I was listening to the radio as I went out to do some early morning shopping. There was a lady on who was an English professor at Liberty University. That’s the university founded by Jerry Falwell. It’s what they called an evangelical faith-based university.
The woman said that they (the evangelicals) would get Bret Kavenaugh confirmed because they believed he’d be for the sanctity of life, all life, and that he’d vote to overturn Roe v Wade.
When asked about Trump’s behavior, his paying off women he had affairs with, she said they had to overlook the little things and concentrate on the bigger things like the kids being separated from their parents at the border.
I am sick and tired of this kind of talk. Let’s stop letting these folks get away with this nonsense.
I suggest we call faith based what it really is fairy tale based.
The sanctity of life and the unborn is in fact a proposition that will kill women. So let’s call it something clever like, “We’re for letting women die.”
As to overlooking Trump’s behavior (Oh and she said she didn’t like Hillary’s misogyny. Was she confusing Bill’s behavior and overlaying it on Hillary? I don’t know.) Why? Why when you are being so hard on Hillary? Give me a break.
Then there was the speech writer for the White House that had to resign. Why? Oh he attended a racist meeting where White Nationalist speak and hang out. Seems he’s a racist and White Nationalist. There’s an explanation for that. It was not one that I arrived at but that a commentator made on this subject. Once I heard her explanation it became clear to me why this happened. The current White House is a racist White Nationalist organization. So of course you’ll find racists and White Nationalists if you scratch the surface. Okay, that’s explained.
Nikki Haley, our U.N. ambassador, has said that we, the United States of America, will no longer give aid to Palestinian refugees. We’ve been doing it since 1948 when their lands were taken from them, and now we aren’t going to help anymore. Why? Some of their leaders have said bad things about the U.S. So the best thing to do apparently is to let these people starve.
Trump gave some sort of Labor Day speech. And this is surprising, it sounded to many that he’s no friend of labor!
A bishop grabbed Ariana Grande’s ass at Aretha Franklin’s funeral and others are pissed that Bill Clinton was seated near Lewis Farrakhan at the event.
John McCain was laid to rest.
Trump, NAFTA, Canada – it seems what the Donald will do will cause prices to go up for Americans. Good work Donald. There’s no point in going into the details because the details keep changing, but no matter what I’ve heard the outcome is the same. We’ll piss off Canada, and stuff will cost more.
Oh that’s right Donald doesn’t understand tariffs. He thinks the country being tariffed pays more. In reality, ( damn, nasty word – reality ) you the consumer pay more. Oh well.
And to finish up, that woman at Liberty University said that the Evangelicals had to fight off the progressives and the liberals. What?
And in other faith based news – measles are on the rise. A disease that was all but wiped out in this country is on the rise because some people “don’t believe” in vaccinations. It’s not a question of belief. It’s a question of fact, of science, of reality (oh there’s that word again.)
