11. Republicans - evangelical or not - have not 'lost their way.'

They have finally fathered into a group that gives them an excuse for their immoral lifestyles and beliefs and thanks to the media their behavior has been legitimized by calling it a political party.

Think. Again.

You're correct, they have NOT lost their way.

Total corruption, deceit, maliciousness, and the destruction of our Democracy has been their goal all along.

They are following their chosen path very well.

when we consider how FQX and their kin tell these lies over & over 24/7, Rs are truly a brainwashed cult.

And now they have a Lord & Savior.

That is what I think about the GOP. Seems like they can't get a seat at the table any other way.

I have pulled my hair out over the course of my life with their disingenuousness, but post 9-11 they went from all the well crafted talking points to just waking up and seeing what the biggest issue was on any given day and blaming it on the democrats, and with rise of 45 now are in this feral state of trying to out do one another to say the most outlandish thing they can think of to get the most love from the zombie base.

14. God has become just another propaganda tool for the filthy-rich

The Supremes could never have pushed us back into 1800s laws on women and minorities without a god.

Where would all the crap about the Stinking Nazi being a chosen vessel be without a super daddy in the sky?

Forcing book banning, prayer and female submission back into public issues would have gone nowhere if there wasn't an imaginary misogynistic god supporting it.

So now god is no more than a bludgeoning tool for the filthy-rich to beat up on the masses with. It's used to keep us all buying into a dysfunctional and stagnant economic system. An economic system that topples and crashes whenever a problem comes along. An economic system that causes more problems than it solves.

When was it ever anything else? I mean, most of history has demonstrated that governments and leaders have always found deities a convenient means to force submission of people as individuals or as entire populations.

16. Actually the bible doesn't say "thou shalt not lie"
Fri May 10, 2024, 04:51 PM

It says "thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor" which is a specific kind of lie. Of course they break it anyway.

Also, I've heard it said that the literal translation of another commandment is "thou shalt nor murder", which is a specific kind of killing.

Perhaps that's how stoning is justified. I dunno.

Thou shalt not bear false witness against the lord, thy god

Which all those evangelical hypocrites are most certainly doing in multiple ways.
