Hyperventilate? At this level of debate?
Not really. Only when i used to used to think i was a "Conservative" until i learned the corrupted meaning Christian-Americans attach to it. History shows that religionistas of all stripes, once they achieve unfettered power, do a lot more than throat stuffing any independent thinker they stumble across. (e.g. Spanish Inquisition, Salem Witch Trials, etc)
But speaking of HYPERVENTILATING, ever notice the accelerated respiratory rate theistic Conservatives display when they find a NON-BELIEVER in their midst?
