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!
