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.

Yeah, super-cool. The Texas grand jury found in Planned P'hood's favor and indicted the anti-abortion activists who made the video. They might go to prison for a few years.

Leave it to some Texas officials to refuse to accept the grand jury's finding and "investigate" further.

We can count on conservatives to love government when it helps them and to hate government when it helps others.

Ditto for billionaires.

Tom, speaking of paternity suits (which you weren't exactly) when Jesus comes back, is he going to be calling you "Dad"?? Of course he'd also have to call you "me." Come to think of it, you could be the source of Don McLean's lyrics.

Joan, if I had written the line whose paternity Bert denies, my final sentence would have been "Fear is a better word."

Sorry, Joan, but I don't recall those as being my words. But I do heartily agree with them.

Bertold, I embrace your rant on Dec. 5 and have it pasted on my desktop. You say it, just the way I feel it! 

" I am heartily fed up with alleged Christians" who pretend theirs is a belief based in love. Hate is a better word.

Joan, what have you got against bloated toads to malign them that way???
