God & America

"To believe in something just because you're afraid of the consequences if you dont believe in something is no reason to believe in anything at all..." - South Park

Why are the ones that claim to be closest to God, are the first ones to send people to war to murder and to be killed? Has this thought ever crossed your mind? Is it because they believe that God is on their side, so they have the right?

Palin has taken a very strong stance against other nations in our world. In her recent interview with ABC's Charlie Gibson she was asked if Georgia joined NATO, whether the United States should go to war if the country was again invaded by Russia, Palin responded: "Perhaps so. I mean, that is the agreement when you are a NATO ally, is if another country is attacked, you're going to be expected to be called upon and help."

Now remember this is coming from someone who has no previous foreign policy experience.

If she is so close to God, why is she ready to send Americans to murder and be killed? Is not the first commandment "Thou Shall Not Kill"? There is no foot note and no exceptions. Amazing how those closest to God seem to forget all about this commandment.

Bush is quoted as saying the following about Afganistan, Iraq and Isreal. 'I'm driven with a mission from God. God would tell me, "George, go and fight those terrorists in Afghanistan." And I did, and then God would tell me, "George, go and end the tyranny in Iraq …" And I did. And now, again, I feel God's words coming to me, "Go get the Palestinians their state and get the Israelis their security, and get peace in the Middle East." And by God I'm gonna do it.'"

In 2004, a woman named Dena Schlosser claimed that God commanded her to cut off her baby's arms as well as her own limbs. After she listened to God, she was arrested for the murder of her baby. What I want to know is, what is the difference between God telling our leaders to send kids to war and this woman who was acting on what she believed was God speaking to her? To me, anyone who thinks "God" is talking to them is as crazy as this woman who cut her baby's arms off. There is no difference.

Just because you are or may be a world leader does not mean God only talks to you. God would speak to everyone and if God can tell you to send people to war to die, then He can tell this woman to cut off her baby's arms. Which to me is a sadistic God that I would never worship. Remember this is the same God who told Abraham after he made him wait almost his whole life for a son, to take the child to a mountain and sacrifice him for God. He stopped him at the last minute, but still asked him to do so. I could never worship something so evil...and most do thinking it is good? How confused we are about what is truly right and wrong...

Is it not scary that people like these religious nuts are running the nation? They are sending your children to war to die and then tell you it was a mission from God? If I was reading about this and was not from Earth, I would think this was happening a thousand years ago. This is not civil and evolved beings. It is a vicious barbaric beings who are still killing themselves over beliefs. Not facts, but beliefs......

And this deal that God is "on our side" is such a childish thing for adults to cling too. What makes America so special that God would consider all other countries evil?

Is it our high birth rate among teenagers? Is it the babies these teen mothers leave in the dumpsters? Is it cause we do not have universal health care or is it cause we are "free"? Maybe it is because we are white.....or maybe because we protect Israel? Is it because greedy corporations are controlling our Government and treating its people like consumers instead of citizens? Is it because America's politicians cannot get anything done? Is it because we are not tolerant to other people who look, act and believe different than us? Is it because we refuse to let gays get married?

When you take a deep look at our country, you see that we are the ones that are anything but close to God. People in this country let our leaders divide them with small minded issues. People in this country think everyone else shit stinks except their own. Well I got a surprise for ya. Your shit stinks just as bad if not worse. Take your head out of your ass and maybe you notice the smell.

America has an important decision to make and I hope that they research Palin and McCain. They both will just bring more wars, higher prices at the pump and maybe even the fall of America. Anyone who thinks that they are protected by God and can do no wrong usually falls from grace hard. We have seen it many times in our own society with preachers. It will happen to America if we allow it too......

I truly hope God blesses America....................
