See Florida Governor Rick Scott as he delivers his daily video address to the state. I know that the Republicans don't kill and torture like the Taliban, so don't bother sending me hate mail.
There is a parallel here that I want you to understand: There are many Americans who are completely turned off by the fascination that the Republican party has with preaching instead of governing. You need to keep your religious views to yourself when you are running the nation's governments. We do not want to be preached to. Religion is like a penis, it is sometimes good to have one, just don't go ramming it down people's throats unless they ask you to.
