I wouldn’t worry too much about that old buzzard anymore. He’s
been saying the most outrageous things for decades and I think
he is even an embarassment to this adminstration. Robertson
himself will only be around for a limited time and I see encouraging
signs everywhere that the radical christian right agenda is waning
in this country. I even think our resident “fundie” who goes by the
username of, “The Champion” sees this, though he may be reluctant to admit it. Pendulums have always swung back and
forth throughought history and I think the Christian has pretty
much reached the apex of their power and influence, it’s all down
hill from here, but I fully expect some tough conflicts before they
are rendered relatively impotent. A cornered animal fights the hardest knowing that it’s doom is nigh. But in their over-confidence
they have pushed too hard and I think the American people are
becoming tired of the bullying extremes from them and are pushing
I find it rather amusing that these idiots fail to learn from history
and human folly in general. Had it not been for hitler’s over-
confidence and meddling (and that of other arrogant nazis
leaders like goering) Germany may have very well defeated
Britain and then turned the full might of her formidable war
machine against Russia. If the Russia would have then fallen,
the USA and rest of the world would have been in a dire predictment indeed. Also, many serial killers only get caught after
their over-confidence and “superiority complexes” allow them to
make a fatal blunder. Truly, “evil” is often it’s own worst enemy.
These people would do well to consider following words of Gen.
“For over a thousand years Roman conquerors returning from
the wars enjoyed the honor of triumph, a tumultuous parade.
In the procession came trumpets and strange animals from
conquered territories,together with carts laden with treasure
and captured armaments. The conquerors rode in a triumphal
chariot or rode the trace horses. A slave stood behind the
conquer holding a golden crown and whispering in his ear a
warning: that all glory is fleeting”.
The Christian right has the bush adminstration to blame for much
of this and yet, many still consider him a hero. It’s hardly been a
year since all the great conservative/christian right celebrations
and talk of “mandates” filled the air. Where are they now???
When it comes to mainstream Judeo-Christian beliefs, I am wholly atheistic. You claim to be a methodist, so I probably wouldn’t
agree with many of your views regarding many things. Nevertheless I have no problem with moderate/liberal Christians
or other religious. I am very glad to have you and all those like you
on “our” side.
