practically everyone (like these women) is dissatisfied with Bush for one reason or another.

No question, fundamentalist Christianity has been politicized. But it is actually even more insidiious--there is an economic component as well. In the Dallas-FW area from which I stem, there is an oustanding correlation between fundamentalist Christianity and association with Lockheed, Halliburton, or a related military-industrial corporation. The poor kids go to Iraq, while the college kids join the College Republicans and start building Boeing planes after graduation.

"call "Christo-Fascist fervor". This group - estimated to be about 11% of the American voting population"

11% of Americans are fascists?
Do you mean they have real fascists believes, or are you reprocitating against conservatives' blabberings against "Islamofascists"?

Why is the "Bush cult" so big? What are the reasons for this development?

I just wrote about the entirely different perception of Bush and Kerry voters and quoted a PIPA report called "The Separate Realities."

Sure, there have been always sharp political disagreements, but why is there such a cultural civil war between liberals and conservatives to the extend that there are separate realities?

The cult of the executive leader on the expense of the judiciary:

Guardian: "Former top judge says US risks edging near to dictatorship"

O'Connor said: "It takes a lot of degeneration before a country falls into dictatorship, but we should avoid these ends by avoiding these beginnings."
