Christian nationalism attempts to sanctify oppression and not liberation. It attempts to sanctify lies and not truth. At best it's a form of theological malpractice. At worst, it's a form of heresy. - Rev. William J. Barber II
A Florida-based federal judge has ordered nearly $1 million in sanctions against Donald Trump and his attorney Alina Habba, calling the former president a "mastermind of strategic abuse of the judicial process." read more
Gaia Vince: Yeah. I mean, it's nothing short of an absolute tragedy that people are going to have to move. But let's be clear. Migration this century is inevitable. This is my way of staring head-on what we are facing, which is degrees Celsius hotter. These are deadly temperatures. So what I'm saying is we have mass migration. Let's manage it. read more
Thom Hartmann: If working people were a bit more desperate about their economic situations, some conservative thinkers & the uber wealthy believe, they'd be less likely to organize, protest, or even vote
A Leon County Circuit Court judge on Friday refused to dismiss a lawsuit against Ron DeSantis brought by a North Miami Beach state senator who has accused Florida's governor of illegally using taxpayer funds to fly migrants from Texas to Martha's Vineyard in Massachusetts last September. read more
Jesus said the Gospel is about good news to the poor, healing to the brokenhearted, welcoming all people, caring for the least of these: the immigrant, the hungry, the sick, the imprisoned.
Christian nationalism attempts to sanctify oppression and not liberation.

Ah... argument-free declarative statements.
Must be wearing a red hat and kowtowing towards Mar a Lardo.
I heard that The Laptop ran a burro ----- website from the basement of Hillary's Pizza Parlor, which has Jewish lasers on the roof... or something like that!
One. More. Time. It's not about NATO
And just so this thread isn't another waste of time and space where Moneywar would rather talk about Iraq than Ukraine, as if that mattered, and be blind to the civilian bombings in Ukraine now today, and not in Moscow.....
When you can't directly retort points made on this situation, but continuously fall back on comparing this situation to some other situation... that's just Whataboutism.
Hypocrisy isn't the main point. The US has done a lot wrong, but doesn't let Vlad off the hook for what HE IS DOING NOW.
He could stop mass murdering children with a word, anytime.
The US had twice in the last century had to save Europe from becoming the launching point of military attacks, whether Germany or Russia or anyone else... from across the North Atlantic highway, er, sea.
NATO is there to make damn sure that isn't necessary yet again.
Besides which, you are just babbling now.... apparently to avoid the points addressed to you.
Vlad is the Bad Guy here, not NATO nor the US. They aren't Boy Scouts, but they haven't decided to commit slow genocide in public the way your hero Vlad has.
- like it's the world against them.
That's what happens when one sovereign nation invades another and starts murdering civilians en masse.
- strangle that the West intended to put on Russia
"But Officer, that person was threatening to strangle me.... I could see it in their eyes!
So I shot them in the back. And their children, too!"
You DO realize what a shill you've become for a crony capitalist oligarch dictator who is known for murdering civilians, and his political enemies, do you not?
Let's talk about Trump writing a check to Hillary Clinton for $170K....
this one is only a few mins, but it's all smiles, lol
Making voters afraid with horrific media narratives is Job One for Republicans.
People who are afraid don't vote, or they vote for the authoritarian figure who promises to "protect" them from boogeymen like immigrants, women, gays, and blacks.
Oh, and libs. "Owning" libs is their only strategery.
- Eve's curse
Rwingers are under the misconception that, if there is a God and if he/she has a Plan..... poor ol' weak God needs these mighty rwingers to carry out said Plan for him, because obviously he can't do it himself.
They need to go out and put bounties on pregnant woman and put into Civil Law THEIR opinions of what God OUGHT to do.
These people are loony-t00n characters who have not the first clue about spirituality... which pretty much tells them that temporal matters are not really their concern.
There's nothing in the NT that tells them they should be trying to make their particularly obnoxious take on what they think is spirituality into the Law of the Land.
There is every indication there that nationalism is antithetical to Christianity.
Paul refused to have anything to do with it, even as he noted, when if anyone had the right to be a nationalist it was he as a high priest.
CS Lewis had his demon master character say from hell of nationalists:
"We have a pretty cageful of them down here."
"In a blistering 46-page order, U.S. District Court Judge Donald Middlebrooks said Trump's sprawling lawsuit against Hillary Clinton and dozens of former Justice Department and FBI officials was an almost cartoonish abuse of the legal system.
"Here, we are confronted with a lawsuit that should never have been filed, which was completely frivolous, both factually and legally, and which was brought in bad faith for an improper purpose," Middlebrooks wrote.
"Mr. Trump is a prolific and sophisticated litigant who is repeatedly using the courts to seek revenge on political adversaries. He is the mastermind of strategic abuse of the judicial process, and he cannot be seen as a litigant blindly following the advice of a lawyer."
