The Crusades: Progress Report

Two Steps Forward. The Nation of Jesus is gradually making inroads against those primitive Moslem savages who dare to stand in our way. Our president — the Real President, not that socialist imposter — told us we were on a crusade, and Lieutenant General William Boykin confirms it. He refers to America’s military forces as the Army of God.

Hallelujah!

And Lieutenant-Colonel Gary Hensley has told soldiers in Afghanistan that as followers of Jesus Christ, they have a responsibility “to be witnesses for him. The special forces guys — they hunt men basically. We do the same things as Christians, we hunt people for Jesus. We do, we hunt them down. Get the hound of heaven after them, so we get them into the kingdom. That's what we do, that's our business.”

Bring ‘em home to Jesus!

So what if these backward people hate us? We have bigger weapons than they do, and our god can beat up their god.

And One Step Back: Obama is talking to the enemy! Our Real President sent soldiers over to that Godforsaken part of the world, to show them Ay-rabs who’s boss. And now that Muslim occupant is talking to them.

That’s appeasement! Just wait ‘til Dick Cheney hears about this.

I've read about that stupid-butt who wants the soldiers to proselytize. That should get them killed pretty quickly. Hell, if they came to my door, I'd want to kill them.

Isn't it so much fun watching the republicans continue to shoot themselves in the foot. I'm refering to the latest on Sanford and Ensign.

Bee: You're right. Imagine the response an occupying Muslim soldier would get in this country, distributing Korans that are already translated into English. It wouldn't be pretty.

Demeur: I was almost disappointed to read that Sanford turned up and he was OK. But there was an encouraging article about how the "top" GOP governors -- Sanford, Jindal, Palin, the Texas governor -- have been screwing up and how it's bringing the party down even further.

The conduct of these out-of-place evangelicals is wildly inappropriate. I can begin to understand why their superiors chose to look the other way during the New Dark Age of Bush, but that's over.

The military brings people from every conceivable background together to live and work in the closest kind of relationships and conditions. A high degree of deference and consideration is required so everyone gets along, watches out for his/her buddy and unit, and stays focused on the mission.

Few things could be more divisive and disruptive than sowing the seeds of religious intolerance, resentment and discord. That officers have been allowed to carry on this way is especially egregious.

The president should take his defense secretary aside and tell him in no uncertain terms this won't be tolerated one more day.

Those officers should be told to knock it off or expect a dishonorable discharge. Then, they should be monitored to make sure there's no backsliding.

I can't wait until we retake Acre and Jerusalem! Deus vult!

SW: I agree, the defense secretary needs to make sure this doesn't happen again. The offending officers should get one more warning (maybe) and then kicked out if there's one more violation.

Randal: Soon, God willing, the Israelis will be establishing settlements on the West Bank -- of the Rhine.

Hey, if the US military is the Army of God, then perhaps churches should be footing the bill for the half a trillion dollar defense budget. That way the government can use the money it spends on something else. You know, feed the hungry, clothe the poor, house the homeless, heal the sick.....

Lew: Yup, make the churches pay, since the army is doing this on behalf of their god. But then the church wouldn't have enough money to spend campaigning against abortion and the homosexual agenda. OMG, that would be unthinkable.

Jolly Roger got kicked off Facebook. For not using his real name.

Motherfuckers. They'll come after me next...
Did that sound too paranoid? :)

That's right, when Cheney hears about this all hell will break loose! 8-)

I think you guys are right about the GOP Goober-natorial antics. The GOP goober-nors were supposed to be the new Republican party vanguard, and lead the party out of the wilderness and back to respectability... but alas (heh!), they are proving far too human for such a great responsibility!

Sure there is the occasional foible on the part of a lefty, but it sure seems to me that it runs at least 2-to-1 in favor of the GOP in the scandal department.

I think Lew's comment is also right-on. He's right. If the definition of "war on terror" actually = "Christian Holy War", then yes, the churches should pay for it 100%. And as you say, Tom, that would mean less money for their shameless promotion of all the hot-button moral-values issues crapola.

I think it will take a while to get the military's higher-ranking holy rollers to either leave or simply cool it. Those guys were apparently given unprecendented freedom to proselytize during the Bush-Cheney regime. They have had this power for a while, probably long enough for some of this holy attitude to get slightly entrenched, and maybe at higher levels. Getting some of those guys who approve of this kind of bullshit behavior out of their positions might take a while.

For now, they will continue to be defiant about it. Looks to me like they are going to try to push it as far as they can, to see what kind of response they'll get from their Commander-In-Chief if they persist. Of course, all the while, they will conveniently forget that he is their BOSS.

The Constitution forbids the establishment of a state religion. With there therefore being a separation between church and state, and with the military being an agent of the state, it seems the Constitution should apply to these jerks. It sounds to me like these idiots are considering Christianity the official religion of our military.

Bee: I saw that post at Reconstitution where he talked about it. That really sucks. Maybe Facebook has become a subsidiary of Halliburton.

Snave: From what I remember about being in the Navy, the high-ranking lifers pretty much do whatever they want. The rules only apply to everybody else. I hope Obama will put a stop to this, but even if he does it'll take awhile for the top brass to finally realize the party's over.

Agreed, if it's a "culture" thing, it could take years...

Does anybody remember that Bush Senior referred to our first Gulf War as our "Holy War"?

Who among us didn't sing "Onward Christian Solders" in Church growing up?

Erik: I don't remember that, Bush 41 calling it a "holy war." I was against that war anyway, so that just adds another reason to be against it.
