With all due respect for Chris Hedges, I didn't know churches were one of the five pillars of liberalism.  Additionally, churches have ALWAYS been corrupted.

"The five pillars of liberalism have been corrupted; the press, labor, education, churches, and the Democratic Party."

~ Chris Hedges, Death of the Liberal Class (2010).

 I wish I was as smart and well spoken as hitch. I study him and immerse myself in his videos as much as possible. Perhaps those as cosmic skeptic will step in his shoes.

"The New Colossus

Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
"Keep ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"


Emma Lazarus (November 2, 1883)

  • "Do you tell me that the Bible is against our rights? Then I say that our claims do not rest upon a book written no one knows when, or by whom. Do you tell me what Paul or Peter says on the subject? Then again I reply that our claims do not rest on the opinions of any one, not even on those of Paul and Peter, . . . Books and opinions, no matter from whom they came, if they are in opposition to human rights, are nothing but dead letters."
  • —Ernestine Rose, responding to religious heckler at Seventh National Woman's Rights Convention, New York, November 25–26, 1856 (History of Woman Suffrage, Vol. 1: 661-663)
