Far Religious Right are Anti-Union, Anti-Freedom, but Pro-Atheist Now

Pat Robertson and the incredibly extreme far right religious are anything but religious. But when I read that they were joining forces with the Ayn Rand Libertarian Atheists called the Tea Party, well I just could not believe it. Wasn't the most hated group after the ACLU, the Atheists? Now the Ayn Rand Libertarian Koch brothers and their Americans for Prosperity are employing Ralph Reed to fix them up with a date with the Evangelistas.

But then I read further on and discovered Pat Robertson Sides With African Leader Who Won't Leave Office: Media Matters for America. Ties to such great men as Charles Taylor and Laurent Gbagbo because they bring with them the ability to make great wealth through diamond mines in their countries.

Then I had that moment of sudden understanding and slapped myself up side the head. Remember that the Catholic and Protestant Evangelistas Movement in America has absolutely nothing to do with belief in Gods, or anything to do with an afterlife. This movement is only concerned with this life and accumulation of great wealth. It is a Calvinist pro-worshipping of the Golden Calf. So it is very easy to see so-called Christain Evangelistas sidling up to rich Atheists like the Koch brothers.

The Tea Partiers as run by Americans for Prosperity are Ayn Rand Libertarian Atheists who couldn't care less whether the Evangelistas claim some false faith to advance their cause. Just so long as they bring along their millions of voters to support their faith that limited or no government is next to godlyness. You have to keep reminding yourself that the Christians throughout history have been consistent, if nothing else. Consistent in making this shit up as they go along. The Christains are about to become Anarchists with faith in Libertarian Atheists who worship great wealth. Pray for them.

Conservative Catholic Majority on US Supreme Court Uphold Right of Catholic Schools to Receive Tax Subsidies

The Roman Catholic Church in the United States is no longer capable of sustaining its religion on its own. The people are obviously not there any longer to support this religion in the US. So if the people won't support their religion, then the religion will just have to go its long time friend, the government and ask it to once again subsidize their activities. Our illustrious conservative Catholic majority on the US Supreme Court voted 5 to 4 to uphold Arizona's efforts to provide tax payer funds to prop up failing parochial schools.

Justice Kagan speculated on whether there was any difference between this case, and say, a state that elected to purchase crucifixes for anyone that wanted to have one. Kagan asserted in her dissent that a state could overcome a court challenge by making the subsidy a tax exemption. She suggested: 'The state “could authorize that person to claim a tax credit equal to the price she paid.” For example, if that person's state tax bill was $400 but she'd purchased a 10-inch, walnut crucifix for $40, she would owe the state only $360.'

I can't wait for Virginia to try Justice Kagan's idea of a $500 tax credit to "reward Jews.... for their religious devotion." Like that would ever happen.

What both of these articles conclude is that with Arizona Christian School Tuition Organization vs. Winn, the wall between religion and government has been breached. After over 200 years of a government required to allow the people to maintain control of their religious organizations, those religious organizations in order to overcome the apathy by the people towards their religious institutions, now allows religious organizations to lobby the government in order to continue their very existence. In other words, the government is the last resource to prop up religion in America because obviously the people have turned their back on their religious organizations.

Americans United: Religious Right Groups And Your Tax Dollars

Read Religious Right Groups And Your Tax Dollars: It’s A Bad Marriage « The Wall of Separation

It is past time to get our president to stop funding anti-science religion, anti-LGBT religion, anti-human rights religion, anti-women religion with this damn so called Faith Based and Neighborhood Partnerships. One of the worse parts is the total lack of accountability of the funding given over to these completely crooked and unethical organizations. It is the greatest threat to our secular nation. My tax dollars are being misused to lobby against Same Sex Marriage for stark crazy bigoted religious reasons. Shame! SH
