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.

Tony, if the voting public chooses this ignorant, stupid, foolish, judgmental fool into office, it says about as much about the voters as this man who appears to be unwilling and unable to do a little research and find out how conception takes place. Fear, anger, and grief do not prevent pregnancy. If that were true, there would be far fewer babies conceived.

Sally and her partners commitment DOES deserve honoring Joan, you are SO right.  And HOW DARE people say that their commitment is any less just because they were of the same sex.  How dare anyone.~ Melinda
