Wayne Madsens article- Bush's "Christian" Blood Cult at Counterpunch.org raises serious questions that a number of progressive bloggers have been asking all along... how can a so called Christian place more of an emphasis on death than life? How can a so called Christian and his Christian buddies place so much emphasis on the wealthy while burdening the working class when Jesus' whole ministry was to help the poor? If Jesus was his favorite philosopher, Bush certainly has a problem with reading comprehension. Christianity is all about the New Testament and the Gospels. If you meet folks who claim to be Christian, but talk Old Testament and St Paul, chances are you've met a fundamentalist or a Christian cultist. This is not true Christianity. If you challenge them on it, be careful.
During Bush's tenure as Governor of Texas he presided over a record 152 executions, of which 40 took place in 2000, the year he was elected. Fred Allen, an execution chamber "tie down" team member quit in disgust that year. Fellow born again Christian Karla Faye Tucker, a convicted murderer who later led a prison ministry begged for an appeal yet Bush mocked her appeal. In an interview with Talk magazine, Bush imitated Tucker's appeal for him to spare her life - pursing his lips, squinting his eyes, and in a squeaky voice saying, "Please don't kill me." The Pope and the World Council of Churches asked Bush to spare her life. He wouldn't hear of it. Bush reportedly ignored DNA evidence many times and executed mentally retarded people as well. No matter how many times he says he is a Christian and supports a right to life, he is so full of shit, America should be stinking to high heaven. This man is no Christian.
According to the article, Bush's has given the CIA authority to assassinate those deemed a threat to U.S. national interests. Bush has virtually suspended Executive Orders 11905 (Gerald Ford), 12306 (Jimmy Carter), and 12333 (Ronald Reagan) which prohibit the assassination of foreign leaders. Bush's "Christian" blood cult sees no other option than death for those who become his enemies. This doctrine is found no place in Christian theology.
Bush, his advisors and the US military, sat back while the Baghdad and Mosul museums and Baghdad Library were ransacked and destroyed. Cult leaders have historically attempted to destroy history in order to invent their own. The ransacking of Iraq's historical treasures is explainable when one considers what the blood cult Christians really think about Islam.
Billy Graham's son, Franklin Graham [Bush's buddy] has called Islam a "very evil and wicked" religion. He then announced he wanted to go to Iraq and baptize Muslims to his very unchristian form of unchristianity. In the last Gulf War, Graham could not get away with this. Schwarzkopf, stopped Graham's plan to send 30,000 Arabic language Bibles to U.S. troops in Saudi Arabia. No one is stopping him today. In fact, Graham stands to receive US Government funds to proselytize in Iraq!
Vatican sources claim that the Pope is concerned about Bush's blood lust. The article also says that people close to the Pope claim that he suspects Bush may be the anti-Christ of the Book of Revelations. They say that the Pope wishes he were in better health to confront the possibility that Bush is in fact the anti-Christ. If I were the Pope and believed this, I would step down and let someone else battle the anti-Christ. Or maybe he has someone else handling the job. Hope it's not Cardinal Law. It is also revealed that the Pope thinks 9/11 was known in advance by Senior Bush officials. Well I knew that.
If you've been reading the news lately, it's pretty obvious that Bush, Rummy, Ashcroft, et al were looking at ways to torture prisoners without being held accountable. Then you have some Bishops admonishing their flock to vote for pro-life politicians... well here they are... here are your so called pro-life politicians. Religion and politics do not mix. The right wingers sure know how to play up to the religious folks though... they are sure simple minded if they are buying this stuff too. Bush doesn't go to church. Bush doesn't pray for all the innocent people who have died because of his blood lust. Don't tell me he is a Christian.
