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.

We all know there are predatory men and women and I am not denying it.What is the rate of men and women rapes? Sadly, rape is grossly under-reported, especially men who are raped. 1 in 5 women and 1 in 71 men in the United States has been raped in…Continue

Great article about the redacted interview, Joan. But, "When I said wiretapping, it was in quotes," wasn't true, so that should have been redacted too. 

If TV prerecorded every political speech and interview and ad, and redacted everything that wasn't verifiable truth, it would go a long way toward sanity.

Give Trump a truth pill and it wouldn't let him swallow it.

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on March 26, 2017 at 5:26pm

Great point, Joan. It's his kind of charlatanism that shouldn't receive a cent of government spending, but unfortunately we're headed in the opposite direction.

Comment by Joan Denoo on March 26, 2017 at 4:27pm

Bertold, odd that Donohue makes the same argument and for the same reason I do not want my tax dollars paying for churches, temples, mosques, and whatever else houses religious bodies. 

"It’s time we stopped giving the arts a privileged position and cut their funding. The same is true for publicly funded radio and TV programming that has a history of insulting the majority of Americans."

We Redacted Everything That's Not a Verifiably True Statement From ...

"In the full transcript of the interview published by Time, Trump lies a lot, says a number of half-true things, does not admit he was incorrect to link Ted Cruz’s father with Lee Harvey Oswald, foists responsibility for his inaccuracies onto media reports that he misrepresents, says the word “Brexit” 11 times, and forms sentences like “Brussels, I said, Brussels is not Brussels.” But, listen, some of it was fine! In the transcript below, we have redacted everything that is not verifiably true. What remains is everything the president said that is definitely true."

Catholic League Endorses Trump’s Gutting Of The Arts Because “Perverts” Shouldn’t Get Federal Money

From Donohue's press release:

"Justice demands that these agencies should be eliminated: Taxpayers should not be forced to pay for assaults on their religion. Christians constitute roughly 75 percent of the population; Catholics are approximately 25 percent of the total. In the name of “art,” these Americans are expected to pay for irreverent exhibits, but depictions that are reverential—such as a nativity scene outside City Hall—are denied a dime. It’s time we stopped giving the arts a privileged position and cut their funding. The same is true for publicly funded radio and TV programming that has a history of insulting the majority of Americans."
The press release goes on at some length to recount the many times Donohue personally protested outside of plays and art exhibits that offended his tender feewings.

As to the SCOTUS seat stolen from Merrick Garland, tell Senate Dems to grow some backbone and oppose Gorsuch's unindicted coconspirators in the Senate.

GOP majorities in state legislatures can gerrymander US House districts but cannot gerrymander state boundaries so Dems can run competitive candidates.

What do we do about a President Pence?
Here are two of our options.
1) Support church & state separation groups: ACLU, AU, FFRF, NCSE (National Cte for Science Educ), etc.
2) Recognize that legislators pander to xians and introduce bills that will die in committee without being heard, so don't go into panic mode unduly.

Once tRump is gone, what do we do about a President Pence?

Anyway, about more immediate news...

Neil Gorsuch during his confirmation hearings, being asked “...and what’s your stance on receiving stolen goods?..” as he holds an empty Supreme Court justice’s seat labeled “PROPERTY OF MERRICK GARLAND”

Well, this is interesting:

President Pence, anyone?  What do you think it will take for the Republican congress to begin impeachment proceedings?
