“People of Praise are quite controversial within Catholicism. Founded in 1971, the group incorporates elements of fundamentalist Pentecostal Protestantism (such as speaking in tongues) and is considered a cult in mainstream Catholicism. Its practices include requiring members to swear an oath of loyalty to the group… Read more
as problematic as people find Kim, I did respect her patience and kindness with Kanye on the show when he was in an obvious manic episode.
Trump keeps wanting to smush the church and state (while personally following neither) together to make a republic he thinks his voters (white, older, religious) want. But that is not the majority any longer.
Every day, our demographic changes. All those boomers, raised on Bozo the Clown, Howdy Duty and duck n cover… Read more
Exactly. The Republicans over the last ten years have made a mockery of almost every “norm.” They shouldn’t be allowed to claim them now as a defense.
Seriously fuck this sad attempt at moralizing. No politician gets a fucking dying wish. IF this is the jugular, I pity the future of this party.
I don’t really get the “dying wish” thing because... that’s just not how the system works. Justices don’t get to make requests in their dying wishes, nor do I particularly want them to. (Definitely not interested in seeing what Kavanaugh’s dying wish is.)
I just want to point out clear evidence in the picture above that Mitch, like Palpatine, cannot keep his evil from slowly bleeding through and eroding his entire face. Ten years ago he looked like a deceptively innocuous turtle; now he looks like a fucking Streganona-type folktale that comes out of the woods to eat… Read more
They could light themselves on fire on the capital steps and still not stop a conservative justice replacing RBG if the GOP has the votes. This isn’t the movies where there is a solution to every problem hidden somewhere in the rule book. The only thing they can do is try to shame their Republican colleagues into… Read more
I “spoke” with an evangelical a few years ago to try and understand how she could support Trump in spite of ALL the enormous red flags surrounding him. She basically said he was pro-choice and that was it (not acknowledging that he was definitely pro-choice earlier, probably because he told so many models to get… Read more
Okay but what he said didn’t feel like a criticism. It seemed like he said it absentmindedly, registered the fact he said it out loud, and then pivoted to the “that’s what trump calls you” angle. And she knows it! There was absolutely zero reason to bring it up in this interview anyhow.
It’s like Dems are stuck in this loop of planning around how people *should* vote, despite years of evidence that they don't vote that way, but are also like "Well, if you can't just see that you should vote for us, we certainly won't do anything else to get your vote."
I think the article lays it out pretty well. In spite of evidence that young voters are policy-driven, they go with "Democrat Avengers" marketing.
