With a new administration in Washington it will be a challenge to get the 'liberals' to hold Biden-Harris to the few 'progressive promises' they made during their campaign. Biden is bringing back many of Bush & Obama's neo-cons to head his foreign policy. I'll be on this case without hesitation.

WHAT RELIGION?



Want to see why I am not big on traditional religion? Any of them. This disgusting scene in Bethlehem was best described by activist David Swanson when he said, "Christian Priests Mark Jesus' Birth at His Birthplace by Beating the S--- Out of Each Other."

Yeah these paragons of virtue, justice, non-violence and piety are some of the leading causes of global conflict.

Alot of people like to say what Jesus would do it he came back today. (I guess that is the price of fame.) I think that if Jesus came back today he likely throw most Christians out of their many expensive temples before he headed down to Wall Street to toss some tables aside.

Scripture time:

“I tell you the truth, it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.”
Matthew 19:23-24

"And Jesus entered the temple and drove out all who sold and bought in the temple, and he overturned the tables of the money-changers and the seats of those who sold pigeons."
Matthew 21:12

"But I tell you who hear me: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. If someone strikes you on one cheek, turn to him the other also. If someone takes your cloak, do not stop him from taking your tunic. Give to everyone who asks you, and if anyone takes what belongs to you, do not demand it back. Do to others as you would have them do to you."
Luke 6:27-36
