Why Are Progressive Christians AND Right Wing American Fundamentalists Lying to Ourselves About the Islamic Destruction of Christianity in the Middle East?

The American evangelical right wing gave George W. Bush and the Republicans a pass for founding ISIS. ISIS is the only real "result" from our so-called War on Terror. The War on Terror is a creation of big oil married to Saudi lies, radical Islam, and neoconservative pro-Israel stupidity. The big loser is twofold-- the credibility of the US Military and the Christians of the Middle East. And both right and left have preferred to believe their own lies rather than admit the truth: We helped u … [Read more...]

The Apologetics Lie my Daddy and Me Used to Tell

 A Facebook friend sent me a note and a link to one of my dad's old speeches he'd given in 1982 at Coral Gables Church. I spoke there too back in the bad old days of my far right activism. I re-watched the talk. Dad mentioned the projects we'd worked on together several times. It was good to hear his voice. But... while so much of what Dad said was so well said, there is so much I've grown to fear and disagree with.It all boils down to this: apologetics. Dad was relying on a … [Read more...]

Is This the Dirtiest Secret in American Government History? Did Bush Know it Was Saudi Arabia that Orchestrated and Paid For 9/11?

No, this is not some roll out of a wacky conspiracy theory.  The New York Times just broke a story that --if true-- HAS HUGE  implications. We know that Bush foolishly attacked Iraq, that had nothing to do with 9/11.  But what if Bush/Cheney did that while knowing that our "allies," the Saudi royal family, had paid for Al Qaeda, trained them and were personally behind the 9/11 attacks?Here's an excerpt from the article. (Read the whole thing HERE.)Moussaoui Calls Saudi Princes Patro … [Read more...]

They seem bent on doing the impossible through their really bad idea to insult our president: They seem bent on turning all non-Republicans against Israel.Netanyahu and … [Read more...]

The Worst Idea since ISIS: American Evangelical Ex-Military Mercenaries Heading To Iraq to Fight ISIS “For God” Yes, it IS Happening!

Can you think of a worse idea than evangelicals, who believe they are serving God by killing Muslims, fighting Muslims who think they are serving God by killing Christians?The US government should crack down as hard on both the evangelical free-lance American mercenaries going to Iraq to fight ISIS and on American Muslims heading overseas to fight for ISIS. These people who want to fight in the name of Jesus or Allah are all a threat to us.On BBC Radio 4 (Newshour, October 20, 2014) a … [Read more...]

Here’s (some of) what’s at Stake if the Republicans Take the Senate

John McCain (R-Ariz.) said at a Pacific Council on International Policy conference on last Saturday."We may be able to 'contain,' but to actually defeat ISIS is going to require more boots on the ground, more vigorous … [Read more...]
