Rep. Randy Forbes (R-VA), a United States Congressman, preached at his home church in Virginia and said there is a conspiracy to destroy and undermine the people’s personal religious beliefs.

Let’s keep in mind that it’s the Republicans and fundamentalist Christians that fight against religious freedom, not the Democrats.

“Let me just tell you one of the myths that’s out there,” said Forbes. “It’s easy for us to somehow just think that all of this just evolved because people on the internet, they’re reading more and they’re getting more intellectual and somehow or the other, it’s like they’ve discovered the world isn’t flat anymore and therefore we don’t believe in God and we don’t believe in faith.”
