Thanks for re-opening this group, Daniel.
Here's an interesting interview with a guy named Mel White. CONTENT WARNING: The interviewee is still a religionist, but quite a fascinating one. He was raised as an evangelical, mounted a highly successful film and writing career, and knew on an intimate basis most of the rogues' gallery of infamous right wing hate mongers, including Betsy DeVoss. -------
---------Now he's an outspoken opponent of fundamentalism, and not shy about it. He thinks Billy Graham senior was basically well-meaning, but that the Junior version is an evil fascist. He has had quite an amazing history.
That's funny, Daniel. I never thought of it that way. Now that Hugh Hefner is dead, we are all breathing in his atoms. We're even closer!
Hugh Hefner went to the same high school as my parents and my two sisters. He was very generous in supporting the school's newspaper and journalism classes throughout the years. During the time my sister played flute in the band in the 1970's, Hefner paid for new marching band uniforms.

I never knew this.
For Hugh Hefner, gay rights were part of the sexual revolution
Robertson Begs ‘The Gays’ to Only Do ‘Hand and Mouth Stuff’ Until After Hurricane Season
VIRGINIA BEACH, VIRGINIA — Televangelist Pat Robertson told a podcast audience this week that he had a “special message and dire plea” for the LGBTQ community, who he referred to repeatedly as “The Gays.” Robertson said he wants the LGBTQ community to consider drastically cutting back on their sexual activity and limit it to “just hand and mouth stuff.”
“I’m just afraid that God’s patience with butt sex is wearing thin is all,” Robertson said, “and the last thing we want is to incur his wrath simply because The Gays couldn’t keep their anal sex to a respectable level, is all.”
Later, Robertson would clarify that to God no amount of anal sex acceptable.
“You might think God and Jesus don’t have enough free time to care about the personal sexual orientation of every human being,” Robertson said, “but that just shows you don’t know Jesus Christ like I know him.”
Christ, reached for comment, would tell us that Robertson is “totes cray” and doesn’t speak for all of Christendom, much less the majority of it.
"lack Protestants saw atheists as the biggest threat to physical safety"
I wonder if black perceive atheists as a threat because of their history of the church being a "pressure release valve" for slaves?
A black author wrote of taking their troubles to the "threshing field", I think was the term. I hope someone can correct my memory and remind of the author. His writings evoked a powerful feeling in me.
From what I've seen here there are many Muslims and Christians who think that love and care are the first rules, no matter who you are, and after that they'll think perhaps about whatever else their religion wants. But you never know beforehand..
>Black Protestants saw atheists as the biggest threat to physical safety
That surprised me.
