a row of posts RE: freethoughtblogs.com
If you like the flow of different ideas steadily washing over your mind, there’s freethoughtblogs.com. Several blog posts of interest were That Allegedly Liberal Media on a Pew study of positive vs. negative media reports on presidential candidates.
The Newt Gingrich article was of special interest as I saw him in the last Republican debate make some rather inane observations. “Does faith matter? Absolutely.” Gingrich said. “How can I trust you with power if you don’t pray?” As this article points out, and I was so stunned to hear, Gingrich said that Americans should value religion first, above morality and knowledge.
This ties into related posts I’ve made about that radical connection from deep within our evolutionary (which is now deep within or gene) of GODANDCOUNTRY. I’ll leave those arguments for the other posts. I’ll let Herb Silverman (Secular Coalition for America) have the last word on this topic, “We may be the last minority against whom intolerance and discrimination are not only permitted, but also sometimes promoted by politicians.”
