Anna Jane Joyner is evangelical royalty: Her father, Rick Joyner, founded a South Carolina-based megachurch with 1,000 congregations in 59 countries. But Anna Jane had a political come-to-Jesus moment while at UNC, where she embraced progressive politics. Today, at 29, she's the millennial face of a growing national movement that seeks to convince America's 80 million evangelicals that biblical tenets are compatible with environmentalism. "There's a huge host of faith communities who get it theologically, who even get the science piece of it," Joyner says. "But they're not mobilized in taking action." +The Daily Climate

Let Speaker Boehner and the rest of the Republican party know that racism will not be tolerated in the US Congress.

With the convening of the next Congress only days away, Speaker Boehner and the House GOP must repudiate white supremacy by taking immediate action to strip Scalise of his leadership position. 

When the story broke, Scalise tried to justify his actions and claim he didn’t know the European-American Unity and Rights Organization’s (EURO) hateful purpose. His explanations are not credible. It was widely reported that the conference was so upsetting that a minor league baseball team moved to another hotel. And considering David Duke’s notoriety and legacy, it’s difficult to believe that anyone — especially in Louisiana — would not recognize his name or affiliations.

In a recent interview, Duke claims that in addition to the conference he and Scalise have met on several occasions. Duke gives Scalise a glowing endorsement calling him “a fine family man and a good person."  Scalise has even been known to describe himself as “David Duke without the baggage.” In a 1999 interview with Roll Call, Scalise brags that he and Duke share similar conservative views and he argues that he is a better, more-electable candidate.

Scalise’s speech to EURO was about supposed corruption within the Housing and Urban Development Fund, implying the program constitutes, “an apparent giveaway to a selective group based on race.” This attack on a government program to help the poor is the same type of racially-divisive rhetoric — though in this case less coded — which far too many in Boehner’s Republican caucus use to rally support.

Why hasn’t Speaker Boehner taken action? Perhaps it’s because David Duke issued him a warning that if Republicans rebuke Scalise “then a lot of them better be looking over their shoulders,” essentially threatening to name other politicians with whom he has met. As Speaker, John Boehner has consistently bowed to pressure from the ultra-conservatives on his side of the aisle.

As Republicans take control of both houses and Congress on Tuesday, Speaker Boehner and the GOP have an important choice to make: they can disavow white supremacy, strip Steve Scalise of his leadership role and stand up to David Duke; or they can leave Scalise in power and confirm that Republicans are unwilling to confront racism in their own party.

Demand Speaker Boehner stand up to hate in the GOP!

A brilliant, beautiful paean to the optimism of my friend, Ray Bradbury, who did dystopias very well, but who actually believed in us and in our potential to be better than we are.  Read this. It's brief. And Ray would tell you that it is time to rebel against the merchants of hopelessness and fear.

Oh, to see WHY so many directors, producers and authors are churning out lazy, cliched, cookie cutter dystopias, see my explanation here. Once you understand their reason, you may despise them even more than the fear merchants at Fox:
