Hypothetical Question: You are president of the US and have...
Here is an interesting questions.

Lets assume that you are president of the USA (or another country, just a high position of power) and you have access to lists of citizens who believe in creationism, or are anti vaxxers or 9/11 truthers, basically a list of morons. What would you do with this information?

Nothing. If they aren't forcing beliefs onto others why should I care what brand of idiocy they like?

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

But in a sense they are forcing their beliefs. So for example, creationism taught in schools, or not just looking at the examples I gave, how about the attempted defunding of planned parenthood etc. These beliefs do have an affect on our lives even if it is small.

I'd find out who was wasting taxpayer money collecting such lists and have them immediately drummed out of government service for such unauthorized and unneeded trivial bullshit.

I neither know much about USA nor care about it but wasn't creationsim dealt with at least in regard to state schools - Kitzmiller v. Dover Area School District. As for defunding, opponents failed if I recall correctly.

To put it bluntly idea of such list is repugnant and your question is suspicious. What actions you had in mind when you asked about what we would do with such information?

Ps. DLJ perfectly summed my thoughts on the subject.

I agree fully. No excuse to make such lists.
