Christians are taking time from their drive to punish women who access abortions, to celebrate and act of prolicide (the human sacrifice of one’s own son) in order to “take away the sins of the world”.
I don’t have a problem with people making up imaginary gods and showing devotion to them (clap if you believe in fairies!)
It becomes a problem when gullible people become the base of a political party and affect the sanity of a nation.
A racist white fundamentalist Christian base is the heart of Trump’s power over the Republican Party. The results of that Christian base electing idiots and supporting Trump sycophants has pushed the Grand Old Party off the rails.
Here is the result:
Finland and Sweden are about to apply for NATO membership, and have the support of all the Nation Members of NATO – except the United States. For the US to agree to the addition of Finland and Sweden’s membership, the US Senate must ratify the request with a two-thirds majority. If the US doesn’t support the entrance of new members, the request are dead in the water.
This means that sixteen Republican Senators and Joe Manchin will have to cast votes in favor. The only thing you can count on the Republican Party to do is cut taxes: abortion, guns and god are just to keep the punters in their seats.
