Just another demonstration of how Christians use their Bible to justify violence and intolerance. As I’ve said many times before, violence is at the CORE of Christianity. It’s built into the very fabric of their scriptures. That’s why the history of Christianity is replete almost 1700 years of bloodshed and intolerance.
The final lines of Joshua 1 (from the OT) says it all:
Whoever rebels against your word and does not obey your words, whatever you may command them, will be put to death. Only be strong and courageous!
Getting back to the White House under GWB, I agree with Pharyngula’s final comment:
We lived under the rule of monsters for eight years. We can’t just pretend it didn’t happen, we need to fight back in the courts to condemn these people and their actions.
