American Jesus

Originally written 11/3/04

Welcome to the American Theocracy. When will people realize that there’s a place for religion in government, its called Saudi Arabia. Religious "values" is what decided this election, plain and simple. From gay marriage, abortion, stem cells to censorship, that is what pushed Bush over the edge. Exit polls show Bush got 83 percent of the conservative vote, 58 percent of the protestant vote and 63 percent of the vote from people who attend church more than once a week. That is no coincidence.Keep in mind that no one issue on this planet has caused more wars, turmoil, conflict, division and death than an imaginary man that no one has ever seen, heard or been able to prove even exists.

Well this is a democracy therefore the majority gets its way. I don't like Bush, but since the majority of people voted for him, he's the President. Just because I don't like him doesn't change anything. It could be worse, the majority could have voted for UN-pussy Kerry.

Yes, unfortunately, there are tens (hundreds?) of thousands of single-issue voters out there who will support any war-mongering guy who says he's pro-life.

Joe Wiess said... come every time you mention Christian, you say "Pro white christian man?"

Are you saying that you can't be christian and be black, or mexican, or russian, or a woman?

By the way, if you don't believe in God, how can anything divinely inspire you?
