  1. Governor Brewer has her own religious militant agenda, obviously. That people like her are in positions of power, frankly, scares the hell out of me. More than once I have seriously considered going the ex-pat route and I never thought I would say that.

    Do you know what her religious affiliation is? She exhibits all the signs of a fundie Christian or Mormon.

  2. Cognitive Dissenter -- I don't know, but it might be worthwhile to look into.

  3. Wikipedia states she belongs to the Lutheran church. It also reports she and her husband had 3 sons. One died and another is committed to a mental facility after he raped a woman and was found criminally insane about 20 years ago. Lots of heartache it would seem.

    That surprises me in light of her right-wing stance on so many important issues.
