The American Worship of Empire

My dear activist friend Edward Dunphy likes to use the expression ‘The Christian Right is NEITHER” whenever he debates those folks. Amazing, how we are living in a time when, as with the Inquisition, God is placed on a pedestal of violence and terror…. all in the name of Peace! Let me also say that this type of mindset transcends politics. After all, we know about the one party that carries Jesus around in its pocket like some good luck charm. The Republicans who subscribe to Christianity actually think that the man called the Prince of Peace would condone all that they stand for. Duh, like the worship of greed at the expense of 99.5% of us. Yet, when it comes to other foreign policy issues, both of those political parties think they own the cross and the memory of the Christ. Mr. Obama and his party of hypocrites keep on funding the Military Industrial Complex to the tune of over 50% of our federal tax dollars. Walking lockstep with the Republicans, they continue to maintain over 800 bases worldwide, with over hundreds of thousands of our young military personnel occupying two countries that we have no right being in. Now, when Mr. Obama and his other Christian cohorts leave church each Sunday, do they really think that Jesus would agree with the savage drone attacks? I guess that is what the media likes to call bipartisanship.
