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.

Joan, I forget the topic, but you had mentioned employee-owned businesses.  Here is another.

So much for the earlier argument for the Donald.

Trump: Churches Should Endorse Candidates and Retain Tax-Exempt Status

Claiming “Christianity is under siege,” Donald Trump promises to reverse a law preventing churches from endorsing political candidates and still retain their tax-exempt status.
Billing himself as a “strong Christian,” Trump is promising the religious right that if elected he will “restore Christianity to greatness” by scrapping IRS regulations pertaining to church engagement in partisan political activity on behalf of candidates or campaigns.

Virginia Court Official Tells Atheist Couple They Have No Right to Get Married Because They Don't Believe in God.

Upon asking why Roth denied them their right to wed, he replied:

“Because she’s agnostic and you’re an atheist. I will not marry you. You don’t believe in God… I just don’t marry anyone who does not believe in God [or] believes that there is a God someplace. So I’m not going to talk the issue over with you and I’m not going to argue about it, okay? I’m just not going to marry you. Correct?”

Yeah, women's dignity and rights are for the Church to mess with, not for non-xians like Trump.

An argument in favor of Trump


Today's Catholic Vote missive encourages readers to contribute to help Robotio or Tailgunner Ted Cruz dump Trump.

As an example, just yesterday transcripts from Trump’s numerous appearances on the vulgar Howard Stern Show began to circulate. Suffice it to say, we cannot even print the content here. Stern and Trump exchanged nasty and demeaning remarks about women -- crudely discussing their body parts and other vulgar actions that I can’t even describe.

Those Catholics - always such staunch supporters of women's dignity and rights!

Barry Friedman's quip Too many in this country would rather be fucked by business than helped by government oversimplifies the issue.

It ignores the people who know how to protect themselves and don't care if others get fucked.

Is that an instance of artificial selection or natural selection?

I lean toward its being artificial selection, done by people to "cull the herd", so to speak.

Just listened to Steve Shives' piece on Alex Jones! Steve nails Alex right on the nose.

Hey Ruth--

Yeah, I didn't read it either. It was the inverse of clickbait.

I didn't  need to follow the link, this title alone entertained me for three minutes "Christian Conservatives Claim Obama Killed Scalia In Pagan Sacrifice".
