Jesus frequently denounced their hypocrisy:
After Jesus had spoken,
a Pharisee invited him to dine at his home.
He entered and reclined at table to eat.
The Pharisee was amazed to see
that he did not observe the prescribed washing before the meal.
The Lord said to him, "Oh you Pharisees!
Although you cleanse the outside of the cup and the dish,
inside you are filled with plunder and evil.
Did not the maker of the outside also make the inside?
But as to what is within, give alms,
and behold, everything will be clean for you."
The Bush Pharisees are filled with plunder and evil. Their utter hypocrisy is exposed by recently released conversations between Bush and his minions, deriding the Evangelical Christians. These are the very people on whom they rely for votes, and thus forlegitimacy.
Today Bush signs The Military Tribunal Act, passed by a craven Congress a couple of weeks ago. This Act authorizes him as Commander-in-Chief (on active duty as long as there is a "war on terror", of course) to suspend habeas corpus, eavesdrop at will, and treat any American citizen as an "enemy combatant" with no legal rights whatsoever. In other words, this Congress has just handed Bush absolute power over the American people. Is it too late to depose the hypocritical tyrant?
We have a Congressional election in 3 weeks. And there IS an alternative to voting in the same bunch of corrupt cowardly people, who, under Pelosi's leadership, will never challenge Bush's dictatorship.
