Tea Party Religious Trist with Sharia ?

Published July 5, 2014 by debrabellink

A time of lamentation has brought me to blog these thoughts.  I feel that for my own emotional as well as mental health it would be healthy for me to vomit this out to the blogosphere, and get it out of my being.

I find the religious goings on in the Evangelical Right Wing Republican party to be nothing less than a beginning to the ripping apart of the fabric of what the United States represents and has represented since it’s founding.  There were reasons why our founding fathers separated religion from government and gave us freedom FROM other religions whose believers might want to hijack the wall between religion and personal private lives of those who might not practice or believe in that particular religion, or that particular god.

In my life, which has not been a short one, I do not remember a division among Americans as there is right now. the division cuts in multiple ways ; class, race, political party, religion, rich, poor, young and old.  

I believe it is a fact, and of course these are my own beliefs and opinions, that there can be no compromise with those on the right.  they seem to be stiff necked, stubborn, and quite frankly hateful and uncaring, particularly uncaring of their fellow Americans who might not have the same advantages as they do.    all the United States has to offer has become a money grab…  college, food, roads, school, nutritional school lunches are even under fire.     what has become of the fact that we used to look out for the other American backs…   we used to look out for each other.   Now , even when a natural disaster befalls a state, which happens to be a ‘blue’ state, the reds don’t want to give disaster help.   what is happening to us… are we red against blue?

It behooves me greatly to see the hyper-religiosity on the right.  and it does feel a bit uncomfortable as I read news pieces where judges on state supreme courts want to turn America into a theocracy.  wouldn’t that be just as though we have invited the Arabs here to show us their Sharia law?    that is what a theocracy is.

our ancestors came to this country to have the right to worship in freedom and peace.  what will we tell them and how can we honor them if we turn this country into a theocratic fascist state?   

You who do these things should be embarrassed, and hang your heads in shame for the men and women who have fought battles all over the world, those who have died, spilled blood so we could all have the America they knew they were fighting for. 

why bother the fight, especially now in the middle east against ISIS….  you on the right seem to be in cahoots with them…  it is the same.  theocracy…a Christian united states and ISIS Islamic  caliph. sharia?   and the right wing…  God, I never thought I would see this day, and I have to say….. I am glad I am not young anymore.  My concern now is for my children and grandchildren.

 

thank you for taking the time to read.

BoB Jones Get A Grip

A woman is always a target for those who do not understand the female sexual being.  It is hard to believe that anyone in this day and age, except of course if one is susceptible  to sharia law, to understand how anyone can be so undeniably stupid as to think a woman who is raped was ‘asking for it”,  or even worse, has committed a sin which brought this horror upon herself.  Sounds insane doesn’t it.  Well that is exactly what the Jones church has said to a girl who was raped just the other day.  She was told to pray, for if this happened to her than there must have been some sin that she herself committed to have been raped…

So, then it stands to reason that the rapist is forgiven, but his victim is praying and is forever reminded of some terrible sin that she committed to have gotten herself raped….. what in the world, the sin world, could be so bad as to call upon oneself such an act of defilement to a young woman??

 

 

Religious beliefs are scooping at the bottom of the Cliffs of Freedom

In this country, abortion still is safe and legal. However, to look into the columns of newspapers, or to listen to news from television outlets, one would think abortion was not yet legal, but being debated.
the truth is abortion is being debated, and it is legal, so the question remains, why debate something which is already a law.
backwards. that is the word. the perfect word for the teapublicans. I don’t know that there is a republican party anymore. it has morphed into something which has no feelings, no hearts. almost like a sy fi flick, you know the ones, where the aliens take over the town, the cops, and I quess the politicians.
number one on todays blotter is Virginia Gov, Mcdonell, or gov. ultra sound. He is a monsterous display of hypocritical decadence. the gov also loves women. oh yes, he loves women so much he wants us all to be treated with the utmost indignity. no, that’s not a mistake. the word is indignity, if there be a worse word then fill it right in its place.
New health regulations are forcing the closure of many women’s clinics. the closures are due to having the wrong spaces in parking lots as well as bad hallways inside the clinics., now what these no nos have to do with women’s health care is way over my head, and i’m sure it goes way over yours as well.. ya think? the health commissioner Cynthia c. romero resigned, because, she said, ” of the extreme health care law faux pas” the state health board was apparently bullied into passing the health laws.
back to righteous Cynthia, she is now renting the gov’s house, probably very comfortably one would think. so, job or no job cyn is sitting pretty.

Mr mcdonell please, before the egg on your face gets so thick you’ll need a chisel to get it off, resign my friend, resign.

Religion in American Politcs

Published June 11, 2013 by debrabellink

Religion in American politics and hawkishness by the religious right has been underestimated. these become very important during economic downturns  causing a low boiling panic. Ignorance is definitely not bliss.

The American south was heavily steeped in covenanted relationships with God. when the yankee troops left from the south, God was heralded to have kept his attachment to the south  who felt they had kept the covenant.  the south’s white conservative politicians were then named ‘redeemers.’

the north was able to boast victory and one hundred years later a religious and political transformation transported the south to an influential place in the nation as a whole.l

Is the south a nation within? they seem to think so, and are happy with that. very happy.

William Faulkner said, “the past is never dead. it’s not even past.’ and so it goes for the white conservative south.
