Someone in office who doubts simple answers. What a relief! I thought this was an interesting quote from a Politico analysis article, and a fair summing up of Barack Obama’s first year as president: “Obama is not a populist. He can’t … Continue reading
Would Christian Brit Hume Have Said to Glenn Beck (a Mormon) What He Said to Tiger Woods (a Buddhist)?
To gage Brit Hume’s sincerity in extending a nationally televised public invitation to Buddhist Tiger Woods to become a Christian (for the proper sort of “forgiveness” supposedly not available to Woods otherwise), I think that we can ask one simple question: … Continue reading
According to the New Republic today, Matt Barber, an associate dean at the Orwellian named Liberty University, had the following response on hearing that a transgendered person had been hired to work in the federal bureaucracy: [It] boggles the mind. What boggles … Continue reading
If you don’t think that there is any real danger in the rise of 21st century American religious authoritarianism, watch this: Oh, and how many times have you heard Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, or Sean Hannity speak out against the “anti-sodomy” … Continue reading
Did you know that? I noticed a mention of this fact in Barack Obama’s Cairo speech: I know, too, that Islam has always been a part of America’s story. The first nation to recognize my country was Morocco. In signing … Continue reading
I’m confused. I thought that followers of Christ are supposed to pray for the interests of the sick and the poor, not pray against them. But here’s a group of Republican lawmakers and right-wing activists, led by Lou Engle and Michelle … Continue reading
Gay Execution in Uganda: Pastor Rick Warren Tries to Walk His Fellow Evangelicals Back from a Precipice
I think. This today at Alternet: The Ugandan parliament is currently considering an “Anti-Homosexuality Bill,” under which any person “convicted of gay sex is liable to life imprisonment.”
A reader today at Andrew Sullivan’s blog sees analogous fundamentalist political dynamics at work in the United States and India: Perhaps the Democrats can look to India for reasons to be optimistic. At this time, the BJP is in electoral ruins, aided … Continue reading
Charlotte Essman of East Texas: Dark Prophetess of JFK’s Assassination—and President Barack Obama’s?
The following letter by Charlotte Essman, written to President Lyndon Johnson two days after John Kennedy was assassinated, is part of the LBJ Presidential Library archive in Texas. Charlotte Essman was simply a citizen processing her grief over Kennedy’s murder by Lee Harvey Oswald. … Continue reading
Below, more far right President Obama hatred. By the way, death threats directed toward the president have gone up 400% since his election, and the number of death threats dwarfs those received by previous presidents. The teabaggers are keeping the Secret Service … Continue reading
This is infuriating, but there are Christians—Christians!—distributing a bumper sticker that says, “Pray for Obama—Psalm 109:8”. This sounds innocuous until you actually go and read the verse, and those verses following it: 8 Let his days be few; and let another … Continue reading
One reason I do not believe in hell is, were it to exist, it would make heaven impossible. In other words, the very pleasures of heaven would be rendered ridiculous by the concurrent knowledge that the torturing of vast multitudes was occurring at the … Continue reading
It’s November, and that means that, as we move ever closer to December and Christmas, that it’s once again time for the annual running of the bull, as in Bill O’Reilly, who will once again entertain us all by engaging godless secular … Continue reading
George Takei (Lt. Sulu of Star Trek fame) and his partner went on the Newlywed Game this week! Come out, stay out, speak out.
A reader at Andrew Sullivan’s blog admits to taking a risk: I voted for Obama with my fingers crossed, because I knew that as the populist right lost power, they would become more extreme, more concentrated, and more violent. And … Continue reading
Pete Soderman, at his blog, calls attention to numerous unjust state laws on the books that discriminate against atheists. Here’s one from North Carolina: Sec. 8. Disqualifications of office. The following persons shall be disqualified for office: First, any person who … Continue reading
Sarah Palin’s Orwellian Mind: She Can’t Call Things What They Are, and Words Can Shift Their Meaning Whenever They Are Useful to Her
Gail Collins caught these two Sarah Palin resignation speech Orwellisms this week: “It would be apathetic to just hunker down and ‘go with the flow.’ Nah, only dead fish ‘go with the flow.’ No. Productive, fulfilled people determine where to … Continue reading
As Sarah Palin had a weird and very public political meltdown today (announcing her intent after a great deal of “prayer and deliberation” to abandon her first-term governorship in a few weeks), she got all euphemistic at the end of her rambling and language-strained speech, … Continue reading
