political post

but short and sweet. ok not so sweet, but:

salon.com interviews a baptist pastor who says the country should be afraid of Palin's theological extremism.

because other people can research this stuff without having ptsd flashbacks. I may never write my own blog post about how dangerous I think Palin is, but for now it seems I'm not the only one with that opinion so I'm going to link when I find pertinent stories.

They have a collection of dangerous people.
Economist Krugman just said tonight that Phil Graham would be the best man for the job of creating another Great Depression.

ugh.

it isn't far off the mark to say that the Christian Right is literally out to destroy the world. the belief is that we are living in the end times anyway, and anything they can do to advance ecological, political or economic disaster, they will gladly latch onto as evidence that god is pouring his wrath out upon the Earth before the Tribulation and the Last Judgment.

the world does not need a self-fulfilling prophecy issuing from the US. one begins to wish that someone, somewhere, would shake us from our slumber. I'm not sure exactly how that would best be done, though.

You know, I just wish they'd have their rapture and let us get on with life on earth already.

well, I agree. I don't know many people who are that enthused about her, but most people I know don't seem to realize what she stands for. there's a complacency on the urban west coast when it comes to religion, since the extremists for the most part are very rare until you get out in the sticks. we need to wake up.
