But What is Their Position on Chickens Coming Home to Roost? Also, Fundamentalist Mob Leader Bush Didn't Go to Church?

I wish the new President well in his search. The United Church of Christ (UCC) invited President-elect Barack Obama to join a local congregation near the White House, anticipating the first family’s desire to worship in public despite risks to their image and safety. The church, which is the same denomination that Obama and his […]

How quickly would the MSM have jumped on this statement had Sarah Palin made it? “Catholic social doctrine as I was taught it is, you take care of people who need the help the most,” he said. “Now it’d be different if you could make the case to me that by giving this tax cut […]

Y’know, for a group of folks who so decry the so-called Religious Right, progressives sure know how to run an Inquisition. Dig this quote from an Obama supporter. “But the Republican party has consistently used the religious right to say ‘we’re Christians,’ to say ‘we don’t believe in this and we don’t believe in that.’ […]

For those of you who know people who can’t stop caterwauling about the looming Theocracy in America, please introduce them to what I like to call The First Church of Chavez (via protein wisdom). It’s his church, bankrolled with his stolen oil money and purposed to condemn liberty and capitalism at every turn. Lest you […]

Well, there you go. John Hagee, an influential Texas televangelist who endorsed John McCain, apologized to Catholics Tuesday for his stinging criticism of the Roman Catholic Church and for having “emphasized the darkest chapters in the history of Catholic and Protestant relations with the Jews.” … In a letter to William Donohue, president of the […]

I expect that we’ll be hearing about this story a time or two. Albert Einstein described belief in God as “childish superstition” and said Jews were not the chosen people, in a letter to be sold in London this week, an auctioneer said Tuesday. The father of relativity, whose previously known views on religion have […]

Separation of Church and State (Islam not Included)

So, are we to the point where a little Sharia and Islam in schools is good but even a molecule of any Christian religion is bad? It sure looks like it. I think we’re well to the point where our stupidly slavish devotion to multiculturalism has overcome what we think of the separation of church […]

Lie of the Month and the Missing Mission of Obama's Church

| March 16, 2008 | 27 Replies

Barack Obama’s church has told the Lie of the Month when it said that, “Trinity United Church of Christ’s ministry is inclusive and global.” That, alone, would be bad enough, but the public statement from the church tells me a lot more about the church than Wright’s sermons ever could. Here’s a paragraph from the […]

When this article showed up in my RSS reader yesterday, I meant to write something about it. I decided to wait, though, because it seemed like one of those stories where the initial reporting was just not right. Here’s the lede: Drug pushers, the obscenely rich, environmental polluters and “manipulative” genetic scientists beware – you […]

Deepak Chopra's Buddy Christ

I don’t think that Deepak Chopra needs to find a new Jesus. It looks to me like he’s invented a brand new one just fine all by himself. It’s a shame that he speaks with such conviction and apparent expertise while being so wrong about basic, generic Christian theology. I won’t get into those because […]
