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...]

Just How Dumb Are the GOP’s White Rube Gun Nuts? Here’s How…

 "Ammon Bundy says God drove him to break into the offices of an agency that works on behalf of pileated woodpeckers, yellow warblers and other avian wonders. Bundy’s not leaving, he says, until land that we own — that is, every American citizen — is taken from us and given to some unnamed private entity.Yes, it’s comical — white privilege mixed with a “Hee Haw” parody.

Trump is the GOP/Evangelical Mirror

The Trump phenomenon isn’t  about him. It is about the 40-year right wing takeover of the GOP I describe in detail in my book CRAZY FOR GOD: How I Grew Up as One of the Elect, Helped Found the Religious Right, and Lived to Take All (or Almost All) of It Back.  It is about the Republicans and their evangelical backers on the religious and racist right fomenting a slow motion lynching of President Obama where they tried to kill his presidency with a miasma of lies. The time to have stopped Trump w … [Read more...]

Falwell Jr Says: “End those Muslims” and Asks Liberty Students to Carry Guns on Campus

(photo Bloomberg)According to news reports in the Guardian newspaper and other sources, the president of Liberty University urged students, staff and faculty at the Christian school to carry concealed weapons on campus to counter any possible armed attack like the mass shooting in San Bernardino, California. That didn't surprise me. His dad, Jerry Falwell Sr. once told me seriously that if he had a dog that did what "those homosexuals do, I'd shoot it."“Let’s teach them a lesson if they e … [Read more...]

The Colorado Planned Parenthood Shooting– Blame the GOP Our Version of Saudi Wahhabi Islam

The Republican Party going into 2016 is in hock to extremists. It is fittingly symmetrical that the Planned Parenthood clinic workers were gunned down in Dr. Jim Dobson's town. "He was handing out anti-Obama fliers" said the alleged shooter's neighbor on CNN on Saturday. "No more baby parts" NBC quoted a law source as saying that the alleged shooter said.Whatever the motivation of the Colorado Planned Parenthood shootings the incident makes me think about the fact that the Republican Party … [Read more...]
