Our Jeffersonian Rape Culture

 Establishment darling, southern gentleman, scholar and author Jon Meacham had no trouble getting on talk shows to pitch his book extolling the virtues of the serial rapist Thomas Jefferson. What else do you call sex with a fourteen year old black slave, but rape?So how fitting it is that at the university founded by a serial rapist--the University of Virginia--the federal government is investigating UVA for Title IX violations, including the mishandling of sexual assault a … [Read more...]

Kirk Cameron’s latest Lie “Saving Christmas”

 Kirk Cameron’s “Saving Christmas” is a cynical ploy masquerading as a movie aimed squarely at the faith-based demographic. And it’s political.  This is the opening shot in Fox’s fake “War on Christmas” pageant.Cameron is an ideologue and right wing culture warrior.

Comfort is into tricks to lure the unwary into the kingdom of far right fundamentalist faith that I’ve seen before. I grew up as t … [Read more...]

Thanksgiving Message From “Christian” GOP to Hispanics “Go Home Border Ni—rs!”

 When Republican lawmakers slammed President Barack Obama for announcing Thursday that he would act unilaterally to provide deportation relief for approximately 4.4 million undocumented immigrants, there didn’t seem to be much of the Thanksgiving spirit in their response.

Why Does The Media Avoid Reporting on the Huge Movement Away From Fundamentalism to Progressive Religion?

 Why Does The Media Avoid Reporting on the Huge Movement Away From Fundamentalism to Progressive Religion? Please comment on my FACEBOOK page (Click HERE) Is it that the conflict between atheists and fundamentalists is sexier? Does 24/7 cable news think only in black and white terms? Does the latest outrage from Bill Maher or Franklin Graham make for a hotter story than the spiritual journey of millions of tolerant, inclusive seeking Americans?Yet In 2012, Pew found t … [Read more...]
