    How do you account for the Glen Becks of the world who spout such bigoted nonsense and the David Koreshes and the like?

    Perhaps it boils down to neither Glenn Beck nor David Koresh being a True Scotsman. Or something like that.

    Looks like it's a subject the right wing religious nutjob set doesn't want to discuss.

    Well, you didn't call the thread "Questions for right-wing religious nutjobs," you called it "Questions for the amoral theist." By the looks of things, if answers from theists on this thread count, I'm the only amoral theist around here... (not 🙂 ) And even I haven't answered the OP.

    I imagine self-identifying "moral atheists" are somewhat more common than "amoral theists" who would own up to it. Neat rhetorical spin, though.

    (No more "EDIT" markings from me. Pedantry (and version history) be damned. Snappy answers that I think up after the fact are just going to show up unannounced from now on, if they cross my mind before the "edit" link goes away 🙂 ... grammar and spelling fixes too. You get what RHP will let me give you.)

    The same way I account for the Nancy Pelosi of the world.

    Is that a defense of those two nutjobs? What is the story with Palosi?

    Its Pelosi, not Palosi, she is a left-wing nutjob in the U.S. Congress.

    It seems you are defending both those individuals and probably by extension, Rush Limberger.

    He claims to be the "fusion of entertainment and enlightenment." I think that about explains his whole shtick. What makes you think him "amoral," i.e., not involving questions of right or wrong; without moral quality; neither moral nor immoral;
    having no moral standards, restraints, or principles; unaware of or indifferent to questions of right or wrong, exactly?

    Because he is viewed by the right wing as a moral standard. His puke going over the air actually effects people's thinking just like the idiots who listen to Rush Limberger and ACTUALLY TAKE HIM SERIOUSLY. That is where these kind of people are being amoral or immoral. They are like the leaders of the KKK who spout hate on the radio and when someone gets killed, he just says, I never told anyone to kill.......

    I don't think you've explained your position on what he does/says that makes him amoral/immoral. I can't say I've heard even a sentence from him--- although I've heard an awful lot about him. What don't you like about him?
