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.

Great quotes, Ruth! (Especially Elizabeth Warren: "calling on Donald Trump... is like if your house is on fire, calling an arsonist.")

On the Republican Party in general:

We have an economy that’s in real trouble. But when the economy is in this kind of trouble, calling on Donald Trump for help is like if your house in on fire, calling an arsonist. He started out rich and he cheated his way to getting richer. That is not going to build an America for hard-working people. [emphasis mine]

Elizabeth Warren

Watch: Elizabeth Warren to Colbert: 'Calling Donald Trump for Help ...

Good link, Bertold. I especially like:

Oh, dear, sweet, dumb Republicans,...
It's laughable that a group of psychopaths believes that the psychopath who likes to disembowel his prey and dance with the innards is just a little too crazy to support. [order mine]

Just a little too crazy... tRump

The Rude Pundit put up a great love letter to Republicans today.

Note to Republicans: You Own Trump, You Psychopaths

Bishop Lang may have his own self-interest in mind.

A nickel says that he will soon leave the Church and come out as an atheist.

"Trump Is Winning Even Though 66% of Us Don't Like Him...."

Brilliant!

Add the numbers of those who support all the other Repub candidates and assume that none of them consider Trump a second choice!

Yeah, brilliant.

If Lang receives a reprimand, or gets negative propaganda, or is required to recant because of his statement, then I hope to hear a loud roar of protest from every mouth using megaphones to denounce those who would challenge his position. 

Lang's speech ought also ring from the rooftops for all to hear. Take heed Pope, lest you go down as Ozymandias.

Daniel - I don't think it is technically. Whether or not it's acceptable in polite company depends on your view of grammar - descriptive or prescriptive.
