If your god wouldn’t do anything about it beforehand, why would it do something about it afterwards? Just because you ask it?

A smattering of writings from Caitlin Johnstone on Venezuela.

Filed under: Food, Greed, Harm, History, News, Political, Questions — Scottie @ 15:14

Firstly, Maduro is not refusing humanitarian aid for his people. Only an idiot would believe that the latest Official Bad Guy (who coincidentally happens to be sitting on top of the largest oil reserves on earth) is intentionally starving and depriving his people, and anyone who makes such claims should have to explain how they make that work in their minds. What’s the idea behind that, exactly? Is he starving them all and cutting them off from medical supplies because he hates them? Is he trying to kill everyone in Venezuela so that he can have the entire country to himself? Does he have some strange sexual fetish for the slow starvation of an entire citizenry? How specifically does this work?

Again a religionist tries to force a false history filled with his religious views on public schools.

Oklahoma Lawmaker Wants to Push Christian Revisionist History in Public Schools

https://friendlyatheist.patheos.com/2019/02/16/oklahoma-lawmaker-wants-to-push-christian-revisionist-history-in-public-schools/

Christian nationalists are always looking for ways to use our public schools to promote their warped, revisionist version of U.S. history. Myths like Christianity and the Bible playing a central role at the Constitutional Convention (nope, and it didn’t include a formal prayer either), like George Washingtonpraying in the snow at Valley Forge (he didn’t), or the Ten Commandments forming the basis of our laws (not even close).

We all know where this is going.

Bullard is seeking to use the machinery of the state to promote Christian nationalism and its bad history. He wants public school history classes in Oklahoma to be live versions of Hobby Lobby’s wildly misleading July 4 ads.

Instead, the founders chose to keep state and church separate. The “wall of separation” between state and church is an American original. The idea was floating around in the Enlightenment, but it was first implemented in the American Experiment. It’s right there in the first words of our Constitution: “We the people.” Those words are poetic, but also declare that power comes from people, not gods. That was revolutionary. America invented the separation of state and church, and we ought to be proud of that fact.

if and when these preachers get control of the Republican party, and they’re sure trying to do so

Filed under: Atheism, Bigotry, Fascism, Harm, History, News, Political, Questions, Reason, Religion — Scottie @ 16:16

“Mark my word, if and when these preachers get control of the [Republican] party, and they’re sure trying to do so, it’s going to be a terrible damn problem. Frankly, these people frighten me. Politics and governing demand compromise. But these Christians believe they are acting in the name of God, so they can’t and won’t compromise. I know, I’ve tried to deal with them.”

McConnell has betrayed the younger generation

Filed under: Asshole / Jerk, Bigotry, Criminal, Fascism, History, News, Political, Questions, Reason — Scottie @ 19:05

McConnell has betrayed the younger generation; he has saddled a progressive generation full of aspirations and dreams with old conservative quasi-religious white men, as far from progressive as their macho aggro bullying behaviour at High School predicted they would become.

The old fart McConnell sees only his years and years of political manipulation, his great achievement of subverting the Constitution and taking the future of the David Hogg and Zac Wahls generation hostage.

That is an achievement ?
Most reasonable fair minded and decent people think he is a cunt.

The stupid, it burns !

GOP Lawmaker Lori Saine: Blacks And Whites Were Lynched In ‘Nearly Equal Numbers’

https://www.patheos.com/blogs/progressivesecularhumanist/2019/01/gop-lawmaker-lori-saine-blacks-and-whites-were-lynched-in-nearly-equal-numbers/

Colorado lawmaker Lori Saine celebrated MLK Day by making the ridiculous claim that blacks and whites were lynched “in nearly equal numbers” following Reconstruction.

Speaking on the Colorado House floor on Monday, State Rep. Lori Saine made the claim that blacks and whites were lynched “in nearly equal numbers” following Reconstruction, and went on to insist that the real reason blacks were lynched was not the color of their skin, but because they were Republicans.

The stupid, it burns.

Philips told NBC News that some of the youths who surrounded him had chanted slogans in favour of President Trump’s border wall. “Chants of ‘Build the wall’ and other things that were even worse,” he said. “They were brought up to believe I’m less than human.”

“I’m still trying to process it,” Phillips said. “Who they were, who those young folks were, where they came from and who’s bringing them up. Where were the chaperones? How did this come to take this point? It’s gonna take us all to come together. I’m about prayer, but then you have to have some action to go with it.”
