Frank, you are amazing. You call it like it is. Thank you. Any that disagree with your conclusions are just plain stupid or in denial. Or both.
Agreed on this one 150% despite the harsh albeit completely apposite and apropos rhetoric and over emotive delivery .
And just as a reminder to anyone buying into Trump’s ” I’m not a racist ” comments yesterday .
On file in the public record … literally 1000’s of pages of court documents accusations claims and suits settled out of court showing what a blatant racist Trump is and has been since his emergence into the public eye in the 70’s .
Suffice it to say Evangelicals / Fundamentalists ( and in fact all Christofascists which includes a majority of the Catholic ( R & O ) and ecumenical churches in America ) … get yer freaking act together before you end up burying yourselves deep within the muck and mire of your own hypocrisies
Fact is though .. it might already be too late … but at least you can make an effort
Doesn’t Trump get a pass from the evangelicals because of the ‘Cyrus’ anointing? A pagan king but used by God for the better good?
My buddy believes it. That comparison was started by the Prime Minister of Israel.

[An interesting analogue to Oprah’s recent speech…]
Sacred music: if you liked Bortnyansky you may like this:
Spem in Alium by Thomas Tallis (1505 – 1585: only 400 years old!)
Poignantly beautiful chanting. Sadly, at the hate-rate these Fundamentalist Christofascists are going, they are even going to give the music a bad reputation.
Sigh .. first off … please get with the program ..it aint just the fundies and evies deserving the moniker christofascists … that one firmly falls upon the majority of Eastern and Roman Catholics along with the majority of Ecumenical mainstream christianity as well
Second …not to worry Ms Abadie … music has long since separated itself from the church even when that music sprang originally from the church .. cause music .. unlike the church .. is completely autonomous and independent in and of itself
Dear John Norris:
Tallis’ work is sheer magnificence! Among my favorites by the Tallis Scholars …
Arvo Part … need I say more ?
… ok … one more needs be said .. the Hilliard Ensemble .
Now, to the evangelicals as they always preach how they have the spirit of the lord from that third person of the trinity giving them all sorts of wisdom and such other utter nonsense as they call it the “mind of christ” …well that christ must be a dumb f***.. for sure….as they still support Trump at very high levels after polls and this is simply amazing….
The video of that women escorted out of that hospital by those thugs still haunts me as I must get used to this new foreign America I find myself in….
Thanks for both of your links especially the Tallis scholars….
Even thinking about Frank’s dear rant can not spoil such fine art!!
