Try War on Insanity

The Jesusfreaks had a little pow-wow recently. Everybody who is anybody in the movement towards a theocratic dictatorship was there. Mista MC Joe Scarborough presided over the ceremony. About Tom DeLay he says:

"I believe the most damaging thing Tom DeLay has done in his life is take his faith seriously in the public office, which made him a target of all those who despise the goals of Christ,"
Strange. Eight years of Catholic school and I don't remember anything in the Gospels about Christ specifying bribery, corruption, slavery and forced abortions among his goals. Did Jesus even play golf?

Do you know what these people would call Jesus if he actually came back tomorrow like they think he's going to? A dirty, peacenik, America-hating liberal hippy. Peace? Love your neighbor? Turn the other cheek? Blessed are the meek? Judge not, lest ye be judged? Sounds like hippy-talk to me.
At one point, speaker Herb Titus held up a copy of Kevin Phillips' "American Theocracy," offering it as evidence of the putative war on Christians. It was an audacious move, given that Sara Diamond, the preeminent scholar of the Christian right, reported in a 1998 book that Titus was forced to resign his post as dean of the law school at Pat Robertson's Regent University because he refused to renounce Christian Reconstructionism. Christian Reconstructionism is a theocratic sect that advocates the replacement of civil law with biblical law, including the execution of homosexuals, apostates and women who are unchaste before marriage.
The latter rule is my favorite. See, that way when a hypocritical religofascist has one of his many sexual dalliances, after he "finishes up" he would be required by law to murder her with his bare hands. Hey, she's not a virgin, she's gotta go. No need for birth control that way, which is no doubt forbidden in any case. And by the way, if Pat Robertson fires you because you're too much of a religious nut, holy shit! We're talking bombing clinics and drowning-your-children-in-the-name-of-Jesus wacko.
"A spiritual invasion is taking place," Parsley roared to the packed banquet hall on Tuesday morning, drawing out the "a" in invasion. "The secular media never likes it when I say this, so let me say it twice. Man your battle stations! Ready your weapons!" He paused to take a preemptive jab at his critics, his voice going soft and scolding: "They say, 'his rhetoric is so inciting.'" Then he nearly screamed, "I came to incite a riot! Man your battle stations! Ready your weapons! Lock and load!"
Let us turn to the book of Luke. Chapter 8, verse 10. "And Jesus arose to speak to his disciples. 'Arm yourselves, my friends. Arm yourselves and let us bring a bloodbath down on all of Israel. For those who are not like us; for those who do not believe in our beliefs, they are the ones who shall perish at our hands. They have brought the demons to this earth, and like many a sinner before him, we shall slaughter them with the violence of 1000 wars. And get them dirty faggots too.'"
