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.

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".

I had never heard of Alex Jones until Steve Shives did a Five Stupid Things segment about him.  Frankly, I have as much use for him as a snake has for shoes and exactly ZERO reason to watch him or his madness.

Alex Jones, with his rambling reports joined the crowd of conspiracy theorists, yet again: 

Full Show - Special Report: Was Scalia Murdered - 02/15/2016

I just assumed Dick Cheney was at the same resort and had gone hunting with Scalia... a case of lead poisoning ensued. Why else was there no autopsy?

It's funny Cruz's ad is promoting how trustworthy he is, when he's been called out for campaign dirty tricks.

Two great headlines in Patheos' Progressive Secular Humanist:

Glenn Beck: God Killed Scalia For Ted Cruz

Christian Conservatives Claim Obama Killed Scalia In Pagan Sacrifice

Put them together and Obama must be God.
