How the Republicans Stole Christmas

Chapter 2 – Killing in the Name of Jesus (cont’d)
Note ----Yesterday title on the Blog should be Report No. 12 on David Carlin's Book
It leaves a bad taste in my mind for anyone using the Jesus name to score political points and also to speculate on the motives of Christians on war and peace issues. It is the regular media ploy to denigrate and ridicule all Christians and that includes Catholics.
The CINOP Bill Press does have some good points and food for thought in this chapter. Here are several of the topics: Fighting a Just War, Fighting a Religious War in Iraq, The Day of Rapture is Near, No Such Thing as a “Just” Preemptive War, etc. However, as a Christian, Bill has an irrational anger against the Christian Coalition. If they had only supported his political party, all would be well. The Christian Coalition as with the pro-life movement has been marginalized, made fun off and often ignored by the secular media. Bill spouts the propaganda of the secularist agenda.
Let us take a historical perspective backwards from the 1990’s first and then to the 1930’s. From a tape of about 1990, what does the Christian Coalition believe?
Their goal is decisions for Christ throughout the world. They are Christian and not ashamed of Jesus and that is why they are called the Christian Coalition. We are the only society where the elites (Academic and Moneyed) have turned against themselves and tried to destroy the country they live in. If we are not aware of our enemies we will lose.
The first thing we believe is that Almighty God rules in the affairs of men and nations ignore his commandments at their peril.
The second thing they believe is enunciated in the Declaration of Independence. We hold these truths to be self-evident. All men are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights. They believe that the liberty we have in America does not come from Washington, D.C. It comes from Almighty God. Government did not give it to us and government can’t take it away. Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness are fundamental rights. As Christians and as citizens of America, the primary right given by God is for the elderly and the unborn child. Furthermore, we resolve that and will not rest and will continue to assail the Legislature, Courts, and Liberals until every unborn child is safe in his mother’s womb in America. (to be cont’d)
In Report Card # 9, I noted that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of San Francisco, a (CINOP) Catholic was one of the 48 representatives who wrote a letter to the U.S. Bishops warning them that the “threat of withholding a sacrament will revive latent anti-Catholic prejudice.” This bothers me a lot. Maybe, you can figure it out. Well, thanks for the warning CINOPS. Catholic Laity organizations are so timid. Resolutions should be passed condemning this kind of indirect blackmail of our Catholic Bishops.
Ex-Catholics trying to justify their political positions can be very dangerous. During the 1930’s, there were quite a number of pseudo-Catholics in leadership positions in the National Socialist Party in Germany. Ask the survivors of the Holocaust. Hitler and Goebbels were ex-Catholics.
