The Terrifying Truth about the USA (And All of Us) That Trump’s Rise to Power Confirms and What to Do about It

Does U2’s Bono Support Donald Trump?

Bono is on tour and denouncing Trump. The problem is that Bono unwittingly helped get Trump elected. Bono did this by providing cover for the white evangelicals that are Trump's most reliable base.Bono has for years burnished the image of the far right hate-monger and Trump-booster Franklin Graham, and his hell-preaching fundamentalist father Billy.

As we watch Trump abuse and debase the office of president we see a spiritual problem unfolding: the loss of the American soul.

In Calvinism, the theological cult of an angry God in which I was raised, humans are created by a God who like Trump, has determined to give them only the illusion of free will. And this God never intends to save them all or even most of them. Most are mere pawns to fuel his fires of hell for eternity-- the Calvinists love to quote St. Paul, who calls them “vessels of wrath”. Trump seems to worship no one but himself. But the angry selfish God of Calvin is waiting for him if Trump ever wants a go … [Read more...]

Institutions known for sexual assault (including child rape and spousal abuse) are mostly organizations closed to supervision that do not have checks because they answer only to a supreme leader of some sort, usually a man. In other words they are mighty like churches or as their critics might describe them dictatorships. This characterization fits Fox News, the Trump business method of operation -- it's all about one omnipotent white guy -- and most churches of the fundamentalist white … [Read more...]

Trump’s election was just one more nail in the coffin of what was — according to humanistic idealists such as Winston Churchill — supposed to be a secular age of reason

Trump’s election was just one more nail in the coffin of what was -- according to humanistic idealists such as Winston Churchill -- supposed to be a secular age of reason and enlightenment. Instead of reason shaping our politics in 2017, we find ourselves at the mercy of white European nationalists, white supremacists, American white Christo-fascists and Islamo-fascists who may all hate each other but are united in one relentless activity: their global attack on reason per se.Barbarians are a … [Read more...]
