The Republican Party loves to wrap itself in a cloak of right wing Christian righteousness. They talk about God and the bible and the teachings of their supposed Master Jesus Christ. Yet under inspection it becomes clear that their wrapping of moral superiority is transparent and their very foundation a hypocritical deceit that is so obvious as to be the very thing their own book warns them against; the false prophets, the liars, the greedy and the hypocrites.

Nothing is more blatant as to their sham as to their adherence that we must pursue victory in Iraq to honor the dead soldiers and their families. True honoring of the sacrifice of our soldiers would be to immediately pull them out of a National Mortal Sin caused by the willful and knowingly deceitful lies that were spewed as obvious false witness against a country that did not attack us, had nothing to do with 911 or Al Qaeda.

That's right, False Witness, a mortal sin that according to their teachings forever condemns one to hell. In addition the Iraq invasion has now been shown by the Oil Law they salivate over to be about the coveting of Iraqis resources...again, another National Mortal Sin. Do they care that they support actions that their God made quite clear could never be redeemed by contrition, confession, or God's grace? I guess eternal damnation is not a big deal

The sinful nature of their hypocrisy continues with of course the ultimate violation of Jesus's most sacred teachings which is to love thy neighbor. Had the US responded after 911 with a deep soul searching and a willingness to move forward without violence the so called Christian Nation they love to claim we are would have advanced the teachings of their Master in ways that would have shown the power of love and provided an example that would have won more hearts and minds in the world than could be imagined. Instead they spit in Jesus's face by seeking revenge and killing innocent civilians with urban cluster bombs and the insane justification of acceptable murder in the guise of 'collateral damage'.

Many of our politicians that are the most rabid right wing righteous hypocrites are in love with tax cuts for the richest among us and the dehumanization of the poor. How do they reconcile Peter's and Matthew’s teachings of Jesus where it is clear that the "it is easier for a camel to go through a needle's eye than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God'.

Jesus teaches, ""If you would be perfect, go, sell what you possess and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow me." "Truly, I say to you, it will be hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven." Oh but the abolishment of the estate tax is high on their agendas of important issues so their families can stay rich forever and further defecate on their Masters teachings for eternity.


The conservaive GOP Christian right lie, they deceive, and they live for Mammon/Money above all else. TheChristian right loves to tell us the bible is the literal word of God, yet they wipe themselves with its teachings with barely a thought. Jesus clarifies things even more fully for them in Matthew 19 "You shall not kill, You shall not commit adultery, You shall not steal, You shall not bear false witness." Yet their leaders cheat on their wives (ala Mcain), attempt to steal (ala Iraq Oil Law and Corruption), kill innocent with nary a thought, and bear false witness against an entire Nation that they are currently destroying and poisoning.

The legions of self-righteous Christian hypocrites and Republicans also like to glorify the death of Jesus and his sacrifice yet fail to realize the event that spurred his crucifixion, which was the turning over of the tables of the merchants and money changers and their defiling of the sacred space by their commercialism and profit centered motives. They fail to understand that their Master condemned and died for this one simple lesson that they step on daily with their adherence to capitalism and profit that exists only through the exploitation of people and resources for their own selfish gain.

When Christians who follow the Republican right wake up and open their eyes to the false prophets of their murdering, money grubbing hypocritical leaders they will see that they have been deceived and led astray. But unfortunately they are to concerned about judging others and removing the speck from their eye rather than the importance of looking inward and removing the log in their own eye that blinds them from the truth of their own hypocritical being.

 

It is time for all good men and women to stand up and be ready to sacrifice for the earth and children! It ain't going to be easy destroying the old and birthing the new. A world of community, creativity, fun, and local food production is just (more...)
