Bush administration's moral compass is lostQuicklink submitted by Douglas Drenkow Permalink
|Mired in political corruption of one variety or another, hamstrung (economically and spiritually) by an unjust war, and publicly shamed by the most despicable display of institutionalized racism since the slave era, as demonstrated in the unforgivably inept early response to the victims of Hurricane Katrina, the Bush administration has lost whatever moral voice it might have had ... The immorality (by any religious tradition's measure) of the proposed $50 billion budget reconciliation package is brazen. If enacted, it would prove only to increase the suffering of the already-struggling poor, including tens of thousands who lost everything along the Gulf Coast. Maybe immoral isn't the appropriate word. Downright evil is a better description.|
