When Fanatics Trump Facts You Get American Religion

Sure we know doll, and you just happen to be another Christian Evangelical Fundamentalist too....funny how that is working with the implementation of FASCISM (Dominionism) Worldwide ....

In Canada we have our own little fundamentalist, Stephen Harper - Christian Evangelical fascist , who just allocated $450 MILLION dollars of Canadian taxpayers money (that should have been refunded to Canada) into a SLUSH FUND, a personal SLUSH fund for George W. Bush. A pure organized crime SHAKE DOWN of a country by a criminal president, complicit with a criminal Prime Minister. The infamous Softwood Lumber deal.

Well Quebec was bought off during the Mulroney sell out of Canada too, funny how that works.

And if I hear one more person drag out Colin Powell's name as a possible "bridge" I'll hurl. The guy is a liar, an inclement liar - a front man for organized crime.
While George plays out his bald fetish the beat goes on...yada, yada, yada...

Dangerous Religion
George W. Bush's theology of empire.

Religion is the most dangerous energy source known to humankind. The moment a person (or government or religion or organization) is convinced that God is either ordering or sanctioning a cause or project, anything goes. The history, worldwide, of religion-fueled hate, killing, and oppression is staggering. —Eugene Peterson (from the introduction to the book of Amos in the Bible paraphrase The Message)

William Kristol, editor of the influential Weekly Standard, admits the aspiration to empire. "If people want to say we're an imperial power, fine," Kristol wrote. Kristol is chair of the Project for the New American Century, a group of conservative political figures that began in 1997 to chart a much more aggressive American foreign policy (see Project for a New American Empire). The Project's papers lay out the vision of an "American peace" based on "unquestioned U.S. military pre-eminence." These imperial visionaries write, "America's grand strategy should aim to preserve and extend this advantageous position as far into the future as possible." It is imperative, in their view, for the United States to "accept responsibility for America's unique role in preserving and extending an international order friendly to our security, our prosperity, and our principles." That, indeed, is empire.

There is nothing secret about all this; on the contrary, the views and plans of these powerful men have been quite open. These are Far Right American political leaders and commentators who ascended to governing power and, after the trauma of Sept. 11, 2001, have been emboldened to carry out their agenda. ...
To this aggressive extension of American power in the world, President George W. Bush adds God—and that changes the picture dramatically. It's one thing for a nation to assert its raw dominance in the world; it's quite another to suggest, as this president does, that the success of American military and foreign policy is connected to a religiously inspired "mission," and even that his presidency may be a divine appointment for a time such as this.
Theologian Martin Marty voices the concern of many when he says, "The problem isn't with Bush's sincerity, but with his evident conviction that he's doing God's will." As Christianity Today put it, "Some worry that Bush is confusing genuine faith with national ideology." The president's faith, wrote Klein, "does not give him pause or force him to reflect. It is a source of comfort and strength but not of wisdom."...

The Bush theology deserves to be examined on biblical grounds. Is it really Christian, or merely American? Does it take a global view of God's world or just assert American nationalism in the latest update of "manifest destiny"? How does the rest of the world—and, more important, the rest of the church worldwide—view America's imperial ambitions?
Given that mr. Bush's "religion" has to date promoted "shock and awe," the murder of Saddam Hussein and his sons, complete with the public showing of photographs of his sons' badly mutliated bodies... a group of barbarians showing off a murderous conquest - one wonders if his religion has any validity at all. The invasion of Iraq was illegal, immoral and is, in and of itself, a war crime.

mr. bush repeatedly confuses himself with God, and the country of the United States with the accountablility due his father. I mean what sort of narcissistic psychopath does it take to extract an entire country out of the world court to prevent the prosecution of one's father and his pack of war criminals? (THAT is some ego folks.) Let us hold this core group of false prophets and pimps of propaganda accountable - before GOD And country.
