TJ replied to Mary's discussion 'It would seem that Carson isn't the only candidate with a crazy religious background'
"If it prevented the rest of the world from developing the eventual ability to colonize other worlds, THEN it could result in the end of humanity. I'm pretty sure that humanity in general consists of more than the US, I think I saw some map with…"

"Since moneyed elites rule the United States, Dominionism won't be a disaster for them. Saying its success "would ... mark the end of humanity" is a huge leap over some necessary logic. America's experiment with democracy,…"

"I believe you can consider yourself in the clear if you believe you're about to be lumped in with conspiracy nutters.  It's not a conspiracy, it's an orchestrated propaganda campaign."

"I don't know if you've read Chris Hedges' "American Fascists: The Christian Right and the War on America"? I have to be honest and say I couldn't finish it - the anger and sense of helplessness was overwhelming. I have…"

"Thanks for that article. You got me interested in discovering similarities between Dominionism and Wahhabism, which can obviously threaten secularism."

Mary replied to Unseen's discussion 'Dr. Ben Carson's religion IS fair game. In fact, it needs to be discussed!'
"That's a fair point and, honestly, I hadn't considered that. That being said, he's still not getting within 100 yards of my head . . ."

"The problem is that human nature is wired for a certain amount of woo. We carry or wear a "lucky" object when we play a game, because we had it/wore it the last time we won. Confirmation bias is one of the many biases we seem to be…"

"But, of course, creating adversaries is the best way of uniting people; that a Cult 101 course. You need enemies threatening the very foundations of your way of life, so that you can band together against them. And you need them to scare the troops…"

"Oh, Steve - I don't mean to be argumentative, but I distinctly remember a picture in my childhood bible that portrayed a fair-haired, prepubescent Jesus in the workshop with Joseph. They were working on a finely-finished piece of wood that…"

"Built by Joseph, no less. That does confuse me, though; I thought Joseph was a carpenter, not a stone-mason. Apparently, he was a man of many talents. The reason the pyramids are no longer hollow? My theory is that all that grain got wet during…"

"I couldn't agree with you more on the lack of suitability of either for the Oval Office. When they first started to talk about running, I was completely bewildered! I couldn't imagine how anyone could take either of them seriously, but I…"

"Not to get on my anti-cult hobby horse, but that's exactly how they work. They prey upon impoverished, isolated, vulnerable groups (not necessarily minority, since it doesn't matter who contributes the money, time and free work), with…"

"Sorry, Jim - I missed your request to talk. You are introducing several very rich topics here, but they really don't have anything to do with the subject of the thread. You're experiencing the frustrations that a lot of us have - the thing…"

"Judging someone based on their religious beliefs is a fine line. I have friends who are Xian, Jew, Buddhist, what have you, and they are fine people. On the other hand, I have no friends who are fundamentalists, because I find them obnoxious - their…"
