As Ye Reap so Shall Ye Sow…..

…that biblical enough for ya? Me? I think people who believe in ‘God’ are nuts….sue me. I also think much of what the good Reverend, seriously, was right on target. He has spoken a lot of truth. I object, quite a bit, to the emphasis on a candidate’s religion, his church the whole stupid, yes stupid, ball of wax as something by which we ‘know’ the candidate. It’s all Kabuki…all of it. And it, like it’s vile cousin ID politics, serves the forces of repression and fascism. The monkeys, when divided into little groups, are much easier to handle than when they are united to fight a predator, fascist capitalism, or find food or community. By my views the Reverend has every right, indeed by his moral code he is required, to speak out. Obama, for all his dumb talk about uniting, monkeys and leopards do not unite except in the leopard’s stomach, doesn’t seem to grasp the fact that his pious churchiness is divisive in and of self. And, in act that really indicates his hubris or stupidity you pick it, has taken no step to define himself in ways that would have insulated him from the wave of shit that’s gonna hit him if he is the nominee, an unlikely prospect at this point…think SuperDelegates, he’s painted himself into a box by engaging with the nattering negaters of the Reich on their terms. Religious ones which, last I looked, are not to be part of governing in this nation except to keep religion and government separate. Rather than the long tendentious speech he gave yesterday I would’ve he’d said:

‘My religion, since it does not bear on my policies or seeking office, is my business. The rest of you can butt out.’

By moving the discussion onto religious terrain he exposes himself to the endless memes created by the evangelical right about how wrong he, a liberal, is for America. How his strange and weird religion will be a danger to the good, fat burgers asleep in their Laz-E-Boys while NFL Football drones on the TeeBee in the ‘family room’.

Until we start to talk about reality not make-believe we will not escape the tentacles of the religiously deluded. I’d say now would be a good time to revisit the Founders concepts regarding church and state.

I concur with you strictly in your opinion of the comparative merits of atheism and demonism, and really see nothing but the latter in the being worshipped by many who think themselves Christians. -Thomas Jefferson, letter to Richard Price, Jan. 8, 1789 (Richard Price had written to TJ on Oct. 26. about the harm done by religion and wrote “Would not Society be better without Such religions? Is Atheism less pernicious than Demonism?”)

and…..

Believing with you that religion is a matter which lies solely between man and his God, that he owes account to none other for his faith or his worship, that the legislative powers of government reach actions only, and not opinions, I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should ‘make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,’ thus building a wall of separation between church and State. -Thomas Jefferson, letter to Danbury Baptist Association, CT., Jan. 1, 1802

That last one… Good enough for me. A. Citizen Peace, Health and Prosperity for Everyone.

  1. A man’s theology tells practically everything important about him. That is why Barack Obama would be in so much trouble if a spotlight was shined on the non-racial aspect of his THEOLOGY. See:

    Christian prophet, no politician would survive under the spotlight. It is about public perception.

    Do you really think a christian can be a christian and vote for g.w.bush the second time and be called a christian.

    He lied to us to get us in a war with a country that had no terrorist. He has murdered millions of innocent civilians in the name of OIL/Profit. He has decieved, coveted, decieved, coveted, murdered, loves money over men,

    Let me lay it out for you that no politician is christian.

    The Bible states that a Tree is Known by it’s fruit. Have you, as a “Christian” Let your fruit fall from your tree, roll down the hill and rot By Voting for non christian actions in Government?

    Lets see …

    Below are 4 Commandments of the 10 Commandments that todays Politicians are headlong into. They are listed as follows:

    1.Thou shalt not bear false witness.

    We all know that we were lied to for justification to enter into an illegal war and have killed millions of innocent people in the name of a “war on terror”. which brings us to Number 2.

    2. Thou shalt not murder.

    The Crimes of a few have escilated into a murderous adventure of our political establishment. and they keep murdering and trying to find new ways to expand the murder by violating number 1 reason on a continous basis.
    If they lied before and have not stopped, what would make you believe them about IRAN?

    3. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s house.

    We all already know that the OIL in the middle east is the purpose of the expansion of the war to IRAQ and now they want IRANs OIL. This is a direct violation of the number 3 listed commandment. and it also gives the pretext of entering into the 4th reason.

    4.Thou shalt not steal.

    Coveting the “oil” is what ultimately lead to the down right theft of that countries OIL. and now they are after IRANS,Again breaking the above 3 listed Commandments.

    HOW can YOU, as a Christian support any PRO WAR Candidate in the U.S as it now stands?
