  •  you started a meme thread, and i'm going to... (6+ / 0-)

    ... post a diary tomorrow as part of this discussion.  

    Yes I agree with you and the present diarist.

    But what I'm going to suggest is a direct religious attack: that what the religious right is offering is bad religion, is heretical, and is running cover for Mammon worship (wealth and worldly power).  

    Americans are notably reluctant to attack each others' religions, but the religious right has shown no such reluctance, as has been pointed out by experts such as Frederick Clarkson and Troutfishing.  It's time we stop shirking that battle, and go directly into attack mode on that front.

    Dominionism is to Christianity as Talibanism is to Islam: extreme, pernicious, and sufficiently out of the mainstream that it should be possible to isolate and confine it, and render it marginalized and inoperative.  

    We got the future back.

    •  That's not a direct attack. (0+ / 0-)

      It's the same indirect weak attack you've always promoted here - to avoid just saying simply, "Your religion is false", and instead say "Your religion is true but it doesn't say what you thought it said."

      This fight will not be won by converting fundamentalists into a slightly different type of believer.  It will be won by converting them into nonbelievers.
