What pisses me off the most is they call themselves christians while ignoring the basic tenet:
Thou shalt not KILL!
I guess they think god has his own rules for amerikans.

Christians have murdered more innocent human beings in the past 2000 years than any other group and religion in general is and has been the leading cause of War, Death, Civil Unrest, Racism, Sexism & Genocide than any other factor.
Rather disgusting really that so many people are brainwashed into Bronze age mentality in the 21st century.

I note in your blog that over 3,300 Americans have been killed in Iraq. That is 100 times the number of Virginia Tech students. I pray for the families and friends of everyone who has died in Virginia and Iraq. I mostly pray that Americans become as outraged about our soldiers dying and the genocidal number of civilians dying in Iraq. I'd like to see more stories like this blog in the mainstream media. Pray for Peace.
Peace and Light!

I'm no expert on the subject and I do agree that religion has been used as the trigger for most wars, but it seems to me that its the politicizing of religion that causes the trouble, thus our division of church and state (at least before these bastards got in)!
I just read an excellent article by Scott Ritter about the differences between the Shia and Sunni forms of Islam:
Besides the difference between Shiite and Sunni, this article makes clear the fact that they don't have the same separation between church and state in their religions. Since the smarter people see that a diplomatic solution is the better way to approach a solution why don't religious leaders have a summit to try to agree on some way to end the violence. I don't buy the excuse they have been at it for thousands of years because we ALL know now with nuclear capabilities that we are talking about the destruction of mankind. End of OUR story. So what the hell good is religion if it doesn't save gods creation no matter what religion you are?
I guess I'm agreeing with your condemnation of religion but would like to take away their holier than thou BS and get them to use they're influence to agree to disagree without all the killing.
Of coarse we still have all the illuminanti, bilderbergers, neocons, and whatever other puppet masters exist to contend with, but at least the religious thing gets taken out of the equation and they have one less trigger to pull.
This may be over simplified, but you can't blame a person for wanting to get something better started!

A Baghdad marketplace...didn't McCain just say it was like a walk down an Indiana marketplace in the summertime?

While I'm at it, does your form of praying include visualizing peace and healing? It's the best form I've found, kinda like using your feel will, without words in the way, to align with god and reprogramming our little internal computors at the same time!

The unreported story concerning VTech is that officialdom is at fault.
They did not heed a multitude of signs that a killing storm was brewing within the madman, nor did they warn that morning after two murders had occurred and the perpetrator was then and there still preparing for the worst.
What the MSM want to focus on is the crazed killer rather than the crazed officials who were "doin' a heckuva job" handling the long lasting and constantly building danger.
What happened instead was a dress-up parade where scores of swats got to parade their gear in front of cameras and strut their stuff after the massacre was over.
The security at VTech and the MSM coverning them are all hat but no cattle.

The entire Iraq debacle is likewise all hat and no cattle.

The war mongers, inspired by the mother of all neoCons, want to spread their "beautiful mind" to Iraq thru "beautiful killing", "beautiful maiming", and "beautiful oil taking".
All the while drinking the "beautiful kool aid" made from the sugars of booty and the waters of delusion.

Popular wisdom that resonate with me
We can all be wise - and give good advice - especially when we are one step removed from a fraught situation.
Hiding your feelings just because they make others uncomfortable is not a good idea. Your anger may be inconvenient, yet it is lurking just beneath the surface.
Still, you know that your subconscious is talking to you now.
Listen carefully, for something important is being said.
It's time to let your intuition take over and lead your negativity to the surface.
What are you dreaming of? You need to know because inwardly, secretly,
you are being led by your deepest subconscious urges.
These profound, almost primeval feelings are not polite.
They do not care whether or not they are socially acceptable.
They scoff at every effort you make to suppress them.
They are determined to seize your agenda and set your schedule.
Now, here's a controversial question:
if they were to be allowed to have their own way, would it really be so bad?
When your social obligations feel like chores, that's your subconscious telling you to take a break and recharge.
You might try starting a dialog with your own subconscious mind,
for that's where you'll fine the real problem.
Don't put up artificial walls just to protect yourself from non-existent childhood fears.
Your subconscious is brewing and stewing
-- and worry is taking over your mind. To combat this, look at the joy around you & get in touch with friends who make you laugh.
Obsessing about a certain mystery will only give that mystery too much power over you. Don't try to figure out why things are happening the way they're happening.
Just roll with the punches and try to get comfortable with a bit of ambiguity
-- it's a natural part of life.
on a subconscious level
you have allowed yourself to be influenced by outside forces
that are not in your interests. Take expert advice if you need it.
you are very sensitive emotionally, but the impressions you receive through your sensitivity may not be very accurate.
You have vague feelings about the circumstances and people around you,
and you may feel very confused, because you aren't sure
whether you are being realistic or unduly suspicious and fearful.
Misunderstandings with others are very likely,
because you tend to feel that others have unfairly criticized or hurt you,
although they have done nothing of the sort.
Or you may feel that someone dislikes you for the flimsiest reasons.
The reason is that this influence activates your subconscious complexes,
which take over your moods and perceptions.
Instead of reacting to the reality of what you see,
you react automatically to the subconscious process set off by what you see.

was Cho Seung-hui set up as a sacrificial?
He just came to class every day and submitted his work on time."
teachers just gave up because they realized he wasn't going to come out of the shell he was in, so they just kind of passed him over for the most part as time went on."
If the shoe were on the other foot
Old habits die hard, people like getting all tangled up in other people's business,
to get to experience the heightened drama of emotion without paying a personal cost ?

"Geronimo" ? ... are you refering to the movie conspiracy theory?

You could read it that way, but if you read the Skull and Bones chapter in the link you find out an investigation was held into what became of Geronimo's bones that leads to their sick society that seems to "own" a large section of our government.
Personally, I always like calling on the spirit of Geronimo's courage when facing a grave situation like we have now facing our country. Ya know, overwhelming battles on all fronts within govrnment for its very existence. It just seems to me, every day we don't get these scourges to democracy impeached and in jail where most normal thinking people believe they belong, is one more day they can put another 9/11 together! Its truely screwed up times when we jepordize humanity for the sake of decorum. Were talking high treason by executive privilege many times over now, and not just to fellow countrymen but to humanity. If you notice in the werewolfowitz thing Europeans are now starting to come together against these treasonous bastards and rightly so. If our elected officials can't find the courage to do what they know is the good and decent thing, I say thank you to those who will show us the enemy within.

I agree with some points within this article however as an honest Christian I believe that we should stay in Iraq for as long as possible to allow these poor (but with potential, God bless them) people to eventually see the light. I am not saying that all of Iraq should be pro-Christian, as I also respect their individual beliefs (I also have come to love them despite this), however most readers here will agree that there is a right and a wrong, and by the time those in Iraq see the right the greater world will be stronger. And we should all be happy to be a part of that. Good bless our troops.
