Sick fundamentalist thinking:

this can become
a self fulfilling prophecy

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

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

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


The God Gag

Jesus was a little baby. Christians believe He was the Son of God. (we are all Children of God)(the mystical body).

Don’t you think Jesus would have written something himself? It was such an important mission. (As is ours.) Why allow chaos and doubt – why make the path convoluted and contentious? Why not simplicity and congruency from the Prince of Peace?

Perhaps there are other princes serving themselves – magicians to our minds. Sleight of hand artists yelling threats of damnation to distract and befuddle.

Yes, there is always something fishy in this cosmos – as if gangsters take over a loving God. Power plays. Land grabs. God gags.

I wear the walmart tie
know all the quotations
have the big book

(BLASPHEMY!)

we are called to act in fellowship.

(it is a SIN to miss the ceremonies!)

we are asked to think beyond our selves –

(the only way to save your sorry ass is to OBEY!)

beyond sex and possessions beyond security and agenda.

(the most important thing is to avoid HELL!)

we are asked to dive in and swim upstream,

(keep your nose in the BOOK!)

living our lives to serve others …

I think

December 29, 2006

I am no better
or worse
than others.

I do not pretend
special powers
or treasures
to inform you.

I can only tell you
what I think,

not what to think.

How Not to Lead

August 7, 2006

Put the maximization of profit above all ideals
call it the American dream.

Invite lobbyists to secretly make policy
declare it executive privilege.

Listen only to people who agree with you
pretend you do otherwise.

Paint all who dissent with a broad pink brush
label them traitors

Intimidate rather than dialogue
blame it on evil.

Squander a surplus.
Build a deficit.

Outsource torture.
Ignore law.

Fatten the rich.
Squeeze the poor.

Call yourself compassionate.
