"The "exclusivity" of religion was brought about in the West with the introduction of monotheism. Before that, in the matriarchal period, the choice of what God one choose to worship was far more personal, based upon the individual…"

""They're the "literalists" desperate for structure with little or no self-identity."  That is dead on.  Everything they do is an expression of "groupthink". Maui Surfer, they use the bible verse that…"

"A showroom floor entrance. That is both amazing and entirely unsurprising on reflection- not sure if the Tokyo HQ would care, they fry an awful lot of chicken every day in Japan too and once put up with a surprising number of Jesuits. That said,…"

Ben Sen commented on Rodney Roe's blog post O'Reilly is Out, Carlson is in; it is Just Business
"I've watched Carlson.  He's less gregarious than O'Reilly, more of a twerp as bespeaks his background.  Let's see how many are simply O'Reilly devotees vs. ideological true believers.  "

O'Reilly is Out, Carlson is in; it is Just Business

Posted on April 22, 2017 at 3:44am 19 Comments

The market has spoken.  Bill O’Reilly, formerly the darling of Fox News and the Murdoch family, went from a cash cow to a business liability as lawsuits alleging sexual harassment became public and advertisers distanced themselves from Fox.  O’Reilly was not fired for being a despicable human being, but for the only reason he could be; he was threatening the investment return of…

I just posted and tried to implant a link. Hope I made it work correctly. Ah, scrolling above, I don't think I did. Next time!

As to your question, yes, I spoke at the Eugene/Springfield UU. Twice, in fact. Once on military issues and another time on UU'ism - a two-fold path. What's your association?

There's a party going on with tunes, flicks, and chat here and at Open Salon! Help us build it out of  the ashes which O.S. machinery created with slow loads, etc.? We'd love to have you.

I'm not sure why you arent seeing the 'forgot password' option on sign in.  Try this link:  

http://oursalon.ning.com/main/authorization/signIn?target=http%3A%2F%2Foursalon.ning.com%2F

just below the "sign in" button you should see a link for "i forgot my password"

if the link doesnt appear there, try this one:

http://oursalon.ning.com/main/authorization/requestPasswordReset?previousUrl=http%3A%2F%2Foursalon.ning.com%2Fmain%2Fauthorization%2FsignIn%3Ftarget%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Foursalon.ning.com%252F

if none of this works, please let me know and i will make inquiries about it.  Also, sorry for the delay in responding.

thanks,

lorianne
