The duty of Christians to impeach Bush and Cheney

Christians have a duty to denounce Bush for his crimes, and see that he and Cheney are impeached.

A recent news story says "Southern Baptists split over politics".  They are arguing about whether or not to be involved in the political process.  How hypocritical!

Christians, especially evangelicals, helped put Bush into power.  They believed Pat Robertson, who "anointed" him to lead America.  They thought he would bring about God's kingdom on earth.

Now they don't like what he has done, so they want to retreat from politics.  Sour grapes.

Luke 6:44 " For each tree is known by its own fruit. For men do not gather figs from thorns, nor do they pick grapes from a briar bush.

The evangelical Christians who helped put Bush in power are accessories to his many crimes.  They should confess their error and repent.

The "fruit" of Bush's presidency is poisonous.  Two illegal invasions and occupations, based on lies.  Massive transfers of wealth from the poor and middle class to the rich, including Bush and Cheney.  Corruption, incompetence, sex and money scandals galore- a briar bush indeed for those who put their hopes in a "Christian" president.

Bush has broken many international treaties, which are the supreme law of the land- the Geneva conventions, the Nuremberg principles, laws against napalm and cluster bombs, etc.

And shredded the US Constitution, which says that "We the People" are sovereign, the source of authority, and the president is a public servant.  Bush seeks to restore the monarchy cast off during the American Revolution.

Bush has overruled laws passed by Congress with his signing statements, broken the wiretapping laws, subverted the judicial process.

What is happening here is described in 2Thess 2: 3-12: 

 3Let no one in any way deceive you, for it (the Kingdom of God) will not come unless the apostasy (Bush's presidency) comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction,

 4who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, displaying himself as being God.

 5Do you not remember that while I was still with you, I was telling you these things?

 6And you know what restrains him now, so that in his time he will be revealed.

 7For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only he who now restrains will do so until he is taken out of the way.

 8Then that lawless one will be revealed whom the Lord will slay with the breath of His mouth and bring to an end by the appearance of His coming;
