The Bible tells me so

The Bible tells me so

  Dalai Lama, Jason Collins, Leviticus and You. By Robert De Filippis From the Dalai lama, "The purpose of religion is to control yourself, not to criticize others. How much am I doing about my anger, attachment, hatred, pride and jealousy? These are the things which we must check in our daily lives." Let's see, how can we fracture that advice this week? Oh, Oh, I know, let's criticize and condemn Jason Collins for being the first openly gay NBA Player. Hey, while we're at it, let's ... Full Story

The Christian Right’s Failed Prophecies

The Christian Right’s Failed Prophecies

  Notable (and Hilarious) Examples of the Christian Right's Failed Prophecies   The people who claim to be the conduits of God's will are scam artists.

Stalin Invented ‘American Exceptionalism’

Stalin Invented ‘American Exceptionalism’

  How Joseph Stalin Invented 'American Exceptionalism' Rick Santorum and the rest of GOP presidential gang all have a man-crush. Considering he was an outright intellectual elitist, a shaggy-haired liberal, and -- horror of horrors -- French, the object of their adoration seems a bit surprising, but the French aristocrat Alexis de Tocqueville and his 1835 United States travelogue, Democracy in America, have surged into national politics this campaign cycle -- often linked to the nascent ...

What Bible Is the GOP Reading

What Bible Is the GOP Reading

    What Bible Is Santorum Reading? By Mike Lux When conservative Congressman Todd Akin a few months back suggested that liberalism was a "hatred of God," I postulated that given the overwhelming support for liberal and progressive values in the Judeo-Christian Bible, perhaps he had never bothered to actually read the Bible. With Rick Santorum's recent comment that Obama's agenda is "Some phony theology. Oh, not a theology based on the Bible. A different theology," I am now ... Full Story

The state of Cain in the modern world

The state of Cain in the modern world

    21 February 2012 Dear Editor: It is not just wishful thinking that states can live without the death penalty. Generally, states that do not have capital punishment have lower homicide rates than states that have capital punishment. People of New Testament times need to consider what Jesus did when asked about the legality of divorce. Jesus was aware of His present time and of what the law stated, but He referenced a time before the law was ever given to reveal what God's ... Full Story

Who Would Jesus Vote For?

Who Would Jesus Vote For?

      Should Christians Ask: Who Would Jesus Vote For? By Doug Bandow Evangelical churches long have been called the Republican Party at prayer. The observation might be close to true in Iowa. And that should make American Christians nervous about their future in politics. The relationship of religion and politics has been fraught with controversy since America's founding. In Europe a brutal mixture of church and state harmed both institutions: faith was perverted by power, ... Full Story

Political satire by Katha Pollitt,  Trying to find humor in politics     Rick Perry, God and Me: When I Got the Call By Katha Pollitt God called me a couple of months ago and told me to run for president.
