I DON’T GET IT

One of my little amusements is baiting the Christians on the Breitbart.com news blog. They’re so self-righteous and arrogant. Self-righteousness is a primary component of Christianity, along with a belief that Christians are persecuted everywhere. I think they sucked onto the persecution thing because it actually belongs to the Jews, and they’re jealous. But I could be wrong.

Anyway, what I don’t get is that it’s always Conservatives, aka mostly Republicans, who hop up and down defending Christianity, never Socialists/Democrats, and the reason I don’t get it is because the Democrats are generally pretty loony and lost in Liberal space, while the Republicans, being conservative, tend to be pretty down to Earth. So why is it that they’re mostly the ones who still believe in spirits and supernatural stuff while the Democrats don’t? It doesn’t make any sense to me.

I get the “God is on our side” sort of righteous animosity, I do. It’s the Conservatives who want to maintain order and have us live happy and healthy lives, and claiming ownership of The Deity is part of that drive for control over evildoing and disorder. But the Democrats want control too, yet they deny existence of supernatural deities when claiming belief and ownership would benefit them. Instead, the Democrat Party has become the party of atheists and the Republican Party is the God Lover party.

On just this one issue, the Democrats are in touch with Reality. On everything else, they’re bonkers, while the Republicans are mostly in touch with reality and common sense but totally superstitious.

What a strange world.

    Religion? Politics? Is there really any difference? Some people embrace views that have no rational justification. Karl Max, Mohamed, self obsessed, self serving people with simplistic ideals. Facts and the realities of human nature are all that matter. If it won’t work, don’t waste our time.

    Not just the US. That’s a real problem here too.

    I am a “right winger” economically in that I believe in a free market where ability is rewarded, and in the idea of a cohesive society, opposed to migrants who are not prepared to integrate and embrace our core principles.

    On the other hand, I am liberal in that I believe in freedom provides it does not unduly impact others, so have no problem with gays etc. What people do with their arses is their own business.

    Unfortunately, impossible to find any party one can agree with totally.

    PS Mind you, your Democrats are not half as left wing/loony as our Labour party currently.
