    With atheism comes self-respect.

    This is an interesting article looking at the reasons many Evangelical Christians voted for Trump.

    If the next Supreme Court bans abortion it will backfire on white Evangelicals whose anti-women activists are already plotting to overturn basic Human Rights.

    Antisemitism is still a problem but I disagree with the solution proposed here.

    Have a great week everyone and Happy Canada Day!!

    The church says the earth is flat, but I know that it is round, for I have seen the shadow on the moon, and I have more faith in a shadow than in the church.

    I don’t agree with the 3rd “backfire” article…

    I think we greatly underestimate the power of the flyover states in our country.

    On the Fermi Paradox, my guess is that the great filter is still ahead of us..

    @Bellen, Canada does not consider refugees to be criminals. Asylum seeking is not even a misdemeanor there. If you are driving the Pacific Highway or near the Peace Arch you will not have to worry about your child being kidnapped by the RCMP or anyone else. They are respected around the world for how they treat refugees. There was a great article in an Irish paper today (sorry behind a pay wall).

    “The ethno-nationalists, evangelicals and conservatives who made a Faustian pact with US President Donald Trump so they could wrap themselves in the American flag to the exclusion of all others know that at some point there will be a reckoning”.

    “Because of a deliberate policy of slow walking their claims , I saw hundreds, possibly thousands of asylum seekers spend days inching their way along the pedestrian bridge (at Hidalgo) with no shelter from the heat or the rain”.

    And what choice do they have? Return to Honduras via the desert or risk having their children taken and put in cages?

    Thanks Reg for some great readings!

    I agree with @Bellen about flyover states.  They determined the Repub takeover of all branches of US government.  They are against abortion and the Supreme Court is what they most want.  And they will get it.

    Did you catch the recent Bill Maher show with Michael Moore on the elections?

    Bill Maher  said when fascism comes to America it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross.

    Robert I am getting more flashbacks to that disturbing Christian side hug “song“. Imagine if it became the law. Play it at your peril!! If someone else hears it I might be OK. I want my mammy.

    Are you suggesting I just cross the boarder and go for it? Hahahaha anyone down to meet me on the other side? I’m fleeing the holocaust I predicted would happen when that asshole took office. I fucking told everyone but no…

    And I don’t think Trump “won” NK he just got bamboozled. Am I the only one who is seeing how other leaders are taking advantage of Trump’s stupidity??? Seriously people
