Happy Turkey Day - Religion and Myths

Don't kill any Indians.

The truth about Thanksgiving.

The truth about Thanksgiving debunking. Greatly expanded beginning here.

Coral Ridge Ministries, even without D. James Kennedy still around, incorporates the Pilgrim Thanksgiving in its "divine America" new myths. I should not be annoyed by their false history which becomes close to gospel in rightwing churches. Christianity is always adapting history and myths and incorporating them as something the original people wouldn't recognize.

Some of the real religious history of the United States and the wall of separation between church and state. It greatly annoys me that the DoD's JROTC program is incorporating the new religious right's historical myths in its course curriculum. I am thankful that if they have questions students could find out the truth on the Internet, if they know where to look.

"God, please -- God, please -- God, please -- save America!"

A Thanksgiving Sermon at All Soul's Church by Frank Church. I give thanks for religious liberals.

John Scalzi visits the Creation Science Museum after his readers insisted.

Scalzi's writing is something to be thankful for.

Give thanks, say a prayer for the Native Americans today.
