Enough Already

Bush still has the majority of his base with him, his war base. Ironically they are also his Christian base. Christians for war. Christians for invasion of sovereign countries. Christians for flag draped coffins. You go Christian cheerleaders!

Thirty five soldiers have been killed this month alone. Today is only the 12th of April. This doesn’t seem to bother the Christian cheerleaders. What they are concerned about is something different. The Christians for war are trying to rev up a War on Easter and a War on Christians. Jeezz, how many wars will it take to make them happy? Wasn’t the War on Christmas enough for them? They like these wars for some reason and they like to fight about them, if only they could find someone to fight with. See that’s the safe part, it’s easy to declare that someone is at war with you if there’s no need for actual personal involvement like fighting and dying. They enjoy being involved in these pretend wars and acting like the victim but oh don’t ask them to fight the kind of wars that bush likes to start. They’ll just stay home and cheer for the home team.

I have a suggestion for these war loving Christians. Either sign up and fight in the real war or shut the hell up. You whimper and whine because everyone in the freakin’ world doesn’t have a religious symbol, with your personal Christian stamp of approval stamped on it, stuck in some damn prominent spot of their homes or lawns or cars or wherever the hell else. While you are having your Christian hissy fit, there are people with lives and hearts being torn all to hell because a member of their family has been killed in your war president’s real war. That is the result when people are involved in real war. That’s what it looks like. It doesn’t look like mangers or crosses or some kind of symbol, it looks like real pain and real end of life.

Please just stop this bullshit. Nobody has time to screw with you war-loving, but non-fighting, people right now. While you are rolling around in you own self inflicted pity in the safety of your own little group of self righteous peers, there are real things that are so much more important than your insane, and it seems never ending, complaints. The only fight you are truly involved in is your daily battle against facing reality.

Amen! The extremists think they're helping to bring about Armageddon sooner. I think their egos have grown too large. What makes them think they can manipulate God and micro-manage events according to their timetable?

Good morning, PoP. Will you let me know when you get really mad? :-) I agree this group is very unbecoming and are fueled by the American Ayatollahs, Pat Robertsons and James Dobsons of this world. Have you read or seen critiques of Kevin Phillip's "Theocracy." A very good read on the American Right.

excellent post! I agree with everything you've said. Let's face it...if Jesus comes back...he's gonna puke when he sees what this group has wrought in his name.

eprof, I read Phillips last book and it was excellent. I definitely will be getting this new book as well.

Well written POP. I think that we need more anger from our side so I love reading rants like this. I’m sooooo tired of hypocrisy, from the Religious Right. What a bunch of hateful people they are, and their hatred is in turn making me hate them.

The people who “love America” the most are putting our country in more and more jeopardy. Those with the most “family values” are the divorced, child molesting, wife-cheaters. Those who are pro-life are in total support of this war. Those from the religion that bases much of it’s philosophy on acceptance and lack of judgment are the ones who are most un-accepting and judgmental.

My philosophy is that intolerance of those who are intolerant is not in and of itself, hypocrisy. Try fitting that on a bumper sticker.

First I hope today is a better day than yesterday for you and Mr. PoP.

Second, Great post! The only thing I disagree with is
"shut the hell up" phrase.

It should read

SHUT THE HELL UP YOU INTOLERANT...&%$^@!!...*&%#$&

Well you get the point.

PoP,
I have to agree with EProf, now tell us what you really think. All joking aside, well maybe not all of it, there's a lot more crusade in the war on terra than most of the fervents will admit. I'll betcha that if the enemy had little yellow skin or little white skin, the oublic support and chest beating would be more a whisper than a shout. And I know that where you are, you can't throw a rock and miss a Southern Baptist church. Give 'em hell.

I would toss these riechwingers another bone to chew on. Pony up or get off the argument circut is okay, but hey how about let's get them to clean up their own mess while we area at it. We need a serous cleaing before the Whitehouse is livable again. The cockaroaches have seriously infested it and the reichwingers should be held accountable for letting them in and leaving the bread crumbs out to attract more.

Somebody once said "If it wasn't for the Christians we'd know God".

I've come to realize that most religions are filled with hypocrites. Except maybe Buddhists. They take the peace thing seriously.

I think that we should dispense with the "War" bullshit. For supposedly peace-loving people, we Americans declare war a lot - and on a lot of different things. Drugs, Poverty, Terrorism - social ills that don't respond well (or at all) to military force.

Bill O'Blarney was going off because someone made a worker remove a bunny from their work station. I wonder if anyone's told Bill that bunnies are pagan fertiity symbols? Maybe Falafel Boy could use a few of those.

Btw, off topic - how does one go about posting a picture on Blogger? I've followedthe instructions and tried 3 times so far to post a pic to my blog, and it just isn't working.

OOOOeeee! Way to go POP! As cranky as the religious right are, I think it's time to put a little caster oil in their communion cup. Up tight. BTW, a friend of mine is a Jehova (sp?) Witness and they are not happy with Bush at all, so there's one group at least.

If you go to the Snopes urban legend site http://snopes.com/politics/bush/bush.asp

you'll see some of the evangelical folklore around the W. It's truly strange stuff. Basically, they say he's a believer like us so it doesn't matter if he's wrong. A bit of a problem if he is consistently wrong.

It's so ironic that Bush ran on a platform of campassionate conservatism, when he has shown neither compassion nor fiscally conservative values. He was supposed to be the President who brought the two parties together, the one who would bridge the gap. Even then the Evilgelicals were pulling the strings and filling the war chests.

They are not real Christians. They are Pseudo-Christians

Calling them Christians is an insult to real Christians.

PoP, You might want to take a close look at FSMism.

If you are not familiar with it, here's a link:

It takes them Christians to another level for sure.

Amen. We didn't want this war, and if they want to bitch and moan, they can leave us out of the equasion. They can either enlist or go after the handful of "people" (people is too loose a term, should be cyborgs or Bushtards) who started the whole thing.

Hope you have a happy Easter, Patricia.

Your last paragraph says it all for me.

So many self righteous smug in their delusions of victimhood fucktards working so very very hard to push their view of reality onto the rest of us.

Their war against themselves is their paranoia surfacing. It's not a war against Christians! It's an archaeological find that proves beyond a reasonable shadow of a doubt the Bible is as bogus as Bush's reason to go to war. They have a problem.

The media has agreed to supress the information, the archaeological find. We can guess the media moguls are born again, (reformed acid heads) themselves or they think it will have an adverse effect on something they are for like truth, justice and the American way to lie. It's not working. To date there are over 42 million Americans that agree and multiples more world wide.

In spite of the media the world is finding out through the Internet at http://www.hoax-buster.org

You may have noticed that the moral leaders like Robertson, Falwell and theirs are missing from those TV magazines like "Hardball" where Chris Matthews himself is in a state of disaray over it. Watch how he tip toes around morality issues any more. And you haven't heard Mr Bush calling on the almighty lately either have you? They're all waiting for the other shoe to fall. What that will be remains to be seen.

The Bible being proved bogus takes a little getting used to. We can expect they are getting used to it.

It's very sad to have religions (two biggies these days) taking so much human energy and leading to so much suffering.

Imagine there's no religion.
