People read scripture as if each story enabled them to obtain eternal life--but at what cost. A literal reading is enough to scare most people away from religion, yet pastors, priests, rabbis and others see the Old Testament as a guide for life: one filled with rape, pillage, and holocaust.
Joseph Ratzinger rejects modern studies and scientific advancement in an effort to return the Roman Catholic Church to the tenth century and superstition. Attacking the family as being composed of loving individuals, Ratzinger prefers blind obedience to outdated regulations and interpretations of a church that did not exist before 325 CE.
Mitt Romney made more than $250 million in outsourcing American jobs overseas, establishing plants in Communist China where up to 24 workers share a bedroom and seek escape through suicide. Since 2009, Romney has worked to bankrupt the American auto industry, and has been partially successful, by funneling cash into offshore accounts set up in the name of his wife and son Taggart.
Mitt Romney has bullied males and females all of his life, his last salvo being his declaration during the Presidential Debates that he had binders of women; but before then, he bullied those he assumed to be gay at Cranbrook School (for Boys) in Michigan, and later as a Bishop in the Mormon church bullied women openly. What is behind his psychology--I argue that he was bullied at home and within the Mormon church.
Mitt Romney has serious psychological problems that can be catagorized as narcissistic psychosis: from bullying to demanding, anything to win what he wants regardless of whom is hurt or what is destroyed. The Republican Party has devolved into a party of lies, deceits, fraud and denying basic labor rights. It is a return to the nineteenth century with robber barons and wealthy crooks funded by the Koch Brothers.
