Right wing US xians aim to overthrow secular governmentUnfortunately, that amusing comic is quite mistaken. A prototypical alien speaks for many millions of xians and moslems worldwide, including about 20-25% of the US voting age population. Just search on the term, dominionism. Today's aryan thugs meld seamlessly with their "brothers" in far-right xian strongholds -- an archipelago of xian hatred which I call Ameristan, concentrated but not limited to the US midwest and south.Mein Kampf (My Struggle 1923) and today’s racist, antisemitic, homophobic dogma trouble not one true-believing fundamentalist. As Hitler makes clear in his jailhouse rant -- he was in prison for a ridiculous, failed attempt to rally german far-right thugs to his call for revolution, the Munich Beer Hall Putsch -- jews must be exterminated because that is a core xian (roman catholic) desideratum.
Hitler admired the RC church immensely as a model of an institution which could wield great secular power for almost two thousand years. The RC church never put Mein Kampf on its list of books the faithful were enjoined not to read.
Hitler was no atheist. He was instead a totally faithful son of the church whose so-called gospels blamed the jews for killing an alleged son of god.Eighty years ago, Europe was more than halfway towards new worldwide slaughter brought about by authoritarian state capitalism -- in a place known as the “Weimar Republic.” With funding by international german industries, the complicity of more moderate right wing parties, and the support of the military, the german national socialist workers party -- aka the nazi party -- slipped Hitler into the chancellorship (1933) without the nazis ever having gained a majority of seats in parliament.As soon as Hitler assumed authority, the party immediately began to roundup and exterminate communists, socialists, jewish intellectuals in the universities, the mentally ill, those born with disfiguring physical defects, and (lest we forget) atheists.Take a good look at membership of the US Congress, membership of the Supreme Court, the millions of dollars flowing without any impediment from right-wing industrialists to their political lackeys, the upper reaches of the Air Force who are truly xian airmen . . . and tell me that it couldn’t happen here. Don’t bet your life on it … atheists.the anti_supernaturalist
It is in all honesty the best variation of the point about religious respect I seem repeatedly and completely unable to get across myself to apologetics.
I disagree rcgami...the cherry pickers are apt to modify their beliefs as over time the social mores change...they do so kicking and screaming, but they eventually do change. The fundies on the other hand just continue kicking, screaming, and occasionally blowing things up. The former are therefore inconsistent in their beliefs.
That being said, I can't respect either.
