via Will Religious Freedom Continue to Ring?
If America persecutes Christians so badly, she should try living in Pakistan, Iran, or North Korea. THEN she can grouse & kvetch about persecution & ” oppression “, etc.
Oddly enough, in half a heartbeat, these same folks would start a theocracy where no differing opinions, views or expressions thereof would be tolerated. But Christians should be given a free pass, I guess…..
Trust me, any group would get the same ” no confidence ” vote from me – Religious, extreme Dawkins atheist, neo – Conservative, Uber – Liberal or extreme vegan. Religious extremists get little to no sympathy from me even in the U.S. Bible Belt anymore than any other group.
Well. I must’ve been mistaken. Or half – awake. Or BOTH. I thought I read a Beliefnet piece taking up for The Donald being persecuted for his faith ( although I think that he believes that he’s God. 🙂 ). Personally I think his whole campaign has been a multi – gazillion dollar publicity stunt.
Hey – if he wants he can move Trump Towers, Trump Plaza AND his casinos airlifted & shipped a section at a time to an island in the Pacific ( he could do Nauru Island a WORLD of good. Look up Nauru to see what I mean. Or Pitcairn. ) or someplace in the Caribbean.
His ego would take up 2 / 3rds of the space.
I also believe that Ann Coulter is a secret liberal who fakes being a raging hyper – conservative. 🙂

Apparently Beliefnet doesn’t like the concept of ” Separation of Church & State “. Pity.
The Right – Wing extremists ( OK, a LOT of them, but not every single one. ) would like nothing better than a Christian theocracy. They don’t speak for everyone. & quite frankly reading their spiel about ” Getting God back into government ” is getting a mite tedious. And they’re predominantly Republican, so – ” NO Votes For You ! Come Back 4 Years ! ” ( Paraphrasing Seinfeld’s ” Soup Nazi ” character ).

This is too true : too many people link ” Socialist ” & ” Communist ” together. This guy took the words right out of my ” mouth ” ( in a manner of speaking ). Sanders is a NEW ( to some ) type of Democrat & an alternative to the GOP – ” Party of ‘ NO ‘, also of fear, paranoia, hatred & bigotry “. I’m sorry, but it’s true, & the Hillary Clinton Democrats who want to be beholden to Big Business. He seems to be a very viable candidate.

Again, an endorsement by Sarah Palin is a potential ” kiss of death ” for a political campaign. Her track record speaks for itself – She gets into a race, she leaves. She gets elected or appointed, she leaves. Doesn’t speak well for her character. Even the Grand Dame of the GOP, Barbara Bush advised her to do the GOP a favour & stay in Alaska on her front porch. Even John McCain admits that picking Sarah Palin as his VP running mate was a mistake.
If a Republican decides to run for something, local or more Capitol – centric, & Sarah offers to endorse their effort – Lock the door ! Don’t accept any calls !
Sarah Palin was supposed to be endorsing Donald Trump, but within moments of taking the stage, Palin unleashed a demented and mentally unstable rant about President Obama.

I still find it credibility – straining that Martin Luther King, Jr., was a Republican as some people have claimed. Yes, it’s true ( Or at least accepted ) the Republican party favored abolishing slavery, but the Republican party of that period was probably radically different from TODAY’s Republican Party. In fact I’d bet even money on it.
The GOP is the party of the Gulf War, ” hawks “, the one – percent, the crushers of dreams, that could care LESS about the environment, equal rights for all, health care, truth. They seem to care about a Christian Taliban more than the Constitution, & whether or not one is sleeping with someone of the same sex.
Together with the Religious Right, they seem to favor a theocracy with dashes of George Orwell’s ” Big Brother ” mixed in.
Hardly anything Dr. King would approve of.
Despite the Civil Rights Movement, racism is as rampant in America as it was when Dr. King marched and revealed his dream.

Yeah – If you consider Hades to be a Promised Land, sure. Trump will lead the white supremacists there. He’ll promise anybody anything. I wrote in another post that Trump could not be the Biblical ” Anti – Christ “, because, while Trump has followers & charisma similar to the Anti – Christ, The Donald is also a clown & a bully whom everyone else thinks is an ass with a VERY high opinion of himself.
If this orange – haired bozo makes it into the White House, it’ll be proof that ” The Land of the Free ” is also the land of the extremely gullible – & also the day that Satan rides to work in a snow – plow to oversee the opening of an NHL training camp.:) & Satan will be bullied by The Donald.
White supremacists, convinced they are somehow an oppressed group, think Donald Trump will lead them to a mysterious promised land

And people like this whack – job will help bring about the end of the world. Trump has some crazy followers.

Everything wrong & screwed – up with Trump & his hateful ignorant hypocritical ilk in a single parody video.
In parody there is often at least a KERNEL of truth – Veritas !

ONLY 9 things ? C’mon guys, you’re not trying hard enough…..
Excuse Pat Robertson, he’s old, decrepit, he probably has maybe a few years left before he goes to face whoever & answer for his stupidity, ignorance & corruption.
Excuse me, I’m usually more charitable than this, & I can be a really nice l’il fella 95 % of the time, but these looney – toons bring out the worst in me when I read about their collective / singular weirdness.
