From Mother Jones, a theory here:
Christianity is inherently anti-environmental. He pointed out that many pre-Christian religions worshipped the natural world, and Christianity defined itself partially in opposition to that worldview. Writing in 1967 in Science, White argued, “Christianity is the most anthropocentric religion the world has seen. … By destroying pagan animism, Christianity made it possible to exploit nature in a mood of indifference to the feelings of natural objects.”
Hence we have one Scott Pruitt, a foul human but supposedly a good Christian. Pruitt’s actions, as the article points out, put humans over the planet and this theory explains why.
It should be pointed out that this makes no sense, as the title of the post says. You can’t have religion or anything human if the environment is degraded and destroying the humans that inhabit it.
I don’t care what religion you are, this is just a fact. If people are destroyed by pollution and dangerous chemicals, and there’s no clean water to drink, that’s it, we’re done and Jesus ain’t gonna be much help.
From Naked Capitalism here:
When oil, money, and a huge international alliance all line up with the people starving out a troublesome minority, you can expect a complete media blackout on news about those who are dying.
And you’re living through one of those guilty silences right now. Very few journalists have shown any interest in reporting the suffering imposed by the blockade.
Where is the oh so progressive New York Times?
And where are the humanists in the Democratic Party? Ha!
If these were white people being starved to death in Yemen well then maybe you would see some awareness or news.
From CBS News here:
Mr. Trump told reporters upon his departure from the summit for Singapore on Saturday that President Obama had “allowed Russia to take Crimea.” Rice called that notion “outrageous.”
“The U.S. has long upheld international law. This was the most brazen violation of another country’s sovereignty that’s occurred in recent years,” she said.
“For the president of the United States to blame his predecessor rather than to understand Russia is our adversary, Russia has taken on behavior that’s absolutely reprehensible, including being responsible for shooting a civilian aircraft out of the skies and killing hundreds of people,” Rice said.
I’ve been posting more than a bit about what I see to be the near delusion of many Democratic politicians. Calling Obamacare free health care for example, what the fuck?
Here we have one of Obama’s senior advisors talking about American respect for the sovereignty of other countries?
From a woman who worked President Obama who was responsible for thousands of civilian deaths with his flying death robot program. How does this work?
You can’t say shooting a civilian aircraft out of the skies reprehensible and then get a free pass on melting people in cars with automated missile drones, can you?
Not often talked about is the utter horseshit and fake news of the Democratic Party. It doesn’t excuse anything President FuckNut is doing by any means but let’s have a common standard, shall we?
From the Guardian here:
The Fox & Friends host Abby Huntsman apologised to viewers on Sunday, after referring to Donald Trump’s summit with Kim Jong-un of North Korea in Singapore as “that meeting between the two dictators”.
Once again proving my point that ill bitches know they’re ill bitches, they’re just keeping quiet about it.
So all these Fox humps know President ShitStain is a dictator, but they pretend that he isn’t, which is what lackeys and fuckwits do.
But at least they’re aware so it’s not a question of intelligence, it’s a case of what an ethicist might call value system disorder.
Headline from BBC:
Trump: Samantha Bee should be fired for Ivanka insult
You reap what you sow, Trump, you foul fucking piece of hypocritical shit.
You start down the road of insults and bullshit and then cry wolf when somebody puts it on your own daughter, who is a clueless piece of shit pretending to be some sort of moderating, conscious individual.
From the New York Times:
Mr. Trump’s practice of blocking users who criticize him violates the First Amendment, a federal judge said.
I can’t believe the Deep State has fucked Trump again.
Trump is cockblocking on the Twatter for national security reasons — there could Mexicans and black folks getting up in his grill and that keeps him from focusing on the wall and fucking with Rocket Man.
President has serious shit he has to contend with, most of it in his head, and blocking on the Twatter helps him to focus and unleash even greater fury on the Twatter when he’s rage tweeting on the can in the morning.
It also helps him clear his bowels when he’s more relaxed.
From the Guardian here:
Donald Trump escalated an increasingly cutthroat fight with the justice department on Friday, with a series of tweets accusing federal agents of infiltrating his 2016 presidential campaign “for political purposes” and to “frame” him for crimes he “didn’t commit”.
The president was echoed on television by the former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, his lawyer, who said Trump’s accusations “may turn out to be closer to the truth than people thought”.
For the biggest proponent of fighting fake news to be issuing it out his own ass at the same time he’s denouncing it, oy God fucking help us.
The idea that you can just tweet/twat these ideas out there with no proof of anything while you take a shit in the morning is fucked up.
We all know the FBI infiltrated the Black Panthers but for Trump to tweet some sort of analogous situation has less than 1% chance of being true.
