I'm sure you started hearing banjo music at mid-verse. Did you do some snake dancing with the locals?

Funny but with more recent events you should have went with:

"The sun will appear to turn black for a few minutes today. Please refrain from shooting at it."

Please make a note for future reference.
Sure, I've been called a xenophobe, but the truth is, I'm not. I honestly just feel that America is the best country and the other countries aren't as good. That used to be called patriotism.

While he constructs some sort of tortured whimsical rejoinder, some points to consider:

This week a group called the Coalition for Biblical Manhood and Womanhood – no, really, they call themselves that – created a small stir by issuing the “Nashville Statement.” The statement and the lack of attention it’s receiving reveal the degree to which the old religious right has lost its capacity to influence public conversations.

In substance, the Nashville Statement rehearses the familiar tropes of Christian right sexual morality. People should restrict sexual intercourse for marriage, and legitimate marriage requires the union of one man with one woman. Gay sex, queer sex, and transgender identity are sinful. The statement does not address the Coalition’s belief that women should be subordinate to men at home and in the church, and it acknowledges both homosexual orientation and gender ambiguity. Basically, however, the Nashville Statement adds nothing new to the conversation apart from a fairly hip web design.

Moreover, the statement’s “initial signatories” are the same, worn-out cast of characters. James Dodson and Wayne Grudem? Check. Tony Perkins and Al Mohler? Uh-huh. It’s the same people saying basically the same things they’ve always said.

So why draft a big statement, and why publicize it? The answer is simple. Pretty much nobody cares what these people think anymore. The day is past when the media seeks out right wing preachers to weigh in on social values. Their public audience shrinking, their public presence waning, and their credibility shot to hell, the Christian right needs attention.

The age of Trump has not been good for the Christian right and its representatives. The Trump administration continually generates storms of controversy, dominating the airwaves and eliminating opportunities for media interviews about church controversies and sexual politics. Christian Right talking heads find themselves in a media environment that no longer needs them. To a significant degree the Nashville Statement amounts to a media strategy, an attempt to gin up controversy and garnish interviews.

The Trump era has also diminished fundamentalists’ moral authority. This is especially true of the white men who dominate evangelical politics, the ones usually invited to pop up on CNN or the Today Show. Over 80 percent of white evangelicals voted for Donald Trump. They somehow overlooked Trump’s basic ignorance of Christian theology and piety, his sordid history of demeaning and assaulting women, and his documented track record as an accomplished liar. No longer can the Christian right claim the moral high ground. Folks just aren’t buying their act.

If no one cares what they think then why is everybody in the press making a big stink about it?

Let people believe what they want to believe. I think that's a right or something...

Just as they overlooked Mitt Romney's being Mormon, which they had been preaching for all time is not part of Christianity.

They can believe what they want. What they can't do is have laws passed that protect some folks but not others. That's how tyranny starts not to mention that we have a Constitutional amendment that prohibits it. They also don't get to censor others who speak an opinion that disagrees with them and then use that to make themselves into the victims.

Yet another opportunity for the prius driving knob gobblers to prove how really smart they are....yes, go see Hillary explain the landslide again while contributing to her we're broke fund.


Hillary Clinton will be back in the spotlight this fall for an unprecedented, big-ticket book tour for her new tome What Happened, with tickets priced as high as $1,200.

On Monday, the ex-Democratic nominee announced 'Hillary Clinton Live,' a 15-city tour, which includes stops in a handful of states she lost in the election last year.

Promotional materials for her first stop, at the Warner Theatre in Washington, D.C., promises Clinton plans to 'let loose' and tell her audience a 'personal, raw, detailed and surprisingly funny story' of her election loss and recovery.
