Forums - Politics Discussion - New Insane Bolivian Leader Carries Cartoonishly Large Bible to Presidential Palace, Declares Witch Hunting as a National Policy

That is most likely a manuscript parchment bible made from animal skins before modern paper and the printing press was invented. These are highly valuable items and used for ceremonial purposes today.

The oldest one is Codex Vaticanus from the 4th century AD

I love how it is ok to mock religious person if they are christian.

Being Christian is fine. Being a Christian fundamentalist fascist out to transform the government into a theocratic one out to persecute the natives cause of witchcraft is insane and should not ever be condoned.

Still making fun of any christian, radical or not, is accepted here and everywhere. Now making fun of Muslim, black heritage religions, etc is usually bad looked and said to be persecutive.

The main stuff the Christian Gospels are against is the stuff she's doing.

So the reason it isn't ok to mock Muslim is because their gospel is being met by them when they do bad stuff?

I think it's okay to make fun of whatever you want but I have a problem when that particular religion is taking over government. Either you believe in secularism or not. I know what I stand for.

I'm ok with mocking anyone for whatever reason.

But more likely than not people mocking christians aren't much ok when you mock other religions.

At least, as far as I see, shes far better than the dictator that was there before her.Not saying she is great and all but, life isnt black and white either.

But yeah, South America has been in shambles for decades now.Hard to fix it, when you have corrupt politicians trying to destroy it left and right....

What are you seeing that indicates that?

People were starving to death with the dictator Evo Morales?Bolivia was never a great country to begin with, but it was dumpster fire when he was leading it?He defrauded the "election" that happened just a few weeks ago?The list goes on and on and on....

This woman is like 1 or 2 weeks in power.At the very least, conidering the horrible history that the country has gone through, give her the benefit of the doubt....

She seems kinda crazy but I think this is still better than if the shithead dictator, disciple of Chavez stayed in power like he wanted to. I'm glad Bolivians got rid of him.

Yeah, I cant even believe we are discussing this....

Why people never complained about Morales, when he was a sshit dictator, destroyer of a nation, but complain about this basically unknown entity, when she is 1 week in?It even feels like communism and socialism didnt kill as much as other shit dictatiorships through history....

There's always weird pockets of the world moving backward. The world is generally moving forward, though.

Pockets? Brazil is a pocket? Ot the US? And what about all the extreme right polititians gaining popularity and power in Europe?

This is far worse than a pocket.

Right wing politicians getting voted into office is a sign that not all is lost, it's about time people pushed back on the SJW cancer that is the modern left.

That's not true at all. Under Evo Morales the economy grew 40%. Poverty went from 50%+ to at about 30%. This is just straight up misinformation Nautilus, i'm sorry. He eliminated illiteracy, gave power to the indigenous, which is 2/3 of the country. Before Morales, imagine a country so dominated by US interests, that the previous president couldn't even speak Spanish properly. He couldn't hide his heavily north American accent.

That woman is a disaster, and she already is presiding over a number of horrors. For one, former evo aligned politicians are getting dragged into the streets and beaten and shaven. Their houses being ransacked. She gave the police immunity for shooting and possibly killing protesters. This is a dark dark dark turn for the worse.

Right wing politicians are fine. People who claim that homosexuality can be cured are not. Holocaust deniers are not. Racists who blame immigrants for unemployment and low wages, then proceed to bring 19000 moroccans to work in the next strawberry campaign in andalusia so the rich can get richer by offering even lower wages, like VOX has supported in JEMC's country (among other things), are not.



Superstition is a hell of a drug.
