the devil makes me do it

Rather than deny
our beastly origins,

let us embrace
the little monsters.

We cannot teach those
we do not embrace.

We tend to kill them.

Why is the far right the keepers of who is “American” and who is
not? I would leave that to the Native Americans.

To my Roman Catholic brothers and sisters: Go ahead and vote on one
issue. But remember, your votes put George W. Bush in office. Therefore, you share in the responsibility for making this world a geometrically nastier and more impoverished place in which to birth a child. (Thereby, ironically, increasing the probability of an already overwhelmed pregnant mother choosing abortion) You are so preoccupied with the unborn that you have allowed the born to be doomed to the cesspools of the ever expanding slums of this earth.

Always remember, it was the Bush administration who dismissed the warnings about bin Laden from the Clinton people. Bush was such a myopic fool.

I believe the neo-cons half wanted something to happen. They wanted an excuse to invade Iraq; a Gulf of Tonkin, a “remember the Maine”. They got more shit than they ever anticipated on September 11. Just as they got more shit than anticipated when they invaded Iraq. Did they suppose their “enemies” were like those in a Bond movie: diabolical but relatively impotent and easily defeated? I can see Bush, Chaney and Rove consulting the library (a bible and 3,000 DVDs) to review how James Bond escaped the bad guys by sledding down a ski slope in a cello case. They surely drooled on their ties.

Is the bloody saga of the white man’s displacement, erasure, and
marginalization of Native Americans a model for Christian relations with Muslims? Or Muslim’s with Christians? Convert or hurt! Only madmen would think that, you say.

All that is required –
blind obedience

to the keepers
of the “truth”.

Belief in the The Apocalypse of John posits peace as unattainable
until the second coming of Christ.

Until there is a worldwide conflagration and a Christ based theocracy –
peace is considered impossible.

How can Armageddonists conduct sane foreign policy when they believe in such inevitabilities?


fear enslaves us

September 11, 2008

each place –
its own box
of terror.

concrete god

Is God not concrete
enough for you?

Do you need more
than knowing?

Do you need
tricks and promises?
channelers and experts?
pomp and ceremony?

the fear of hell?

stupid then dying

What is to fear in a Sea of Joy?
What is to fear in a Great Spirit?
What is to fear in a Loving God?

and what about the violence
once they leave the womb?

God Is Free

January 27, 2008

You don’t have to get cleansed
cleared or confirmed

You don’t have to pay tribute

God is as free as your next breath
your next smile
