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.

Tom, since you're suffering from a shortage, here's some German bathroom humor. It's been (almost certainly apocryphally) attributed to Goethe.

Auch in dieser edlen Kunst gibt es Dilettanten:
Künstler treffen in das Loch, Stümper auf die Kanten

Gerald, sainthood and political power bestow the authority that deranged believers or realistic subjects recognise and obey.

I never mentioned political powers or realistic subjects obeying, I mentioned saints and since you have to be dead to be a saint I hardly think subjects obeying authority answers my question.

Bert, I'm okay with Oscar and you not being in this world for the purpose of airing your moral prejudices.

After 12 years in RC schools I'm still airing guilt. :)

As for humor, I'm offsprung from a bunch of Germans. In 1914 someone told a German joke. In 1937 someone told another.

Tom--
"Rather than persuading"
I agree with Oscar that we are not in this world for the purpose of airing our moral predjudices. In other words, persuading is against my religious principles.

Are you plagued by a strange immunity to humor?

The cartoon below about children is from Conservapedia's version. Phyllis Schafley's (sp?) son took the socialism from the KJV.

Bert, where is Hellholes R Us?

You earned that for guilt-tripping rather than persuading!

Gerald, sainthood and political power bestow the authority that deranged believers or realistic subjects recognize and obey.

Without obedience, authority doesn't exist.

If you're interested enough, do some introspection.

It's difficult to find words to describe the deranged logic in it.

If anybody knows what authority sainthood actually bestows on anyone I'd be interested to find out.

CALIFORNIA TRIBES DENOUNCE CATHOLIC CHURCH’S “FRAUD” AND “BLATANT F...

Several representatives of California tribes held a press conference Tuesday at Washington D.C.’s Plymouth Congregational United Church of Christ to proclaim the opposition of more than 50 tribes to the canonization of Junipero Serra, which is set to take place just down the road on Wednesday afternoon. One speaker called the canonization mass that Pope Francis will conduct “a disastrous celebration of slavery and cultural termination.” [Read: Why Serra Should Not Be a Saint, by scholar Jacqueline Hidalgo.]
