Politics, Economics, and Religion

Religion has so many connections to political and economic beliefs, there needs to be a place to identify linkages, problems, goals, options, action plans and evaluation criteria.

What is the purpose of life?

An eternal question, what is the purpose of life?, occupied philosophers’ thoughts throughout history. Stone pictographs reveal even primitive peoples reflected on this query. Each one has the capacity to define his or her personal thinking about politics, economics and religion.

An Atheist / Antitheist Manifesto, by Brian Dalton

The original title of the following video was: "The Way of the Mister: Atheist Fundamentalist," but having watched it twice, I can't escape the feeling that my moniker fits as well and perhaps a bit better.  In 20 minutes and change, Brian Dalton…Continue

Six facts about guns, violence, and gun control

 “The most striking features of the data are (1) how much more violent the U.S. is than other OECD countries (except possibly Estonia and Mexico, not shown here), and (2) the degree of change—and recently, decline—there has been in the U.S. time series considered by itself.”

Kieran Healy, a sociologist at Duke University

Thank you, Madukar, for this quote:

Glenn Greenwald: Woman Imprisoned for Life for Minor Drug Offense; ...

"The US is the world's largest prison state, imprisoning more of its citizens than any nation on earth, both in absolute numbers andproportionally. It imprisons people for longer periods of time, more mercilessly, and for more trivial transgressions than any nation in the west. This sprawling penal state has been constructed over decades, by both political parties, and it punishes the poor and racial minorities at overwhelmingly disproportionate rates."

Dobson: Connecticut Shooting was God Allowing 'Judgment to Fall Upo...

Well, there you have it folks, that is about all I can tolerate of this sick, deluded, disgusting reporting of the Far Right. If you need more information you are going to have to get it yourself. I am about to vomit. 

"James Dobson dedicated his radio program this morning to discussing Friday's tragic shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary school in Connecticut, which he attributed to the fact that God has "allowed judgment to fall upon us" because the nation has turned its back on him by accepting things like abortion and gay marriage" 12/17/2012

Swanson: Having Gay Friends like Making Friends with Serial Killers

What can one say to such outrageous statements? Preposterous! Disgusting! Sick! None of these are strong enough. 

"Radical anti-gay activists are quite angry with Rick Warren over his interview with HuffPost Live where he said he is not homophobic because “I have many, many gay friends.” Warren also drew the ire of pastor Kevin Swanson who along with co-host Dave Buehner on Generations Radio likened Warren’s statement to someone boasting about friendships with serial killers, cannibals, child molesters and wife beaters."

Pastor Takes Credit for 2011 DC Earthquake

"In 2011, Texas Gov. Rick Perry partnered with pastor John Benefiel, a self-proclaimed Apostle who leads the Heartland Apostolic Reformation Network, for his The Response prayer rally. Like many of the other pastors promoting The Response, Benefiel has some rather curious views. For example, he claims the Statue of Liberty is a “demonic idol” and that the District of Columbia is under the control of demonic powers. While appearing on Sid Roth’s show It’s Supernatural!, Benefiel argued that the Statue of Freedom on top of the Capitol and the Washington Monument are demonic symbols."

Supernatural may exist in their lives, but it just comes out silly to me.
