Conservatives Without Conscience
by John Dean
Penguin Books, 2006, p194

Right-wing authoritarian followers are much more active than the rest of the country. They have the mentality of 'old-time religion' on a crusade, and they generously give money, time and effort to the cause. They proselytize; they lick stamps; they put pressure on loved ones; and they revel in being loyal to a cohesive group of like thinkers. And they are so submissive to their leaders that they will believe and do virtually anything they are told.

Is Christianity a form of mental illness? I say yes. Fortunately it's curable.

Christian conservatives ... want to control the right of women to have abortions; to ban all forms of gay marriage; to prevent the teaching of safe sex in schools; to encourage home schooling; to ban the use of contraceptives; to halt stem cell research with human embryos; to / stop the teaching of evolution and/or to start the teaching of intelligent design; to bring God into the public square and eliminate the separation of church and state; to overturn the legality of living wills; to control the sexual content of cable and network television, radio, and the Internet; and to eliminate an "activist" judiciary that limits or impinges on their agenda, by placing God-fearing judges on the bench who will promote their sincerely held beliefs

I don't actually know the string theory. But what was presented of it awhile back on here, I'm not so sure. I see a possibility :)

Conservatives Without Conscience
by John Dean
Penguin Books, 2006, p186

What Bush followers crave more than anything else is submission to a powerful authority as a means of alleviating their fears of ambiguity, certainty and complexity... the characteristic which defines the Bush movement, the glue which binds it together and enables and fuels all of the abuses, is the vicious, limitless methods used to attack and demonize the "Enemy," which encompasses anyone-foreign or domestic-threatening to their movement. What defines and motivates this movement are not any political ideas or strategic objectives, but instead, it is the bloodthirsty, ritualistic attacks on the Enemy du jour - the Terrorist, the Communist, the Illegal Immigrant, the Secularist, and most of all, the "Liberal...

Something my Dad told me.
On a sunny day in the middle of the night two dead boys got up to fight. Back to back they faced each other, pulled their swords and shot each other. A deaf policeman heard the noise, went and shot the two dead boys. If you don't believe this story is true, ask the blind man. He saw it too :)
Good one B/man... and I agree with your next post.
... I too have nothing personal against a poster, only the words which might cause pain to others.
I will rest the case now and move on.
Blessings in Greetings my friend.:)
We'll catch up somewhere later.

RA, seriously ? You were doing fine with the garbage being thrown at you. The kids don't have anything to do with it or does their parenting skills. Don't let them beat you like that man, ignore them when they start getting to you. I feel sad for you right now cause I have a feeling you wish you hadn't gone there. We all fall, just get back up again. Hang in there man :)

I'm teaching dude. The examples here are way too good to pass up. I'm not discussing personal lives or other people's romantic lives or even their children, religious public behaviour is public property because it affects everyone but turn that table all you want by all means, I appreciate the help.

Dead flies will cause even a bottle of perfume to stink. Yes an ounce of foolishness can outweigh a pound of wisdom and honor.

The hearts of the wise lead them to do right, and the hearts of the foolish lead them to do evil. You can identify fools just by the way they waldk down the street.

If your boss is angry with you, don't quit. A quiet spirit can overcome even great mistakes.

There is another evil I have seen as I have watched the world go by. Kings and rulers make a grave mistake if they give foolish people great authority, and if they fail to give people of proven worth their rightful place of dignity. I have even seen servants riding like princes and princes walking like servants.

When you dig a well, you may fall in. When you demolish an old wall, you could be bitten by a snake. When you work in a quarry, stones might fall and crush you. Whey you chop wood there is danger with each stroke of your ax Such are the risk of life.

Since a dull ax requires great strength, sharpen the blade. That value of wisdom it helps you succeed.

It does no good to charm a snake after it has bitten you.

It is a pleasure to listen to wise word, but the speech of fools brings them to ruin.

Since fools base their thoughts on foolish premises, their conclusions will be wicked madness.

<quoted text>A wise man once said...

Simply because someone airs their dirty laundry doesn't mean that you should pick it up and sniff it...

or maybe it went something like this...

Never wear someone's dirty laundry (especially those personal items) on your head...

I think it all has something to do with smelling like the dirty laundry.

Now I am not even sure that it was a wise man that told me this...

I think I just made it up...
