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.

One of the most absurd and self-contradictory phrases out in the ether these days is that of "Family Values," usually thrown about by christians who challenge those who would attempt to make changes to usages and practices which they feel were…Continue

On climate denial, the GOP's Mad (Not-a-) Scientists:

(It's a Hillary ad.)

Question: WHICH GOP candidate has the mop sufficient to support head lice?  [gee, is this a multiple-choice question?!?]

A recent GOP Presidential poll was release today. While Trump is still doing well, he's being overtaken.

Well Spud, I guess it's it's another of those "mysterious ways" in which god moves.

On another front, Rachel Maddow is supposedly interviewing colossal dick Rick Santorum tonight; should be entertaining.

If "This is a battle with powers and principalities beyond our comprehension.", how can you possibly know anything about it, including whether it exist or not?

Thanks, Bertold. With Catholic Vote producing stuff like that, the bizarre thinking of elderly Catholics will no longer amaze me.

For instance, two evenings each month on a closed circuit tv system I was showing movies not approved by the Church and an elderly Catholic critic called me a communist.

I had escaped Catholicism forty years earlier and kind of pitied the guy. Instead of laughing I told him "M..., the Soviet Union collapsed 15 years ago; you can stop beating that horse."

Someday, the indoctrination done in Catholic schools will be seen as child abuse.

Fulminating further against Planned Parenthood, Catholic Vote has come up with this helpful explanation of what's plaguing us culturally:

Stop for a moment and consider who is behind this plunge into the depths of evil. The answer of course is the The Father of Lies. Satan has manipulated and destroyed the conscience, heart, and minds of so many involved in the Culture of Death.

This is a battle with powers and principalities beyond our comprehension.

But maybe... just maybe the recent exposé and the growing chorus of voices in defense of women and children is the miracle we have been begging for. Perhaps this moment will be the breaking point that destroys not only Planned Parenthood, but breaks the back of a culture that has been so anesthetized to the horror of abortion.

Which suggests the question - who benefits from belief in "powers and principalities beyond our comprehension?" Not to mention that the Catholics live in extremely fragile glass houses when it comes to castigation of a "culture of death."

The DNC has compiled a brief dossier on the current GOP candidates for the presidency.  It doesn't pretend to be non-partisan, but then, neither are they.  Have a look when you have a moment ... preferably on an empty stomach.

The 2016 Republican Field

All of the Bush males--#41, #43, and Jeb--have shown they have language problems. I've never heard anyone describe a cause.

Or how about: "I know how difficult it is to put food on your family."  There was a whole 365-page calendar of them.  I think all the coke and booze addled his brain permanently.
