photo from https://www.facebook.com/OneGordonLGBTQ/Before you choose a college such as Wheaton, Gordon or Liberty University consider this: your degree will cost you dearly in terms of future opportunities. It'll be next to worthless, about as useful to you as a degree from the grand wizard of the KKK. The evangelical fundamentalist college movement is painting itself into a backward hate-filled corner. Don't let them ruin your life. On the brink of the massive defeat that the 2016 p … [Read more...]

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

The deluded religious belief that any people or nation or church is a “chosen” people is the root of almost all our troubles. So is the lunacy of believing in “Truth” revealed through one special prophet to one special peoples and/or tribe, be they Jews, Muslims or American Evangelical Christians, or conservative Roman Catholics who believe in the special primacy of their popes.The earth bursts with life. 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

Evangelical schools are indulging in witch-hunts.

Falwell Jr Says: “End those Muslims” and Asks Liberty Students to Carry Guns on Campus

(photo Bloomberg)According to news reports in the Guardian newspaper and other sources, the president of Liberty University urged students, staff and faculty at the Christian school to carry concealed weapons on campus to counter any possible armed attack like the mass shooting in San Bernardino, California. That didn't surprise me. His dad, Jerry Falwell Sr. once told me seriously that if he had a dog that did what "those homosexuals do, I'd shoot it."“Let’s teach them a lesson if they e … [Read more...]

To succeed this strategy needs reactionary opportunists to push the West to react rashly. ISIS is counting on irrational FEAR. They need someone to keep that fear front and center. Thus the ISIS … [Read more...]
