Humanity, Not Quite Ready for Civilization: South Carolina, Take Down That Flag

Part II in a series that explores whether humanity is ready for Civilization. Read Part I here. The eyes of the world rest upon South Carolina. I would say the eyes of the “civilized” world, except I have a little trouble using that descriptor for any planet that has had so many global genocides in […]

Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Wants You To Know That Christianity Ended Slavery (Video)

I really wish President Obama hadn’t made his comments about the Crusades a few days ago at the National Prayer Breakfast, because I don’t believe the comparison is really valid. The discussion over radical Islam is referring to present day atrocities that are being carried out, not something that happened a thousand years ago. But […]

Fundamentalist Christian College Accused of Using Students for Slave Labor

The president of an unaccredited fundamentalist Christian college is held on $250000 bond on charges of exploiting international students and using them for slave labor. Reginald Wayne Miller, the president and founder of Cathedral Bible College, brought in international students under the guise of training them to be pastors and missionaries. According to prosecutors for the […]

We Saw Cliven Bundy’s Paleoconservatism from Miles Away

Nobody should feign surprise that Cliven Bundy is a raging racist and dreams of slave plantations, just as nobody should be surprised that a white man who owes one million dollars in back taxes would claim that black people in low-income housing are the real moochers. I referenced in my article about him yesterday that his anti-federal government, States’ Rights tirades […]

Cliven Bundy’s Racist Remarks Prove How Little Conservatives Have Evolved Since the Days of Slavery (Video)

By now most people know who Cliven Bundy is.  What we didn’t fully know until now was that he’s an unabashed blatant racist. If you haven’t read his highly offensive comments about “the Negro,” take a look (via the New York Times): “I want to tell you one more thing I know about the Negro,” […]

Pathetic Mississippi Tea Party Candidate Defends Sons of Confederate Veterans, Says They’re Not Racist

I always laugh whenever someone tries to defend the confederacy to me.  The confederacy was a secessionist movement within the United States that tried to form their own nation built on the belief that human beings should be deemed “property.” I don’t care if you had relatives who fought for the confederacy (they’re actually traitors […]

Celebrating Black History in the Shadow of Satan’s “Pitchfork”

A wise, though controversial, historian once wrote:  “How can slavery be described?  Perhaps not at all by those who have not experienced it.” While there is some truth in this remark, those who have not worn shackles are not excused from memorializing and contemplating their horror. I learned that lesson firsthand long ago on the […]

What Every American Should Know about the Biblical Definition of Capitalism: Part I

Thoughts Concerning a ‘Biblical Definition of Capitalism,’ and the Millions of Deceived Christians Who Mistake Adam Smith’s Wealth of Nations as a Long-Lost Pauline Epistle, and Who are Convinced that Karl Marx and Judas Iscariot Do the Watusi Nightly in Dante’s Ninth Circle of Hell, yet Who Think that the Holy Spirit was Just Playing […]

Ted Nugent Goes Off on Racist Rant, Says Liberals are “Slave Drivers” to the Black Community

Let me preface this with a proclamation: I cannot stand Ted Nugent.  The very sight of this bottom-feeding hypocrite just makes my blood boil.  Hearing him spew his ridiculous nonsense is a true test to my patience as a human being.  He’s one of those people who, while I never wish bad things on anyone, […]
