Even though The Mad Abbott and SloMo are gone and Dominic will be gone in months the religious nutters are still trying hard to takeover our right wing parties.

Religious right roadmap to Liberal Party control revealed as internal ructions over church groups increase.

I wonder if they realise that it was not only the federal LNP's incompetence that got them wiped out in the last election, but it was also the foolish religious crap that those idiots were trying to force/push onto us.

If those religious nutters want to meddle in politics then they should be paying top taxes for that privilege.


Could you Explain the Above to where it Makes Sense?

Thanks

... The religious nutters that are meddling in politics are taking a free (no taxes) ride as supposedly being a non-political charity that pays no taxes?...

The man who almost brought Australia to the edge of a cliff is a very good example why neither should be mixed together.

According to a bombshell new book, some colleagues liked Scott Morrison’s religious faith while others found it “weird”.

Most Aussies believe in this comment.

...“I was horrified, because my view is, keep politics, religion, and sex separate,’’ Ms Andrews said...
And this 1.

...“Australians respect religion,’’ Liberal Senator Andrew Bragg said.

“Many Australians are cultural Christians and appreciate the special role religious institutions play in our society. But my sense is Australians don’t want to see religion feature heavily in public life. They want it to be a private matter and not in the public domain.”...

Israel is now the perfect example of why not.

Israel's Greatest Enemy Is Now Itself.

...The new government in Israel, led by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, was sworn in on on Thursday. This government is considered to be the most right-wing in Israel's history and is also the first in which the majority of its members are religious. The right-wing nature of the government, including some members' plans for annexation of the West Bank, has drawn concern from many around the world. However, the real danger this government poses to Israel's future may be its religious makeup. The influence of religious parties within the government, particularly the ultra-Orthodox and Religious Zionist parties, has raised concerns about the long-term viability of the country as a Jewish and democratic state....

Just 1 more reason.

Rep. Lauren Boebert suggested God used her to stand up to to 'demons' including 'a speaker of the House'.

I bet that she doesn't actually believe it herself, but it'll get the attention of the brain dead MAGA supporters to back her false cause.

Most especially when pollies link themselves to religious hate groups.

'Radical gender ideology': Mike Pence attacks transgender children in the name of God.

Less than one month after the January 6 insurrection Mike Pence made one of his first moves as a former vice president: he joined Young America’s Foundation as a Ronald Reagan Presidential Scholar. YAF, a decades-old youth outreach group designed to influence high school and college-aged conservatives, boasts alumni like Trump architect of child separation policies Stephen Miller. It has received millions from the DeVos family, and has a chapter that was listed as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center....
Forget "in the name of god" and get on with the "in the name of the people" instead.

Unfortunately dead crazy stuff:


Wieambilla shooting: Australia police ambush deemed religious terror attack

A shooting ambush in a remote Australian town that left six people dead has been declared a religiously-motivated terrorist attack.

Authorities say it is the first time Christian extremist ideology has been linked to a terror attack in Australia...

... "Christian extremist ideology has been linked to other attacks around the world, but this is the first time we've seen it appear in Australia,"...



Strange and deadly.

Stay safe folks!

Boebert is certainly a very good example of why.

"Then why are you allowed to vote?": Lauren Boebert Sparks Outrage Over Views on Constitution and Church-State Relations.

....During a Sunday service, Boebert said, “The church is supposed to direct the government. The government is not supposed to direct the church. That is not how our Founding Fathers intended it.”

She continued: “I’m tired of this separation of church and state junk that’s not in the Constitution. It was in a stinking letter, and it means nothing like what they say it does.”.....
Just take a look at those countries where religion rules and the total mess that they're in.
