Fineman: Fear of God

Howard Fineman is horrified over the idea that Paul Ryan might turn to faith before science in developing policy ideas.

They're not going to shut him up if he gets into the White House, I can assure you...

It's not just Paul Ryan, continues Fineman, it's the whole GOP that's turned itself over to God.

These people start from a fundamentally different point of view from questions such as abortion, on questions such as evolution...

I was raised without faith and don't know what it's like to have a faith-based perspective. But my ignorance doesn't cause me to assume that my perspective is superior, and I'm not clear on why it should.
