Politics, Economics, and Religion


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.

Thanks, Bertold, for Valerie Tarico's exposition of how Roy Moore is "living the script", and explaining that, among other things, consent was simply not required by the Bible. Rape and adultery were crimes not against women but against their owners, reducing their value in producing children of known parentage.

And thanks, Ruth, for that cartoon! Reposting as a direct image:

Woman in squalid cave, cooking a can over an open fire, as her husband comes home with a dead rat for dinner: “Oh, goody... Mister The-road-to-prosperity-goes-through-giving-the-richest-guys-more-money is home...” (The trickle-down learning curve)(click to enlarge)

Thanks for that Bertold. I have also had a long admiration of Tarico and her work.

Tarico is a genius! Thanks for sharing her insights, Bertold.

The brilliant Valerie Tarico strikes again:

Alabama Conservatives are Right: Roy Moore’s Behavior is Perfectly Biblical

. . . Christian tradition has long assumed that Mary was a young teen. The Catholic Encyclopedia, citing customs at the time, says that the Mary of the Virgin Birth story would have been as young as 13. Jewish tradition allows betrothal at the age of 12 and consummation at sexual maturity. Outside of sacramental mythology, a story about an uneducated human girl getting impregnated by a powerful alien being would disturb many people. That Zeigler saw this story as a defense of Moore’s behavior, says something about the extraordinary moral and ethical exceptions our society makes for religion.

Maybe those stack of Bibles were meant to fill in the empty spaces so the devil can't take up residence there?

I really like this comic.

Only God can judge. But we sure can set up the meeting.

Can the silence of the christians and the media be interrupted by getting the facts out?

Colorado Walmart Killer Lived Alone With a Stack of Bibles and No Furniture

Huh! Funny. There seems to be a severe shortage of outrage against extremist Christian terrorists.
