Why did Bush pick Harriet Miers for the Supreme Court? Is it because she covered his ass on the issue of his being AWOL during Vietnam during his election campaigns? Is it because she took care of the Texas gaming commission for him? Is he hoping she will protect him from impeachment?

Breaking News from ABCNEWS.com:

BUSH: RELIGIOUS BELIEFS OF HARRIET MIERS ARE PART OF THE REASON HE PICKED HER FOR SUPREME COURT http://www.firedupamerica.com/trackback/226

James Dobson has been twisting the arms of senators to convince them that Miers is God's choice. Pat Robertson is threatening senators who oppose her with fire and brimstone. Christopher Hitchens calls it theological blackmail. "Miers and Brimstone"

This is a most egregious example of the confusion that the socalled Christian Right has sown in America over the past 35 years. By their self-serving distortion of the Bible and the teachings of Jesus, they have alienated many Americans from true Christianity. By their lying representation of the message of the Prince of Peace, they have made us forget what truth is. As He put it:

Luke 11: 52"Woe to you, scholars of the law!
You have taken away the key of knowledge.
You yourselves did not enter and you stopped those trying to enter. "

The disasters of the past few months, especially Iraq and the hurricanes, and the threats of disasters to come, are awakening America to the hypocrisy of Bush's "faith" and those of his minions. Americans are rediscovering the meaning of words like "truth", "justice", "love".

The God of the Bible is the God of all people on planet earth, whether His/Her name be Jehovah, Allah, Jesus, Brahma, Wakan Tanka. The God of humans stands for peace, love, truth and justice. This God will empower anyone who seeks to serve Him/Her, and give us strength to tell the truth, strip the imposters of their sheeps' clothing, and bring them to justice. (see The Way of Holiness by Robert Mendelson at www.armageddonoftheego.com)

In the name of the Prince of Peace, Carol Wolman
