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.

Bert, where is Hellholes R Us?

You earned that for guilt-tripping rather than persuading!

Gerald, sainthood and political power bestow the authority that deranged believers or realistic subjects recognize and obey.

Without obedience, authority doesn't exist.

If you're interested enough, do some introspection.

It's difficult to find words to describe the deranged logic in it.

If anybody knows what authority sainthood actually bestows on anyone I'd be interested to find out.

CALIFORNIA TRIBES DENOUNCE CATHOLIC CHURCH’S “FRAUD” AND “BLATANT F...

Several representatives of California tribes held a press conference Tuesday at Washington D.C.’s Plymouth Congregational United Church of Christ to proclaim the opposition of more than 50 tribes to the canonization of Junipero Serra, which is set to take place just down the road on Wednesday afternoon. One speaker called the canonization mass that Pope Francis will conduct “a disastrous celebration of slavery and cultural termination.” [Read: Why Serra Should Not Be a Saint, by scholar Jacqueline Hidalgo.]

With the money we save by not helping the refugees we can all do our christmas shopping at Hellholes R Us.

No Bert, it's the right wing version of brotherly love, as endorsed by the Christian idea of human togetherness.

Pat, was that the King James version??

The refugee crisis is definitely being treated, in most countries, as a problematical border control issue rather than the humanitarian crisis that it is.

Huckabee: refugees may just want ‘cable TV

Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, whose presidential campaign has become a crusade for “religious liberty” and the rights of the unborn, told social conservatives this weekend that they should be skeptical of allowing more Syrian refugees into the United States.

“Are they really escaping tyranny, are they escaping poverty, or are they really just coming because we’ve got cable TV?” Huckabee asked, in an audience question-and-answer session at the conservative Eagle Forum conference in St. Louis. “I don’t mean to be trite.”

In a podcast, the Republican presidential hopeful added that European nations are forgetting the “lessons of 9/11” by allowing “alleged-Syrian refugees” into their countries.

The lesson of 9/11 is that refugees are awful people who should be sent back to hellish conditions in their war-torn country?
