A Christian Government??

“When the Christian majority takes over this country, there will be no satanic churches, no more free distribution of pornography, no more talk of rights for homosexuals. After the Christian majority takes control, pluralism will be seen as immoral and evil and the state will not permit anybody the right to practice evil.”
Gary Potter, Catholics for Christian Political Action.  Obviously this dude wants to take over America…Catholics have a really poor record of governing people…think burning of non-existent witches and the Inquisitions.

“I don’t know that atheists should be considered citizens, nor should they be considered patriots. This is one nation under God.”  George Bush Sr., former President of the United StatesHey there’s at least 43 million of us who do not share your view, and we are more tolerant than Christians.

“The feminist agenda is not about equal rights for women. It is about a socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism, and become lesbians.”
Pat Robertson, Christian CoalitionA proponent of a theocratic government, and obviously not one advocating equal treatment under the law.

“Your tax dollars are being used to pay for grade-school classes that teach our children that cannibalism, wife-swapping and murder of infants and the elderly are acceptable behavior.”
Jesse Helms, former senator NC.  Wow…I’m kinda glad he passed on. That attitude is evil.

“The Bible is the inerrant …word of the living God. It is absolutely infallible, without error  in all matters pertaining to faith and practice, as well as in areas such as geography, science, history, etc.”
Jerry Falwell, former Televangelist.  I might add that he also believes America should be a theocracy.

“God told me to strike at al Qaida and I struck them, and then he instructed me to strike at Saddam, which I did, and now I am determined to solve the problem in the Middle East. If you help me I will act, and if not, the elections will come and I will have to focus on them.
George W. Bush, former (thank goodness) President of the United States. Where were we when ol’ G.W. was being instructed by God??

“Yes, religion and politics do mix. America is a nation based on biblical principles. Christian values dominate our government. The test of those values is the Bible. Politicians who do not use the bible to guide their public and private lives do not belong in office.”
Beverly LaHaye, Concerned Women for America.  Wife of Tim LaHaye co-author of the “Left Behind’ religious book series, and evangelical minister.

Do we really want the Christian Right taking over our government and telling us how to live?  How serious are we about allowing government to peek inside our minds and bedrooms, tell us what we believe, etc. I think I would commit suicide rather than live under the control of religion, Christian or Muslim.  Remember the book 1984 we all had to read in High School…multiply that by a factor of 10.

One Response to A Christian Government??

    The far right is dangerous and we loose more and more freedoms to these fanatics everyday. Organized religion has corrupted the world since its inception. Makes no matter if fundamentalist Christen or Islamic Extremist, they both are dangerous. Both train to dominate others and enforce a slanted view of life on those who do not live as they do, or should I say live as they speak for many talk out both sides of their mouths.
