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.

The brilliant Valerie Tarico strikes again:

Alabama Conservatives are Right: Roy Moore’s Behavior is Perfectly Biblical

. . . Christian tradition has long assumed that Mary was a young teen. The Catholic Encyclopedia, citing customs at the time, says that the Mary of the Virgin Birth story would have been as young as 13. Jewish tradition allows betrothal at the age of 12 and consummation at sexual maturity. Outside of sacramental mythology, a story about an uneducated human girl getting impregnated by a powerful alien being would disturb many people. That Zeigler saw this story as a defense of Moore’s behavior, says something about the extraordinary moral and ethical exceptions our society makes for religion.

Colorado Walmart Killer Lived Alone With a Stack of Bibles and No Furniture

Huh! Funny. There seems to be a severe shortage of outrage against extremist Christian terrorists.

Right, corporations have taken over and, as Michael Moore(?) and others have said, corporations are legal sociopaths.

Check that line in the Declaration of Independence about our not changing the forms to which we are accustomed.

This article helped me understand, in part, why corporations have taken over.

...executive compensation has shifted dramatically since 1986. Company stock and stock options soared from 24% of compensation in the 1980s to 60% in the 2000s. As a result, executives today are more fixated on their corporation’s stock price and their capital gains rate.
