Mike's Blog Round Up

That Old-Time Religion...

Today, we're looking at the effects of the radicalized Conservative Christian Movement.

First, Vixen Strangely at Strangely Blogged, introduces us to Phineas Priesthood-- only one of a growing new breed of radicalized "Christian" Militias springing up across the country.

Next, Mark Kleiman, in a 2008 article, gives a very fine deep backgrounder on that "leaderless" organization at The Reality-Based Community.

Author K.C. Boyd at The Political Carnival has quite the extensive round-up of the "Christian" Right's most recent abuses.

Finally, Steven D. at Booman Tribune examines the eliminationist rhetoric that Conservative Preachers are delivering as sermons to their flocks every Sunday.

Bonus Track: JurassicPork at Brilliant At Breakfast is legitimately worried about the GOP's riders to the CRomnibus, and future GOP Majority Legislation, too in his piece, "Congressional Cassandras." Please read this!

"When you’re one step ahead of the crowd you’re a genius. When you’re two steps ahead, you’re a crackpot." –Rabbi Shlomo Riskin
