Persistent Vegetative State
I couldn't be that they're just a bunch of ignorant, self-important rubes with an irrepressible need to grandstand.
"Whenever a man believes that he has the exact truth from God, there is in that man no spirit of compromise. He has not the modesty born of the imperfections of human nature; he has the arrogance of theological certainty and the tyranny born of ignorant assurance. Believing himself to be the slave of God, he imitates his master, and of all tyrants, the worst is a slave in power."--Robert G. Ingersoll
