#2: Howard Ahmanson
Our second loon is Howard Ahmanson.
Ahmanson is a financer of the Discovery Institute and several other fundamentalist causes, such as Proposition 8 in California. He is an extremely wealthy (multi-billionaire!) magnate whose political agenda is nicely captured in the following quotation: "My goal is the total integration of biblical law into our lives”.
Diagnosis: Complete loon, extremely influential and very, very dangerous.
