If there is a creator He/She/It must hate fundamentalist religion

Far right exclusionary religion bursts with death. If there is a creator of life He/She/It m … [Read more...]

The Witch-Hunts, Dishonesty, Victimology and Paranoia at Gordon, Wheaton (and Many other Evangelical Schools) Spells Long-Term Disaster For Christian Education in the USA

It i … [Read more...]

Just How Dumb Are the GOP’s White Rube Gun Nuts? Here’s How…

 "Ammon Bundy says God drove him to break into the offices of an agency that works on behalf of pileated woodpeckers, yellow warblers and other avian wonders. Bundy’s not leaving, he says, until land that we own — that is, every American citizen — is taken from us and given to some unnamed private entity.Yes, it’s comical — white privilege mixed with a “Hee Haw” parody. The only thing Bundy and his fellow burglars have accomplished thus far is to leave behind enough evidence for pros … [Read more...]
