Well it's been a journey, to say the least. Like many, I grew up in an intensely religious household and the concerted effects of every single major authority figure I looked up to, my social…Continue

How I Would be a Better God than God

John Remington replied to James M. Martin's discussion Rick Warren's Son Dies: Matthew Had Mental Illness(es), Probably Including Guilt for "Sins"
"Of course some people commit suicide due to a religious upbringing, that doesn't mean that Rick Warren's kid did. I never said it was impossible that his religious environment had anything to do with it, rather just that in the absence of…"

"That's an odd anecdote. How is it relevant?"

John Remington replied to James M. Martin's discussion Rick Warren's Son Dies: Matthew Had Mental Illness(es), Probably Including Guilt for "Sins"
"After reading the title to this thread, I was curious what the statistics say about religiosity and suicide. After a bit of reading, it is pretty clear that there isn't any glaring trend towards increased suicide rates among the religious, and…"

Luara commented on John Remington's blog post How Far Will Zionism Go?
"Along those same lines, I've thought, how about if NYC were made the Jewish state :)  Since there are so many Jewish people there already.  I doubt 9/11 would have happened in that case, a Jewish state would not be complacent about…"

John Remington commented on John Remington's blog post How Far Will Zionism Go?
""your policies" should definitely be corrected to "Israel's policies," that's fair. I haven't really been proofreading these posts, so that slipped through.  Just because it is not going anywhere doesn't…"

John Remington commented on John Remington's blog post How Far Will Zionism Go?
"The link is fixed.  Well I think we agree on a lot, and perhaps our disagreement is mostly regarding the extent to which religious Jews are very destructive. I see them as having quite a bit of influence in contemporary Israeli society, and I…"

Glen Rosenberg commented on John Remington's blog post How Far Will Zionism Go?
"I only saw your quote. Article not accessible. So I assumed that meaning of quote was your contention. I dont want to discuss all of the 48 and 67 stuff that has been rehashed to death. The fact remains the world has a double standard. Jews and…"

"Oh, and don't be dumb and refer to this as antisemitism. I grew up in Israel, speak fluent Hebrew and have a ton of Israeli friends.  I want Peace, and peace is going to require an honest assessment of Israeli flaws just as much as it is…"

John Remington commented on John Remington's blog post How Far Will Zionism Go?
"Ok, first off, my portrayal of Zionism is not a red herring within the context that the article was written. It was a response to a blog of a settler whose views on Israeli rights to the land are 100% in line with biblical prophesy, and I guarantee…"

Glen Rosenberg commented on John Remington's blog post How Far Will Zionism Go?
"The way you portray zionism is a big fat red herring. Just nonsense. Theodor Herzel, the leader of modern political zionism, recognized the need for jews to find a base. And that was in the 19th century and it was a result of religiously derived…"

How Far Will Zionism Go?

"My question to these people has been simply to ask how far will you go? The bible clearly promises Abraham all the land between the Nile and the Euphrates. That represents an absolutely ludicrous amount of territory for Israel to conquer and the logical conclusion of a prophetically informed expansionist policy is to annex significant portions of Jordan, Syria, Iraq and Egypt.

Mowing the Lawn; Some Thoughts About the Conflict in Gaza

On occasion we come up with a term or an expression to describe some geopolitical reality, it makes it's way around the news, maybe even history books, and somehow seemingly without anyone actually taking the time to think tangibly about the implications, the phrase has been inducted into our collective consciousness - now it's normal, like peanut butter and jelly.I've always thought of nuclear deterrence or Mutually Assured Destruction in this way.
