to me I’m more curious why such a large percentage of them are so comfortable with white evangelical christian nationalists that try to overthrow elections and carry racist flags and erect nooses while chanting about murdering the vice president and speaker of the house.

Short answer that I’ve come to: decades of propaganda dissing people who don’t believe in God and strongly associating them with communists.
