Imagine if God answered these Christian prayers about abortion…?

(Photo YouTube)"For those who would like to see fewer abortions, perhaps it’s time for prayers of a different sort," writes Valerie Tarico in AlterNet. Tarico then makes 7 suggestions in her article: "The Peculiar Role Prayer Plays for the Christian Right in Its Crusade to Make Abortion Illegal."Tarico's list brings up an interesting point not just about the politics and the hypocrisy of the religious right, but about the odd Christian belief that human justice must somehow balance G … [Read more...]

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...]

 In the end all the GOP congressional cowards will support Trump. Good! As Jesus said of the GOP, "How terrible it will be for you, scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You are like whitewashed tombs that look beautiful on the outside but inside are full of dead people's bones and every kind of impurity” (Matthew 23:27). In other words according to Jesus, after the 2016 election, no one will mistake the Republicans for anything more than the assholes who created the climate of hate a … [Read more...]

TRUMP BEAT GOD: How Could Ted Cruz Have Lost When God Promised Him Victory? (Another Evangelical Fantasy Explodes)

 (AP Photo/Darron Cummings)  Ted Cruz was called by God to run for president. His preacher dad said he knew that Cruz would win. God told him so. Cruz said God would raise up his people and elect him, that God was going to accomplish this. How could Cruz have failed? Why did God fail? Trump beat God. ***God failed Cruz because Cruz like all evangelicals was delusional. Evangelicals say we were created. We’re jumped up primates that evolved. Evangelicals say climate c … [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...]

Our Grandfather/Granddaughter Lucy & “Ba” Art/Icon Art Project

I've just launched a new show of icon art I collaborated with my 7 year old granddaughter Lucy on. She draws the pictures and I paint them in. A motif in modern art has been to capture the primitive forms and childlike wonder present in children's art. I've gone one better and actually am working with a child in an equal partnership. And this isn't just any child, this is the little girl for whom Genie and I provide daily care. She is my heart. These paintings are about the love that drives me … [Read more...]
