    Actually, it would be indifferent. The Universe is indifferent.

    Bernie did the right thing. He asked what desperately needs to be asked. The GOP and its fan base are thoroughly and dangerously corrupt due to that religion-fueled cognitive disorder we call right wing authoritarianism.

    How many cities' water supply needs to poison thousands of families, and how many poor people need to die of preventable illness, how many minorities must be demonized and brutalized, how many toddlers need to shoot people, and on and on and fucking on, before we have the fucking balls to question the motives of the people who enact inhumane laws and legitimize irrational and a depraved beliefs through their official roles and influences?

    We need more Bernies who have the wherewithal to challenge the addled cowards who submit to a magical, incoherent authority and NOT to the needs of Americans.

    The GOP is poison because of the irrational protection we give to people's egos and fearful, stupid, dangerous beliefs.

    There is no fucking doubt the little clueless, rat faced authoritarian will do his best to discriminate against Muslims in whatever way he can that will be supported by his in-group. You bet your ass he will.

    Question these weak, cognitively diseased, callous, selfish fucks relentlessly and without apology. If you give more of a shit about the US and less about whether your circle of wagons would approve of your thoughts, that is.

    You do realize the difference between a phobia and something being phobic, right?

    Phobia / phobic
    Noun. Adjective.
    Yeah I think I get it.
    Is there a trick question in there somewhere?

    You're making the assumption that people are fairly intelligent, maybe want to make the world a safer, healthier more productive place for future generations. Nothing could be further from the truth in my experience. Trump's election proves that.

    A phobia is about anxiety, typically irrational. Phobic means being against or repellent. A material can be hydrophobic, that doesn't mean it is irrational.

    What's the difference?
    The former is a statement about the character of atheists. It means an atheist is necessarily vile. The latter is a statement about the potential character of atheist. An atheist has the potential to be vile but that potential may not be realized. In other words, not every atheist is necessarily vile.

    Perhaps a different example can cement the subtle difference. Compare "Catholics are fuckwitted pedophiles" with "Catholics can be fuckwitted pedophiles".
