Be careful not to get too much education
Here's a bone-chilling article about the push from the right, particularly the religious right, to dumb down and censor schools and colleges for fear that education, particularly scientific education, will make you a dreaded liberal. There is truth to this. For instance, it's much harder to be against abortion when you realize that a fetus looks more like a headless lizard than a baby in the early stages. And being educated about evolution makes it pretty hard to believe in the literal Bible, casting doubt on things like, oh, the nearness of the Rapture. Which means that you have to do stuff like care about the enviroment, which is a drag.
Of course, if you mull it over, it's easy to see that it isn't just science that is an obstacle to unquestioning belief that God is a Republican. There are so many facts that could cause doubt and questioning all over the place. For instance, if you learn that Michaelango and Shakespeare had a touch of the gay to them, it becomes difficult to believe that homosexuality is this brand new thing that indicates the imminent fall of the American empire. Learning that many of our Founding Fathers weren't Christian makes the argument for a theocracy a little harder to swing. Learning that throughout most of Christianity's history, some Christians thought that we were in the End of Days might make you question if we really are right now.
Frankly, even knowing how to read is problematic, because then you can read the Bible and discover by accident that it contains many internal contradictions, making it difficult to take it so literally.
I think we can safely say that if the right gets their way on "balancing" science with religious malarkey, they will probably not stop there, as there is far too much education that is threatening.
