Designated Driver of North AmericaDESIGNATED DRIVER OF NORTH AMERICA - A semi-personal/semi-political blog, a Canadian view on the world.

The U.S. runs around excitedly blowing things up, while we follow behind with the car keys, shaking our heads."

I love this so much. Look at this entry on the Conservative Voice website. That site is urging its readers to boycott stores like Target and Federated Department Stores (and there've been boycotts against, of all stores, Wal-Mart as well).

I think you're exactly right, Richard.
I also think he'd laugh at these people's belief that they're any different from the temple money-changers in his own time, using God and his work to make a financial killing and control other people.
I always come back to that biblical quote when I see these people behaving like this. Matthew 7-something, I think, where people at the last judgememt say to Christ, "Lord, Lord, look at all the things we did in your name," and he says, "I never knew you. Depart from me into everlasting fire."
If these people's beliefs about a last judgement turn out to be true, I have a feeling they're going to be very, very surprised at who Christ claims to know, and who he doesn't.
Today in Borders Books in Detroit, I saw a book: The Judge Who Stole Christmas. Judging [no pun intended] by the description in Amazon.com, it's all about how Christians prevail against the ACLU trying to turn everybody into atheists by keeping a Nativity Scene off government property. A book, mind you. It takes a while to get books published, usually. Maybe I have a nasty suspicious mind, or maybe the "We Must Defend Christmas Against The Nonbelievers" campaign has been a while in the planning?
Yes, I think this latest blitz has really been coordinated and planned in advance, for the last few years. But even when I was a fundie, up to the late 80's, we were working up to it. I remember frequent conversations about what strategy we could use to "take Christmas back for Christ," as part of our big "take over the government for Christ" plan.Post a Comment
