You Literally Only Need One Reason to Vote Against Trump and For Hillary. Period. Here it is.

As Phil Plait writes in Slate "The Republican Party has made it clear how they feel about climate change." Their official platform only mentions it a few times, and that’s to dismiss it, and their presidential candidate, Donald Trump, calls it a “hoax” and chose a denier as his energy consultant and another as his vice presidential pick. The Democratic Party platform talks about it much more realistically, categorizing it as a threat to our nation and our world. Accepting there’s a problem is ste … [Read more...]

Watching Pence I’m wondering again: what is it about people who “accept Jesus” that makes them so weirdly slickly-phony? Ideas? Comments? Here is what some (very perceptive) FB friends had to say

  The question is do Jesus-following white American evangelicals of the left or right, turn into smarmy flakes because they get “saved” or do smarmy flakes gravitate to Jesus? * Watching Mike Pence even if I knew nothing about him as he spoke at the GOP convention I’d know he was a born again evangelical. * How? *Here is what some of my Facebook friends think (and thank you all!)  but first maybe I can spot the white born-again types because there's a slick smarmy insincerity to th … [Read more...]

(AP Photo/Richard Vogel, File)(photo www.rollingstone.com)Evangelical Christianity in America became a get-rich-quick scheme long ago. So it's no wonder that millions of prosperity gospel-following downtrodden white evangelicals who forgot to start churches of their own (and get rich) see Trump as one of their own. For a start he's just like their preachers and leaders: a comforting fraud who holds out hope of winning life's lottery.According to a new Pew poll an astonishing four fi … [Read more...]
