Fuck Your God

"Hey, you have your religion in my politics" "Hey, you have your politics in my religion" Two tastes that could be great, just NOT together. Let's discuss how religious zealots are ruining the spirit of the United States and trampling your rights for the sake of their own god.

"Chuck" currently resides in the Uptown neighborhood of Chicago. While he finds organized religion and their fanatics to be morally bankrupt and power hungry he also believes in the Constitution and our Bill of Rights which allow all of us to believe in any god we choose and the ability to worship in any manner our selves feel to be correct and good and right. So long as we respect others' rights to do so as well. The latter concept being foreign to most religious folk.

American Standards??

Today, we are in a climate of meanness. It is the Republicans fighting the Democrats with no holds barred. All bets are off. Unfortunately, it is the American People who are losing. By now, I’m sure, you’ve all heard of the remarks by Karl Rove about the Democrat’s response to September 11th. As much as they are untrue statements, they are, nonetheless, mean spirited and divisive. Meant to further the wedge between the two parties and cause animosity toward the Democrats. I would urge each of you to read the entire article from MSN and decide for yourself. There was then this quote by a Ken Mehlman:

MSN June 24, 2005
“I think what Karl Rove said is accurate and reflects a big difference between the two parties,” added Republican Party Chairman Ken Mehlman.

They all seem to be on the same page of political division. It’s a rather curious thing to see, especially in light of this from Salon dated 1999, before GW was appointed king. This from George:

Salon, May 6, 1999
“Second, I showed the people of Texas that I'm a uniter, not a divider. I refuse to play the politics of putting people into groups and pitting one group against another.” - G. W. Bush

Has our empassioned leader decided to change his tune once getting into office? Let’s, once again turn to the Bible, GW’s self proclaimed standard, and see how he stands up. Read this one about division.

“I appeal to you, brothers, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another so that there may be no divisions among you..”
Paul to the Corinthians I Corinthians 01:10

Isn’t this GW’s standard? Is he living up to this by letting Karl Rove and Dick Cheney discredit the Democrats with lies? By grouping people up and lying about them? This causes division among the parties. Specific example is the nomination of Bolton to the UN. GW will not give over records so that there can be harmony in the government, and then says that the Democrats are stonewalling. This is divisive AND untrue.
Looks to me like GW really isn’t holding water with his arguments. Let’s look at this one about lying.

“Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to his neighbor, for we are all members of one body.”
Ephesians 04:25

What is rather amazing to me is how all those conservatives who voted for him based on his moral standing on policy continue to stand on his side. His hypocrisy is amazing. And the blindness of the American morality is equally so. If this is the result of a church upbringing, why would anyone bring up children in ANY church? What happened to the golden rule of treating others as you would want to be treated? What happened to “loving one another” and harmony? Have these all gone out the window to be replaced with greed and deceipt? It looks as though they have in the Republican controlled environment we are currently experiencing. This is to ALL our shame. We are sitting idly by while treason is being commited against our constitution and citizens. We are accepting an hostile take over of our rights and our government. More importantly, we are permitting that same take over of our morals by a group claiming, in word only, morality. Theirs is a god of greed, power, and corruption. A ruthless atrocity against American values and what our forefathers fought to avoid. Values our Constitution and Bill of Rights were written to protect. Ours is becoming an American Corporation. Strictly for the profit of the white christian right. A white christian right that is dragging the name of religion through the mud and that very same religion is assisting.

So, keep watching for more division from the right and the White House while keeping the Salon article in mind. And if you need more proof that GW is a liar to the American People and trashing YOUR COUNTRY, read this.

Have a great weekend,
