What Is Religious Bigotry?

Listen up, people. It's not often Chiefy admits he was wrong. A short time ago, I responded to a Facebook post about Bernie Sander's "no" vote on a Trump appointee, Russell Vought. The post claimed that Sanders voted as he did because he is biased against Christians, and I disagreed. I defended Sanders' position. Now,... Continue Reading →

More Rearrangement

This is just a note to let my readers know what is going on. As I continue to reorganize the Café, I am moving anything related to religion, mythology and the like to the Real World Blog with its associated exploration of faith-free religion. You can now find the Spacetime, Mother Earth, and Sentient Life... Continue Reading →

How do you Solve a Problem Like the President?

At least France did not repeat the mistake of the United States. The winner of their presidential election is Emmanuel Macron, a young centrist who seems reasonable, in stark contrast to his opponent, Marine Le Pen. Macron will likely have to pull together a coalition from the other parties in order to govern effectively, according... Continue Reading →

Crooked Trump Steals the Show

I am peeved that I have to address this matter again. I had so hoped that crooked Trump—excuse me, President-elect Donald J. crooked Trump—would by now be relegated to the status of an embarrassing piece of history. Nope. He won, not by an Electoral landslide, as said Reinhold "Reince" Priebus, but by a technicality. He... Continue Reading →

Trump is Not a Flawed Candidate

Contrary to what you may have heard, Donald Trump is not a flawed candidate for president of the United States of America. All the others who are or have been in the race are flawed candidates, to one degree or another, but Trump is not. Don't get me wrong; I'm not saying he's a good... Continue Reading →
