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.

[man in hat and suit talking] “People who believe in God think that when they die...” “They will go to a glorious after life.” “Atheists believe that when they die they will be *leaving* a glorious life.” “Therefore, politicians and military leaders should be atheist. They have more to live for.” [caption] Simple logic.

The Catholic Church can stop covering up and protecting pedophiles, and use the money that would have gone towards settlements to pay for their own bus service! And if that's not enough, sell off some of the Vatican's treasures!

The situation.

Twenty kids live in a small farming community three miles away from two schools. One of them is a public school; the other a Catholic school.

The dilemma.

Kids going to the public school ride a school bus; kids going to the Catholic school walk.

Does separation of church and state require that?

(I lived two blocks from the Catholic school and walked.)

Supreme Court Rules Religious School Can Use Taxpayer Funds For Playground


In her dissent, Justice Sonia Sotomayor wrote, "If this separation means anything, it means that the government cannot, or at the very least need not, tax its citizens and turn that money over to houses of worship. The Court today blinds itself to the outcome this history requires and leads us instead to a place where separation of church and state is a constitutional slogan, not a constitutional commitment."
