President Biden, critics corner

This was probably the biggest thing as a child that brought me to the conclusion that it was all bs. The fact that there were different groups of people with opposing viewpoints, all equally convinced that theirs was the "one true way". The only reasonable conclusion is that they are all wrong.

Hi Stumpy,

Re:  the biggest thing as a child that brought me to the conclusion that it was all bs. 

For me, it was about 1956.  I was 16 & my brother was 15.  For some unknown reason, our mother decided we should attend Bible Study.  This was at a church that my family attended maybe twice a year.  What triggered the idea of attendance at two random times of the year, I have no idea.

Anyway, during these studies, the pastor was telling us about how if one accepts Jesus Christ they will go to Heaven.  I got into a discussion with him about this.  We went back & forth.  He told me that a person can live any type of life that they might want; good, bad, evil, does not matter.  If they accepted Jesus Christ on their deathbed, they would get into Heaven.

At that time, I thought that was about the nuttiest thing I had ever heard.  I've been a heathen ever since.

Paying too much attention to this overstates the strength of this movement. It needs watching and we need to be aware for sure. It is more than a fringe group but less than a serious threat. For now.

So you're saying at this point that the Christian right doesn't control or call the tune of the GOP in American politics?

Yes, it is a culture. And it is a culture that has a very long and successful tradition of suppressing by whatever means it can find any competing cultures.

While simultaneously claiming victimhood.

But to Bigun's point, as annoying as that is, they have as much of a right to exist as any other religion.

Correct. Not only that but the Christian right is not monolithic. The really base of people calling for this are not doing primarily because the want more Christ in society. They are doing it because they are white nationalists. They fear losing the control that they believe is the source of all things good. They are a large part of the GoP, and they have outsize influence because they vote in primaries, but they are not as strong as they appear.

Exactly, but no more right than any other religion. And they are far from the most annoying group. However they are the largest group in our corner of the world. I actually believe that eventually Islam will overcome that. Unfortunate as that is.

Hi Coreece,

It would have been more cool to not even do it.  Just another dipshit from the boonies.

Re:  “I mean no disrespect to him.”

BullShit.

Oregon father of four who told President Biden ‘Let’s Go Brandon’ on Christmas Eve call said he meant it in jest - oregonlive.com

I agree, this guy's a dipship. . .but Biden's pretty hilarious.

Jared’s 11-year-old Griffin told the president he wanted a piano for Christmas. His son Hunter said he wanted a Switch.

“Switch?” Biden questioned.

 

He's on a roll!

It’s official, COVID deaths under Biden are now more than under Trump, even with three vaccines, several therapeutics and more resources he still failed to “shut down the virus” as he promised.

Lucky for him they aren’t the people who voted for him

A guy using his kid's time for a Christmas call with the president to tell the president to fuck himself does sound like one of those fine American Republican Christians.

 

And now the little snowflake is complaining because he's 'being attacked for utilizing his freedom of speech'.

No dumbass, you're being attacked for being an asshole.

Three Fox News articles, almost in a row, and all on their website as of this morning. I think they sum things up perfectly. Refuse to cooperate and then blame the person you won’t cooperate with for failing you.
