  1. I'm posting a link to this story, even though there is a Santorum/Duggar thread, because this is from the UK and goes into a lot of detail arond Amy's reasoning and messages around political beliefs, candidate support. etc. Please feel free to merge if needed http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2081493/Duggar-family-19-Kids-And-Counting-endorse-Rick-Santorum.html This is about JB from the article, ..."He drove up in the family's bus with 12 of their 19 kids in tow, but the kids didn't stay outside with the crowd of supporters for too long, as some of them did not have winter clothes. Nevermind the chill, Mr Duggar told a Washington Post reporter, saying 'it’s worth it. We believe in Rick Santorum. He’s a godly, Christian man who consistently has stood for what’s right.' Why am I not surprised that "some" of the children did not have adequate clothing for cold winter weather? Of course I'm now also wondering if the J'slaves wore their flip-flops on the trip. Great way to parent JB- why could you not buy each child a pair of new winter shoes this Christmas?
  2. Got invited to this FB 'event' today. A bit of whacky goodness for this Monday morning! http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=2 ... ent_invite Whacko has a website, too! http://www.thecryofmidnight.webs.com/ He is seriously spamming the FB IFB survivor page here http://www.facebook.com/groups/35429320847/ have fun
  3. newest wrinkle in Illinois... the Amish want their state issued photo IDS to come sans-photo. Legislature has agreed to study the issue.
  4. Bachmann very publicly attended a church service that was almost entirely devoted to the "sin" of homosexuality and included a video from an "ex-gay" saved by Jesus. http://firstread.msnbc.msn.com/_news/20 ... osexuality
  5. Here is a link to a YouTube video of her giving a talk about it. It presents the same thesis as in her book. It might have been discussed before on the old board since it is a few years old but I just discovered it and so I thought I would share in case others were interested.
  6. In the United States it seems that those to the far right have defined what it means to be religious. One of the reasons why I like this video is because it shows a different side of religion. We have so many crazy fundies on this site, that I thought that it might be nice to show religious people who actually do care about the poor. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/07/2 ... 12337.html I changed the name of the thread because I wanted the title to better reflect the subject.
  7. I was reading an amusing & intelligent article on the Bachmann/Lutherans-think-papacy-is-antiChrist brouhaha getreligion.org/2011/07/more-breaking-news-from-1537/ when its description of Dan Savage's words about "angrily fucking" Bachmann and/or Santorum hit me as another term for "rape." So I googled that and found this dailycaller.com/2011/07/16/comedian-on-bachmann-i-would-fck-her-angrily/ That's extremism of a whole nother sort and I have to speak out against it.
  8. Even as someone who was raised in fundie circles, I've never been able to understand why Bachmann has so many fans. The more I read about her, the scarier she sounds. I read this profile earlier and found it pretty illuminating so thought I'd share: http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2 ... igion.html I particularly like this quote from Frank Schaeffer, "Michele Bachmann says certain things that sound crazy to the general public...But to anybody raised in the environment of the evangelical right wing, what she says makes perfect sense." Edited to add - And the circle of crazy expands: As I went back through the article to find something a friend asked about, I noticed that Michele Bachmann studied at William and Mary School of Law in the late 80s/early 90s. I wonder if she and Doug Phillips would have crossed paths?
  9. Guys... I'm starting to worry. http://firstread.msnbc.msn.com/_news/20 ... -gop-field She can't actually win this thing right? Can you imagine? It would be like having the Stinking Housewife in the White House. I know we have some anti-fundie Republicans around here... what would you do if she were the nominee?
  10. littlegreenfootballs.com/page/253044_Michele_Bachmanns_Home_Schoole I don't think I have ever heard of Generation Joshua. According to this, they train home schoolers to be political activists for the GOP.
  11. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/07/1 ... 97451.html Has this been brought up here before? Perry initiated the event, and is using his time a governor/resources (such as the official website) to support this nonsense. I'm embarrassed and actually a little surprised this is happening in Houston.

  13. http://religion.blogs.cnn.com/2011/07/1 ... ?hpt=hp_t2 now she is a member of an undisclosed non-denominational church. uh huh. what is it with politicians joining whacked out churches (like Obama and the rev. wright)?
  14. I like to read Future Fathers because the young man is a little older than my son, Chris. I doubt that they would have much in common. My son is going to college and considers himself a Deist. Anyway, I thought the remark that the writer wrote about socialists was humorous. Damn you, socialists. ;) futurefatherhood.blogspot.com/

    The Family Leader?

    Anyone heard of this group? Apparently they had a pledge out for politicians to sign saying that marriage is between a man and a woman, and that "robust childbearing and reproduction is beneficial to U.S. demographic, economic, strategic and actuarial health and security." Also, at one point there was a section saying that African American children were more likely to be raised by two parents back in the slave days than they are today. This sweet little tid bit was removed after some people complained, though not before a couple of politicians, including Bachmann (surprise, surprise), signed it. Here's a link to the CNN article. http://www.cnn.com/2011/POLITICS/07/13/ ... index.html
  16. And I quote: http://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle ... ory_1.html So, who would we be electing? Michele Bachmann, JD, or her husband, Marcus Bachmann, PhD?

  18. Arizona to start partial Medicaid freeze PAUL DAVENPORT Published: Jul 1, 2011 5:58 PM PHOENIX (AP) - Federal officials cleared the way Friday for Arizona to bar thousands of low-income residents from seeking Medicaid coverage in the next year as the state tries to close a budget shortfall projected at roughly $1 billion. The partial freeze that will prevent adults without children from either enrolling for the first time or re-enrolling in the Medicaid program if they left previously is set to begin next Friday. It had initially been scheduled to begin a week earlier but the state needed federal clearance to implement the program, and federal officials weren't yet ready Thursday to act on the latest version submitted earlier this week. Estimates on the number of low-income Arizonans affected in the next year because of the July 8 freeze and a smaller one for parents planned to take effect Oct. 1 for another eligibility category range from 130,000 to 150,000. The state's Medicaid now covers approximately 1.3 million. Cindy Mann, director of the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, said federal officials regret the state's decision to reduce eligibility and were only acting on the implementation plan. The partial enrollment freeze is part of a package of eligibility reductions and other changes being implemented to save a projected $500 million to eliminate about half of a state budget shortfall that was projected for the fiscal year that began Friday. Along with the freeze, the implementation plan approved Friday includes provisions for appeal rights, notices to beneficiaries and steps to shift people to other eligibility categories. Monica Coury, assistant director of the state's Medicaid program, known as the Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System, said earlier Friday that federal clearance of the implementation plan would mean the freeze will take effect July 8. State officials need the time to make preparations that include changing computer programs, she said. On Thursday, a judge denied a request by opponents of the partial freeze for a temporary restraining order to block implementation. Arizona expanded its Medicaid eligibility when voters approved a 2000 law, and that is the core issue in a legal challenge to the eligibility change. Opponents argue that the state cannot scale back eligibility because doing so violates state constitutional protections for voter-approved laws. Republican Gov. Jan Brewer and Republican legislators contend that the 2000 law's wording gives the Legislature flexibility to fit eligibility to available funding. The court case remains pending despite the judge's denial of the request for a temporary restraining order. Tim Hogan, a lawyer for the challengers, said he knows of no legal avenue to block the July 8 start of the freeze. However, Hogan said a new request for a temporary restraining order is planned once people are actually barred from enrolling. The judge on Thursday said it hadn't been demonstrated that the planned freeze had actually harmed anybody. Hogan said the challengers' lawyers believed the enrollment freeze is barred under maintenance-of-effort requirements imposed on states' Medicaid programs by the federal health care overhaul. "We think the law requires them to maintain the effort that was in place and the federal government is letting them get away with it," he said. Mann said in her letter approving the implementation plan that the plan itself was required as a result of the state's decision to scale back its program under a renewal of its status as a Medicaid demonstration project. "This is a matter of state choice," Mann wrote.
  19. Found this little tidbit while perusing the news yesterday.... it seems that Michele Bachman's husband runs a christian counseling center; he calls gays "barbarians" and has some sort of 'pray the gay away' program. http://thinkprogress.org/lgbt/2011/06/2 ... sciplined/ These people make me sick, and while I don't think she's electable, it scares me to death that there's actually a large portion of her followers who agree with this.
