Government Hijacked by religion - church, state, & "heartbeat" bill

As I mature it appears to me that the inmates are usually running the asylum. Bedlam - our society - managed at the direction of those who are most on the margins of reasonableness and rationality. Realneo is an example, maybe....
The inmates have more passion, more commitment, more energy, more madness than our "democratically" elected choices.
Whether the issue is the militant middle east or the gun toting mid-west, whether the interest is advanced by a religion or a for-lots-of -profit corporation (religions and pro "sports" are corporations too?) , it is the craziest, cruelest, most irrational view that prevails.
Normalcy is for those of us who are at home, watching the Browns, (or playing the lottery, or smoking a cigarette, or going to the casino....)
At least Representative Niehaus had the gumption to use legislative scheduling thickets to sideline the bill.
