I do get angry about the hypocrisy, lack of respect for freedom of speech, willful ignorance, and blatant dishonesty on display there. I'm extremely angry that these people can affect my life and the education of my children by voting based on their arrogantly held, essentially ridiculous beliefs.
UD is a joke. Dominionism and related movements are a threat.
I see your point Patrick, though to me, UD isn't specifically related to the greater social conservatism and an political theocracy. Sure, some of the folks who go there support those greater socio-political movements, but UD itself is really just a small gathering of small-minded, powerless, folk. I actually think the folks at UD - like, Barry, Joe, Gordo, Gil, etc. feel that the conservative, sectarian movement is failing, or at least not accomplishing the things they want. They feel powerless to put forth their real-life agendas, so they go to UD to vent and whine and feel powerful.
I just see them as pathetic and I don't take them seriously.
