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.

If we were to repeal and replace Obamacare / the Affordable Care Act, how about with a civilized universal single-payer system such as Rep. John Conyers' Expanded and Improved Medicare for All!

ProPublica is hosting the Politwoops project that tracks politicians' and public figures' deleted tweets, including those of President* Donald Trump.

I learned about it through coverage of 45* deleting his tweets supporting Luther Strange, a candidate for Alabama's Republican runoff primary election for a US Senate seat, after disgraced former ("Ten Commandments") judge Roy Moore won.

Clinton did sign the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993.

I went to Catholic schools and in college in 1953-54 I did a term paper on SCOTUS church and state rulings. Since then I have followed SCOTUS, reading their rulings and criticisms of their rulings, especially on the First Amendment's speech and religion clauses.

As I recall, it was the SCOTUS ruling in the Hobby Lobby case that gave the RFRA a bizarrely pro-xian interpretation, saying closely-held corporations could have religious views. As if "paper persons" (lawyer slang) are natural persons.

   As best as I can understand it, Bill Clinton signed into federal law the  Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993. The intent was to protect the American Indians their culture and land from government intrusion.Of course, the Christians say, "HEY! why should only the American Indians have this privilege !? .. and thus they join the band wagon and use this law to protect their rights to enforce their views.. such as the Hobby Lobby Inc and the gay hating woman , Kim Davis.

  Since then, many states followed through with their own religious protection acts.

Yes, I remember hearing that, but thought it was Reagan who ''opened the floodgates'', for everyone to begin being swamped.

It actually started with Eisenhower, as documented by Kevin Kruse in One Nation Under God. God in US politics is mainly a  Repuglican thing. Eisenhower opened the door, Reagan issued mass invitations. I don't know what Clinton did. Bush Jr. opened the coffers and Dolt 45 is tearing down the wall of separation.

I thought it was a Reagan thing.......

I blame Bill Clinton for opening the floodgates of religious crap seeping into the government.
