"If we took away women's right to vote, we'd never have to worry about another Democrat president. It's kind of a pipe dream, it's a personal fantasy of mine, but I don't think it's going to happen. And it is a good way of making the point that women are voting so stupidly, at least single women."

In this election year, the subject of rape has reared its ugly head - and not in favor of women: the Todd Akin "legitimate rape" meme was only a sampling of what the Christian Right wants to do to women.

"The Family Research Council is organizing another Religious Right bus tour to bolster Todd Akin's campaign for U.S. Senate in Missouri against Sen. Claire McCaskill. The "Repeal and Replace McCaskill Tour" will feature prominent conservative figures like Mike Huckabee, Tony Perkins and Phyllis Schlafly and lesser-known activists like Stephen Broden.

Broden is a failed Republican candidate for Congress who garnered national attention when he floated violent insurrection against the Obama administration .

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?
