Wiki - Schools

LJ-SEC: (ORIGINALLY POSTED BY [info]jehovahsfitness)

I added a section for Dominionist schools on the Wiki (here). I just put in the names of the few that came to mind, I'm sure it can be filled out even more. I didn't put Oral Roberts on there because I wasn't sure if it has domionist links and I didn't want to jump to conclusions. Also this list may be of some help.

This is an interesting article


This article from ThudFactor talks about how fundementalism isn't just for religious people:

Many atheists view religion through the prism of fundamentalism, and faced with a religious person with a radically different vision of deity find themselves at a loss. At this point, some atheists themselves become fundamentalist, insisting that the religious person they are talking to is either intentionally misrepresenting their beliefs or does not really qualify as religious.

But fundamentalism is a disease of community, not a hallmark of religion. The fundamentalist impulse—the pursuit of dogmatic purity for the sake of dogmatic purity—can be seen in almost any group, political or religious, vital or trival. Just as there are Christians who seek to prove they are more “Christian” than everyone else, there are atheists, political partisans, and Star Trek aficionados who do the same.

Religious fundamentalism leverages the language of religion and takes advantage of personal religious experience for authoritarian, earthly political gain. Many religious folks (including, arguably, Christ) consider the fundamentalist disease a corruption of and obstruction to genuine religious practice and experience. As such, we find religious fundamentalism particularly awful and far more of a threat to us than secular society or atheists; we are certainly not just moderate versions of fundamentalists.

Quite an interesting article.

be exempt from the bills on Violence in Gaming?

Left Behind: Eternal Forces is a modern day RTS rooted firmly in the days, weeks and months directly after the Rapture. Millions across the globe vanish in the blink of an eye, and the rest of the world is left wondering, “What do I do now?”. With such a massive disruption to the world's social, political and economic structures, a great power vacuum is created; and one way or another, something has got to fill it.

oh,yea, I wrote my senator about the game..... you should, too, since it is no different than the hate games on Nazi sites
