Crazy Wing Nuts

OK, so President Obama just solved the problem with the Catholic Church and contraception by requuring insurance companies to give free contraception to those who work for Catholic organizations who want such services.  Easy peasy.

i hope so. but when i look at russiawhere for 70 years astheism was taught in the schools and as soon as the comunists wree tossed out, religion came back, and even china, where religeous are persecuted, but still exist, i dont know.  of course religion myst be kept out of out national afiars. its only in the last 50 years that it become so damn fundamentalist. until 50 years ago politicians treated it as a deasd subject and rarely mentioned it

Absolutely agree, Jennifer.  Sure won't happen in our lifetime.  Maybe science and reason will progress to the point where it makes it all go away some day.

I do think, however, that the ultra-nutcases can be exposed enough to cut them off at the knees.  That's the best we can hope for.  Beyond that, absolutely, stand firm and make strong statements and absolute demands.

The term "religious freedom" has no real meaning to the radical right.  They don't any more want that than they want to appoint the Pope as their god.  There is no "attack" on religious freedom either, and they know that, too.  They whip up these idiotic slogans for their programmed masses just as the church hierarchy has whipped up horrible slogans for centuries. 

THEY know what they want.  THEY want dominion (often with a capital "D"), THEY want their brand of christianity to rule.  But they can't get it without the help of their masses of followers.  Thus they lie and misquote and etc., in order to convince the masses their enemies are wrong and they are right. 

Once they gain power (let's hope this is hypothetical!) they will hold it with an iron fist and their followers become their slave masters and rules us just as the church ruled Europe and England for so long. 

Our mission is to find ways to convince their followers of how they are being deceived and pry them away from such idiots as Boehner.  Remove the puppets and the puppet masters have nothing.

As much as I would really love to agree with you, I fear the pertetual victim complex of the religious right removes the ability to understand such important principles.

"If the president does not reverse the attack on religious freedom, then the Congress, acting on behalf of the American people and the Constitution we are sworn to uphold and defend, must," Boehner said. "This attack by the federal government on religious freedom in our country must not stand and will not stand."


"It's a dangerous game when dealing with a fundamental American right protected by the Constitution such as religious freedom," the RNC said in the memo.


You think maybe NOW they understand that the idea of separation of church and state goes both ways?

RE: my earlier post about the Sadventist church in Greenfield_ somebody must have called them out on the Walker sign give away, because when I went by there today, it was all gone.
