- Recently the US Secretary of State, Condi Rice stated
- "The Lord is going to come on time - if we just
- For all two of you on planet Earth who don't understand
the significance of what this means, the US Secretary of State has publically
acknowledged the US governments allegiance to a higher power, which is
supposed to be the accepted excuse for government ineptitude and incompetence.
Frankly, this statement by a government official borders on the verge of
- The neocon junta in the White House wholeheartedly subscribes
to the literal viewpoint that Jesus is indeed coming - and very soon, which
is the tendered reason (and widely supported) for their attrocious behavior
and gross mediocrity. In other words, worry not about governmental malfeasence,
lying, torture, murder, environmental destruction, the deaths of hundreds
of thousands of people, or even government sponsored terrorism, the Lord
of Lords and King of Kings is soon to come. Jesus will fix everything.
The great tragedy of this belief system is that it is nothing more then
a modern myth, steeped in fiery indigination and gross interpretation and
a deliberate and malicious ignorance of of facts and history.
- Subscribing to this belief is the architects of the Project
for a New American Century (PNAC) which includes Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld,
Paul Wolfowitz, Richard Pearle, and Governor Jeb Bush, among others. And
of course, the Commander in Chief, George Bush and the US Secretary of
State, Condoleeza Rice.
- In 1997, the PNAC proposed U.S. participation in three
theater-scale wars. This was before the s(election) of Herr Bush to the
Whitehouse - and quite noticably, before 9/11 and the alleged "war
on terror". Here we find the origin of the "axis of evil",
Iraq, Iran and North Korea being the (currently) targeted rogue regimes.
The PNAC called for the first war to take place against Iraq, ostensibly
to establish a democracy in the Arab world. Figuring quite prominently
in their reasoning was oil and strategic location. The Bush administration
justified the U.S. invasion of Iraq on its absolute and promised certainty
that Iraq's evil ruler Saddam had both weapons of mass destruction and
ties to Al Qaeda, all which proved to be utterly false and downright fabricated.
"Thou shalt not bear false witness". Evidently, lying doesn't
bother these rapture-ready Christians.
- Just prior to the (s)election of George Bush in 2000,
the PNAC released a paper that called for U.S. invasion of Iraq whether
or not Saddam was still in power. They also acknowledged the need for a
"critical event to galvanize American public opinion" to support
such an invasion, thus began the evil machinations of 9/11 and 3,000 sacrificed
Americans lives. "Thou shalt not kill". But this was only the
beginning of the oblation to be offered
- We also have the Downing Street memo proving the war
was preplanned - long before this Administration attempted to force the
story of "terrorist" attacking the WTC. There has already been
written a few million or so words on this subject, that the war was illegal,
false and the so-called justications for the war were outright fabrications
(and now widely forgotten in the aftermath of Katrina) - but not much has
actually been said of the religious reasons held by many in Bush Adminstration,
which has somehow morphed into an unlimited and divinely endorsed license
to kill, maim, torture, lie, fabricate and distort whatever they want.
Somehow this repulsive behavior still leaves these neocon mass murderers
ready for the "return of the Lord" when Jesus comes back for
the "good" Christians.
- Herein lies the ridiculous irony of their position -
the problem with this belief is it is provably wrong. Not just the hypocritical
actions of the supposedly "faithful", but the doctrine itself
is in gross error. It was not a doctrinal belief taught and held by the
early disciples of the church (those who lived closest to the time of Christ),
nor was it taught and believed by later generations - until as recently
as 150 years ago when it sprang forth from an extremist movement and eventually
became widely accepted.
- The Christian Bible actually has a lot to say about this
subject - and the behavior of the modern converts to Christianity, but
this doctrinal evidence is being widely ignored - or deliberately suppressed.
This should be no cause for wonder, when you consider that the alleged
"evidence" of the return of Christ for the faithful also condemns
the very actions the "faithful and true" are committing!
- The belief in a rapture stems from the false interpretation
of several biblical passages and modern interpretation. It is worth noting
that the early church did not believe in the rapture doctrine as many fundamantelists
profess, but understood the teachings of Christ to mean something else
- The strange part about this particular cultish belief,
is the fact that our own government is very much involved in nourishing
this belief throughout the world - like the grossly misguided statement
recently made by Condeleeza Rice.
- The rapture doctrine, as it is taught and believed today,
vaguely details the bodily removal of Christians from the earth, but only
after certain world events have occurred. It is these events in which the
Bush Administration and the PNAC are actively trying to orchestrate. In
other words, they are trying to force the rapture and the return of Christ
by deliberately engaging in actions toward their prophetic "fulfillment".
The contradiction and impossibility of this pugnacious behavior is unconscionable.
- A great many people already know this, meaning they are
aware of the fundamentalists belief of the neocons, but still fail to understand
the true content of what it actually means for the entire world. Evidenced
already by the actions of the Bush Administration, the plot to force Jesus's
return is also poorly understood by non-believers - which is quite notably,
the majority of the world. Fundementalist Christians (thankfully) remain
a minority among Christians and Christians themselves, are still a minority
among the worlds religions. But the danger is when the world's superpower
is quite literally hell-bent on forcing prophetic history upon the world
citizens - at any cost.
- It will be difficult to convey in few words the depth
and breadth of all this, but I will try. The PNAC and the Bush Administration,
with the support of the fundamentalist churches worldwide are seeking to
deliberately force World War III on the world, which will include the destruction
of most of the Middle East (notably Iran and Syria among others) and the
United States. This war will be between Israel, Russia, China and the United
States and will even include a civil war within our own borders. This war
will employ the exchange of nuclear weapons, with tens of millions of innocent
deaths. The entire purpose of this war, is to create the conditions for
the return of Christ on earth and the establishment of New Jeruselem in
Israel. This would also include the rebuilding of the Temple Mount in Israel,
allegedly the "sign" for which the world awaits the heralding
of the return of Christ.
- That's what they are looking for - and that's what they
are trying to accomplish. The ensuing worldwide resource destruction and
environmental damage to the planet is meaningless (now you know why Bush
& Co. care little for the environment - they don't plan on living here
very long). This would also account for George Bush's view of the future,
in which he has stated "There won't be any people". There won't
- not if he is allowed to have his way.
- I would not have a problem with a world leader holding
beliefs in private. But that is not what is occurring within America today
- these beliefs are now dictating national and international policy. They
have nothing to do with securing America's future, because the neocons
do not believe in a future world and all of their decisions are based upon
- It should be noted that a careful examination of the
doctrinal belief can be uncovered as simply wrong, with no basis for this
"end time" rapture belief being taught in the Bible. So what
then are they doing? Are they really that ignorant of history and fact
and truly deceived by the lying preachers and teachers of today?
- It's possible (but unknown) that the Bush Admnistration
already knows this. With the wealth of bright and intelligent people available
to the world's superpower, I find it unfathomable that they don't understand
the real truth concering the rapture and the Bible itself. It just doesn't
make sense that these supposedly intelligent and bright people would fall
for the view fed to the masses that a rescue operation is being planned
from the sky to save mankind from the error of his ways. But then again,
they just might be that stupid. At this point in our downward spiral to
destruction, I wouldn't put anything past these people. I'm probably guilty
of thinking that they are somehow different then everyone else, when they're
probably not. Just greedier.
- Allowing this fundementalist belief in the White House
is proving to be exceedingly dangerous to the world as we have already
seen. Any excuse is justifiable if it means that the path to Jesus is being
taken. Moreover, gross negligence and ineptitude is utterly unaccountable.
These "sins" of commission or ommission are somehow exempt from
any judgement or accountability to the people and apparently, God Himself.
- The worldwide political landscape cannot afford to allow
religious belief to govern political decisions. America cannot afford this
- people are being killed daily by the actions and inactions and the decisions
of these neocon fundamentalist. Wanton resource destruction and laying
waste to the environment are also occurring under their extremely dubious
leadership which includes vast species extinctions, unchecked global warming,
rising temperatures on land and sea, widespread pollution and ocean degradation.
These are just some of the global catastrophes now underway. Can we actually
afford to let this continue?
- The solution to this is simple, but potentially complex
to implement. The neocon agenda must be stopped cold, dead in its tracks
before the world suffers the unholy wrath and indignation of a fiery nuclear
conflagaration, a scenario which is a desired part of the neocon fundamentalist
agenda as they seek to force the rapture upon the world. This cannot be
allowed to happen if we hope to have a survivable and living future.
- For those of us who do believe in the actual, literal,
bodily return of Jesus Christ from heaven to earth, the NeoCon agenda smells
to high heaven, to say the least. We know the hand of God cannot be forced
by the idiotic actions of men, much less their politics. Worse, for these
bloodthirsty warmongers to actually believe that they will not be held
accountable at the Second Coming is even more repugnant. It certainly reveals
their unique insanity. Judging from history, maybe it's not so unique.
Either way, it's truly pathetic. Though I'm sure in her inadequate, fumbling
way Secretary Rice was simply making a common statement of comfort from
her Christian faith, it definitely had no place in relation to the current
disaster. It fell short, sounding like a pipe-dreaming lunatic.
