  1. Great essay. Having had a plethora of heart attacks and spending many weeks in the hospitals (Mary Greeley in Ames is the BEST, and University of Iowa Hospitals in Iowa City the worst) I finally had no choice but to take care of myself, and as Professor Paul Pearson pontificated passionately pursue a different course and “get back to writing), I had 90% of my prostate removed and took Furosemide (Lasix) to shed tons of “water” drowning my too-big of a body and lost weight, re-energized my will and now write too much (my blog comes first with scathing attacks on religion (especially white Christian evangelicals who, in the early twentieth century Germany made up the bulk of Hitler’s “very fine people” (Lutheran NAZIs, calling themselves “storm troopers of Jesus Christ.”: Landeskirchen, led by Ludwig Mueller; Doris L. Bergen, Twisted Cross: The German Christian Movement in the Third Reich (Chapel Hill, NC: University of North Carolina Press, 1996), 4.) giving the nod to Trumpelthinskin’s supporters (Poor Boys, American NAZIs, KKK, and other fringe groups wanting the Orange Menace to be Dictator for Life) but with joy continue to do so. Cf. https://classroom.synonym.com/the-lutheran-church-during-wwii-12086103.html; https://www.facinghistory.org/holocaust-and-human-behavior/chapter-5/protestant-churches-and-nazi-state; and, http://www.oocities.org/heartland/7547/hitler.html among other essays.

    Von den Jüden und iren Lügen; in modern spelling Von den Juden und ihren Lügen (“On the Jews and Their Lies”) a 65,000 word hate message by Martin Luther was the bible for NAZIs and modern days Jew-hating Trump supporters and assassins (e.g. Robert D. Bowers; https://search.yahoo.com/search?p=americans+who+killed+jews+today&fr=yset_widemail_chr_win&type=default) while claiming without evidence that Jews “want their land and job” (a common theme in “Stormfront” (e.g. https://www.stormfront.org/forum/t514183/ and other Fake News proliferating on the internet and repeated on Fox News). Unfortunately this does not stop as hate is a growing fungus among us. It takes serious scholars to refute this nonsense, along with such absurdities as the Flat Earth Society and “biblical” experts claiming the planet and universe is only 6000 years old and must be ruled over by white males. Fortunately, there is Aron Ra of American Atheists and his sterling arguments on YouTube (ref. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL126AFB53A6F002CC, etc.).
