This post is adapted from one I wrote last year, Purge 70% of US House of Representatives Incumbents Just Like They Did In 1816, one in a 40-part series regarding a secret cult, bankrolled by anti-government special interests, that operates hidden in plain site, controlling every branch of our government. This is NOT The Onion. As far-fetched as this 70-year siege sounds it also presents the key to rid us of the worst of the worst in the GOP, disgrace and repudiate Koch, et al, and rescue our democracy from the jaws of christian sharia. Background The name of this cult is Read More›
This summer for me began when I decided to turn up the heat up with the goal to #VoteOutTheReligiousRight (complete index here). Though the number of evangelicals has been declining, the influence of the religious right, personified by so many of our politicians past and present, is consuming our government like a flesh-eating disease. As we passively allow church-state separation to crumble, all of us are complicit in bringing about christian sharia in the USA. In order to disqualify the religious right from public service we have to understand Read More›
"[G]ay rights issue has reached an unprecedented 'level of intensity' and put the country on the brink of conflict . . . Talk about a Civil War, we could have another one over this.
. . . If the Supreme Court strikes down the state bans and states across the country fail to convene “a state constitutional convention to re-examine the Constitution . . . we’re going to see a general collapse in the next decade or two.”Part 1, yesterday, I posed the question, ... Read More›
"For some people the future of their faith and of the nation are in danger, threatened by secular forces controlled by Satan himself." -- Christian right's rage problem -- How white fundamentalists are roiling America (Salon.com)When I talk to my friend, Michael Rogers, about how the religious right is guided by a political-religious dominionist philosophy demanding the end of our rule of law in favor of (their version of) god's law, he warns me that they won't stop until they force either (or both) a constitutional convention or civil war, reminding me that ...

Members of the public may send information that raises questions about an exempt organization's compliance with the Internal Revenue Code. (Charities-&-Non-Profits/Political-Organizations/Exemption-Requirements-Political-Organizations)In our efforts to #DrawTheLine between church and state in the conduct of our government and to #VoteOutTheReligiousRight, we have at our disposal a legal way to take some of the wind out of their (financial) sails. This is one of the strategies we developed while meeting with like-minded activists at the recent Netroots Nation and LGBT Netroots Connect. Imagine a nationwide action of non-violent civil disobedience that ... Read More›
You don't need a degree in psychology to dissect the blatant immaturity of the political religious right. If we can separate for a moment the social damage they do, we can see, much like a parent would see, that their insufferability is a child's call for help. As a group, they remind me of the first time Dan Massey and I left our then 2-year old son with friends of ours who had come over for some reciprocal date night babysitting. The minute we returned, our little boy went to several different electrical outlets, just pointing, as if to say, ...Read More›
#VoteOutTheReligiousRight Will you help #VoteOutTheReligious Right? As we fight for human rights, environment, and safe immigration, we have at hand a way to remove a large body of the political opposition. The underlying religious cults and alliances of the political religious right are, or should be, crystal clear most people by now. Their adherents no longer say or do anything to hide it, frequently demonstrating that their religious alliances supersede, actually nullify, all of the oaths of office they made upon entering public life. As Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia recently reminded us, “I think the main fight is to dissuade Americans from what ... Read More›
"I think the main fight is to dissuade Americans from what the secularists are trying to persuade them to be true: that the separation of church and state means that the government cannot favor religion over non religion." -- Supreme Court Justice Antonin ScaliaIt's hard to know where to begin to start in cataloging the elected officials and judges who by their own words and actions belie their true allegiance to something other than our Constitution -- an allegiance that supersedes any oaths of office they have taken. The seeds of their allegiance to a power greater than the Constitution ... Read More›
"At the 1990 National Prayer Breakfast, President George H.W. Bush praised [Family leader] Doug Coe for what he described as 'quiet diplomacy, I wouldn't say secret diplomacy.' Bush was apparently ignorant of one of the nation's oldest laws, the Logan Act which forbids private citizens to do just that lest foreign policy slip out of democratic control."
[The Family cult is . . . ] "Dismissed as 'civil religion' by observers who know it only by the National Prayer Breakfast's annual broadcast on C-Span, the Family's long-term project of a worldwide government under ...Read More›
[Following the Breakfast itself] some stay on for days of seminars organized around Christ's messages for particular industries . . . for executives in oil, defense, insurance, and banking. -- from The Family: The Secret Fundamentalism at the Heart of American Power (2009) by Jeff Sharlet (emphasis mine) Oh, the National Prayer Breakfast (NPB), are you ready for my exposé? Readers, did you know that the NPB is not a government sponsored event nor has it ever been in its 70+-year history? Did you know the rogue diplomacy practiced there has long been the bane of the U.S. Justice Department? And, although it ...Read More›
