Ireland to Roman Catholic Church “Get Lost!” R.I.P Catholic neocons! (And good riddance)

Conservative Roman Catholics hate Pope Francis because he loves Jesus more than power. And now "Catholic" Ireland has led the way for freedom and human rights on marriage equality, not because of but in spite of Church teaching and political power. Ireland is "the" Church. Rather Ireland was the Roman Catholic Church. Now it's a free country. The Church approved, aided and abetted abusers of thousands of children for decades in Ireland, the domestic abuse and virtual slavery of women, the … [Read more...]

 I’ve always wanted to spy on my neighbors. Now I can. When drones piloted from "over the horizon" become as ubiquitous as iPads and smartphones and as idiot-proof as using email, then not only Google will be able to look into my neighbor’s back yard. I’ll be able to video them through their bathroom skylight instead of just fantasizing about my neighbor’s wife.Amazon wants to use drones to deliver stuff to us. So the skies will be full.No one will notice one more drone out of mi … [Read more...]

So who will Rubio and Cruz take America back from?

 Rubio stands out for his religion-broken brain. He converted from Roman Catholicism to Mormonism --  then back again. Still, maybe the good old RC isn't sexy enough for this guy. As Jeffrey Tayler points out in Salon, He two-times Pope Francis by going to a megachurch in Miami Christ Fellowship.Christ Fellowship is sort of nuts. They do demonology stuff, exorcism, and teach Young Earth creationism.  They (sort of like Gordon college, Boston area bastion of gay hate) deman … [Read more...]

Why Do Right Wing Christian Families Think They “Own” Their Children?

"In the Iron Age mindset of the Bible writers, children are not individual persons who have their own thoughts, with corresponding rights.

In the Bible, children, like slaves and livestock, are chattel. Male … [Read more...]
