War is not my God's will.
My Response To Sarah Palin's God Of Death
Hearing Sarah Palin's words that the Iraqi war was her Gods Plan send shivers down my spine and I immediately thought of the words of Condoleezza Rice, the US Secretary of State when she was asked in August of 2006 why America will not intervene to stop Israel from slaughtering the people of Lebanon and Palestine, Condi's words were chilling; her response was, “What we’re seeing here is the … birth pangs of a new Middle East. ”
How wonderful! When more than fifteen hundred Lebanese people are slaughtered in cold-blood, and another million forced to flee from their homes while their homes and businesses and everything that they care about and is important for them to survive is savagely and brutally destroyed by Israel (with US-supplied arms and ammunitions and handouts), the person who is the face of America in diplomatic circles audaciously says it is the ‘birth-pang’ of a ‘new’ Middle East. What does one know about birth pangs when one never became a mother and has been using condoms as a fornicator all her adult life? So, when Madam Condi Rice talks about birth pangs of a ‘new’ Middle East, I don’t know what would be more appropriate: blame her for superficial knowledge or monumental hypocrisy.
[hANOVER fIST notes: Kinda looks STILLBORN to me...]
Sarah Palin has shown the same monumental hypocrisy times a thousand; as a mother of five, I wonder how she would feel if she was in the shoes of an Iraqi mother who had just lost her husband and her house; her sons are nowhere to be seen, and her daughters had to turn to prostitution (something almost unheard of in the Islamic world) just to survive, all because the pResident of the world's most powerful country claimed that he heard the voice of his God to start a war against a small country and a poor people who in a thousand years could have never threatened him.
Sarah Palin tells her Church audience that the war in Iraq is God's will:
I cannot come to grips with the premise that God got America into this mess -- that God is the shadowy figure behind the throne, whispering into Bush's ear to dishonor a once great nation, disgrace its armed forces and destroy well over 1,500,000 million innocent human beings. Only a tyrant storms in and out of the affairs of common men, robs them of their way of life, of hope, of free thought -- and randomly and maliciously tortures, even slaughters, those who dare oppose him. Only a tyrant who, as Aristotle wisely noted, "must put on the appearance of uncommon devotion to religion." Aristotle also pointed out that "Subjects are less apprehensive of illegal treatment from a ruler whom they consider god-fearing and pious..."
It is a tragedy of staggering proportions that American Christians are so delusional that ever-widening congregational circles are little more than "subjects" of George Bush and his Bible-thumping, rabid, right-wing administration. Christians accept through blind faith that God is the architect of Bush's personal "war on terror and evildoers. " Why else would they remain deathly silent in the face of everything they know for a fact is abhorrent to both their Creator (God) and their Savior (Jesus)? Where is the righteous outcry against preemptive attacks on innocent men, women and children at home and abroad? Where is the Christian outpouring of compassion, mercy -- agape love? Who is caring for the poor, the hungry, the homeless, the wounded, the elderly? Who is burying the dead?
Is there not one Christian who will dare to point out that, in his foolish crusade to rid the world of his perceived enemy is nothing more then a lie but that his only aim is to control the worlds resources?
Just one Christian.
Just one with the courage to say the unspeakable -- that George Bush has no knowledge of objectivity nor values...that he likely is unable to even pronounce "metaphysics," let alone understand its spiritual implications, and is unable to form a philosophical concept of a true God.
Is there not even one Christian who misses God and His blessed influence in everything around us -- the poetry of life, the music, the sun-lit laughter inspired by goodness and mercy -- the sheer joy of reaching out to help those in need -- the most vulnerable among us?
The silence of the lambs is inexplicable. Apparently no longer able to discern who, or even where, God is, Christians stand mute before angry and power-mad religious right-wing evangelicals, -- like most out-of-control zealots -- are quite mad. Although they tend to go underground just prior to an election, they are busy behind the scenes in a decades-long, non-stop crusade to gain control of the machinations of government. If Christians are not trembling at the holy war launched against Americans for control of their faith, their lives and their country -- they should be.
This creature whom Bush calls god and is obsessed with forcing upon the rest of the world is no friend of mine -- or yours, either. Bush and his warmongers wallow with their god in the blood of the Old Testament. So be it. If they refuse to listen to the admonishments of Jesus Christ, maybe the Old Testament prophet Isaiah can get their attention, for when Isaiah lashed out at the Kings of Judah, he could well have been speaking directly to the Bush cabal and, sadly, to far too many of us:
"...your hands are those of murderers and your fingers are filthy with sin. You lie and grumble and oppose the good...You spend your time and energy in spinning evil plans which end up in deadly actions. You cheat and shortchange everyone. Everything you do is filled with sin; violence is your trademark. Your feet run to do evil and rush to murder; your thoughts are only of sinning, and wherever you go you leave behind a trail of misery and death. You don't know what true peace is, nor what it means to be just and good; you continually do wrong and those who follow you won't experience any peace either."
It is time we stopped the madness -- the wanton killing of innocent men, women and children in third world countries and the open assault on Americas own citizens. Bush and his Religious Right brigades have come for the elderly, the poor, the children, the citizens born in other lands, and are now looking at Americas youth. Who among you will be next -- who among you will dare to speak out...?
