Holy Monday!

The Megachurch of the Almighty Zealot, The Lakewood Church, TX

Donald Trump’s ideological vacuum, the more he is isolated and attacked, is being filled by the Christian right. This Christianized fascism, with its network of megachurches, schools, universities and law schools and its vast radio and television empire, is a potent ally for a beleaguered White House. The Christian right has been organizing and preparing to take power for decades. If the nation suffers another economic collapse, which is probably inevitable, another catastrophic domestic terrorist attack or a new war, President Trump’s ability to force the Christian right’s agenda on the public and shut down dissent will be dramatically enhanced. In the presidential election, Trump had 81 percent of white evangelicals behind him.

Trump’s moves to restrict abortion, defund Planned Parenthood, permit discrimination against LGBT people in the name of “religious liberty” and allow churches to become active in politics by gutting the Johnson Amendment, along with his nominations of judges championed by the Federalist Society and his call for a ban on Muslim immigrants, have endeared him to the Christian right. He has rolled back civil rights legislation and business and environmental regulations. He has elevated several stalwarts of the Christian right into power—Mike Pence to the vice presidency, Jeff Sessions to the Justice Department, Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, Betsy DeVos to the Department of Education, Tom Price to Health and Human Services and Ben Carson to Housing and Urban Development. He embraces the white supremacy, bigotry, American chauvinism, greed, religious intolerance, anger and racism that define the Christian right.

    Self entitled Idiots-O-Plenty, humanities’ disgusting side in full view to expose the worthlessness of their cause along with the massiveness of their numbers, witness mind control in action.

    Unfortunately due to Education having been given a back seat to self indulgence, humanity has taken a turn for the worst as seen above.

    To go down Religion Road is going to that dark area in the mind where responsibility goes to a third party, being more of a tool for some imagined grand cause relinquishing critical thinking skills to the dustbin.

    Religion is not good for humanity, it divides and militarizes, it turns people against one another, and removes a part of a persons life replacing it with dogma and submission, not healthy for humans nor progress.

    Peoples differences cannot be changed, they will believe what they want to believe but imposing their beliefs on others crosses the line, MYOB comes to mind (Mind Your Own Business), put your views back in your head and leave them there and leave others alone.
