Heaven Forefend the Pope Is Sane! The pope just told the American Catholic religious right to shove off. He said that the political game they've been playing on behalf of people like the Koch brothers and Tea Party -- in the name of morality -- threatens, the moral structure of the Church.

She was the author of many books on family life and spirituality and co-founder with my father Francis Schaeffer of the evangelical ministry of L'Abri Fellowship in Switzerland. She has just gone to be with the Lord, as she would put it. She died at home which was her wish.

Fundamentalist Religion Will Destroy The World The countries in the world that are the most fundamentalist and religious, and/or those whose identity is most religion-based, are the world's greatest troublemakers.

With God on Our Side -- Christian Zionism Exposed It's hard to imagine we have come to this, but as much as a third of voting Americans is a bunch of delusional hate freaks in the Republican "base" known as Christian Zionists.

McCrystal Scandal Shows Us the Military No Longer Protects America -- It Guards Empire Increasingly, those most influential in making, supporting, or protesting defense policy have no direct experience with the military and no direct stake in getting it right.

Christian Conservatives Target Seated Judges This latest round of an attack on our judiciary is just another shot fired in our culture war. If we want an American version of Iran: here's the "blueprint"-- just let the folks at "Better Courts Now," impost their "values."

Judging By Her Own Theology Sarah Palin Is Disobeying the Bible Sarah Palin is a self-proclaimed, far-right conservative, Christian fundamentalist, which connotes a literal interpretation of the Bible. She cherry-picks to make her message more palatable to the public and ducks the subservient role of women her church believes in.
