  1. Let me introduce myself. I am the president and founder of the Anti Pres. Ronald Reagan Association. In the text that follows, I will explain why stopping Pres. Ronald Reagan is fundamental to the survival of our society. Before I launch into my main topic, I want to make a few matters crystal-clear: (1) Even those few who benefit from Pres. Reagan’s allocutions fail to recognize their current manifestation as a gutless form of antiheroism, and (2) as a result of that, Pres. Reagan’s most recent viewpoints are irreverent, in bad taste, and inappropriate. Now that you know where I stand on those issues, I can safely say that there may be nothing we can do to prevent Pres. Reagan from making good on his word to impose theological straightjackets on scriptural interpretation. When we compare this disturbing conclusion to the comforting picture purveyed by his emissaries, we experience psychological stress or “cognitive dissonance”. Our only recourse is to study the problem and recommend corrective action. In short, Pres. Ronald Reagan wouldn’t hesitate to sacrifice his most loyal satraps if it made it even slightly easier for him to perpetrate acts of the most ribald character.
