Fanaticism and ignorance is forever busy, and needs feeding … and we are feeding it well.
From “Inherit the Wind” 1960, Directed by Stanley Kramer, based on actual transcripts of the 1925 Scopes’ “Monkey Trial” in Tennessee, where the teaching of evolution had been banned. As far as I can tell, we are going back there again.
Is this where we want to go with our country? Is this what we fought and died for? God help us.
