"These are the times that try men's souls...I believe in the equality of man; and I believe that religious duties consist in doing justice, loving mercy, and endeavoring to make our fellow-creatures happy…The World is my country, all mankind are my brethren, and to do good is my religion."-Tom Paine

Candidate Bush claimed his favorite Philosopher was Jesus Christ, but President Bush has made a mockery of the philosophy of The Prince of Peace, which is:

THOU SHALL NOT KILL and you must LOVE your enemies and do good towards them, you must forgive to be forgiven and the PEACEMAKERS are the children of God.

Jesus NEVER said it was OK to bomb, torture or occupy another! He was also SILENT about the Mystery of Gay LOVE, unlike the neo-con, neo-Christian militant minded supremacist, such as Ann Coulter, John Hagee, Hal Lindsay, Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwell, who all lust for Armageddon for they adhere to an escapist philosophy and hope for a rapture that will deliver them out of the misery of the world. 

“The only way to peace is peace; the only way is nonviolence. The only answer to Israeli nuclear weapons, their aggression, occupation and oppression, and the wall and refugee camps is to answer them with truth and a peaceful voice. When I became the spy for the world, I did it all for the people of the world. If governments do not report the truth, and if the media does not report the truth, then all we can do is follow our consciences. Daniel Ellsberg did, the woman from Enron did, and I did. The United States needs to wake up and see the truth that Israel is not a democracy, unless you are a Jew. Israel is the only country in the Middle East where America can right now find WMDs. America can also find where basic human rights have been denied Christians: right here in Israel.”Mordecahi Vanunu, the whistleblower of Israel's WMD Program, to this reporter, June 2005.

IMAGINE how much better for America and the world it would be, to actually FOLLOW the Philosophy of JC such as the non-Christian professing Thomas Jefferson and Tom Paine did, than to make a mockery of Jesus by claiming to love and follow him and negate the philosophy.

During President Bush's Second Inaugural Address he promised: "There is no justice without freedom. There can be no human rights without liberty...All who live in tyranny and hopelessness can know the United States will not ignore your oppression, or excuse your oppressors. When you stand for liberty, we will stand with you."

The second I heard him voice this altruistic sentiment, I wondered if he even gave a thought to Palestine and concluded; he did NOT! 

"To break a vicious cycle of violence, it takes courageous civil and political Leadership and people willing to take risks for peace. Being willing to take the first step, …and especially to see the humanity of the other…hope for the future depends on each of us taking nonviolence into our hearts and minds and developing new and imaginative structures which are nonviolent and life-giving for all. Some people will argue that this is too idealistic. I believe it is very realistic. I am convinced that humanity is fast evolving to this higher consciousness. For those who say it cannot be done, let us remember that humanity learned to abolish slavery.

"Our task now is no less than the abolition of violence and war...we are living in a miraculous time. Everything is changing and everything is possible…If we want to reap the harvest of peace and justice in the future, we will have to sow seeds of nonviolence, here and now, in the present.
