America’s Empty-Church Problem - The Atlantic

blue cross on red and white radiating stripes

The culture war over religious morality has faded; in its place is something much worse.

Over the past decade, pollsters charted something remarkable: Americans—long known for their piety—were fleeing organized religion in increasing numbers. The vast majority still believed in God. But the share that rejected any religious affiliation was growing fast, rising from 6 percent in 1992 to 22 percent in 2014. Among Millennials, the figure was 35 percent.

Hating Gerrymandering Is Easy. Fixing It Is Harder. | The Cook Political Report

Cook Political Report

As politics in the U.S. has polarized along geographic and racial lines, drawing political maps has become a partisan arms race. Even the smallest decisions about where to draw district boundaries can alter the power dynamic in Congress — without a single voter switching parties or moving.

It's been 4 years since Stephen Colbert created a super PAC — where did all that money go? - Sunlight Foundation Blog

Before taking over as host of "The Late Show," Stephen Colbert was interviewed by Salt and Light — a Catholic media foundation — in anticipation of the arrival of Pope Francis in the United States. The host asked Colbert what he would like to see the pope talk about during his visit to Congress.

Court strikes down Va. congressional map

virginia map with district 3 highlighted

A panel of federal judges in Virginia struck down the state’s congressional map on Tuesday, arguing that the GOP-controlled state legislature’s decision to pack African-Americans into the 3rd Congressional District, which is represented by Democratic Rep. Bobby Scott, was motivated purely by race — a violation of the 14th Amendment.

The Democrats Are Doomed, or How A ‘Big Tent’ Can Be Too Big « OkTrends

tags: politics, party

Time and again in American politics, Republicans have voted as a unit to frustrate our disorganized Democratic majority. No matter what's on the table, a few Democrats will peel away from the party core; meanwhile, all Republicans will somehow manage to stay on-message.

The Political Compass

The Political Compass ™ There's abundant evidence for the need of it. The old one-dimensional categories of 'right' and 'left', established for the seating arrangement of the French National Assembly of 1789, are overly simplistic for today's complex political landscape. For example, who are the 'conservatives' in today's Russia? Are they the unreconstructed Stalinists, or the reformers who have adopted the right-wing views of conservatives like Margaret Thatcher ?

Party Ideology

Mark, Michael, and i went to Anzu again for the final installment of the presidential debates. The debate was typical. What followed was an interesting conversation on the drive home. One question i raised was, what is the fundamental difference between the parties. If you could describe a party in 2-3 words, what would they be?

I think we can all agree on liberal versus conservative. We can also agree on strong versus weak government.

In addition i say democrats strive for equality, and republicans strive for freedom.

What do you think?

Politics & Minutae
