Really great article about some people doing good work in tough circumstances, thanks Hamilton. I’ve worked with Diné people and enjoyed hiking and camping in the Navajo Nation, and hold both the people and the place in high regard. You inspired me to make a small donation to support their work and I hope others…
The evangelical right has had “SUCKER” tattooed on their foreheads for as long as I can remember. The pastors of megachurches don’t fly around in private jets or live in mansions or wear Rolex’s because the love of Christ alone is financially lucrative. They do these things because their congregants are willing to…
Tony Perkins and the Grahams and these larger-than-life personalities are all schmoozers too. Their God is an angry God of hatred, punishment, and selective favor, not compassion. Links up well with Trump’s militaristic play-acting and hate-mongering.
It’s funny, because most Evangelicals I’ve ever met know nothing about Biblical history, the very conscious and deliberate construction process, ecumenical councils throughout time (and their effects), the apocryphal texts, etc.
Evangelicals are so bizarrely fascinating to me. I was raised pretty religious, but it was all peace-and-love, God-loves-you, hippie Jesus stuff. How do two groups read the same book and come to such wildly opposite conclusions?
I grew up Evangelical. You need to be a complete moron to buy into this idiot faith. That every single word in a book full of dead dudes coming back to life, lepers being healed, blind people be given their sight and a slew of other patent impossibilities are FACTS. (Forget the whole 6,000 year old Earth). To accept…
Came here to post this. Not disappointed you beat me to it.
Evangelical and sucker just seams redundant. As would would Evangelical and stupid, fucking willfully stupid to protect my backwards morality, drain on society, obstacle to progress, and awful human being. Again- not trying to display a negative attitude.
I’m sorry, but I just can’t believe that a group of people that believes in biblical infallibility could be so easily misled.
Political Evangelicalism is a disease. I don’t understand how adherents legitimately can follow through with these people after reading things like this: it’s a group of powerful white men who have wealth in numbers that is needless, plotting how they’re helping the “little people” in a limousine, all the while fully…
Considering that the evangelicals passionately believe in a magic deity in the sky who controls everything but we can’t see, hear, or detect in any tangible way whatsoever, who created the entire universe in six days, and who made a son in a virgin’s womb that came back to life after being dead for three days. I’m…
Presidents who have moral failings must be embraced by Christians.
Mr. Trump told him that he was writing it a six-figure check, which Mr. Graham told him to send to Mr. Perkins’s church. Both men were moved by his impulsive kindness, and a bond was formed.
New York City is trash, too.
The downtown riverfront area of Wilmington, NC, is delightful.
Saint Augustine is lovely but probably too small for your taste.
I don’t know much about New York City, but doesn’t the above description of Miami basically apply to NYC as well?
Just think though, in a few years the oceans will rise and there will be all new beach cities. You should be figuring out which cities will become beach cities in the future and which of those will be the best.
The NYC bid is so phenomenally, unbelievably stupid that it enrages me just to think about it.
Hey, you never know. The Red States have already demonstrated a willingness to fuck over the coastal blue states. It would be kind of great if their jealousy at largely being ignored by Amazon were to fuel the passage of that kind of law.
