The religious right functions like Emmanuel Goldstein in much of the social liberal rhetoric we hear today.

Except that the religious right is real rather than fictional, an organization rather than an individual, and incredibly politically powerful rather than a fake boogeyman used to scare the masses. But sure, otherwise this is LITERALLY 1984.

Not really, but I have noticed that liberals tend to not understand the Religious Right at all and this makes discourse over them ridiculous.

For example I've found a lot of liberals believe that basically all evangelicals believe in the following:

-Charismatic practices such as speaking in tongues.
-KJV-Onlyism
-Strict TULIP double predestination Calvinism
-Extreme complementarianism and prescribed gender roles.
-Complete ban on alcohol consumption in addition to drugs.

As a liberal I don't believe this, don't know anyone who does, and don't even know what the hell the half of that even is.

What is KJV-Onlyism, TULIP double predestination Calvinism, and extreme complementarianism?

I'm a NO-WHIP Double Fudge Trinitarian Compatibilist Over Easy, myself.
