Helping the poor and needy! What sort of religion is that? Socialists! 🙂

I sure do miss (Methodist) Betty, never more than when Christian Crazy needs sorting out.

Today we live in a world where religion permeates every aspect of our lives, even if we don’t consider ourselves religious. . . . Political decisions, constitutional law and our moral compass are judged each day by people who claim religious superiority. . .

Myths weren’t simple tales about Gods and heroes, but truth presented in a way that helped the ancients deal with life and death. They were focused on the elusive, somber and often tragic elements of being human. . .

[C]onsider the origins of our God and how our God can still be a valid part of modern day culture and more importantly valid to us as individual citizens in that society.

The denomination founded by John Wesley supports liberal causes? How shocking!

In other news, the Pope was discovered to be Catholic and living in Rome…

If I get the Tea Party’s drift then, they claim all the conservative churches and schools, all the cities and states they consider “real” American, all the natural resources, federal courts and government including unilateral power over marriage, the military, the money, motherhood . . . and then everything else is banned, burned, dismantled or deported.

Mostly the money and power.

Colbert took a swipe at me-first Christians on his 12/16/10 show but I can’t get the video to play. Defeated by technology! 🙂

The Humbug Express:

Hey, has anyone noticed that “A Christmas Carol” is a dangerous leftist tract?

. . . I guess we should never assume malice when ignorance remains a possibility. . . [but] in this holiday season, let’s remember the wisdom of Ebenezer Scrooge . . . about the prevalence of humbug.

The truly disturbing part of this:

“(There’s nothing comparable on the left, which has fallen far behind in the humbug race.)”

Why not urge more “government jobs?” They still pay the rent. But no. That would take an organized communication machine on the left. Maybe ours could be based on actual facts.

Like this, you mean?

But that only gets part of the people there. We could do well in a unified nation of fact-based folks I think. Education was supposedly meant to create that reality. How’s that working out for us?
