(RNS) Right-wing zealots aren't people of honor. They are mean-spirited thugs. Their scorched-earth campaign isn't about a theory of government but rather contempt and nihilism.

    • My gosh I just saw that this guy consults with churches? About hat? How to show bias and hatred?

      Please let us know which churches you have worked with so we know which churches to avoid.

  1. Deacon John M. Bresnahan

    WOW! I haven’t seen such a hate-filled screed in a long time. I didn’t realize how totally evil our conservative brothers and sisters are.
    Maybe this writer should learn how to make his points without designating those who disagree with him as some sort of satans.

    • Rev. Brescahan, I don’t see the hate or a suggestion that if you disagree you must be a tool of Satan. The facts speak for themselves. Unfortunately, too many of us have been soft-peddling the truth so as not to hurt someone’s feelings. One thing I question: that they have declared war on America. That would require telling us what they intended to do before they did it. In fact, when given a chance they simply did these things, made war on the American Dream and many million Americans.

  2. I can see the truthfulness of this blog, but the blog seems a little biased towards views that conservatives may not even have. Politicians on both sides are influenced by special interest groups and they have to conform to these views for fear of losing support…

  3. Thank you! It is way past time for our religious and political leaders to be calling the theo-political right out on their violations of both religious/spiritual principles and American values. Please do this more often and louder.

  4. The political Christian be he right wing of left wing is still political and politics belong this world. What does a Christian and the world have in common….?
    For all our faults (we Christians who have political opinions) we need to express love as well.
    I think I am a right winger, not far-right and I am not a rich, racist, homophobic cigar smoking fat guy or any other stereo-type you could throw in. I am so because I am not left wing and I am not left wing because the left (nearly everyone I know) are idealistic without a foundation!
    Everything is moving to the Day of Judgement. Left or right, right or wrong!
