Your choice.
" religion is the opiate for the masses "

Not my drug of choice.

Because its fundamentalism.

This is where all the other stuff starts.

This is where people believe they have a divine right to what they want.

This is just a few short steps away from 'god commands you'

It has no place in politics.

How so ?
Come on..you are a science denier aren't you ?
I have yet to see scientists take up arms for their " cause "
Show me examples



If anyone is a science denier, then that´s their personal choice - that´s what´s called Freedom of Expression - and I´ll defend anyone that has an religion regardless if it´s aligned with my own belief system or not.

The Dominonists who wormed their way into our government, SCOTUS and otherwise, via a Trojan horse named Trump might be even worse than the Taliban as they are more stealthy and have the advantage of being able to fool so many as they are "Christians" in a majority Christian nation.

Not that I don´t believe in science, but for many science has become a fundamentalist religion of its own.

Science is based on observable data and as such is open to challenge from within religion not so much.

My statement is less about science and more about its fundamentalist followers.

The Taliban were trained and armed, paid by the U.S to fight the Soviets. So in a way they are American.

Give it up.

On November 7th in the year 2020.

There's no real decernable difference between science or religion.

And if you need a real life example of the diefication of science see climate change.
Moral indignation to save it's soul and the fantaticism to do it.

That's right I forgot.

People only have the right to kill unborn babies.

But they don't have the right to choose a religion.

It's.....the most unique and colorful prayer leading I've ever heard.


Was that an actual language she was speaking at around 0:55? If so it was unrecognizable to me. OTOH we Roman Catholics listen to our priests incanting verses in several thousand year old dead languages, so there's that.

That said, comparing an excitable and flamboyant prayer leader to the Taliban is way out of line. Until she or any of her followers start shooting little girls for attending school, I'm going to have call B.S. on your trolling.

Absolutely no reason to pillory people for their religious faith, unless they are inciting actual, literal violence or attempting to control the lives of people not bound by their faith. You hear practicing Christians and Jews describe the derision and sometimes hatred they endure now from anti-religious zealots, and for the most part over the years I haven't seen that, but I have to say it does seem to be ramping up lately.

Not /entirely/ true, at least in Catholicism. There are precepts and rules that do change over time, sometimes over a looong time, but this is the result of dialog between practitioners and the clergy, and through new perspectives as new clergy enter the scene.

For example, the Catholic church's policy on burial practice has traditionalty been that followers MAY NOT cremate their remains. This stance has now been softened, and it is permissible now for practitioners to be cremated.

Seriously neo, pay attention to the posts.
I made one initial sweeping statement regarding extremist evangelicals in general.
Obviously my opinion, and one I have a right to , is that there is little difference to me ( to me ! ) in this kind of speaking in tongues religious hysteria and the examples we see of other religious brands radicalisation and brainwashing techniques that send out their stoked up minions into the world to cause terror.
It is all the same....In MY opinion.

So just get off my back.

I am sure she is lovely god fearing woman .....who just happens to endorse a racist, misogynistic, fascist game show host EX president.
