Running Scared

According to Robert at Interstate 4 Jamming, recent Saddam Hussein Award winner, the disHonorable Thomas M. Reynolds (R-Cowardice Clarence), didn’t show up for a scheduled talk show appearance. He sent Howdy Doody in his place.

What Do You Call It?

Cue up the Dixie Chicks.

I agree with Swopa that everything that has been done by these Repulsivecans falls under the heading of a Betrayal of Trust.

Keith Olbermann, in another stellar performance, nails the Shrubbery on his lying. He has been doing yeoman service, but where is the rest of the media.

While Glenn Greenwald wonders if the Foley crimes prove the existence of G-d, I would think that it is a strange god indeed that permits the victimization of teenage boys.

Publius espouses the The White Blood Cells Theory as creating the scope of the disaster, and I can’t fault his reasoning.

Karen also looks at the corruption and sees it as sociopathic.

If you want to know about the Shrubbery read Elmer Gantry. Sinclair Lewis was in touch with the America that all of the Repusivecans claim to love. Learn what it was all about.

I’ve mentioned in a couple of places that because the pages are minors, Congress is acting in loco parentis. Congress didn’t just fail as politicians; they failed as parents. By ignoring the threat that Foley presented, they legally and morally are guilty of allowing “Uncle Mark” to molest “their children.”

I would hope voters realize that it is time to “divorce” these people as there are obviously irreconcilable differences between America and the current Republican Party.

The Test of the Prophet

The test of the prophet is the accuracy of the prophecy. A true prophet cannot produce a false prophecy.

From the Gospel of Luke chapter 6, verses 43 and 44:

For a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruit; neither doth a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

For every tree is known by his own fruit. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes.

The ends cannot justify the means, because a “corrupt tree” cannot bring forth “good fruit.” This actually made its way into legalese as an extention of the exclusionary rule, there is the Fruit of the poisonous tree or derivative evidence rule, which says that evidence gathered by illegal means, or discovered as a result of illegal conduct cannot be used. [Another reason for the courts to reject the recent Stalinist GULag Act.]

The Amish are good example of how Christians are supposed to act. As Jill notes they don’t just talk about being Christians, they act like Christians.

You don’t have to go that far to be a Christian. One of my favorite Christians is Billy Don Moyers, an ordained minister who lectured on Christian ethics at Baylor University [you can’t get more Baptist than Baylor] for a short time and then pursued his other calling, journalism. Of course, he’s generally known as just Bill Moyers, but he demonstrates the concern for the poor and downtrodden that is central to Christian belief.

At this point you might think that I was going to write something about Republicans in Washington, but I don’t see any link between them and Christianity.
