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.

Bertold?  Remember how I said before that we could expect some civil disobedience if Drumpf got to the White House?  Man, if you thought that Everyone Draw Mohamed Day was heavy, how about Everyone Mock Drumpf Day ... or Month ... or YEAR!!!

Nice bill of rights you got there. Be a shame if something happened to it.

Kellyanne Conway alarmingly advocates “consequences” for criticizing Trump

When President-elect Donald Trump promised "retribution," it was not long before the meaning of that promise took shape. Now, Trump senior adviser and campaign manager Kellyanne Conway is talking about "consequences" for people who speak out against Trump, and demanding silence from his political opponents.

Loren, when a "belief system has no basis in fact, the entirety of its structure" should "become the target of questions and doubts."

Bertold, ironic, is it not, that Christians fight a war against Christmas, if for different reasons than pagans fight. I like Valerie's statement, 

"Fortunately, for almost 500 years, Christian critics of Christmas have offered an alternative view, one that is rather beautiful, even though they themselves regard it darkly. It is the view that our mid-winter celebration reflects, more than anything, the Pagan and universal yearning to embrace hope in the dead of winter, our impulse to celebrate with abandon the return of light and the promise that spring—and new life—will come again.
