She is a complete idiot, and a sad statement on the state of affairs in America today. No satire can do justice to the lunacy of those fools.

...wasn't it Moses, Jesus and Buddha that banned masturbation?

The new US Dominionist/Millenarianist political movement has some seriously spooky potential. Chris Hedges started raising the alarm about Christian fascism in 2004.

http://www.theocracywatch.org/chris_hedges_nov24_04.htm
* Dr. James Luther Adams, my ethics professor at Harvard Divinity School, told us that when we were his age, he was then close to 80, we would all be fighting the "Christian fascists."

***
The Reconstructionist movement, founded in 1973 by Rousas Rushdooney, is the intellectual foundation for the most politically active element within the Christian Right. Rushdooney's 1,600 page three-volume work, Institutes of Biblical Law, argued that American society should be governed according to the Biblical precepts in the Ten Commandments. He wrote that the elect, like Adam and Noah, were given dominion over the earth by God and must subdue the earth, along with all non-believers, so the Messiah could return.

This was a radically new interpretation for many in the evangelical movement. The Messiah, it was traditionally taught, would return in an event called "the Rapture" where there would be wars and chaos. The non-believers would be tormented and killed and the elect would be lifted to heaven.
Rain soddens what is covered up,
It does not sodden what is open.
Therefore uncover what is covered
That the rain will not sodden it.
