Gays -- strides be damned. From the repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell to a Constitutional Amendment banning same-sex marriage (two things which already have the backing of Romney and Ryan), the Christian Right would barrel through legislation with lightning speed. Striking down "activist judges" would be much easier as well, since they would definitely have the backing of the administration. Even bullying in school would be given more of the "religious grounds" green light.

And while violence against gays has not devolved into "kill a queer for Christ", the Right's rhetoric certainly leans more towards Uganda than America:

     "Speaking during a panel discussion on Oct. 19 on the upcoming Maryland ballot initiative, Question 6, that asks votes to approve or reject the same-sex marriage law approved in the state legislature and signed by Gov. Martin O'Malley earlier this year, the Rev. Robert J. Anderson read from scripture as part of his argument against allowing same-sex unions.

     'Those who practice such things are deserving of death," Anderson said, quoting from Romans, Chapter 1. He went on to argue that if Question 6 is not defeated on Nov. 6, "then we are approving those things that are worthy of death.'

Muslims -- Michele Bachmann's witch hunts could be more prominent, Terry Jones' Q'uran burnings more frequent, and Bryan Fischer's calls for deportation more accepted. 

Other Faiths -- under the guise of "religious freedom" 

Franklin Graham

     "When America's leaders actively promote and legislate immorality, restrict the religious freedoms that our country was founded on, and are openly hostile to men and women of faith, then I believe we are ripe for God's judgment."

Franklin, of course, means Christian religious freedom. After all, is there any other kind?

Flash Mobs And Secession 

The predictions of what might happen in the next four years if Obama wins seem not to be mere predictions, but come close to wishful thinking:

"On yesterday's radio program, Bryan Fischer expounded on a tweet he sent out the other day predicting that there would be organized "flash mobs" who would loot and riot if Mitt Romney wins the election. Fischer based this theory on reports of looting in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, saying such looting "is just a preview of what's going to happen if President Obama loses the election" and warning that "there will be blood" and "civil unrest". And ... 

     "David Kupelian , the managing editor of WorldNetDaily and author of The Marketing of Evil, foresees that four more years of Obama will trigger civil disobedience and political violence, unleash rampant crime, cause a surge in depression and mental illness, and eventually elicit a "de facto secession."

He predicts inescapable civil disobedience, prompted by the outrage at abortion rights. This noncompliance could even heighten and transform into political violence, Kupelian says, cautioning that "deep down the radical left would love nothing more than to see an actual eruption of violence on "the right,' because it would serve to validate all their delusions and self-projections of hatred and violence." Kupelian believes that Obama's re-election would be comparable to the 9/11 terrorist attacks and even predicts an Obama reelection will lead to a "de facto secession," in which conservative Americans "will be able to find each other over the Internet--and if they wish, move to a common geographic location."

But Would Jesus Make A Good President?
