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.

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.

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.

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

Right, corporations have taken over and, as Michael Moore(?) and others have said, corporations are legal sociopaths.

Check that line in the Declaration of Independence about our not changing the forms to which we are accustomed.
