Rampant Denial About the Threat Posed By Christian Dominionists, Perry and Bachmann
Post Date: 2011-08-23 13:48:03 by Brian S
Sometimes the truth really is stranger than fiction, at least as perceived by members of a culture removed from a particular truth. Today's strange truth is the fact of the Christian dominionist influence on the beliefs of right-wing evangelicals, and in particular, on the worldviews of Rep. Michele Bachmann and Texas gov. Rick Perry, two top-tier contenders for the Republican presidential nomination. Dominionism, an academic term for a strain of evangelical Christianity that mandates believers to take over the institutions of society in order to implement God's law on earth, flows from the theology of Christian Reconstructionism, whose proponents see as their ultimate goal the ...
Glenn Beck Brings Firebreathing Rhetoric Back to Israel
Post Date: 2011-08-22 20:01:39 by Brian S
Glenn Beck is in Israel, again. In July, the talk radio host and former Fox News star was invited to the Kensset, where he met a room full of admirers in the words of a Channel 1 report led by Likud MK Danny Danon. Beck urged Israelis to stand strong; among those shaking his hand was Baruch Marzel, former chairman of the outlawed Kach movement. Yet it seems that this honor wasnt enough for Beck, who is back for a couple of Israeli rallies this week under the name of Restoring Courage. Americans are by now very familiar with the wild and irresponsible side of politics that Beck represents. Beck stokes hate among ethnic groups and pays little ...
Storm Lashes Pope, Pilgrims At Youth Festival
Post Date: 2011-08-20 19:12:49 by Brian S
By Elisa Santafe (AFP) 3 hours ago MADRID A violent storm lashed Pope Benedict XVI and around one million pilgrims at an open-air service in Madrid, forcing him to cut short his speech and drenching the faithful who had waited for hours in blistering heat. As the heavens opened during World Youth Day celebrations Saturday night, Benedict's skullcap was swept off and an assistant tried to shelter the 84-year-old pontiff with a large white umbrella. The pope, his white hair blown into disarray, gripped a copy of his sodden speech, the pages and his vestments flapping in the wind. A sea of pilgrims, by some reports more than a million, tried to take shelter under large ...

Post Date: 2011-08-19 20:23:22 by Brian S
SAN LORENZO DE EL ESCORIAL, Spain Pope Benedict XVI Friday warned of an "eclipse of God" as he spoke to nuns outside a 16th century Spanish monastery during protest-hit Catholic youth celebrations. About 1,600 nuns clapped and cheered as the 84-year-old pontiff arrived at the monastery of San Lorenzo de El Escorial, some 47 kilometres (29 miles) west of Madrid. "Your lives must testify to the personal encounter with Christ which has nourished your consecration, and to all the transforming power of that encounter," said the pope, wearing a white cassock and skull-cap. "This is all the more important today when we see a certain 'eclipse of God' ...

Manhunt On For Ex-Marine Oathkeeper Accused Of Child Rape
Post Date: 2011-08-17 11:35:44 by Brian S
Authorities in Oklahoma are on the hunt for a man who didn't show up for a court appearance Monday for his rape trial, and who has ties to the Oathkeeper movement and believes his arrest was part of a government conspiracy. Charles Dyer, a former U.S. Marine who served in Iraq, was arrested and charged in January of 2010 on two separate counts -- one charge of possessing an unregistered grenade launcher that was registered as stolen from a military base in California, and one charge of raping a minor. In April, a judge declared a mistrial after the jury couldn't reach a decision. On Monday, Dyer was scheduled to appear in court for the beginning of the new trial, but did not. His ...

A Christian Plot for Domination?
Post Date: 2011-08-15 11:51:02 by Brian S
Michele Bachmann and Rick Perry aren't just devoutboth have deep ties to a fringe fundamentalist movement known as Dominionism, which says Christians should rule the world. by Michelle Goldberg | August 14, 2011 10:51 PM EDT With Tim Pawlenty out of the presidential race, it is now fairly clear that the GOP candidate will either be Mitt Romney or someone who makes George W. Bush look like Tom Paine. Of the three most plausible candidates for the Republican nomination, two are deeply associated with a theocratic strain of Christian fundamentalism known as Dominionism. If you want to understand Michele Bachmann and Rick Perry, understanding Dominionism ...
Establishment Media Admits Conspiracy To Ignore Ron Paul
Post Date: 2011-08-15 11:47:15 by hondo68
Despite Ron Paul's overwhelming success in Saturday's Ames straw poll, finishing second to Michele Bachmann by less than two hundred votes, in an astounding video establishment media talking heads admit what we've been highlighting from the very start -- that there is a deliberate policy to sideline, ignore and discredit Paul's campaign. After pointing out that Ron Paul only lost to Michele Bachmann by a tiny percentage (and that after accusations that Bachmann's campaign attempted to rig the result by buying 4,000 votes), and that the Ames result was virtually a "tie for first," Politico's Roger Simon said the reason for him being ignored was that ...

Joe Raedle/Getty Images EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (KMOX) - The public housing complexes on the east side of the river might just be the deadliest places in the country, but efforts are underway to secure the area. Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) is bringing in federal law enforcement to help state and local authorities crack down on crime. Figures show that East St. Louis is nearly twice as dangerous as even the worst streets in Chicago. "You will find that the crime rate here is the worst in the nation," Durbin says. "The club scene in East St. Louis is a crime scene." Durbin says that although the public housing complexes are managed federally, their problems come from local ...

Radio host Alex Jones flew into a rage Tuesday over the so-called super committee created during recent debt ceiling negotiations, warning it would be used to seize all privately owned firearms in an orgy of mass murder and death. Hey, hey, heres the deal, Jones told a caller. Were just approaching the event horizon, the orgy of mass murder and death.

Washington Court Upholds Religious Slaughter
Post Date: 2011-08-03 17:02:48 by Brian S
A Washington state appellate court ruled against an animal protection groups bid to strike down as unconstitutional a law protecting religious slaughter. The three-judge panel of the Washington Court of Appeals on July 25 was unanimous in rejecting the suit brought by Pasados Safe Haven. The state law defines as humane stunning an animal before slaughter, which is the conventional means of slaughter, and severing the carotid artery, which it says is in accordance with the ritual requirements of (a) religious faith. The latter method is used in Jewish and Muslim ritual slaughter. Pasados said the law was unconstitutional in part because it favored religious ...

NASHVILLE Tennessees latest woes include high unemployment, continuing foreclosures and a battle over collective-bargaining rights for teachers.

Post Date: 2011-07-29 17:00:37 by Brian S
The United States Air Force has been training young missile officers about the morals and ethics of launching nuclear weapons by citing passages from the New Testament and commentary from a former member of the Nazi Party, according to newly released documents. The mandatory Nuclear Ethics and Nuclear Warfare session, which includes a discussion on St. Augustine's "Christian Just War Theory," is led by Air Force chaplains and takes place during a missile officer's first week in training at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California. St. Augustine's "Qualifications for Just War," according to the way it is cited in a 43-page PowerPoint presentation, are: ...
Summer Camp, Tea Party Style; What better way to build lasting memories than with a group reading of Atlas Shrugged?
Post Date: 2011-07-28 19:26:37 by Brian S
iStock; Getty Images: Photo Illustration by Taylor Shute Nothing beats the memories we make at summer camp. Leaping into a cold lake. Toasting marshmallows over a bonfire. Being lectured about how socialism erodes the ambition of the individual. That last bit of good-time summer fun comes courtesy of the Tea Party, whose members in Tampa, Fla., recently organized a camp for children aged eight to 12. They called it Liberty Schooland being a camper there answered certain questions (How does government undermine my free will?) while raising others (Why are my parents doing this to me?). What could be more thrilling for a kid than to spend a summers day ...
Christian Jihad? Why We Should Worry About Right-Wing Terror Attacks Like Norway's in the US
Post Date: 2011-07-26 14:25:38 by Brian S
The Norwegian police on Saturday charged a 32-year-old man, whom they identified as a Christian fundamentalist with right-wing connections, over the bombing of a government center and a shooting attack on a nearby island that together left at least 91 people dead. In my new book "Sex, Mom and God" I predicted just such an action. I predicted that right wing Christians will unleash terror here in America too. I predict that they will copy Islamic extremists, and may eventually even make common cause with them. There is a growing movement in America that equates godliness with hatred of our government in fact hatred of our country as fallen and evil because we allow women choice, ...
Why Conservatives Behave More Like a Bizarre Religious Cult, Than a Legitimate Political Entity
Post Date: 2011-07-26 13:00:45 by Brian S
It is easy to get caught up in every rivulet of the default crisis as we approach the inevitable cascade of market panics followed byshock doctrine cuts to social services. It is easy to find fault with the Administration for its many flaws in handling the situation, and with Congressional Democrats as well. But it's also important to remember the big picture. The big picture is that America is being held hostage by a conservative movement that behaves much more as a bizarre religious cult, than a legitimate political entity. It is perhaps the most dangerous cult to have ever held sway over a major nation-state in modern times. It is a cult founded on a number of dogmatic beliefs that ...
America Abandoning Israel By Its Demands
Post Date: 2011-07-26 12:58:46 by Brian S
On Sept. 11, 2001, America faced the worst attack on its mainland in history. Was it an indication that God had lifted his hand of protection from America a curse for President Bill Clinton trying to barter away Jerusalem eight months before? The offer was rejected because Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat was not satisfied with a portion. He wanted all of Israel. Now, 10 years later, President Obama wants the United States to abandon Israel by demanding they give away more of their Holy Land promised to them over 3,000 years ago. Obama claims to be a Christian, but obviously has not read his Bible. I will bless thou that bless you, and I will curse him who curses you. And in ...
Who Added "Christian" and "Conservative" to Norway Shooter's Facebook Page Yesterday?
Post Date: 2011-07-24 21:50:22 by hondo68
While the leftist and Islamic supremacist ghouls rush to portray Norway mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik as a Christian and even as an anti-jihadist, the unanswered questions multiply. Why did a jihad group take credit for the atrocities, and then retract? And who altered the murderer's Facebook page? Yesterday, at the time that his name was released, his Facebook page looked like this (hat tip Vivien for the screenshots): But shortly thereafter, this screenshot started circulating, of an altered Facebook page on which Breivik identified himself as a Christian and a conservative: (screenshot hat tip Vivien) Did he have two different Facebook pages, one in Norwegian and one ...
